The modern residential robotic vacuum cleaners have made cleaning of residential vicinities much more stress-free than it used to be in olden days. Technological innovation in vacuum cleaning equipment is enabling easy cleaning of stubborn marks, hard-to-reach corners and wide areas including pools and floors. Such robotic vacuum cleaning technologies are expected to gain more popularity as demand for requirement-specific cleaning tools continues to rise. These new-age robotic vacuum cleaners are also called as ‘robovacs’ and are in demand for their highly efficient cleaning capability. Some of the latest robovacs come with features such as self-charging, laser vision and room mapping. Moreover, intelligent sensors are being equipped to these robotic cleaners in order to reduce human intervention while cleaning.
Factors such as expanding urban settlements and on-the-go lifestyle are necessitating better housekeeping solutions. According to the latest data released by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global residential robotic vacuum cleaner market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 12% between 2016 and 2021 to reach US$ 2,475.0 Million.
Millennials Show More Interest toward Automated Cleaning Tools
Higher importance to air purification, busier lifestyle, rising living standards in developing regions and limited time for household chores are some of the factors that are likely to drive the demand for residential robotic vacuum cleaners in the near future. Further, rising disposable income and increasing number dual-income families are accounting for the increasing sales of vacuum cleaners worldwide.
Manufacture are focused on meeting all the consumer expectations, which is why the latest models of robotic cleaners are more compact in size, portable, lightweight and easy to operate facilitating cleaning and mopping purposes on a daily basis. Increasing health awareness as well as the growing urgency to achieve a sustainable hygienic ecosystem is urging the need for highly effective automated home cleaning systems. Similarly, higher occurrence of airborne diseases such as anthrax, measles influenza, cryptococcosis, asthma and tuberculosis is urging people across the globe to get the best quality cleaning equipment for their residence. HEPA filter is a common component attached in residential robotic vacuum cleaners. Growing preference for indoor air pollution control system in both developed and developing countries is further boosting the sales of such cleaning systems.
Owing to enhanced functionality and superior performance consumers are opting for robotic vacuum cleaners over the conventional cleaning equipment. Moreover, manufacturers have introduced fashionable bag-less vacuum cleaners that are successfully attracting customer across the globe. Emerging countries such as China, Brazil and India are rapidly adopting automated cleaning systems, which is considered as a key factor driving the popularity of residential robotic vacuum cleaners in these regions. Meanwhile, demand for robotic cleaner remains robust in Europe and North America.
Some of the leading companies that manufacture residential robotic vacuum cleaners are, Dyson Inc., Neato Robotics, Inc., Robot Corporation, Philips Electronics N.V, Pentair plc, Ecovacs Robotics, Inc., Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Hayward Industries, Inc., Yujin Robot, Co., Ltd., and Milagrow Business & Knowledge Solutions (Pvt.) Limited.
