Janitorial Equipment & Supplies

Gains will be driven by companies replacing their janitorial products with updated goods designed to improve ergonomics and worker efficiency, and use less water and cleaning solution.

US demand to grow 2.2% annually through 2015

US demand for janitorial equipment and supplies (excluding chemical products) is forecast to grow 2.2 percent per year to $6.7 billion in 2015, representing an improvement over the decline registered between 2005 and 2010. During the 2007-2009 economic recession, many firms delayed purchasing cleaning products, especially higher-cost products such as automated floor cleaning equipment.

Gains will be driven by companies replacing their janitorial products with updated goods designed to improve ergonomics and worker efficiency. Heightened interest in sustainable practices will also support market growth, as more companies purchase value-added products developed to use less water and cleaning solution than traditional products. However, even as the economy continues to recover from the recession, demand growth will be limited by the reluctance of companies to reintroduce cleaning and maintenance costs that they cut during the recession.

Manual cleaning products to grow the fastest

Manual cleaning products are expected to see the fastest gains of any major product segment through 2015. Growth in the number of US business establishments will drive much of this increase in demand, as manual cleaning products are commonly used in nearly all building types. Product development will also aid market growth. For example, microfiber cloths, which require minimal cleaning chemicals, will support strong sales of cleaning cloths. Other products expected to post above-average gains include wipes, wet mops and squeegees. New versions of these items offer better efficiency and reduced risk of crosscontamination compared to traditional products.

Institutional buildings to be fastest growing market

The institutional building market is projected to post the fastest growth of any market through 2015. Elevated interest in improving indoor air quality and minimizing cross-contamination risks, especially in hospitals and other health care settings, will drive demand gains, as janitorial products used in these buildings are replaced by newer versions. For example, mops with reusable microfiber heads reduce the chance of cross-contamination, and automated floor cleaning equipment with advanced filtration systems minimize airborne contaminants. The industrial building market will post the second fastest gains through 2015, driven by the increasing use of automated floor cleaning equipment in efforts to improve the health and safety of building occupants and improve worker efficiency.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $5.9 billion US janitorial equipment and supply industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., brushes and brooms, mops and dusters, vacuum cleaners, bags and containers), market (e.g., office buildings, institutional buildings, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, residential buildings) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry competitors, including Newell Rubbermaid, Nilfisk-Advance and Electrolux.
