Opportunities in South Korea Robot Vacuum Cleaner Market

Improved Internet Connectivity in South Korea

During the early 2000s, South Korea constantly set new, measurable national goals, examined market impediments, and then created and put into effect policies meant to encourage competition and utilisation. South Korea has effectively achieved ubiquitous fibre connection in just a few years. In contrast, in the United States, the infrastructure for fibre to the home ranges from 20% to 30%. Furthermore, South Korea's 5G infrastructure has enabled it to surpass the United States' 5G capabilities. Hence, access to 5G internet connectivity and smartphones lets consumers control the robot vacuum cleaner from their phones. Moreover, cordless robot vacuum cleaners are most preferred by customers for their ease of use, securing them a significant share of the market.
    

Increasing Purchasing Power and Dependence on Technology 

One of the largest IT firms in South Korea, KT, has teamed up with the restaurant chain called Mad for Garlic to provide AI-serving robots. The robot can easily navigate the constrained spaces between tables and avoid obstructions by using 3D spatial mapping and other technology. Up to four tables can be attended by the robot in one trip, and young customers and kids usually like seeing the robot. Additionally, after COVID-19, clients believe that receiving food via a robot is safer and fresher in general.

 

Increased disposable income and hectic lifestyles are two significant factors contributing to the growth of robot vacuum cleaners in South Korea. South Korea is one of the most overworked nations in the world. The working hours are quite long, and people often go to work on the weekends to meet their targets. Hence, people rely more on technology to get their daily household chores done. This is aiding the robot vacuum cleaner market in following a positive trajectory.

 

The Need to Reduce Human Interaction and Increase Cleanliness Drives the Market Growth

The widespread COVID-19 virus and the need to maintain social distance increased the sales of vacuum cleaners in South Korea. Although the manufacturing rate slowed down during the pandemic due to the unstable supply of raw materials which are required for manufacturing the robot vacuum cleaners, the robot vacuum market is recovering steadily as several manufacturers launched the UV sterilisation feature. People are willing to spend their money on sanitation products to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This factor helped boost the market for automatic robot vacuum cleaners in South Korea.

 

One of the key variables driving the market ahead is the increasing demand for robot cleaners in hospitals. Robotic cleaners are used for a variety of tasks in addition to cleaning, like detecting temperature and restricting guest access. These robots can also be employed to clean hospital hallways that have the technological capabilities to avoid obstructions and move about freely. Long-term market growth for robot cleaners in Korea may be impacted by such advancements.

 

Challenges in the Robot Vacuum Market

High cost and Energy Consumption can Impede the Growth

Robot vacuum cleaners are expensive which makes them accessible for the upper-middle to upper strata of the society. Also, the maintenance cost of such devices is high since various technologically advanced sensors and transmitters are embedded in the product. Robot vacuum cleaners consume high electrical energy, and the inclusion of new technologically advanced features uses up a lot of energy which could make environmentally conscious customers not to buy the product and hamper the market growth.
