In 2011 the cleaning robots market reached a value of $676.4 million, and by 2018 this value is forecast to hit $1.8 billion. Market growth comes with the increase in working women and the sharing of household duties between men and women.

The global cleaning robots market is expected 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 increase in futuristic cutting edge industries and the decline of manufacturing industries give 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.

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 the elderly 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.

In the case of personal robots cleaning functions are accompanied by medical, welfare, education, service, and educational functions. The robot cleaning market follows the semiconductor industry. Sales in 2012 are small compared to what will be achieved in the market by 2020.

The robot cleaning market is anticipated to expand to the size of the current automotive market with cleaning robots achieving their fair share of this.
