The industrial floor scrubber is a floor cleaning device which can used for the industrial purpose. It is a simple tool which is in the form of a walk-behind or a ride-on machine to clean larger space by inserting the water with cleaning solution, scrubbing, and lifting the residue off the floor. Nowadays robotics, autonomous floor-scrubbing robots are available in the market. These are the multi-purpose cleaning machines for the use of hard flooring such as wood, stone, marble and tiles. It is a versatile and invaluable tool in floor cleaning available in a variety of sizes and configurations. The machines use the principle of high-speed rotation to penetrate deep into dirt. Global industrial floor scrubber market was valued at USD 2.95 billion in 2020.
The spread of COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the hygiene and an awareness of measures in the consumers from 2020. And this effect is going to be there in the future, which will positively impact the Global Industrial Floor Scrubber Market in the forecast period. According to the guidelines published by World Health organization (WHO), Coronavirus can remain on hard surfaces for couple of days or more, and it can be kicked up as people walk or move. Thus, the companies are taking the prevention and cleaning is done in some interval time. Complete manual cleaning is not possible because it can take more time and more labours will be requiring to maintain this task. These factors accentuated the need of floor scrubber in various end use industries such as healthcare, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, transportation & logistics and other industries.
Increasing demand for high performance solution in industrial sector and strict labour law is likely to boost the product demand. Industrial players are rapidly investing in sourcing local raw materials to reduce their manufacturing costs, thereby reducing the price of the product. In U.S., light weight vehicles sales surpassed 17 million units in 2018 which shows high application potential of high-quality floor scrubber in automotive manufacturing sector.
The stringent health and safety regulation is another factor that propels the growth of industrial floor scrubber market in the forecast period. In the hospitality industry, they need to deal with accommodations and food services, leading to many daily footfalls. Various floors are there in this sector which needs to be clean regularly. Additionally, rising environmental sustainability issues created an impact on the market players. They are now focusing on more on the research & development activities to manufacture such a product that will be eco-friendly and fulfill the customer needs.
In 2019, the walk-behind scrubber’s segment held the largest revenue share due to its ease of use. Further, it reduces the overall labour cost which will fuels the market growth. Robotic scrubbers’ segment shows a surge in the market due to the growing demand for automated cleaning equipment. Due to the workplace regulations, industries are facing lack of workforce thus this segment is spurring the demand of robotic scrubbers.

In 2019, the North America was the most dominating region for the industrial floor scrubber market. The manufacturing sector in the United States is huge. U.S. is the third largest manufacturer globally with a revenue of USD 2 trillion in Q1 2018. The U.S. manufacturing industry has more than 12.56 million people in December 2017, an increase of 207,000, around 1.7%. So, there is a need to keep the heath safety in such sector. Further, due to the presence of major market players such as Nilfisk Group, Diversey, Inc. and Tennant. In October 2018, Walmart announced that it is adopting autonomous scrubbers named Auto-C in 78 stores in the U.S. Such factor will fuel the market growth in North America.
Asia Pacific region is the fastest going during the forecast period. This is in turn due to the rapid industrialization in developing countries. China is the manufacturing hub and India’s manufacturing sector is boosting at the high rate due to the various initiates taken by the government such as ‘Make in India’ initiative. The healthcare sector is growling rapidly in the Asia pacific region due to the increasing demand for the technology, innovative healthcare programmes and policies. The Asia-Pacific healthcare market was valued at USD 487 billion in 2019. Thus, such factors will create an opportunity for the other sectors which are necessary in the healthcare industry. The adoption of green technologies is a trend in South America which is growing consumer demand for greener products. Hence, spurring the growth of the industrial floor scrubber market in the near future.
