Car Wash & Auto Detailing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Car Wash & Auto Detailing in Canada

Over the five years to 2019, operators in the Car Wash and Auto Detailing industry in Canada have rebounded from recessionary conditions. Rising Canadian per capita disposable income has fuelled demand for discretionary consumer services such as car washes. An increase in demand from other vital downstream markets has also boosted revenue for industry operators. Increasing pressure from rising water, electric and regulatory costs hindered profit margins in the industry. In response to federal, provincial and municipal laws regarding water disposal and rising fees for utilities such as water, car wash operators have increasingly installed water conservation and reclamation equipment during the period. Over the five years to 2024, an expanding Canadian economy will put more vehicles on the road, while consumers will have more cash on hand to spend on discretionary services such as car washes.

This industry cleans, washes and waxes automotive vehicles, such as passenger cars, trucks, vans and trailers. It also includes self-service car wash establishments.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
