Technavio analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global professional cleaning robots market:

  • Alternately powered robots
  • Reducing risk to human life
  • Non-availability of labor

Alternately powered robots

The power backup and batteries used in these robots are crucial, as these robots work in areas where the humans cannot reach, such as pipes and tubes. Therefore, it is important for the cleaning robots to have an alternate power supply and self-charging capability, which enable them to work without a pause. Therefore, these robots are installed with the battery swapping facilities, where they exchange their discharged battery with a fully charged battery from the charging station. Battery swapping operation takes about 85 seconds, which helps in providing constant power supply to the professional cleaning robots.

Reducing risk to human life

The industrial cleaning operation is a dangerous process due to the risks associated. The equipment like pipes and huge filters, which operate at high temperature and are sometimes exposed to the harmful chemicals which may prove to be deadly to the labor. To avoid such incidences, the industries are implementing smart methods.

The use of the robots for critical operations like cleanliness has helped industries address the issues related to the health of the labor. Therefore, the implementation of the robots has proved useful in terms of taking precautions to save the labor from any danger.

Non-availability of labor

Regions like the Americas and EMEA have seen a decline in the availability of skilled labor due to graying of the population. This is making it difficult for the industries to operate the plant at full capacity. Moreover, the cleaning application is a critical process, wherein workers may come in contact with many dangerous and tough to handle equipment like tanks and boilers. Also, the traditional industrial cleaning equipment that is operated manually engages workers in cleaning activity for a longer duration. This operation does not account for the revenue growth of the industry, due to which the industries try to avoid engaging labor for such activities. Therefore, the integration of robots into cleaning operations has helped industries save the time and energy of the labor, which can be utilized in other useful operations.

“The professional cleaning robots have helped industries achieve optimum utilization of labor and machines, due to the measures were taken by industries of not engaging labor in such activities. Also, the use of robots is more efficient and helps to implement and promote safe industrial cleaning methods. This has also helped in increasing the market growth of professional cleaning robots, says Sushmit.
