Robotic vacuum cleaner, more commonly known as ‘robovac’ is extensively used across the globe for cleaning residential spaces including gutters, pools, and floors. These robotic vacuum cleaners comprise programming software, cleaning system, mobile base, batteries, and other equipment. They use intelligent programming and spinning brushes so as to reach tight corners and hard-to-reach surfaces. Most of these vacuum cleaners are equipped with advanced features including room mapping, self-charging, laser vision, and more.
Less time for household cleaning activities is one of the major factors that is expected to boost the demand for robovacs in the next few years around the world. Residential robotic vacuum cleaners help in performing many tasks including cleaning and mopping in a time-saving manner. In most of the developed nations, employing domestic helpers is very expensive or even prohibited. In such situations, robotic vacuum cleaner proves to be a savior and can help by completing tasks that are mostly allocated to domestic helpers. Robotic vacuum cleaners, which are equipped with security features including alerts to owners in case of fires and intruders are anticipated to penetrate the global market. On the flip side, the battery life of the residential robotic vacuum cleaner is the major factor that is projected to curb the growth of this market, as they consume very high power resulting in reduced operating time.
On the basis of geography, the Europe residential robotic vacuum cleaner market is anticipated to lead holding the highest market share. Europe is also expected to remain dominant in the coming years, followed by the Middle East and Africa market.
Analyzing the profits associated with robovacs, many market players expanded their product portfolio in order to enjoy the competitive advantage of this market. These players are taking constant efforts to introduce advanced features for consumers. These players are spending a whopping amount on research and development, which indirectly is boosting the demand for robotic vacuum cleaners in the coming years. Some of the key players engaged in this industry include Milagrow Business & Knowledge Solutions, Yujin Robot, Co., Ltd., Pentair plc, Philips Electronics N.V, Neato Robotics, Inc., Samsung Electronics, Dyson Inc., iRobot Corporation, Ecovacs Robotics, Inc., and Hayward Industries, Inc.
