US Contract Cleaning Service Revenues to Grow 3.3% Yearly in Nominal Terms to 2023


Cleveland, OH, February 27, 2019 — US revenues for contract cleaning services are forecast to expand 3.3% annually in nominal terms through 2023, according to Contract Cleaning Services: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Providers are expected to benefit from continued growth in residential and nonresidential building space, the number of business establishments, and consumer incomes and spending. However, while the high level of price competition in the industry helps keep these services affordable, it also restrains revenues. In addition, the tight labor market in the US and rising minimum wages in some states and municipalities presents a challenge to the industry in terms of recruiting and retaining quality workers and limiting increases in the cost of services.

Revenue growth for interior building cleaning services – by far the largest segment – will account for the bulk of value gains through 2023. In the leading nonresidential market, increases in business establishments and nonresidential floor space will spur advances. Outsourcing as a means of reducing operating costs will continue to support the use of contract interior cleaning services.
