The larger area, combined with the increased soil and germs passengers, brings in calls for some creative solutions. Fussy, detailed cleaning can’t be done on a daily basis, but certain tasks can’t wait. Daily floor and restroom maintenance of airports, bus stations, and the like call for techniques and equipment that clean larger areas in shorter amounts of time.
Market Drivers and Trends
Today, the entire world is facing and fighting COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 is a disease that spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Keeping cleanliness has, therefore, become paramount importance. As the economy opens and travelling to various countries/states eases up, airport authority has added responsibility of keeping the airports sanitized and clean for passenger safety and security. This has therefore led to an increase in need and demand for effective and comprehensive cleaning machines.
Airport authorities operating across the globe have now changed and updated their sanitation and cleanliness norms. For instance, in India, Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) and Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) have been maintaining enhanced standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Over 400 housekeeping staff were deployed for the process of large-scale sanitation. Similarly, in the US, the BWI Marshall Airport terminal has also invested in upgrading and enhancing the cleanliness norms and procedures. In June 2020, in Toronto, Canada, The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), which operates and maintains Toronto Pearson, launched its ‘Healthy Airport’ program - an all-inclusive program that summarizes the steps the airport and its partners are taking to be ready for the new realities of air travel, and to lead the aviation industry in advancing the future of healthy travel corridors.
Market Restraints and Challenges
Increasing overall maintenance and repair cost of airport cleaning machines and likely restraining market revenue growth in the forecast period. Further, increasing volatility in raw material prices and the high maintenance cost of airport cleaning machines are anticipated to hinder market growth during the forecast period. Growing volatility in raw material prices negatively influences the ability of manufacturers to produce airport cleaning machines based on specific requirements.
Global Airport Cleaning Machine Market Segmental Overview
The report analyses the global airport cleaning machine market based on type, application, and region.
Global Airport Cleaning Machine Market by Type
Based on type, it is segmented into truck-mounted and walk-behind. The walk-behind segment is expected to be the largest segment in the airport cleaning machine market in 2021. Walk-behind airport cleaning machines are traditional equipment that are used majorly for ground cleaning. These machines are designed with triangular brushes, and they exhibit high cleaning efficiency. Due to above mentioned factors, the walk-behind segment is expected to hold a major market share in 2021.
Global Airport Cleaning Machine Market by Application

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in economic challenges owing to subsequent lockdowns. In 2020, the manufacturing industry was severely affected due to a drastic decrease in product demand, falling prices, and storage shortages. A swift decline in manufacturing revenues due to virtually nonexistent manufacturing demand and slow production capabilities had limited the expenditure on the production of airport cleaning machines worldwide. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the global airport cleaning machine market in 2020.
However, in 2021, the manufacturing industry started recovering from the significant labor and supply chain challenges that triggered the production of airport cleaning machines.
