Market Overview

The vacuum cleaner is a device that uses air pressure to remove dust, dirt, and allergens, such as pollen from surfaces such as the floor, furniture, and upholstery. Advantages include cleaning in less time, removal of micro dust particles and allergens, and convenience. The use of vacuum cleaners in industrial and commercial settings has skyrocketed, accelerating the industry's growth. Moreover, since consumers are becoming more aware of their respiratory health, vacuum cleaners are being widely used for cleaning purposes all over the world.

Growth Drivers

Increased hygiene, health, and safety issues driving market growth

Maintaining hygiene has become critical in the domestic, industrial, and commercial domains. As a result of air pollution and allergens, the prevalence of asthma and other respiratory disorders has skyrocketed across the globe. Additionally, dust mites that live on surfaces of pillows, bedsheets, carpets, and sofa sets can also cause allergic reactions. Since only a vacuum cleaner can eliminate these hazards, the popularity of vacuum cleaners has soared, especially among households with members suffering from asthma and other respiratory disorders. Apart from homes, hospitals also rely heavily on vacuum cleaners to keep hospital beds and ICUs hygienic. These are the primary factors driving the growth of the vacuum cleaner market.

Consumer's inclination towards adopting technologically advanced, eco-friendly, and convenient vacuum cleaners

Changes in the standard of living of the consumers along with the growing awareness of benefits such as convenience and time-efficiency are expected to promote the demand for vacuum cleaners. The industry is also witnessing growth prospects as the demand for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient vacuum cleaners is soaring. Moreover, the market is also experiencing astounding growth owing to the rise in the population of working women who prefer time-saving and convenient gadgets. For example, cordless vacuum cleaners have quieter, more reliable, and streamlined performance and can be used for a variety of cleaning tasks. Thus, the advancement and availability of home cleaning devices that are compatible with virtual assistants such as Alexa and Google Home have been driving the growth of the vacuum cleaner market significantly.

Restraints

Presence of counterfeit products and unavailability of spare parts

The vacuum cleaner market is severely hampered by the availability of imitation goods with the same brand name. Low quality and substandard counterfeit products greatly reduce the brand loyalty of the consumers, thereby impeding the market growth. Moreover, poor post-sale service, coupled with lesser availability of spare parts also hinders the market growth. Once the products suffer some minor or major damage, it becomes very difficult to get them fixed due to the unavailability of spare parts. Last but not least, the final price of the product usually tends to be on the higher end, which prevents consumers from purchasing the product.

 

Impact of COVID-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the lives of millions of people across the globe. Nevertheless, at the same time, it has also raised global awareness about the importance of personal and domestic hygiene. Thus, it is evident that the vacuum cleaner market has been positively impacted due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As soon as the WHO proclaimed the COVID-19 a pandemic, vacuum cleaners have been widely used in public buildings, offices, and service areas. Furthermore, the increased focus on personal hygiene has driven potential demand for cleaning facilities, which would inevitably lead to a rise in vacuum cleaner demand.

The rising demand for a dust-free environment, as well as improved functionalities of central vacuum cleaners across commercial industries, are a few factors leading to the growth of the vacuum cleaner market amid the pandemic.

 

Global Vacuum Cleaner Market: by Product type

Based on product type, the global vacuum cleaner market is divided into Canister Central, Drum, Robotic, Upright, Wet & Dry, and others. The canister type holds the largest market share since it is highly flexible and can clean corners effectively. Its ease of use and ability to reach confined corners has earned it a huge following in domestic settings. Besides the canister type, the upright type model is also highly preferred because of their convenient features such as compact size, lightweight, and portability.

The fastest-growing product type, however, is the robotic type which is equipped with enhanced technologies like remote control, voice control, and navigation. Additionally, remote-controlled vacuum cleaners can be controlled from anywhere using smartphone apps, thereby making it apt for working women or consumers with hectic schedules.

Global Vacuum Cleaner Market: by Distribution Channel

Based on the distribution channel, the global vacuum cleaner market can be divided into online and offline. Until recently, the offline distribution segment dominated the industry, enabling consumers to test and inspect different vacuum cleaners before purchasing them. However, the online segment is catching up as the fastest-growing distribution channel due to the proliferation of e-commerce websites amid the ongoing pandemic. Manufacturers are now adopting innovative practices such as ‘concept testing’ on online platforms which aids in the acquisition of a potential consumer base based on feedback analysis.

Global Vacuum Cleaner Market: by Application

Based on application, the vacuum cleaner market is segmented into industrial, commercial, and residential. The residential segment dominates the global vacuum cleaner market. The growing number of allergic reactions and asthma cases caused by pollen, dust mites, and allergens is expected to fuel demand for residential vacuum cleaners, making this segment the largest.

Nevertheless, vacuum cleaners in the industrial segment have grown exponentially since the COVID-19 epidemic, making the industrial segment the fastest-growing. Industrial hygiene is a professional practice in large manufacturing units; thus, strict adherence to GMP guidelines by the manufacturers has led to the adoption of specially-built industrial vacuum cleaners in almost all major industrial units around the world. The two key factors expected to fuel demand for vacuum cleaners during the forecast period are innovations in the industrial segment and the high demand for safety standards in industries during the pandemic.

Global Vacuum Cleaner Market: by End-user

Based on the end-user, the global vacuum cleaner market is divided into industrial and commercial. The commercial segment is further categorized into hospitals, retail stores, hospitality segment, shopping malls, and others. The growing trend of keeping areas hygienic and dirt-free has proven to be a major factor driving the demand for vacuum cleaners in the hospitality segment, thus, making the commercial segment the largest market. Additionally, the demand for noise-free vacuum cleaners in hospitals is also expected to fuel the growth of the commercial segment.

The fastest-growing segment, however, is the industrial segment, which can be further categorized into manufacturing, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, construction, and others. Owing to manufacturers' increased emphasis on keeping their manufacturing unit neat, dirt-free, and hygienic, especially after the onset of the pandemic, the industrial segment is catching up as the fastest-growing segment. Moreover, the food &beverage, and pharmaceutical industries are now taking GMP guidelines more seriously in order to manufacture their goods under hygienic conditions, creating a substantial demand for industrial vacuum cleaners.

Global vacuum cleaner market by Region

Based on region, the global vacuum cleaner market is grouped into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific holds the largest market share in the global market due to its large population, especially in countries like India and China. The region also has the advantage of technological advancements. In India, for example, upper-middle-class and upper-class working consumers use vacuum cleaners to ensure proper hygiene and save time in cleaning.

North America is the second leading market mainly due to consumer preference for convenience. The household appliance sector is enormous in the United States, accounting for a major share in the consumer appliance market. Additionally, the growing interest of manufacturers in producing smart and innovative vacuuming devices, combined with the rising customer demand for such products, is anticipated to propel the market growth.
