WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Cleaning Robot Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018. The 2012 study has 418 pages, 156 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the robots automate cleaning functions in the home making it easier for working people and older people to keep a nice home.

The automated process revolution in business process and communications is being extended to home cleaning robots. Household robot market driving forces are aspects of automated process applied to the home for achieving better use of time, creating more time for people. Using robots to replace manual cleaning is a compelling shift in managing a household. Robots for cleaning are very useful.

Robots automating cleaning systems give a chance to run the vacuum every day and keep the home cleaner while at the same time leaving more time for leisure activities. Innovation is the result of ongoing performance improvement in the areas of product development and customer support. Markets have increasing competition. Products from market leading vendors continue to compete favorably. New products and enhancements provide ease of use. Better batteries let products run for longer periods.

The principal competitive factors in the market for cleaning robots include performance, cost of purchase, length batteries work, and total cost of system operation. The cost of unit maintenance and support is a competitive aspect. Products compete based on ease of use, integration with existing equipment, quality, reliability, customer support, brand, and reputation.

Recent robotics related innovations mean demand for robots is from a broader part of the potential customer base. Use of robots for cleaning is becoming more accepted. Products are becoming more diverse. With the technical improvements in sensors, visualization, and in the fields of robotic hobby, recreation, and warfare, robots are becoming less expensive and more adaptive to the cleaning task.

The rise of futuristic cutting edge industries and the decline of manufacturing industries gives rise to market conditions that support the evolution of more elaborate, smaller, less expensive cleaning robots. The robot industry today is expanding from industrial areas to fields where robots can be used in the same areas with humans.

In the case of personal robots cleaning functions are accompanied by medical, welfare, education, service, and educational functions. The robot industry follows the semiconductor industry. Sales in 2012 are small compared to what will be achieved by 2020. The robot industry market is anticipated to expand to the size of the current automotive market. Cleaning robots will achieve their fair share of this.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, "Home cleaning robot products are designed for intuitive use in the home. Consumer robotic products are focused on floor cleaning tasks. Consumer products provide value by producing better cleaning results at an affordable price and by freeing people from repetitive home cleaning tasks. iRobot, LG, and Samsung are among the leaders in developing innovative features that support intuitive use."

Technology related to robot core functioning depends on precision parts. Sensor technology is the base of research development in the field of household personal robots. World class domestic electronics is being extended with information and communication technology. Internet communications infrastructure is expected to advance the domestic personal robot market.

Manual cleaning is boring and unproductive. Replacing repetitive, boring jobs with a robot is sure to continue to grow in popularity. With increasing adoption, the economies of scale offer increasingly attractive price points. Software is offering more fully functioned units that are more useful because they avoid obstacles and pick up dirt better. Home cleaning robot markets are anticipated to grow in response to the fact that women in the workforce look for every cleaning advantage that can be gained.

Efficiencies offered by automated process have real value. The robot vacuums are being used people in homes to replace manual cleaning. Market growth is rapid with penetration analysis providing the model for analysis, creating the aspect of growth that will at some time trend to adoption of several units by every household.

Household vacuum cleaner, pool, and gutter robot cleaner markets at $676.4 million in 2011 are forecast to reach $1.8 billion by 2018. Market growth comes with the increase in working women and the sharing of household duties between men and women. The robotic cleaners are evolving a role in the shift in home management of cleaning needed with the aging of the population. The need to keep older people in their homes longer, and the value to everyone of automated process replacing manual cleaning process are dual market drivers for home based robotic cleaners.
