Moreover, companies are focusing on elevating the cleaning experience through digital capabilities with personalized recommendations and smartphone app-based cleaning solutions.

An exponential rise in demand for vacuum cleaners was observed in both the residential and commercial sectors in 2020, chiefly owing to the heightened need to maintain hygiene in hospitals and homes amid a surge in COVID-19 cases. Several companies have reported an increase in revenues in these sectors, whereas the demand for vacuum cleaners in the industrial sector witnessed a decline owing to the closure of industrial units globally. The increased influence of social media and online sales platforms has emerged as one of the most important growth drivers of the market. Social media platforms have been instrumental in increasing awareness about the need to maintain hygiene along with rolling out information about technologically advanced products and new launches. For instance, in February 2022, Dyson, a Singapore-based technology company, launched Dyson V12 Detect slim vacuum with cord-free laser detection technology.

The device has a suction working pressure of 0.3 bar with a 1.2 m3 hopper capacity, and the dust collected and separated with a very fine filtration is then ready for re-use. It ensures that it delivers a healthier, environmentally friendly, and cleaner surrounding. Furthermore, to capitalize on the sales opportunity during the pandemic, several key players have introduced products such as steam cleaners that would be used to disinfect surroundings. The introduction of these products helped companies to increase their revenues.

Product Insights

The canister vacuum cleaner segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a revenue share of over 25.0% in 2021.  The development of canister vacuum cleaners equipped with a HEPA filter, which have a significantly low risk of causing pulmonary side effects such as allergies and asthma, is expected to work in favor of the segment’s future growth prospects. For instance, in February 2022, PUPPYOO, a developer and manufacturer of vacuum cleaners, launched its T12 Plus Rinse vacuum cleaner, which has the advanced feature of a 6-stage HEPA filter to prevent air pollution. This technology on the motor's rear and front sides avoids dust by trapping it as small as o.3 microns with an attached 0.42 L magnetic bin that is easy to empty. The additional features of the vacuum cleaner include a spin mopping brush, a smart LED display, and auto-adjusting suction up to 185 air watts.

The robotic segment is expected to witness an increase in demand over the next few years. New cleaning requirements and demands have emerged in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to free up the human workforce so that they can attain other duties, especially in hospitals. Such demands have necessitated that the commercial sector adopts autonomous or robotic vacuum cleaners. Features such as automatic charging, smart home trend, and voice-activated commands powered by digital voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are attracting residential clients and end-users. Moreover, advanced features such as navigation technology, voice control, and remote control, allow these devices to help users save time and reduce human assistance. For instance, in February 2022, Midea., a prominent provider of home appliances, launched an innovative auto-dust robot vacuum cleaner, “Midea S8+,” which offers an automatic dust collection station. The device has an inbuilt LDS navigation system and a multi-map function, which allows the device to scan the whole house to clean the spaces without repeating any area. The additional feature of the vacuum cleaner includes upgraded sensors for smart detection, different cleaning modes, Wi-Fi connectivity, and voice support. It can also be connected to Google Assistant or Alexa and MSmartLife app.

Distribution Channel Insights

The online distribution channel segment captured a revenue share of over 56.0% in 2021. The growth can be attributed to the implementation of lockdown of varying stringency worldwide to curb the spread of COVID-19. Since cleaning became an essential part of the daily routine across all application sectors, companies moved to sell their products virtually. The virtual product demonstration and selling process contributed profoundly to the segment’s growth in 2020 and is expected to remain a key contributor in 2021 as well. The need to globalize the digital sales process and create a seamless customer experience is likely to further contribute to the segment’s future growth prospects. For instance, in February 2022, Fantasia Trading LLC (eufy), which develops smart-home devices, added its eufy cordless handheld vacuum cleaner for sale on Amazon to provide an improved and seamless customer experience. With the product being digitally sold, it has been easy for customers to compare the performance and buy it.

Amazon customers have described the eufy vacuum cleaner as the best for everyday use. Though the revenue for offline distribution channels declined in 2020, several companies opened new distribution centers to broaden their regional presence and standardize supply chain activities. For instance, in February 2021, Dyson, a Singapore-based technology company expanded its regional presence. It launched a demo retail store in Mumbai, India, to let people experience, test, and buy the product. Further, the pandemic-induced-stay at home trend-led the company to increase sales by planning to open more stores in Chennai and Bengaluru.

Application Insights

The residential segment dominated the vacuum cleaner market and accounted for a revenue share of over 46% in 2021. The implementation of the WFH model across regions has confined people to their homes, necessitating the timely management of daily routine tasks. This has increased the demand for home appliances, especially cleaning equipment. Increasing incidences of allergy and asthma caused due to dust and dirt in residential settings, coupled with the need to keep homes disease-free, are expected to drive the demand for residential vacuum cleaners. Furthermore, the rising availability of advanced products, which can capture the tiniest of impurities efficiently, is driving the market growth in residential applications. For instance, in March 2022, ECOVACS, a Chinese robotics company, launched its new “DEEBOT X1 OMNI,” a robotic vacuum cleaner with a natural language processing technology that takes direct command and speech without any smart device. It has an auto-cleaning station that auto washes, empty the dirt, dries the mop, and refills with clean water.

Global vacuum cleaner market share, by application, 2021 (%)

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the industrial and commercial business sector due to the long-term closure of manufacturing plants, shopping malls, restaurants, and other commercial spaces. As a result, the revenue for the industrial and commercial sectors declined in 2020. However, in the commercial sector, the hospital segment witnessed promising growth, chiefly owing to the labor shortage in hospitals and the need to maintain hygiene. Moreover, the rising need to keep hospitals clean to avoid cross-contamination and infections and maintain a healthy environment for the medical staff, patients, and visitors is anticipated to drive the demand for vacuum cleaners.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 31.7% in 2021, with China being one of the prominent markets. The strong presence of regional companies, availability of low-cost products, and high purchasing power of consumers are some of the key factors driving the demand for vacuum cleaners in the region. The increasing electrification of rural areas and the wide usability of online sales channels in developing countries such as India are aiding the demand for vacuum cleaners. For instance, in April 2022, Panasonic Holdings Corporation, which provides consumer electronics products launched “MC-YL633,” a dry vacuum cleaner for convenient cleaning solutions. The vacuum cleaner has an 18L dust tank capacity with a high suction power of 2000W motor and would be sold across the country at an affordable price as per the requirement of Indian consumers.

The sales of vacuum cleaners are expected to elevate globally in the near future, especially in Europe, due to the ease of lockdowns and opening of academic institutions in major parts of the region. The need for maintaining high hygiene standards to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19 is expected to compel several institutions, including schools and businesses, to invest in vacuum cleaners. For instance, in December 2021, Brain Corporation., a provider of robotic AI software, partnered with Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG (Karcher), a cleaning technology company, to launch “KIRA CV 60/1” an autonomous commercial vacuum cleaner. The vacuum cleaner is built with advanced features for easy cleaning and navigating; it includes cloud-connected AI software, advanced sensors and cameras, and HEPA-rated vacuum bags. “KIRA CV 60/1 is designed to vacuum in large buildings such as offices, schools, convention centers, and airports.

Several companies faced negative growth in Europe in the first and second quarters of 2020 due to heavy restrictions imposed in the larger consumer markets of Italy and France. Nevertheless, the revenue growth in the Asia Pacific market improved in the second half of 2020 as governments relaxed restrictions in several countries.
