Commercial Scrubbers and Sweepers Market Segmentation

Scrubbers accounted for the largest segment comprising over 57% of the market share in 2020. Commercial scrubbers are further segmented into walk-behind, stand-on, and ride-on variants by operation type. Walk-behind commercial scrubbers dominate around 52% of the market share in 2020. The commercial walk-behind scrubber machines are eco-friendly and reduce the use of harmful chemicals. Some of the major brands that manufacture commercial walk-behind scrubbers are Nilfisk, Karcher, Comac, Bissell, Hawk, Sanitaire, and Clarke. Companies such as IPC Eagle and Tomcat manufacture green cleaning devices. Green cleaning ensures a reduced impact on human health and the environment.

With innovations in battery technology, the demand for battery-powered scrubbers and sweepers is expected to grow during the forecast period. The industrial and commercial floor cleaning machine manufacturers adopt lithium-ion batteries due to their higher productivity, longer runtime, zero maintenance, and lesser charging time. The advancements in battery technology increase the runtime and reduce the charging time, driving the growth in the adoption and usage of battery-powered equipment.

Contract cleaners form the largest segment for commercial scrubbers and sweepers, with approximately 14% of the market share in 2020. Globally, contract cleaners form the most potential segment for commercial scrubbers and sweepers. The rising trend of hiring professional cleaning services to maintain commercial spaces is expected to drive the market’s growth.

The warehouse and distribution facilities accounted for the fastest-growing segment for commercial scrubbers and sweepers. The rising adoption of autonomous or robotic floor cleaning equipment in the sector primarily drives the market growth.
