Overview: Global Floor Cleaning Robot Market
Floor cleaning robots and other domestic service robots are on the verge of becoming an integral part of smart homes. The current market for floor cleaning robot is driven by various factors, which include rising preference for connected home appliances, changing lifestyle along with shifting customer needs, and increasing labor costs tied with growing preference for service robots. Additionally, increasing potential for AI-empowered cleaning robots in commercial applications and emerging urban middle-class households in developing nations are anticipated to offer new business opportunities for the vendors in the floor cleaning robot market during the forecast period. However, consumer concerns related to capital cost and cleaning performance are identified as restraints likely to hinder the progression of the floor cleaning robot market during the forecast period.
The availability of labor for household services has become a serious challenge, and this is expected to even become worse in developed economies in the coming years. In the past, the concept of robots in domestic environments sounded like a luxury, but due to striking local labor force, the use of service robots for the internal environment is becoming an economically sensible choice, particularly across high labor-cost countries. Moreover, increasing investments in incorporating advanced technologies, i.e., AI, to develop robots for domestic environment is expected to accelerate the penetration of service robots in households. These factors, in turn, are fuelling the growth of the floor cleaning robot market during the forecast period.
The concept of domestic floor cleaning robots is in the introductory stage of the adoption curve. Any new home appliances introduced in the market are generally viewed in two aspects from the consumer side: “Necessity” and “Luxury”. Earlier, washers and refrigerators were initially viewed as a luxury appliance. Later, these products became mainstream due to intensive marketing efforts and increased customer awareness regarding the potential benefits in terms of power, time efficiency, and return on investment. Following the same analogy, the penetration of domestic service robots is anticipated to increase in the coming years.
The progression of domestic floor cleaning robots is in the introduction stage, where most purchases are done after determining the cost-performance ratio of the product. Consumers have concerns related to the compatibility of the floor cleaning robot with their house environment and the long-term benefits of the product. In the coming years, the penetration of floor cleaning robots is expected to increase with the growing trend of home automation. Moreover, rising customer preference in modernizing the cleaning equipment, particularly among higher- and upper-median income household groups, is expected to fuel the growth of floor cleaning robots during the forecast period.
