Here is why technologies like robo-vacuum cleaners are receiving green signal from the consumers.
A regular day in every household starts with chores like dusting, sweeping and mopping. Due to the fast-paced urban lifestyles, many a time these small chores activities become more of a burden. That’s why technologies like robo-vacuum cleaners receiving green signal from the consumers.
The market for robotic vacuum cleaners is growing at a rapid pace with a global market value of US$ 3.9 billion, as per recent reports. As they complete the chores in lesser time, a heavy demand is being recorded across commercial and residential sectors, making its distributorship a profitable business to invest in. Here’s why robo-vacuum distributorship could be a next big business.
In the technology-driven world, the gadgets that offer full-automation attract more consumers. In case of robo-vacuum cleaners, what’s different for consumers is the automation that ensures minimal to no human intervention. They are fitted with sensors, are compact in size and can easily access the harder-to-reach spaces such as under beds, cabinets and tables without any human intervention (and without hitting other objects). Robo-vacuum cleaners introduce users to effortless cleaning, which is the need of the hour.
Another growth catalyst is the increasing disposable income of the consumers. While double-income families are predominant in today’s time, the affordability to use high-tech gadgets is also rising. Also, the higher standards of living are influencing consumers to be more receptive towards technologies that can raise their standards even more. A robo-vacuum cleaner in India comes at a price range of Rs 39,000 to Rs 75,000, which is quite expensive. Apparently, using a completely automated vacuum cleaner to carry out household chores is not for someone who cannot afford such luxury.
The invasion of global players in India also drives the cleaning robots market. For instance, iRobot, one of the leading global robo-vacuum brands, has given the authorisation of distributing iRobot vacuum cleaners in India to Puresight Systems Pvt. Ltd, which has made the distribution of robo-vacuum much more accessible to Indians. The invasion of foreign brands has also made it an opportunity worth exploring for budding entrepreneurs.
Business Opportunities in Distributorship
Robo-vacuum cleaners are being demanded by consumers from all across the world as it requires no human intervention, which is the need of the hour.
In terms of manufacturing of robo-vacuum cleaners, a handful of big companies dominate the market in India. However, a lot of other players are also emerging in the industry and are seeking distributors to expand their reach throughout India.
It is important to understand the fact that only manufacturing of such products will not work until and unless the effective supply chain is not developed. An efficient distribution chain of robo-vacuum cleaners is essential to meet the increasing demand, for which distributorship has to be availed to local sellers and resellers. Some brands like Puresight Systems Pvt. Ltd has been looking for channel partners and resellers across India to meet the growing demand, hence encouraging entrepreneurship opportunities for those who have a sound knowledge of distribution and supply chain.
