The global steam cleaner market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 6% during between 2018 and 2024, according to a new report that cites changes in our attitude towards 'green cleaning' as one of the reasons why.

Equipment manufacturers are constantly evolving technology to meet industrial standards, thereby generating several opportunities for the players. Both residential and commercial end-users in developed countries and in a few emerging economies are focusing on adopting sustainable technologies.

The adoption of steam cleaner devices in residential settings is primarily driven by the need to achieve a hygienic and chemical-free cleaning of floors, walls, and kitchens. The machines are gaining traction as deep cleaning and sanitisation of carpets at home is growing. Kitchen and carpets form the largest application end-users in the residential segment.
