Industrial Laundry & Linen Supply in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Industrial Laundry & Linen Supply in the US

The Industrial Laundry and Linen Supply industry comprises operators that rent out and launder a variety of linens, garments and work uniforms to the general manufacturing, retail and hospitality sectors, all of which have performed well over the past five years. During the five-year period, the declining unemployment rate has renewed demand for industry services. Since rental uniforms are purchased primarily by blue-collar workers in industries with high employee turnover, industry performance is closely linked to the labor market. Over the past five years, the unemployment rate has declined considerably. Driven by similar economic factors and trends, the industry is expected to continue growing over the next five years, although at a slower rate than the current period. This growth will be driven primarily by the four largest uniform rental companies, all of which have grown faster than the overall industry over the past five years.

Companies in this industry supply laundered items, such as uniforms, gowns, coats, table linens, bed linens, towels, cleanroom apparel and treated mops to other various industries. These items are provided on a rental or contract basis. Typical clients include industrial, 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.
