Janitorial Equipment Supply Wholesaling in the US
Over the five years to 2018, the industry is expected to exhibit a modest expansion. Bolstered by favorable consumer conditions and increasing corporate profit, rising demand from downstream markets during the current period has helped support industry revenue growth. While the industry's diverse range of products keeps revenue volatility relatively low, profit margins have been somewhat constrained as a result of rising external competition. Over the next five years to 2023, a growing and aging US population will support strong growth in the service sector. Unfortunately for industry operators, an increasing number of clients will continue to bypass wholesalers in this industry. Consequently, while continuing its upward trajectory, industry growth is expected to decelerate relative to the current period.
Operators sell specialized equipment and supplies used by service establishments (except supplies used in offices, stores, hotels, restaurants, schools and health, medical and photographic facilities). Janitorial supplies include carpet-and floor-cleaning equipment, carpet sweepers, vacuuming systems, floor-sanding equipment and mop wringers. The industry also includes beauty parlor and barbershop products and laundry and dry-cleaning products and equipment.
