Dry Cleaners in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Dry Cleaners in Canada

The Dry Cleaners industry in Canada provides dry cleaning and laundry services to consumers and businesses, such as hotels and clinics. Over the past decade, shifting consumer trends toward casual clothing reduced the need for dry cleaning services that are typically only used for formal and office wear. Moreover, the convenience of dry cleaning alternatives and advanced at-home laundering machines buoyed demand for industry services. The proliferation of casual office attire continues to reduce demand for dry cleaning services. Dry cleaning is a price-premium service, and consumers typically only dry clean formal attire that cannot be laundered at home. Dry cleaners have implemented price hikes over the five years to 2018 to maintain profitability amid falling demand. Based on data from Statistics Canada, the consumer price index for dry cleaning services is expected to increase considerably during the period.

This industry provides dry cleaning and laundering services. Companies may also provide drop-off and pick-up sites for laundries and dry cleaners. In addition, establishments may also offer specialty-cleaning services for garments and textiles, including fur, leather, suede, wedding gowns, draperies and pillows. This industry does not include establishments that offer coin-operated laundering and dry cleaning, or those offering linen and uniform rentals.

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.
