Dry Cleaners in the US
Falling demand for dry cleaning services, unfavorable shifts in consumer preferences and increasing competition from coin-operated laundromats and household washing machines have led to the Dry Cleaners industry's decline in the past decade. In the early part of the five-year period to 2015, poor economic conditions led many consumers to reduce spending on discretionary laundry services. Moreover, a long-term consumer shift toward low-maintenance clothing has curtailed demand for dry cleaning services that were once necessary for many garments. As a result, industry revenue has decreased slightly over the past five years and is expected to accelerate its decline through 2020.
Establishments in this industry provide dry cleaning and laundering services. Companies may also provide drop-off and pick-up sites for customers. In addition, establishments may also offer specialty cleaning services for garments and textiles such as fur, leather, suede, wedding gowns, draperies and pillows. This industry does not include coin-operated laundromats, nor does it include companies that generate most of their revenue from linen and uniform rentals.
