The cleaning robots market is expected to register a CAGR of 23.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Technological innovation and modernization, coupled with the changing lifestyle of people, are the major factors propelling the growth of robotics for various purposes. Increased adoption of smart home devices is augmenting the growth of cleaning robotics for domestic as well as industrial uses.
  • Also, increasing labor costs and safety concerns have boosted the market growth. The various applications of cleaning robots range from floor cleaning, window cleaning to pool cleaning. The use of cleaning robots minimizes human efforts and saves time, costs, and electricity.
  • However, the costs involved in deploying cleaning robots are a major factor restraining the market growth for a majority of the population. Cleaning robots are expected to replace the traditional vacuum cleaner as they replace human efforts with automation and save electricity. However, the costs involved compared to a vacuum cleaner are expected to hinder the adoption of cleaning robots.
  • Also, people in emerging economies such as India and China still rely on labor or traditional vacuum cleaners for cleaning purposes.
  • Due to the pandemic, autonomous cleaning and disinfection robots saw wide usage in hospitals. They can kill germs with UV light. AMRs with robotic arms are used to carry out simple diagnostics, such as taking a patient’s temperature, thereby reducing contact, while the medical staff determines whether a patient has a highly infectious disease.

Key Market Trends


Use of Pool Cleaning Robot in Commercial and Domestic Sectors Expected to Grow Significantly

  • The pool cleaning robot segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period owing to the need for automation in pool cleaning in the domestic and commercial sectors. The changing urban lifestyle of people is a major factor driving the market’s growth. People have more disposable income, and pools in homes are becoming essential to maintaining luxury. However, maintaining and cleaning a pool is a tedious task, and hence, people are looking for an automated solution to overcome the challenges.
  • Pool cleaning robots have automated features and can remove dirt and debris from pools and scrub the surface. Manual cleaning of pools requires a lot of effort and is time-consuming. However, the introduction of pool cleaning robots has simplified the process of cleaning.
  • Pool cleaning robots are an advanced, efficient, and cost-effective version of traditional pool cleaning equipment. They collect debris and sediments from swimming pools with minimal human intervention. Hence, the benefits offered by these robots are expected to boost the growth of the cleaning robot market.
  • The adoption of pool cleaning robots is expected to increase for both domestic and commercial applications. The growth of the luxurious hotel industry and the increase in the number of swimming pools for training purposes are expected to increase the market adoption of pool cleaning robots.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Exhibit Maximum Adoption

  • The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the maximum adoption of cleaning robots in the forecast period. The major factors boosting the market growth in the region are the gradual rise in the disposable income of consumers and the rapid change in their lifestyles.
  • Also, the major players are expanding their presence in the emerging countries to grab maximum market share. For instance, Brain Corp. partnered with Softbank Robotics, a Japanese company, in September 2019, to expand its products to the Asia-Pacific region, with the launch of Whiz, the new AI-enabled vacuum-cleaning robot, for commercial customers on a trial and subscription model in Singapore, thus, bringing the smart appliance to the country.
  • Companies in the region are launching new and technologically-enhanced cleaning robots to expand their market share and reach. As the region is still at a developing stage in terms of the adoption of cleaning robots, it is expected to present various opportunities to vendors for expansion.
  • In response to increased global demand, Chinese robotic vacuum cleaner manufacturers are attempting to establish their presence in other markets. For example, in the first six months of 2021, Beijing Roborock Technology Co. Ltd's export income increased by 124% Y-o-Y to CNY 1.26 billion (USD 194.1 million). About half of the company's total revenue comes from this source.

Competitive Landscape


The competitive landscape of the cleaning robot market is moderately consolidated due to the presence of a few vendors in the market, coupled with new players entering the market with new products and solutions and capturing the market share. Although the cleaning robot is still developing, several existing companies and start-ups have begun conducting experiments and partnering with various electronic component manufacturers to provide efficient cleaning equipment integrated with all the major technologies.
  • In March 2021, Xiaomi introduced the “Robot” Vacuum Cleaner in Indonesia. The device comes with a smart control that connects to the MI Home app. Users might control the product directly from their smartphones using the app.
