With the increasing recognition of robot technology and products in major traditional industries, there are more and more application scenarios for service robots, including home use, customer service, hotel welcome, delivery, security, cleaning, etc. As cities become more and more modern, the public has higher and higher requirements for environmental cleanliness. The market for commercial floor cleaning robot and autonomous floor cleaning robot is rising rapidly, and their application scenarios are extensive: such as airports, shopping malls, hospitals, Industrial parks, production workshops, logistics warehouses, etc., have broad prospects.
Thanks to major advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and mobile data transmission, driverless robotic floor cleaners are a technologically sound option and a logical upgrade to traditional human-operated cleaning equipment.
commercial floor cleaning robot and autonomous floor cleaning robot, can relieve the burden of time-consuming and tedious cleaning tasks to a great extent. They will increase cleaning efficiency without sacrificing quality and consistency. Additionally, robotic floor cleaners featuring real-time performance data tracking provide proof of cleaning and enable data-driven cleaning management. The operating software automatically records the area covered and consumables used and visualizes the data in easy-to-understand graphs.
However, most off-the-shelf commercial floor cleaning robots, due to their relatively bulky bodies, are only suitable for use in certain commercial facility environments, such as luxury hotels and shopping malls, where there are wide spaces and barrier-free areas that can be used frequently Clean up. When it comes to cleaning small to medium commercial facilities up to 2,000 square meters, there has been no better alternative to manual labor. Such facilities, typified by workplaces and retail stores, have cramped areas and narrow aisles where large commercial cleaning machines cannot function properly. Therefore, to solve this kind of problem, it is still from the efficiency and efficiency as the starting point.
Sharp issues exposed by commercial scene cleaningThe shortage of basic labor force in 2022 has become an acute issue of global concern. In China , 1965 was the first population peak. Tens of millions of people in this age group will reach the retirement age of 60 and will quickly exit the labor market in the next three to five years. According to the data of the Ministry of Labor of China , there are 1,400 million people are engaged in commercial cleaning work. Globally , affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and anti-globalization, the lack of basic labor force has affected all developed countries, and the labor force is facing problems such as wage surges. The impact of these structural changes on the demand side has created a blue ocean market of hundreds of billions of global commercial cleaning robots.
Against this background, the commercial cleaning industry faces three core pain points.
1. Recruitment is difficult and expensive. Now the recruitment cost of a cleaner in Shenzhen reaches 2,500 yuan, and this amount does not include the salary of the cleaner.
2. It is difficult to standardize the work. The average working time of cleaning aunts is less than 4 months, and they need to be rotated three times a year, and the increase in the turnover rate of personnel has greatly increased the difficulty of standardization of operations.
3. Management cannot be scaled. Chinese property companies are going through a big merger. In 2020, the market share of China's top 100 property companies will exceed 50%, the management area of leading property companies has exceeded 10 billion square meters, and the number of cleaning staff will reach hundreds of thousands. Therefore, improving management efficiency through digital tools has become Industry consensus.
How Can Commercial Cleaning Robots Help Reduce Office Operating Costs?To be sure, every business owner has calculated the cost of office maintenance at some point and has an idea of cleaning costs. But do you really know how much you spend each year keeping your office floors clean? From experience, clients are very surprised when we help them figure out labor costs, hours worked, cleaning days a year, taxes they need to pay, and extras like vacation, sick leave, and HR hours. Gone are the days when autonomous floor cleaners were only marketed as a high-tech experience. Today, every sale ends with calculating ROI!
Solve the core pain points to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of commercial floor cleaning robotsFocusing on the core pain points of customers in the commercial cleaning industry, a new robot solution was launched. Its robot products will have four attributes: clean, smart, digital, and money-saving. Among them, cleanliness is the basic attribute of cleaning robots and the fundamental value of products.
In addition, the commercial environment is very complex, with various floor materials, accompanied by a large number of people passing through, and the environment layout changes at any time, which puts forward extremely high requirements for the intelligence of the robot.
Digitization is the cornerstone of large-scale management. Robots that are constantly moving and working in buildings are the best way to naturally reach and deeply understand this scene.
Finally, saving money is also the eternal pursuit of customers in this industry. Cleaning robots can work 7×24 hours, replacing a large number of manpower, reducing staff and increasing efficiency for customers.
The advent of the second machine age, artificial intelligence has contributed a lot. Compared with the previous upsurges, the changes brought about by artificial intelligence-related technologies this time are more reflected in the performance improvement and efficiency optimization in different vertical fields-the scenarios touched by "intelligence" are no longer novel "intelligence" in the laboratory. Toys” instead play an important job role in the real business world. Therefore, in the face of an aging population and a shortage of low-level labor, a large number of labor-intensive industries are actively looking for alternatives, trying to improve operational efficiency through human-machine collaboration or even machine substitution. The emergence of commercial floor cleaning robot and autonomous floor cleaning robot is a breakthrough attempt in this area. Among them, the commercial service robot for the commercial cleaning field has become one of the scenarios where the technology is first implemented and verified by virtue of the iteration of manufacturing technology and innovations such as SLAM and human-computer interaction technologies.
The development of the robot industry is entering an accelerator. In addition to cutting-edge technologies such as humanoid robots and robot dogs, the robot market focused on specific scenarios represented by commercial cleaning robots is also gaining momentum. According to data from the market research organization Yiou Intelligence, it is estimated that by 2025, China's commercial cleaning robots will show a continuous high growth trend, and the market size will reach about 74.9 billion yuan. Coupled with the increasingly prominent contradiction between basic labor shortage and cleaning demand, it provides opportunities for the development of commercial cleaning robots. At present, Qibo Technology takes commercial cleaning as the entry point, and hopes to occupy a place through breakthroughs in core software and hardware technologies.
