With the help of cleaning robots, we can reduce human efforts & saves valuable time, money and electricity. Cleaning robots can be a good choice for Disable people as an option for costly housekeeping services. Various technological developments have made robots smarter and they become capable of identifying the varying degree of dirt at several places.

The global cleaning robot market would be fueled by the increasing number of technological advancements & modernization in the domain of robotics, rising demand, and a smaller size of cleaning robots in comparison to conventional robots. On the other hand, some of the obstacles to the market growth are the absence of durable robotic vacuum cleaners and poor battery life. Though, the market would witness attractive growth opportunities with the creation of small and user-friendly robots.

Cleaning robots can handle customer requirements as they have been designed as an outcome of the robotic development and shift in approach towards household cleaning and maintenance. Public safety organizations like the European Commission (EU) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have formulated the norms for these chemicals against the increasing safety concern for the utilization of harmful chemicals by cleaning personnel. For example, the EU commission ratified the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that restricts the utilization of specific chemicals by cleaning personnel in industrial and commercial applications. These aspects would fuel the demand for robotics vacuums throughout the forecast period.
