Impact of COVID-19 on the Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the global robotic vacuum cleaners industry with increased demand from residential end-users. The market players have witnessed significant growth in demand for robotic vacuum cleaners during the pandemic. The increased demand was attributed to high consumer awareness related to cleanliness and germ prevention in homes due to the rapid spread of the virus. In 2020, consumers focused on buying products to keep homes clean due to the increasing importance of maintaining hygiene. Consumers in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific purchased robotic vacuum cleaners through online channels during the pandemic.

The manufacturing companies were compelled to temporarily shut down manufacturing & supply chain operations due to complete lockdowns and barriers on import & export in Asian and European countries in the first & second quarters of 2020. Additionally, mandatory orders related to ‘shelter-in-place impacted the supply chain activities in 2020. However, in the second quarter, companies witnessed an increasing demand for robotic vacuum cleaners in the residential sector due to the limited availability of house help in several countries.
