Scrubber Dryer Market to Expand at a Staggering CAGR of Close to 8% from 2022 to 2031

Industry Insights

Nearly 5.5 million scrubber dryers were sold in 2019, which translates to just half of the global demand expected for 2031. However, even though scrubber dryers have gained immense popularity over the years, which has created a critical situation for traditional cleaning equipment, still, the market is not yet in a position to overtake the traditional cleaning equipment market.

The COVID-19 pandemic exhibited an opportunity for scrubber dryer manufactures and suppliers to enhance their product offerings of antimicrobial scrub pads and cleaning solutions. With increasing cases of COVID-19 across regions, demand for scrubber dryers has seen a dramatic rise.

The global scrubber dryer market is poised to expand to a CAGR close to 8% over the forecast period of 2021-2031.
