Industrial Laundry & Linen Supply in Canada

The Industrial Laundry and Linen Supply industry in Canada, which supplies linen, uniforms and dust-control items to food services, hospitality and manufacturing operators, has experienced growth over the five years to 2018. Over the past five years, industry revenue growth has been sustained primarily by declining unemployment and rising demand from the healthcare, food services and manufacturing sectors. The average profit margin in the Canadian Industrial Laundry and Linen Supply industry is expected to decrease. This decline is the result of higher competition and rising regulatory requirements. However, rising employment in the service and manufacturing sectors for most of the period has stabilized profit declines. Over the five years to 2023, the industry will be bolstered by improvements in key drivers, such as employment, disposable income and consumer spending.

Operators in this industry supply laundered items, such as uniforms, gowns and coats, table linens, bed linens, towels, diapers, clean room apparel and treated mops to various other industries. These items are provided on a rental or contract basis. Typical clients include industrial plants, healthcare, food service and hospitality 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.
