U.S. robotic vacuum cleaner market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

A rise in the adoption of vacuum cleaners has been observed due to COVID-19. The usage and adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners in various premises to disinfect the premises, and to reduce the exposure of humans to this contagious virus. The surge of COVID-19 imposed various restrictions and guidelines. Consequently, it increased the demand for cleaning workers and also gave rise to the increased usage of robotic vacuum cleaners. This technology proved ideal for disinfection and thorough cleaning.

Robotic vacuum cleaners ensure the efficient cleaning of any work or living space in a hassle-free and automated way. The spread of COVID-19 changed the preference of consumers and created new opportunities for the market. Initially, the production of robotic vacuum cleaners decreased; however, overall healthy growth has been observed in the robotic vacuum cleaner market.

Due to the ability of robotic vacuum cleaners to work without any human intervention, the consumers are more inclined to buy them. Some of the robots can charge themselves automatically by maneuvering toward the charging point and restarting operations from the point of discharge. Virtual boundaries can also be set for these robots which enable entry restrictions in undesirable areas such as the children's playroom. Thus, the aforementioned factors continue to increase the adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners, thus, propelling the market growth.

An autonomous vacuum cleaner consists of a limited vacuum cleaning system. This is known as a robotic vacuum cleaner, sometimes also known as Robovac. These vacuum cleaners are integrated with robotic drives and sensors along with programmable cleaning routines and controllers which help control the robot accordingly. The increasing inclination of consumers toward smart homes and smart home technology promises to propel market growth over the forecast period.Moreover, the increased concerns regarding hygiene and cleanliness are further anticipated to drive the adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners in the coming years.

Integration of advanced technologies such as voice assistance, and artificial intelligence continues to boost its demand among the targeted consumers. Furthermore, the growing preference of consumers toward more innovative and advanced technology integrated into robotic vacuum cleaners is expected to present key opportunities for the market. However, the short battery life along with the high charge time required for robotic vacuum cleaners make it difficult to complete the process of cleaning. In addition, robotic vacuum cleaner consumes more time for cleaning than traditional which are some factors expected to restrain the market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the maintenance of robotic vacuum cleaners can be a relatively costly affair.  As it consists of sensors, which is another factor anticipated to hinder market growth. The high cost of the products acts as a major challenge for the market. It restricts the adoption of the product for a mass user base. Moreover, the availability of various counterfeit products in the market acts as a major restraint for the robotic vacuum cleaner market.

Type Insights

In terms of revenue, the floor vacuum cleaner type dominated the market with a share of 60.7% in 2021 and is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period with a CAGR of 23.7% from 2022 to 2030. Consumers in the market are more inclined towards the purchase of floor vacuum cleaners owing to their ability to be used on various surfaces, such as wooden floors, marble, vinyl, and tiles flooring.

Most of the daily routine of household cleaning focuses on cleaning floors, and hence the demand for floor vacuum cleaners is on the rise.The dominance and high growth of the segment can also be attributed to its efficiency to remove even the smallest of particles that may cause health issues along with its cost-efficiency.

The pool vacuum cleaner category is expected to expand at a considerable CAGR of 23.1% from 2022 to 2030. Consumers in the market are more inclined toward the purchase of pool vacuum cleaners as their brushing system helps remove debris. It also helps in removing algae and bacteria from both walls and floors. Moreover, these automatic robotic pool cleaners map the surface of the pool using advanced computer technology.

Furthermore, these clean the pool in a quick and comparatively efficient manner. In addition, robotic pool vacuum cleaners are being used widely as they come with an independent filtration system that can be emptied once full and does not require connection to the filtration system of the pool.

Application Insights

Based on revenue, the residential segment dominated the market. It held a share of 46.7% in 2021. The residential segment is further expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 23.9% over the forecast period from 2022 to 2030. The dominance of the segment is attributed to growth in the number of smart homes and the increasing trend of smart homes across the globe.

The growth of the segment can also be attributed to the increasing adoption of automated products for daily use to minimize human intervention. Robotic vacuum cleaners are also being widely adopted due to various factors including small sizes, low- maintenance, and easily accessible spaces under cabinets, beds, tables, and others. Thus due to some of the above-mentioned factors, the segment is expected to generate more revenue.

The commercial segment is expected to grow at a substantial CAGR of 23.3% over the forecast period from 2022 to 2030. The growth of the segment is attributed to its growth in the sector due to its efficiency and speed coupled with its increased accuracy due to the integration of continuously advancing technology.

Moreover, the demand and requirement for cleaning commercial places without the involvement of the human workforce has emerged due to COVID-19 which also boosted the adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners. Majorly, the demand and adoption were observed in the hospital segment to maintain cleanliness and hygiene and control the spread of COVID-19 thus contributing to the segment growth.

Distribution Channel Insights

On the basis of distribution, the online channel segment held the largest share of 56.5% in 2021 and is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 23.7% from 2022 to 2030. An increase in social media marketing supports the growth of online distribution channels. Online channels provide features such as easy return, price comparison, and availability of diverse product range which results in a shift of consumer preference towards online channels. The preference of consumers with bounded time is towards multi-brand online retailers as they aid them to select robotic vacuum cleaners from various providers. Rising direct-to-consumer offerings also act as a catalyst for the growth of the online segment.
