Report Overview

The global industrial and commercial floor scrubbers market size was valued at USD 3.66 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% from 2020 to 2027. Industrial and commercial floor scrubbers are cleaning machines that are used to effectively and efficiently clean floors. These machines are a replacement for traditional mops and buckets. The market is driven by various benefits offered by scrubbers over traditional cleaning methods, including high cleaning efficiency, ease of operability, and quicker dry time. The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus led the governments of various countries to impose strict cleaning measures during the preliminary stages of the pandemic. In turn, this encouraged various organizations to switch from their traditional cleaning methods to utilizing machines for cleaning purposes. Manufacturers faced multiple challenges during the initial stages of the pandemic due to the disruptions in the supply chain.

However, as floor scrubbing machines fall under the essential goods category, various market players can generate revenue amid the challenging situation. Technological advancements are likely to pave the way for market growth over the next seven years. Market players are focusing on manufacturing technologically advanced products to enhance their product portfolio and meet the end-user requirements. Integrating floor scrubbers with various software platforms for ease of operability is one major on-going trend in the market. For instance, Avidbots Corp. is utilizing software platforms to enhance safety during autonomous cleaning and increase battery life by shutting down the scrubber after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Stringent certification norms for floor scrubbers are expected to adversely affect market growth over the forecast period. Manufacturers need to procure certification related to battery charge and fuel by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). However, rapid industrialization in developing countries, such as Brazil, is expected to open new avenues for the market. The automotive manufacturing sector in Brazil gained momentum in 2017 and the trend is expected to continue over the next seven years.

Growing tourism is another factor driving product demand in the hospitality sector. Organizations in the hospitality industry deal with accommodations, food services, and even entertainment, leading to a high number of daily footfalls. Facilities in this sector have a wide variety of surfaces that require regular scrubbing. Moreover, increasing environmental sustainability issues have forced market players to invest significantly in their research & development activities to manufacture eco-friendly scrubbers that use less water, thereby augmenting the market growth.

Type Insights

The walk-behind scrubbers segment held the largest revenue share of 53.67% in 2019. Walk-behind scrubbers are easy to carry and prove beneficial for commercial places that lack an elevator. These products reduce the total cleaning cost, which is the major reason fueling the segment growth.

The robotic scrubbers segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the growing demand for autonomous cleaning equipment due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Various industrial and commercial facilities are facing a lack of workforce owing to workplace regulations. Moreover, the rising need for regular cleaning has led to a surge in demand for robotic scrubbers.

End-use Industry Insights

The manufacturing segment held the largest revenue share of 34.07% in 2019. This is attributed to the various advantages offered by floor scrubbers over manual cleaning. Scrubbers are more efficient, reduce the cleaning time of manufacturing facilities, and increase employees' productivity as they can manage other tasks. Industrial scrubbers offer better cleaning and are built to last in harsh environments.

Global industrial and commercial floor scrubbers market share

The healthcare segment is estimated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to rising hygiene awareness, coupled with increasing demand for contact-free cleaning. The number of daily visitors in healthcare facilities is high, which brings a challenge to maintain the floor bacteria and dirt free. Moreover, regulatory bodies have set cleaning standards for healthcare organizations to maintain hygiene at their respective facilities.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of 30.58% in 2019. This is attributed to the presence of major market players, such as Tennant Company, Diversey, Inc., and Nilfisk Group. Growing demand in the retail sector is anticipated to propel the market growth from 2020 to 2027. For instance, in October 2018, Walmart announced that it is using autonomous scrubbers named Auto-C in 78 stores in the U.S. The retailer also plans to use these scrubbers in its other stores located in the U.S.

Asia Pacific is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. This is attributed to rapid industrialization in developing countries, such as China and India. China is considered to be the manufacturing hub and India's manufacturing sector is on the rise due to the “Make in India” initiative. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the manufacturing sector in India is expected to reach USD 1 trillion by 2025 with various companies, such as Vivo Mobile Communication Co., Ltd., and Morris Garages, investing significantly in manufacturing their products in India. It is expected that the number of manufacturing facilities will increase, leading to a rise in the demand for floor scrubbers.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Market players are focusing on inorganic growth strategies, such as acquisitions and mergers and collaborations, to augment their market share. For instance, in October 2017, Nilfisk Group entered in a partnership with Blue Ocean Robotics to develop intelligent cleaning robots and machines. The collaboration was done to offer intelligent cleaning products in Danish and global markets. Market players are also focusing on manufacturing technologically advanced products that cater to the end-user requirements effectively. For instance, in April 2018, Tennant Company announced the launch of its autonomous floor scrubber, T7. The autonomous T7 floor scrubber integrates Brain Corporation’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology platform to maximize productivity and optimize safety.
