Currently, at $4.6 billion, the robot vacuum cleaner market is projected to experience a 200% increase over the next decade growing at a compound annual growth rate of 12.3%. The reasons are not far-fetched: A robot vacuum cleaner allows you to clean your house with minimal effort.

This device would map out your home, go round to clean, and then report back to its charging dock on its own! And because they are smart, they can be controlled by apps on your mobile phone, which means, you can practically clean your house anywhere in the world. Smart vacuums are very quiet, efficient, and extremely convenient.

Some robot vacuums like those from Ecovacs, also have HEPA filters that help to remove allergens from surfaces, 3-in-1 modes to sweep, suck and mop and some even have technology for hot air drying as they mop.
