Market Overview

There was a time in our history when all people knew Dyson for was vacuums. But what began with one man and one idea inside a coach house in Wiltshire, has since transformed into an 8,000-strong global technology company spanning multiple product categories and more than 70 countries around the world.

But the transformation of Dyson is far from over. Our technology pipeline stretches 25 years into the future, and will see more new product categories emerge – four by 2020 alone. Dyson’s place in the connected world sits at the heart of our strategy – our future is increasingly centered on digital technologies that are intelligent and connected. We have made our first steps into this world with Dyson 360 eye™ robot and Dyson Pure™ Cool Link™. The future is a world where we can constantly learn about our owners from their interactions with our products. These are enhanced product functions, which will allow us to manage a much more personalised relationship with our owners, deliver a perfect Dyson experience and importantly make our products even better.
