Global Street Sweeper Market – Overview

A street sweeper’s primary role is to clean urban streets, initially serving as “sanitation workers” due to the growing importance of sanitation and waste management in cities. Traditionally, street sweepers used brooms and shovels to clear streets of debris, agricultural waste, and dirt. Later on, water-based methods were introduced. The 19th century saw the development of mechanical sweepers, enhancing efficiency. Modern street sweepers are now mounted on trucks and equipped with vacuum systems to collect waste effectively. Historically, older street sweepers left small debris particles, which were considered less problematic since rain would wash them away. Today, these small particles are recognized as significant stormwater pollutants. Street sweeping has emerged as an effective means of reducing stormwater runoff pollution, endorsed by the Environmental Protection Agency as a best practice for water quality protection. While newer street sweepers can capture smaller debris particles, traditional mechanical broom-type sweepers still dominate the US market, constituting around 90% of all street sweepers in use today.
