A recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 1 in 25 hospital patients had at least one HAI and 75,000 hospital patients die from them each year. Other estimates are far higher, making HAIs one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. The prominence of environmental surface disinfection in hospitals and other healthcare facilities has occurred as a significant constituent in the approach for deterrence of HAI’s. The emphasis on cleansing and disinfecting the ecological surfaces has moved from conventional disinfectants and cleaners to complete area disinfection robot.
Disinfection robots have become more popular recently in the fight against hospital-acquired infections. There are two main technologies available for these robots, ultraviolet light and hydrogen peroxide vaporization, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. The market for disinfection robots is expected to grow from $xx million in 2015 to $xx million by 2021. But as adoption grows, hospitals have to decide which among two technologies; hydrogen peroxide vapor and UV light, is better and how to arrange the robots most efficiently, and whether they actually reduce hospital-acquired infections.
Research and development in field has led to the invention of cost effective methods of treatment. The medical field is completely dependent on the technical advancements in this industry. Due to all these reasons the industry is eyeing a surge In the future. Some of the major companies profiled in this report include, Xenex Disinfection Services LLC (the U.S), Lumalier Corp. (the U.S), Bioquell, Inc. (United Kingdom), Blue Ocean Robotics (Denmark), Tru-D SmartUVC which is a spin off from Lumalier Corp., Infuser (Denmark), Infection Prevention Technologies, LLC. (The U.S), a joint venture between Clorox Co. (The U.S) and UltraViolet Devices (The U.S), STERIS plc. (The U.S) and Surfacie, LLC. (The U.S) to name among a few others.
On the other hand cleaning robots are primarily utilized for basing cleaning processes of the residential commercial places. They can however be utilized in other industries for mere cleaning purposes.
One of the basic requirements at household is cleaning which is an iterative process and required on daily basis consuming both time and energy. Cleaning Robot is an approach to make cleaning an easy and time efficient task also to give comfort to the human by doing the domestic works. Autonomous cleaning robots are getting more popular for busy and aging populations, which acts as one of the main drivers for the growth of this market. The most important challenge for the growth of the cleaning robot market is the way these robots perceive the unstructured human environment since they are usually tested in controlled environments. Thus, creating a robot that is proactive and which can foresee the needs of humans, even before it has been given a command to do so is the most significant challenge for the growth of the market.
Some of the major companies dealing with cleaning robots include, Dyson Ltd. (Cotswolds, U.K.), Ecovacs Robotics, Inc. (U.S.), Infinuvo (U.S.), iRobot Corporation (Bedford, U.S.), Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Netherlands), LG Electronics, Inc. (Seoul, South Korea), Neato Robotics, Inc. (Newark, U.S.), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Suwon, South Korea), and Yujin Robot Co., Ltd. (Seoul, South Korea). The above table mentions the number of patents granted in the U.S for autonomous cleaning robots. Samsung Gwangju operates as a subsidiary of Samsung, so Samsung totally got 77 patents and held the first position. Samsung and LG both are companies of South Korea and offer many products, Samsung’s major one named Novibot, LG’s Roboking and IRobot, a US Company, has its product named as Roomba.
Hospitals and clinics are the major end user industry in the sector and have gained the most from the advancements in the system. The medical industry under the Cleaning and Disinfection Robots is eyeing a surge in the future due to factors such as increasing population in need of better medical care and rules set by the government regarding the medical safety.
APAC holds the major share of the market, closely followed by North America. APAC is the largest market in 2015 with revenue of $xx million led by the fast growing Chinese market. This disinfection market segment is projected to grow to $xx million by 2021 at xx% CAGR as increased awareness and lowering costs drive the market. As far as North America is concerned, the U.S. is the major medical service provider in the region which is due to the strict rules and regulations regarding the medical safety of individuals. RoW region is forecast to exhibit slow growth as lack of awareness and low potential market restrict growth to xx% CAGR through 2021.
