Floor Scrubber Growth on the Upswing

May 25, 2021

As the use of automatic floor scrubbers and sweepers has become more common in commercial buildings, the scrubbers and sweepers market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 8% between 2020−2026, according to a new report from market research firm Arizton Advisory & Intelligence. Key drivers fueling this growth include a growing demand for cleaning technologies, a greater inclination toward sustainability, increased investments in research and development, and a rising call for cleanliness in the hospitality industry.

The scrubbers segment dominated with a share of over 57% of the market and is expected to add more than US$1.4 million during the 6-year forecast period. The sweepers market is expected to generate an additional revenue of almost $892 million.

Contract cleaners, such as building service providers (BSCs), account for the majority share of the market at approximately 14% of the global share.

The report also found:

  • Approximately 80%-90% of all engine-powdered cleaning equipment is propane-fueled
  • With innovations in battery technology, the demand for battery-powered scrubbers and sweepers is expected to grow during the forecast period with predictions of $1.1 billion by 2026. The industrial and commercial floor cleaning machine manufacturers adopt lithium-ion batteries due to their higher productivity, longer runtime, reduced maintenance, and lesser charging time.
  • Many commercial walk-behind scrubber machines are eco-friendly and reduce the use of harmful chemicals.
