Increase in Demand for Advanced Cleaning Machine to Drive Market Growth during Forecast Period
The need for advanced cleaning machine/equipment has increased, driving the global airport cleaning machine market. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been investing in research and development (R&D) to develop best in class and advanced cleaning machines. Airports are now required to maintain a certain level of sanitation at the premises. They look for cleaning equipment that are efficient. Airports experience exceptionally high levels of daily foot traffic, and therefore, they are under a great pressure to maintain the health and safety framework. There are number of suppliers operating in the market who supply a range of cleaning equipment in the market. For instance, NWCE Ltd offers a wide range of cleaning machines that includes walk behind scrubber dryer and ride-on scrubber dryer. The company also supplies a range of innovative disinfecting cleaning machines, which are designed to kill harmful germs and pathogens often found in the airport environment.
Airports are utilizing such autonomous machines/robots to enhance and improve the cleanliness procedure. For instance, Key West International Airport (EYW) has become the first airport in Florida, US, to implement a new autonomous robot that eradicates 99.9% of pathogens (including COVID-19) and disinfects the air using ultraviolet (UV) technology. The robot works on a molecular level to destroy the DNA of the virus so that it cannot multiply. Similarly, in 2019, Singapore’s Changi Airport deployed Avidbots Neo floor cleaning robots to improve the productivity of their cleaning teams and reduce costs. Pittsburg Airport, located in the US, also deployed an autonomous UV cleaning machine. The machine was deployed as a part of the airport’s strategy to use innovation from the region’s tech community to tackle the challenges brought by COVID-19 outbreak.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, airports and other public spaces are searching for ways to enhance their cleaning methods. Airports across the world are deploying autonomous machines to upgrade and improve the overall cleanness procedure at the premise. Researchers believe UV-C rays, which have been used to sanitize hospital rooms for decades, can be applied in various high-traffic settings, such as airports, with similar results. Therefore, airports are now deploying advance UV-C rays equipped machines. For instance, in the US, Pittsburgh International Airport partnered with Carnegie Robotics to deploy autonomous floor scrubbers — largely self-driving robots that clean floors in an ultra-efficient manner. Similarly, in Singapore, Changi Airport deployed Avidbot’s Neo Intelligent Floor Cleaning Robots. Avidbot’s Neo is an objective-based floor scrubbing robot that strongly integrates advanced navigation technology, sensors, and software with hardware. It is developed for ease of use, endurance, usability, and security.
Key Findings of Study:
The global airport cleaning machine market is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, and SAM. In 2020, North America led the market with a substantial revenue share, followed by Europe and APAC. North America has seen significant technological advances, which has resulted in highly competitive markets. The governments in the region are focusing on expanding and enhancing the airport infrastructure. The governments have also increased the overall investment and are keen in replacing components and equipment with new and advanced ones. In North America, the US is the leading market and it alone occupies more than 70% of the market share in the North America airport cleaning machine market. The country has been investing in improving its overall sanitation and hygiene policies at domestic and international airports.
