Cleaning & Maintenance Supplies Distributors - Industry Market Research Report

Cleaning & Maintenance Supplies Distributors

Similar to other distribution industries, demand for cleaning and maintenance supplies distribution has improved somewhat over the past five years. As the economy recovered, demand from end-users, such as industrial and commercial companies, has improved. Furthermore, as consumers increased purchases in light of better budgets, this has increased demand from downstream users. Nevertheless, revenue declines during the early half of the five-year period, resulting from still-shaky disposable income, coupled with increasing competition, has dragged down overall revenue growth. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is expected to increase. Healthcare centers will increasingly demand cleaning and maintenance supplies due to strict government regulation regarding cleanliness in healthcare industries. Additionally, demand from local governments and educational institutions will rise over the next five years as their budgets grow.

This industry distributes specialized equipment and supplies for cleaning and maintenance services on a merchant wholesale basis. Products include janitorial and chemical cleaning solutions, waste receptacles and facility maintenance.

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.
