The Car Wash and Auto Detailing industry was wrecked by the recession as industry operators were adversely affected by decreased per capita disposable income and rising oil prices. Though industry operators experienced recessionary declines, overall revenue grew marginally over the five years to 2014. This upward trend is expected to continue between 2014 and 2019, bolstered by rising per capita disposable income and increasing environmental awareness of water usage.
