Vacuum Cleaners Market Overview
Vacuum cleaners are mechanical devices used to scrub floors and carpets through suction. Vacuum cleaners are available in different sizes and models in the market including canister, handheld, upright, stick, battery-powered, central vacuum cleaners and others.
The global vacuum cleaner industry is witnessing significant market growth owing to the widespread use by numerous end-users. The market is driven by various factors such as the rising population. The growing competition for energy efficiency and environmentally sustainable vacuum cleaners provides a range of growth opportunities. The increasing numbers of consumers who are at risk of asthma and allergy are now using vacuum cleaners with High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestor (HEPA) filtration technology.
The canister is the leading segment in the global vacuum cleaner industry and is expected to continue to maintain its leading position due to easy operation and maintenance. The models are equipped with a motor and dust collector (using a bag or without bag) in a separate unit. The upright model will also hold a significant market share because it is still favoured by consumers due to its smaller size and lightweight. The robotic vacuum cleaners are expected to grow at a rapid pace as the residential sector strongly favour automatic and less time-consuming cleaning solutions over traditional cleaners. The robotic vacuum cleaner product is packed with smart features such as self-drive mode, smart sensors, self-charging availability and even lasers that offer enhanced computing and cleaning power. They can be controlled remotely from any place by using smartphone applications.
The technological developments in vacuum cleaners have rendered consumers to be more comfortable in their activities. Since the introduction of robot vacuum cleaners, the manufactures have made substantial investments to minimise noise, improve the battery power and to reduce the size.
The online sale has also boosted the vacuum cleaners as sellers offer a range of discounted products to lure buyers. The offline sale is projected to grow at a slower rate as they are influenced by rising online sales as well as due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. Vacuum cleaner companies are looking for various ways to tackle the risks of the pandemic and help increase offline sales.
The vacuum cleaner market is dominated by a wide range of manufacturers such as Dyson, TTI Group, AB Electrolux, Bosch/Siemens, Philips, LG, Panasonic and Samsung.
