US Revenues for Contract Cleaning Services to Grow 4.4% in 2021


Cleveland, OH, October 27, 2021 — US revenues for contract cleaning services are forecast to increase 2.2% per year in nominal dollars through 2025, 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.

US contract cleaning services revenues are expected to grow 4.4% in 2021. Providers will benefit from the reopening of most public spaces (much of which occurred in 2020), some businesses' plans to return to the office, and increased attention to the sanitization of public spaces. However, uncertainty is expected into 2022, as vaccination rates have slowed and new variants of the coronavirus have become more prevalent. Despite these setbacks, the full approval of the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19 by the FDA in August 2021 empowered businesses, government authorities, and organizations to mandate the vaccine.
