Window Cleaning Robot Market – Snapshot
An automatic window cleaner functions similar to a robotic vacuum. It uses advance sensors to guide itself around the cleaning surface in the most efficient path. The major difference between the two is that window cleaning robots clean windows instead of floors. Most automated window cleaners use suction, magnets, or a combination of both to stick to the window or other glass surface. Most robotic window cleaners typically feature a two-step cleaning process which begins with wiping off the dirt and then polishing the window. There are two main types: vacuum suction and fan absorption window cleaning robots. Most window cleaning robots use a remote controller or mobile application to steer the window cleaning robot around the surface of the window.
The global window cleaning robot market is driven by an increase in use of automation in a wide variety of applications in commercial and industrial sectors. Furthermore, significant adoption of window cleaning robots in smart homes is expected to impact the global market.
