Robotic Pool Cleaner Market size is projected to grow exponentially from 2021 to 2027, owing to the rising participation of the high-income population in recreational activities such as swimming. Myriad benefits of robotic pool cleaner machines, such as ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and high scrubbing power, will further augment the market growth in the coming years. Apart from scrubbing and filtering fine suspended particles, the product is also capable of effectively circulating the pool water.
A robotic pool cleaner refers to a compact machine equipped with its own filter media and power supply to clean contaminants such as algae, dirt, and small debris in pools. This automated cleaner is ideal for cleaning inground pools, while several other models are also capable of cleaning the floor of above-ground pools.
Mounting development of residential high-rise buildings with swimming pools is among the key trends stimulating the robotic pool cleaner market dynamics. For example, in July 2021, Gensler released designs for a Central Park House, a 41-story building in Canada with a swimming pool, housed in an off-centre atrium and surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glazing. Furthermore, the escalating deployment of pool-cleaning robots in public swimming pools across various countries like South Korea and China will contribute to the rising market popularity in the upcoming years.
Based on type, the suction-side pool cleaners segment is anticipated to amass considerable gains by 2027. This is driven by its major usage benefits, such as non-requirement of a separate booster pump or timer, as well as a separate designated line. The suction can also generate enough power for the automated pool cleaners to travel in a random pattern along the pool walls and floors, thus adding significant impetus to the segment growth over the forecast timeline.
On the regional front, the North America robotic pool cleaner market will exhibit a strong growth rate through 2027, which is attributable to the rising construction of swimming pools in the region. Over the past months, homeowners in Austin, Texas have been outfitting the backyards with swimming pools to relax during the pandemic. Additionally, the increasing disease outbreaks caused by germs like Pseudomonas and E. coli, which are linked with pools, water playgrounds, and hot tubs, in the U.S. will further boost product demand in the coming years.
The competitive landscape of the robotic pool cleaner market consists of companies such as Xiamen Fast Cleaner, KOKIDO, Milagrow HumanTech, Pentair Plc, Aqua Products, Zodiac Pool Solutions, Waterco, Maytronics Ltd., iRobot Corporation, and Hayward Industries Inc., among others. These companies are undertaking varied initiatives such as innovative product launches and mergers and acquisitions to expand their stance and business operations across the global market.
For example, in March 2021, Milagrow Robots announced its expansion into the Middle East, by opening a new office in DAFZA Dubai. The company also inked a distribution agreement with Blue Ocean Global to distribute and promote pool, window, floor, and lawn robots in the Middle East.
Declining Building and Construction Activities Amid COVID-19 to Impact Robotic Pool Cleaner Market Trends:
The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus disease has resulted in the halt of various business operations, including commercial construction activities across the globe. In March 2020, Mayor Marty Walsh announced the halt of most constructions in Boston, which is the 1st major city in the U.S. to issue to stop-work order. This significant decline in construction activities amid the escalating number of COVID-infected individuals worldwide has created roadblocks to the steady growth of the industry.
Despite the escalating impacts of the pandemic on almost all economic sectors, the pool industry has been witnessing rapid expansion over the past months. Due to travel restrictions, multiple homeowners are looking for ways to create mini staycations at their homes, thereby leading to the increased demand for pool services. This growing interest in pool construction, and the subsequent rise in need for cleaning solutions, will serve as major factors in the development of robotic pool cleaner brands over the coming years.
