Janitorial Equipment & Supplies

Janitorial Equipment & Supplies

Growth in the US janitorial equipment & supplies market will average 2.2 percent annually through 2019, reaching $7.1 billion. Advances will be fueled by accelerating economic growth, which will increase foot traffic in buildings and boost daily cleaning requirements, as well as by concerns about cross-contamination, noise pollution, sustainability, and environmental friendliness.

This report segments the US janitorial equipment & supplies industry by product and market. Data is provided in million US dollars.

Janitorial equipment & supplies covered include:
Manual cleaning products
Bags and containers
Automated floor cleaning equipment
Other janitorial supplies and accessories

Manual cleaning products will remain the largest of these through 2019, when they will account for 32 percent of the market total. Automated floor cleaning equipment will register the fastest growth, driven by pent-up demand after a drop in demand in 2008 and 2009 and a subsequent extended period of poor sales performance.

Major US janitorial equipment & supply markets include:
Office buildings
Institutional buildings
Commercial building
Industrial buildings
Residential buildings

Office and institutional buildings were the two largest markets in 2014, together accounting for 61 percent of demand. These two markets will also register the fastest gains through 2019, fueled by more stringent sanitation standards, growth in the number of healthcare institutions, and a trend toward daytime cleaning, which will boost sales of quieter and more discrete tools.

The US janitorial equipment & supplies industry includes more than 1,000 companies, the majority of which are small or mid-sized, privately held firms with limited production lines. This study includes sales data for industry participants such as Alfred Kärcher, Electrolux, Heritage Bag, Inteplast, Newell Rubbermaid, Nilfisk (NKT Holding), Shop-Vac, Techtronic Industries, Tennant, and 3M. In addition, the industry has seen a number of notable acquisitions and divestitures in recent years.
