Sales Analysis of Sweeper Robots (2018-2022) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2023-2033)
According to the recent analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, use of sweeper robots witnessed a growth rate of 5.6% over the past half-decade. This was due to the increased usage for racks and shelves lifting in warehouses and manufacturing units.
As sanitation and cleanliness have gained importance post pandemic, the demand for sweeper robots also has risen. The manual cleaning often becomes ineffective due to accumulation of substantial debris and sediments caused by lack of laborers. Automatic sweepers consistently deliver cleaning results and operate for hours continuously with minimal interruption freeing up labors for higher value work. It can be predicted that sweeper robots market may have a market value of US$ 1.3 Bn in 2023.
Autonomous sweepers is a revolutionary development in the field of sweeping machines. The advanced technology enables robotic sweepers to perform wide range of cleaning task autonomously. Robotic sweepers operate intelligently without the need of a driver and evade obstacles along with emptying collecting material independently.
Various governments across the world are focusing on waste removal to provide a healthy, safe and attractive environment to all; public work departments are implementing street sweeping programs. Due to rising labor shortages post pandemic, government and private organizations are shifting to robotic sweepers from manual mechanical sweepers.
Pandemic has spread across the world, causing an unhygienic environment indoors. With growing adoption of AI and IoT in household appliances, automatic sweeper sales are also expected to increase over the forecast period.
The global market is expected to witness prominent growth with an absolute dollar opportunity accounting to 1.7 Bn. Fact.MR estimates that the growth of the global sweeper robots market will be 2.2 times by 2033.
- Short Term (2023 Q1 to 2026): Labor shortage and skilled labor challenges post COVID to improve the sales of sweeper robots.
- Medium Term (2026-2029): Adoption of robotics in industrial sector to drive the sales of sweeper robots.
- Long Term (2029-2033): Growing investment by governments in city sanitation will improve long-term growth in the market.
Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the global sweeper robots market registered a CAGR of 5.6%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is anticipated to exhibit growth at 8.2% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.
Market share analysis of sweeper robots based on cleaning efficiency and region is illustrated briefly in the above image. Under the cleaning efficiency segment, the 1000-3000 m2/h sub-segment will dominate with 32.3% market share in 2023.
What’s Driving Demand for Sweeper Robots?
“Rental Offerings by Manufacturers to Drive the Market Growth”
Increasing market competition makes it harder for small and medium sized businesses to thrive in such an atmosphere. Leading sweeper robot manufacturers have begun to offer leasing services for large sanitation activities in order to gain a competitive advantage over other players. Renting sweeper robots provides perfect opportunity for small businesses to use it to its full potential without the upfront costs of purchasing equipment.
Both businesses and customers benefit from rental programs as they provide a constant supply of asset finance and customer need not make any capital investment and other associated expenditures.
New projects, budget constraints, and other factors, all contribute to organizations opting for rental services. These facilities provide economic help to both manufacturers as well as consumers. Leading robotic cleaning machine manufacturer, Tennat is offering rental options to make the cost more affordable for customers, which will aid the market growth.
“Scarcity of Laborers and Rising Labor Costs to Fuel the Market Growth”
Labor shortages are impacting street sanitation as local governments struggle to find workers. Pandemic has caused a major disruption in labor force of many countries, especially US. Private cleaning companies are turning down business due to shortage of cleaning staffs. These factors have led increasing number of end use industries to invest on sweeper robots while struggling to find cleaning staffs along with rising labor costs.
With the use of sweeper robots in industrial sectors, cleaning can be done effortlessly cutting down the time. The area swept by the sweeper robots have proved to be cleaner than that done with manual methods and thereby increases the overall productivity.
Also, it limits the number of particles spread to air during sweeping process compared to manual cleaning. As a result, more companies are investing on sweeper robots which will propel the demand for sweeper robots in following years.

What Concerns Should Sweeper Robots Manufacturers Watch Out for?
“High Initial Investment and Maintenance Costs May Hinder the Market Growth”
The cost of robotic sweeper are much higher compared to mechanical street sweeper and the manufacturers that develop sweeper robots currently are limited, making it costlier. High capital investment costs restrain businesses from adapting to new technology and prefer to use street sweeper trucks or manual cleaning methods.
Small and medium-sized companies have relatively small budgets and are reluctant to incur high initial costs in robotic solutions, hence hire laborers for performing sanitation works. This will generate pressure on the end use industries to reduce costs, which may act as a restraint on the market. However robotic cleaning machine manufacturers are offering used and pre owned certified equipment which will improve the long-term growth of market.
How is the U.S. Positively Impacting the Sweeper Robots Market?
Sweeper robots have seen significant increase in the U.S. states owing to consumer preference for sanitation with autonomous robots. As the per-capita income and spending on technology is higher in the country, the installation of sweeper robots has witness potential rise over the past half-decade.
The U.S sweeper robots market is expected to reach valuation of US$ 272.8 million in 2023 and grow at the CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period.
How does China Fare in the Sweeper Robots Market?
Deforestation is on the rise and spending on infrastructure development and sanitation by the Chinese government is increasing through number of policies. Companies are primarily focusing on providing highly autonomous robots for sweeping of commercial and residential spaces.
There has been a potential rise in the fleet of sweeper robots in China. Owing to which by 2023 end, China’s market value is predicted to reach US$ 246.4 million having growth rate of 5.8% CAGR over the assessment period.
What is the Most Preferred Working Width for Sweeper Robots in the Market?
Sweeper robots are categorized based on their working width, which is the working area of the robots. Generally, it is the sweeping diameter which the robot covering in the one round of sweep.
As the primary customer of these sweeper robots are the individuals and the commercially preferred by municipal corporations, the working width of 100-200 cm is the dominate segment.
As the standardization follows the width of 130-150 cm, the market share for 100-200 cm is expected to be around 37.4% in 2023, accounting to a market value of US$ 509 Mn.
How are Government & Public Sectors Leading the Installation of Sweeper Robots?
The primary customers for purchasing and deployment of sweeper robots are the government and public sectors. As the government authorities are directly involved in the process of maintaining the sanitation across the cities, they are leading spender for the sweeper robots market.
For instance, Coral Springs, a city in Florida has expanded street cleaning services to enhance the safety and cleanliness of roads. Also provided places to limit the damage from street debris to the environment. An estimated spending of US$ 281 K to install street sweeper was approved leading to increase in the fleet of sweeper robots.
Owing to aforementioned factors, the market for sweeper robots by government and public sector end use is expected to capture nearly 26.2% market share by 2023.
