The Stage is Set for 2015 to be the Year of the Robot Vacuum | Business Wire

NEWARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The home robot vacuum market just got more interesting.

“With emphasis being placed on the market with new entries by notable

mainstream vacuum brands – Dyson and Samsung – who are throwing their

weight behind the category, 2015 promises to the year of the robot

vacuum,” proclaimed Allen Hollingshead, VP of Sales, Americas/Asia

Pacific for Neato

Robotics. “The robotic vacuum category has been on a steep growth

trend for the past several years. It was really just a matter of time

before major vacuum companies such as Dyson with the new 360 Eye and

Samsung joined the game.

Hollingshead continued: “The presence and marketing dollars of these new

entrants will undoubtedly yield broader awareness and growth of the

category among consumers in general.” Reports indicate the Dyson 360

DUBLIN--( report to their offering.

The smart factory market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% between 2017 and 2022, to reach USD 205.42 billion by 2022

The key driving factors for the growth of the smart factory market are the increase in adoption of industrial robots, the evolution of Internet of Things (IoT), growth in demand for smart automation solutions, and increase in emphasis on regulatory compliances. However, the factors such as huge capital investments and the risks associated with security of cyber-physical system are the major factors restraining the growth of this market.

DCS technology is expected to hold a major share of the market by 2022. This growth is attributed to a high rate of industrialization in the developing economies. The developing regions are witnessing the expansion of the manufacturing activities at the highest pace due to the availability of skilled workforce, low labor cost, and availability of resources. Developing countries have expansion and capacity addition plans related to the power sector, which would boost the demand for DCS.


Eye, announced in Japan this past week, will be available starting in

Japan in mid-2015 and then in other international locations sometime

after that.

Neato is the originator of intelligent robots with superior navigational

capabilities, efficient and logical cleaning patterns, rather than the

random bumping of current products.

The foundation of Neato’s robotic technology is its patented Neato

Botvision™, a breakthrough in robotic mapping and navigation. Neato

Botvision uses proprietary navigation software that's based on SLAM

(Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) – the same technology used by

the Google self-driving car.

Neato’s proprietary laser distance system cleans a room up to 4 times

faster than other robot vacuums and can make multiple trips to

efficiently clean a house up to 2200 square feet.

In addition, Neato designed a D-shaped robot with three straight sides

and a large wall hugging brush. it's the only robot on the market with

corner clever technology for maximum corner cleaning efficiency.

Best for Pet Hair

Neato has been cited by top industry reviewers, including CNET,

as the best robot vacuum for picking up pet hair. Users can schedule

automatic weekly or even daily cleanings to keep their homes free of pet

hair and dander.

And, it’s also a real vacuum: Neato robots are built from the ground up

to be true vacuums, not sweepers, with the powerful suction users want

from their vacuum.


robot vacuums also are available in a range of prices, offering the

best price/value in the industry, starting at $399US.
