DUBLIN, February 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ckz3b2/household_vacuum) have announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Household Vacuum Cleaners Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.
Increased disposable income has encouraged people to invest significantly in advanced home appliances to improve their lifestyle. Spreading awareness about the benefits of using vacuum cleaners is influencing households to purchase these appliances for fulfilling cleaning needs. There are different types of vacuum cleaners available depending on the cleaning needs and types of surface to be cleaned. Upright vacuum cleaners, canister vacuum cleaners, central vacuum cleaners, drum vacuum cleaners, wet/dry vacuum cleaners, robotic vacuum cleaners and handheld vacuum cleaners are the most popular types available in the market.
The demand for advanced technology vacuum cleaners, using high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration technology, is increasing globally. Vacuum cleaners with standard filters spread dirt and dust in air and are also not able to trap fine particles such as pet dander or pollen. As against this, vacuum cleaners equipped with HEPA filters offer compact cleaning solutions which prevent allergens from invading lungs and are thus gaining more importance. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 300 million people suffer from asthma globally and this count is expected to reach 400 million by 2015. Rising electricity prices is the major inhibiting factor for growth of the household vacuum cleaners market as these appliances consume a lot of electricity.
Canister vacuum cleaners are more expensive compared to other types of popular vacuum cleaners such as upright vacuum cleaners and robotic vacuum cleaners. However, they provide a better cleaning experience. Robotic vacuum cleaners are gaining popularity among households in developed regions, namely North America and Europe. Asia-Pacific dominates the global household vacuum cleaners market and held a share of xx% in 2012. It is expected to maintain its leading position through the forecast period from 2012 to 2018. In North America and Europe, the replacement demand is high as households are replacing their traditional vacuum cleaners with eco-friendly and energy efficient products. Household vacuum cleaners in Latin America and Middle East are also expected to gain popularity due to increased awareness about their benefits.
