Market Size & Trends

The global industrial and commercial floor scrubbers market size was valued at USD 3.61 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5% from 2023 to 2030.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.

As floor scrubbing machines fall under the essential goods category, various market players were able to 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 end-user requirements. Integrating floor scrubbers with various software platforms for ease of operability is one major ongoing 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 affect market growth over the forecast period adversely. 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 progressing over the upcoming years.

Growing tourism is another factor driving product demand in the hospitality sector. Everyday hospitality organizations 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 accounted for the largest revenue share of 53.8% in 2022. 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's growth.

The robotics scrubber segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 11.0% 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 need more workforce owing to workplace regulations. Moreover, the rising need for regular cleaning has led to a surge in demand for robotic scrubbers.

End-use Insights

The manufacturing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.1% in 2022. This is attributed to the various advantages offered by floor scrubbers over manual cleaning. Scrubbers are more efficient, they 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 and size, 2022

The healthcare segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 10.9% over 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 get rid of the floor bacteria and keep it dirt-free. Moreover, regulatory bodies have set cleaning standards for healthcare organizations to maintain hygiene in their respective facilities.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the industrial and commercial floor scrubbers market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 30.0% in 2022. It is attributed to the growing demand in the retail sector and is anticipated to propel the market growth from 2023 to 2030. Also, the presence of major market players, such as Tennant Company, Diversey, Inc., and Nilfisk Group, is fueling the regional market growth.

 Industrial And Commercial Floor Scrubbers Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period. It 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.
