Global Central Vacuum Systems Market - Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview

The global central vacuum systems market experienced a valuation of USD 371.1 million in 2021, and it is projected to reach USD 675.2 million by 2027, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.49%.

Central vacuum systems, also referred to as ducted or built-in systems, are commonly installed in residential and commercial buildings. These systems consist of a power unit, inlets, and collection pipes strategically placed throughout the premises. Equipped with a powerful motor, central vacuum systems provide highly efficient cleaning capabilities, effectively removing dirt, debris, and dust. They can even eliminate microparticles such as mold spores, pollen, and dust mites. Unlike traditional vacuum cleaners that recirculate some particles in the air, central vacuum systems ensure complete removal of allergens, dust, and particles.

People spend approximately 90% of their time indoors worldwide. Pollution caused by the release of particles and gases is the primary source of indoor air pollutants. High temperatures and humidity levels can also elevate the concentration of pollutants. Poor air quality can lead to symptoms like fatigue, headaches, and respiratory irritation. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), exposure to both indoor and outdoor air pollution results in over seven million premature deaths annually worldwide, with 3.8 million attributed to indoor air pollution.

On days with high allergen levels, maintaining good indoor air quality can be achieved by refreshing the air and cooling the home with fans or air conditioners, as well as utilizing a central vacuum for cleaning. Central vacuum systems offer numerous benefits for individuals suffering from allergies, as they effectively remove dust, mites, pollen, animal dander, and other allergens.

Compared to portable vacuum cleaners, central vacuum systems are gaining increasing importance due to their advantages. Portable vacuum cleaners have several disadvantages, including their weight, noise levels, frequent replacements, short lifespan, and associated repair and replacement costs. Portable vacuum cleaners require frequent emptying and tend to wear out quickly. In contrast, central vacuum systems are designed to last for 15 to 20 years, especially with the incorporation of newer and improved technologies. As a result, there is growing demand for central vacuum systems in non-residential spaces, particularly in industrial, hospitality, and healthcare sectors.

As smart products become more prevalent in consumers’ daily lives, industrial product providers are also investing in this sector to maximize returns. Smart products present significant opportunities for consumers seeking enhanced efficiency. Key advancements in central vacuum systems include HEPA bags, NFPA certification, connected systems, and bag/filter full indicators.

The global central vacuum systems market faces certain obstacles to its growth. These include the high cost of central vacuum systems, the preference for rental cleaning equipment and contract cleaning services, as well as the availability of substitutes such as traditional vacuum cleaners, steam cleaners, commercial scrubbers, and sweepers. Some emerging and underdeveloped economies have low adoption rates of central vacuum systems due to the presence of these substitutes, which hinders the growth of the market.

It took nearly a decade for the market to fully recover from the recession and generate revenue levels similar to those in 2007. Additionally, the product life cycle of central vacuum systems significantly influences consumer purchasing behavior. A central vacuum system can operate for approximately 10 to 20 years depending on usage. Therefore, the purchase of central vacuum systems is directly linked to new facility construction, residential home development, and expansion in various industrial sectors.

From 2000 to 2005, the central vacuum systems market experienced steady growth and acceptance, particularly in developed regions of Europe and North America, with growth rates ranging from 4% to 8%. However, the market witnessed an average decline of 15% in value between 2007 and 2011 due to the sudden onset of the recession. Recovery began in 2012, with a return to normalization, particularly between 2012 and 2019.

Based on pre-COVID projections, the central vacuum systems market was expected to grow at a rate of 7% to 9% during the period from 2019 to 2025, achieving complete post-recession recovery. The COVID-19 pandemic provided an opportunity for accelerated growth in the market. Developments in the vacuum cleaner market, including central vacuum systems, exhibited moderate but consistent growth rates. Interestingly, unlike conventional cleaning equipment, central vacuum systems experienced increased demand in 2020, especially from the healthcare sector.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on consumer appliance industries, including conventional vacuum cleaners. However, it has acted as a stimulus for the central vacuum systems industry, leading to impressive revenue gains during the forecast period.

The healthcare sector, in response to the pandemic, has seen an increased adoption of central vacuum systems for continuous collection of dust, debris, and allergens within their facilities. Post-pandemic, the demand for central vacuum systems is expected to be at its peak, particularly in developing countries. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is projected to experience substantial growth in the adoption of central vacuum systems.

The global central vacuum systems market is divided into various segments based on installation, capacity, type, end-user, and geography.

In 2021, the ground-mounted central vacuum systems market held the largest share, accounting for 64.03% of the market. This can be attributed to the fact that wall-mounted central vacuum systems offer longer run times, higher suction power, and larger containment units. However, the wall-mounted segment is expected to experience the highest incremental and absolute growth during the forecast period.

The central vacuum systems market for capacities below 6,000 sq. ft is projected to witness significant incremental growth of over USD 158 million during the forecast period. In 2021, this segment held the largest market share of more than 52%, driven by the increasing demand for central vacuum systems in large commercial spaces that require higher capacities.

In terms of type, the bag segment accounted for over half of the global central vacuum systems market share in 2021. This is primarily due to the ease of cleaning, lower maintenance requirements, and hygienic nature of bag systems. Additionally, the non-residential end-user segment accounted for approximately 72% of the global market share in 2021, indicating a growing demand for central vacuum systems in commercial, industrial, hospitality, and healthcare sectors.

Europe currently dominates the global central vacuum systems market compared to other regions. However, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to experience the fastest growth with a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the strong economic growth, increasing disposable income, expansion of commercial spaces, and improvements in the retail and hospitality industries in the APAC region. Both commercial and residential spaces in the APAC region are likely to witness high adoption rates for central vacuum systems.
