INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
- Product type
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCT TYPE
Flexibility and easy maneuverability of canister vacuum is driving the growth of the global industrial vacuum cleaner market
Canister vacuum dominated around half of the total share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The canister systems are designed with a cleaning nozzle which is placed at the end of a wand and is linked to the unit with a hose, and it also contains a dirtbag and a motor. The flexibility and easy maneuverability of the equipment is one of the main factors attributing to the growth of this segment. Canisters are considered as one of the most powerful cleaning systems. The hose can be used to clean under the furniture or stairs, because of which canisters are mostly used in commercial places, such as hotels, shopping malls, and offices. Hoover, Sanitaire, Oreck, Pullman, and Henry are the leading canister providers in the global industrial vacuum cleaner market.
Upright cleaners are often used in large commercial spaces such as airports, auditorium, and other large open spaces. These systems are designed to collect the dirt by a combination of sweeping and vibration. Backpack cleaners are designed with cooling technology to ensure comfort and safety of the user. The convenience, maneuverability, and versatility will drive the demand of these systems.
INSIGHTS BY TECHNOLOGY
Pneumatic technology offers safe vacuuming of sharp and hazardous objects
Pneumatic technology is the fastest growing segment, at a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecast period. These systems operated on compressed air driven pumps that function on Bernoulli’s principle. The air driven pumps forces compressed air through a nozzle by increasing velocity and lower air pressure, which sucks the dust and debris along with the outside air and is collected in a dirtbag. These cleaners are compact and lightweight, and it regulates the pressure as per the application. Since extreme temperature doesn’t have much impact of the air pumps, it can be used in extreme industrial conditions, such as metal works, mining and chemical industries. The low cost of maintenance and safe vacuuming of sharp and hazardous objects, such as glass fragments, metal filings, or combustible dust is propelling the growth of this segment.
Electrical cleaners are available in different types such as canisters, upright, and backpacks in the market. The major brands that offer electrical cleaners include Hover, Oreck, Vax and Dirt Devil.
INSIGHTS BY SYSTEM
Portable cleaners are lightweight and come in different sizes
Portable systems occupied more than half of the share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The different shapes and sizes to cater to different industrial applications are one of the major factors attributing to the growth of this segment. Portable systems are designed to provide the users the flexibility to clean across different locations. The flexibility and light weight form of these systems are used in almost all commercial places such as restaurants, hotels, offices and shopping malls. Some of the most popular portable cleaners are used for industrial and commercial purposes, and it includes canisters, backpacks, and uprights.
Stationary cleaners are designed with a special HEPA filter, which acts as secondary filters for removing potentially harmful dust before it reaches the operator. The stationary cleaners come in three-phase or single-phase power source, with an electric motor, pneumatic, or diesel engine.
INSIGHTS BY END-USER
Efficiency and safety of workers in the metal and mining industry is driving the global industrial vacuum cleaner market
Metalworking and mining sector is the fastest growing end-user, at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The increasing focus on efficiency and safety of workers is driving the demand for these products in this segment. These cleaners are used for recovery of coal dust and various other liquids used across mining facilities in the market. Hazardous materials such as, magnesium, sodium, and plastics which is highly combustible are also collected using an industrial cleaner, thus maintaining the safety of the plant. The increase in the number of cases of pulmonary diseases such as lung cancer across the metalworking and mining industries will drive the demand in the global industrial vacuum cleaner market.
The use of industrial cleaners for various manufacturing industries such as automotive, aviation and aerospace, electrical and electronic equipment’s, maritime and shipbuilding, and processors and semiconductors is augmenting the growth. The increasing use of cleaners with high-temperature resistant technology is used for the cleaning of ovens without waiting for it gets cool across the food and beverage industry is augmented the transformation of the global market.
