US demand for janitorial equipment and supplies will rise 2.2 percent annually through 2019 to $7.1 billion, driven by pent-up demand for automated floor cleaning equipment. Office and institutional buildings will remain the largest and fastest growing markets. In-house purchasers will remain dominant, but will be outpaced by contract cleaners.

This study analyzes the $6.4 billion US janitorial equipment and supply industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by product (e.g., manual cleaning products, bags and containers, automated floor cleaning equipment), market (e.g., office buildings, institutional buildings, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, residential buildings) and purchaser (in-house cleaners, contract cleaners).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 29 industry competitors, including Newell Rubbermaid, Nilfisk, and Tennant.
