Road Sweepers versus Street Sweepers: Which is better?

The street sweeper market is expected to cross US$ 6.6 Bn by the end of 2030. Street sweeper is a revolutionary technology that deploys cost-efficient and comfortable cleaning of lanes. However, densely populated countries such as India and China, where the streets are considerably small in width, are not very suitable for street sweepers. Thus, companies in the street sweeper market are experiencing slow penetration of these machines in India and China.

Road sweepers are highly preferred in narrow-lane cleaning of streets. However, they are associated with shortfalls such as spending long hours in cleaning and floating dust. Thus, manufacturers should strategically market their equipment to boost sales in India and China. As such, companies are increasing the availability of street sweepers with efficient disposable systems that provide ease in working.
