Market Driver

Growing awareness of health and hygiene among end users is expected to boost growth of the global industrial floor scrubbers market during the forecast period

The adoption of technology in cleaning practices is increasing with consumers preferring natural and eco-friendly products. Industrial floor scrubbers offer high-level cleanliness, keeping the surrounding dust-free and also reduces bacteria. Moreover, the presence of stringent safety and health regulations by various governments and private organizations has increased the demand for industrial floor scrubbers. For instance, pharmaceuticals and drug manufacturers are required to maintain all the hygienic conditions as regulated by the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), a regulatory system enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These factors are expected to generate significant demand for floor scrubbers among healthcare facilities and thereby drive growth of the global industrial floor scrubbers market during the forecast period.

Market Opportunity

Rapid industrialization and economic development in MEA can offer major growth opportunities

The MEA region is expected to witness significant growth in the global industrial floor scrubbers market during the forecast period. This is owing to advent of several groundbreaking solutions and applications namely long battery life, enhanced efficiency, and inclusion of room memory. Thus, vendors in the market are focused on decreasing cost of maintenance and upgrades of scrubbers. Variations in end user preferences and rapidly changing technology are compelling manufacturers to design novel floor scrubbers with enhanced efficiency to continue the profitability of the market.

Market Restraint

Adverse impact floor scrubbers on employment are expected to hinder growth of the global industrial floor scrubbers market over the forecast period

Industrial floor scrubbers are believed to have a negative effect on employment. As floor scrubbers have the capability to clean an entire floor in minutes while requiring only one operator. On the contrary, conventional methods require numerous workers for the same job. As a result of this, many employees are losing their jobs due to adequate and more efficient replacements. However, some companies are still preferring manual cleaning due to the availability of low-cost labor. Thus, these factors are expected to hinder growth of the global industrial floor scrubbers market over the forecast period.
