Cleaning is done on a large scale in the commercial and industrial sectors, and cleaning robots help to save labor costs, which in turn assists the companies involved in these sectors in reducing operation costs, ultimately propelling the market's growth.

These robots replace manual labor by saving both time and cost. Also, these robots are increasingly used in the steel-cleaning and blasting of vessels, cleaning storage tanks in the oil and gas industry, and cleaning metal structures in industrial plants, which is likely to stimulate the market's growth.

However, the high price tag attached to cleaning robots is limiting the market's growth. A cleaning robot is more expensive than a conventional vacuum cleaner. Fewer people can afford it.

The Covid-19 pandemic's emergence positively influenced the demand for cleaning robots. The International Federation of Robotics reports that when cleanliness standards increased in response to the worldwide crisis, the utilization of professional cleaning robots surged by 92%. To maintain hygiene, more than 50 service robot manufacturers produced disinfection robots that used UV light and cleaning agents. Even after the pandemic, there is great potential for disinfection robots in healthcare facilities.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Robotic cleaning, when combined with data reporting technology, helps fleet managers to make operation easier and help to track and monitor the cleaning performance. This technology helps improve efficiency and operating time, reduce errors and identify areas of improvement. Such factors are expected to boost the market’s growth.

Rising innovations in the field of robotics for cleaning purposes are anticipated to accelerate the market’s growth. For instance, in 2021, a French company Poralu Marine launched the Serial Cleaner product line set of 4 robotic cleaners to clean and depollute coastlines, beaches, and oceans. One of them was BeBot, for cleaning beach.

The demand for cleaning robots that can speed up household cleaning has increased as the number of working men and women has increased in emerging economies. The use of these robots in homes is growing due to the Internet of Things and Home Area Networks (HAN) technologies.

Due to the growing use of barcodes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for localization and self-positioning, these systems are becoming more popular in commercial applications.
