Janitorial Equipment & Supplies

Value gains will be supported by a growing focus on higher value products that are more environmentally friendly and use less water and cleaning solution, as well as on ergonomic products.

US demand to rise 1.7% annually through 2017

US demand for janitorial equipment and supplies (excluding chemical products) is forecast to advance 1.7 percent per year through 2017 to $7.2 billion. Although not rapid growth, this rate will be an improvement from the more sluggish gains of the 2007-2012 period. Increases will be driven by continuing economic recovery and the corresponding return to more frequent demand for nonessential cleaning activity, as well as expansion in the number of nonresidential establishments and amount of floor space. Growing focus on sustainable practices and environmentally friendly products will drive demand for higher value products that use less water and cleaning solution than comparable products. Ergonomic products will continue to support value growth as well. However, overall gains will be limited to an extent by the reluctance of some companies to reintroduce cleaning and maintenance costs that they cut during the recession.

Manual cleaning products to grow the fastest

Manual cleaning products are forecast to experience some of the fastest growth through 2017, attributable to a more delayed recovery from the effects of the recession, as well as ongoing product development. For instance, sales of products such as wipes, cloths, and flat and wet mops will benefit from the continuing adoption of higher value microfiber, which requires minimal use of chemicals and lasts longer than standard products. Sales of multipurpose automated floor cleaning machines will benefit from renewed demand for automated floor cleaning machines, as businesses that delayed replacing or upgrading machinery during the recession will be attracted to the possibility of replacing two or more machines with a single multipurpose product.

Institutional buildings to be fastest growing market

Among markets, institutional buildings will post the fastest gains through 2017. This market will see the most rapid growth in floor space due to an increase in the number of health care and related establishments. In addition, these locations have a particular interest in higher value products that can reduce the risk of cross-contamination and maintain indoor air quality, such as disposable microfiber flat mops, no-touch cleaning equipment, and automated cleaning products with advanced particle filtration features. The residential market will also see above average gains as homeowners return to more frequent use of contract cleaners who employ these commercial grade products.
