Therefore, owing to such factors, demand for industrial vacuum cleaners is anticipated to rise during the forecast period.
Maintaining hygiene in manufacturing facilities plays an important role in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees and for manufacturing products, especially in the pharmaceuticals and food & beverages industries. An unhygienic manufacturing facility may develop fungus, mold, slippery surfaces, and accumulated dust. Such places become the breeding ground for pathogens and bacteria that can make employees sick and contaminate manufactured products. Moreover, slippery surfaces and dusty environment presents significant health hazards such as broken bones, lung diseases, and other physical injuries to the workers. Furthermore, a safe and clean workplace helps in complying with government guidelines regarding workplace cleanliness, which improves the reputation of companies in society, and it also helps in increasing employee retention. Workplace cleanliness can be ensured through regular cleaning of premises by using an industrial vacuum cleaner as this equipment are highly efficient and quick at their job. Thus, to improve hygienic conditions, manufacturing facilities continuously demand industrial vacuum cleaner.
The food & beverages sector is witnessing a considerable rise, owing to a rise in disposable income of people and rise in online food retail. In addition, food processors predominantly use a wide range of industrial vacuum cleaners to clean the premises. Thus, a rise in the food & beverages sector is anticipated to be one of the industrial vacuum cleaner market opportunities for growth. Moreover, the pharmaceuticals sector is witnessing rise across the globe, owing to rise in population and onset of new viruses and diseases. Industrial vacuum cleaners are used widely in cleaning the pharmaceutical industry premises, which is anticipated to drive demand for industrial vacuum cleaners market. Furthermore, the electronics manufacturing sector is also witnessing a rise, owing to rise in technological advancements and disposable income of people around the world. In addition, the number of waste recycling facilities has increased in the last decade, owing to various efforts being made to reach sustainability. Furthermore, developments in industrial vacuum cleaners that have enabled them to operate autonomously is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the industrial vacuum cleaners market growth.
However, fluctuating cost of raw materials used for making industrial vacuum cleaners is expected to restrain the market growth. Fluctuations in the prices of raw materials can affect the sales of the industrial vacuum cleaners. Even if the manufacturer does not increase the price, it is expected to affect the profitability of the company involved in making industrial vacuum cleaner and their components.
Moreover, rise in small scale industries in emerging economies is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the growth of key players in the market. For instance, the government of India introduced various schemes, such as ‘Credit Guarantee Fund Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises (CGTMSE)’, ‘Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojna,’ and others to support small-scale industries. Such programs have been successful in driving growth of the small-scale industrial sector in the last decade and is expected to grow further in the coming years.
The industrial vacuum cleaner market is witnessing various obstructions in its regular operations due to COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. Earlier, the worldwide lockdowns resulted in reduced industrial activities, eventually leading to reduced demand for industrial vacuum cleaners from various industrial sectors. However, the COVID-19 has subsided, and the major manufacturers in 2023 are performing well. Contrarily, the rising global inflation, is a new major obstructing factor for the entire industry. The inflation, which is a direct result of the Ukraine-Russia war, and few long-term impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, has introduced volatility in the prices of raw materials used for manufacturing industrial vacuum cleaners. In addition to this, the cost of oil & gas has also increased substantially, and many countries; especially, the countries in Europe, Latin America, and developing economies in Asia-Pacific are experiencing severe negative impacts on industrial production, including the production of industrial vacuum cleaner. However, India and China are performing relatively well. In addition, inflation is expected to worsen in the coming years, as the possibility of the ending of the war between Ukraine and Russia is less, it is also expected to negatively affect the industrial vacuum cleaner market growth. However, with the continued talks between different countries, a peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia can be devised.
The industrial vacuum cleaner market is segmented on the basis of product type, mode of operation, end-user industry and region. By product type, the market is categorized into upright, canisters, backpacks, and others. On the basis of mode of operation, it is bifurcated into electric and pneumatic. On the basis of end-user industry, it is categorized into food & beverages, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and others. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, UK, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East, and Africa).
By product type: The industrial vacuum cleaner market is bifurcated upright, canisters and backpacks. In 2022, the canisters industrial vacuum cleaner segment dominated the industrial vacuum cleaner market share, in terms of revenue, and the upright industrial vacuum cleaner segment is expected to grow with a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Canister vacuums generally have more suction power than upright models. This power makes them particularly well suited for cleaning bare floors. Canister vacuums tend to be slightly lighter than upright models. On the other hand, Upright vacuum cleaners are preferred due to their versatile usage and its adjustable features and an innovative motor. They can be used as vacuum cleaners for hardwood floors and also carpets.
By mode of operation: The industrial vacuum cleaner market is divided into electric and pneumatic. In 2022, the electric segment dominated the industrial vacuum cleaner market, in terms of revenue, and the pneumatic segment is expected to witness growth at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Electric vacuum cleaners have a higher capacity for collecting dust as compared to pneumatic ones. In addition, the canister doesn’t need to be emptied frequently. This is the reason why electric vacuum cleaners are an ideal appliance for people who suffer from allergies. On the other hand, pneumatic vacuum systems have several advantages when compared to conventional vacuum systems. Since they are powered by compressed air, pneumatic vacuums do not have any moving parts. Pneumatic vacuum systems are a great option for hazardous materials, including combustible materials.
By end user industry: The industrial vacuum cleaner market is divided into food & beverages, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and others. The food and beverages segment accounted for a higher market share in 2022.
