Trends in floor-care products
Performance and function remain the most important factors for consumers worldwide. Consumers want vacuum cleaners that have high suction power and are ergonomic and user-friendly.
Urbanization, with a growing number of small households across the world, has resulted in elevated demand for small, compact and efficient vacuum cleaners. They should also be well-designed so that they can be visible and easily accessible, for instance, to meet the need for quick cleaning of small spaces in the home, such as the kitchen and hallway.
Greater environmental awareness in many regions is driving demand for vacuum cleaners that use less energy and that are manufactured in a sustainable manner.
