US Demand for Janitorial Equipment & Supplies to Rise 1.5% Yearly in Nominal Terms to 2023


Cleveland, OH, April 18, 2019 — US demand for janitorial equipment and supplies is forecast to see 1.5% annual gains in nominal terms through 2023, according to Janitorial Equipment & Supplies: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Advances will be driven by economic expansion, which will increase building utilization and boost daily cleaning requirements, as well as promote growth in the number of business establishments and gains in nonresidential floor space. Heightened interest in sustainable and environmentally friendly cleaning practices will buoy demand for products that limit water or chemical consumption. Concerns about the risk of cross-contamination and employee injury will drive sales of value-added products. Rising interest in autonomous floor care machines will further fuel sales, as will interest in replacing older, noisy equipment with quieter products suited to the service industry trend toward daytime cleaning. Pricing pressure attributable to imports and market maturity in manual cleaning products and bags and containers will prevent faster gains.
