Introduction To Automated Facade Cleaning System
Facade, in civil architecture, is referred to as the front exterior side of a building. While designing a building, it is often considered as the most important aspect, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building. Facade systems provide numerous benefits to the building, such as, building aesthetics, fresh air for occupants, improved energy efficiency, greater light penetration & filtration, and others.
The facade systems require cleaning for maintenance of the building, as well as to keep the original aesthetics of the building architecture. In earlier days, facade systems were cleaned by manual processes. Human workers hung up by rope to clean the facade of the building. Owing to greater risks involved, automated facade cleaning systems were developed.
Market Size and Forecast
The automated facade cleaning system market is observing vibrant growth on account of growing demand for cleaning and janitorial services in residential and non-residential buildings, so as to have greater life of building, and to have minimal repairing costs. Additionally, increasing workplace incidences is driving the need for automation of high risk carrying activities, especially in the construction industry. Workers, who are into facade cleaning services, are exposed to high rise buildings with greater risk of accidents at work. Growing incidences occurred while cleaning the facade by the workers, is raising the demand for automated facade cleaning systems amongst facade cleaning service providers and consumers. All of these notable factors are contributing significantly towards the growth of the automated facade cleaning system market. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), around 2.78 million deaths per year occurs as a result of occupational accidents.
The market is anticipated to record robust CAGR throughout the forecast period, i.e. 2019-2027. The automated facade cleaning system market is segmented by end-user into residential and non-residential, out of which, residential segment is anticipated to hold largest market share on account of growing utilization of facade systems in commercial buildings by builders and contractors. Additionally, builders and contractors have realized the importance of facade systems, as they protect the building from external environmental forces, and also add aesthetics to the building.

Growing Real Estate Industry and The Increasing Utilization of Facades in Buildings
According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), real estate sector in India is expected to reach a market size of US$ 1 trillion by 2030 from US$ 120 billion in 2017. Additionally, according to Statistics Norway, total number of dwellings in Norway increased from 19,748 numbers in 2009 to 31,647 numbers in 2018.
With the growing real estate industry, new residential and non-residential buildings are coming up at a fast pace. Builders and contractors are changing the way buildings are designed. Shifting trend towards building aesthetics and green buildings, is increasing the demand for application of facade to buildings. As more and more facades are in demand for being applied in buildings, the requirement to ensure cleaning and maintenance of these facades is also growing, that is anticipated to increase the demand for automated facade cleaning systems amongst builders, contractors and cleaning services providers.
Rising Need for Automation and Robotics
There is a shifting trend amongst enterprises for automation technologies and implementation of robotics at work. Lack of skilled professionals is raising the need amongst enterprises to opt for robots. Moreover, growing concerns for increasing accidental occurrences at work places, coupled with, increasing usage of service robots for professional use, rising sales of robots, and increasing expenditure for R&D of robotic devices & its technical advances, all of these factors are contributing significantly towards the growth of the automated facade cleaning system market. According to International Federation of Robotics (IFR), sales of industrial robots in India reached a new record of 4,771 new units installed in 2018, which is an increase of 39% than its previous year 2017. Additionally, total number of professional service robots sold was more than 271,000 units in 2018 from 168,000 units in 2017.
Lack Of Skilled Personals and Lack of Product Awareness
Automated facade cleaning systems require an operational plan for its implementation. Unavailability of skilled personals to plan and operate the automated facade cleaning systems, coupled with lack of awareness of the product to builders, contractors and cleaning services providers is anticipated to act as a barrier to the growth of the automated facade cleaning system market.
