DEEBOT 711 comprised of the vision camera, combined with the advanced SLAM graphics algorithm. It comprised of the multiple features. It allows the whole house mapping and clean rooms by using the systematic cleaning pattern to avoid redoing or missing any areas. It can easily work on both hard floors and carpets.
The pool vacuum cleaner segment is expected to have a positive market growth. Pool vacuum cleaners are the ideal choice for removing the rough debris with the brushing system. These robotic vacuum cleaners are widely used for removing the bacteria and algae from pool surfaces, including floors and walls.
Further, the robotic vacuum cleaner market is also classified based on the distribution channel as the offline and online. The offline segment accounts for the highest share of XX% in 2019 due to the increasing number of the electronics and appliance specialty stores selling the robotic vacuum cleaners. Consumers purchase the robotic vacuum cleaners from the offline stores as these stores easily understand the functionality of the robotic vacuum cleaners. The offline stores provide the product as per the requirement of the consumers. Moreover, these stores provide the demo of the working pattern of the products.
Online segment is expected to grow at a highest CAGR over the forecasted period due to the increasing consumers' preference for buying the robotic vacuum cleaners over the online channel. The online channel provides the easy return policy, discounts, and offers to the consumers for purchasing the robotic vacuum cleaners. There are various robotic vacuum cleaners available on the online channel with the different features.
By region, the robotic vacuum cleaner market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions Asia-Pacific dominated the robotic vacuum cleaner market due to higher usage of the robotic vacuum cleaners for the household cleaning without human intervention. The growing availability of the less time for the household chores is increasing the usage of the robotic vacuum cleaners. There is increasing adoption of the technologically advanced robotic vacuum cleaners with the intelligent software programming, a smart navigation system, adjustable suction power, and scheduling mechanism. There is increasing presence of the companies developing the robotic vacuum cleaners. Several companies are shifting their manufacturing facilities to Asian countries due to the presence of the skilled & cheap labor, and strong supply chain. The increasing domestic income and purchasing power of the people shall boost the demand for the robotic vacuum cleaners.
Europe is expected to have the positive market growth over the forecasted period due to the growing development of the robotic vacuum cleaners with the innovative features such as voice interaction, light-weight, cordless vacuum cleaners and other features. There is increasing concerns towards the cleanliness and hygiene along with the busy schedules and reduced time for household chores. There is higher adoption of the automated robotic vacuum cleaners. There is presence of the several market players developing the robotic vacuum cleaners. Several socioeconomic factors such as high number of working populations, and high-income levels in households is influencing the market growth.
The robotic vacuum cleaner market is highly competitive with the presence of several international and local market players. The product diversification, technological advancement, revenue generation, and opportunities intensify the market competition. Irobot Corporation, Samsung, Ecovacs, Panasonic Corporation, Maytronics, Electrolux, and Dyson are the leading market players with significant market share.
Companies are using novel product launches, technological advancement, new product development, capacity utilization, and market expansion strategies for holding their position in the market. For instance, in May 2019, iRobot Corp. launched two new robots i.e., Roomba s9+ robot vacuum with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal and Braava jet m6 robot mop. Roomba s9+ robot vacuum with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal comprised of an advanced 3D sensor, a powerful new cleaning system and PerfectEdge Technology, that encompasses 30 percent wider Dual Rubber Brushes and a specially designed Corner Brush. Corner Brush uses five angled arms to grab dirt and debris from deep in corners and along walls, directing it into the robot's path to be vacuumed up. The Braava jet m6 robot mop tackles multiple rooms and large spaces with advanced navigation and mapping capabilities. These two robots involve the use of imprint link technology to talk to each other, automatically vacuuming and then mopping, without any effort from the user.
