Janitorial Services in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Janitorial Services in Canada

The Janitorial Services industry in Canada is expected to experience moderate growth over the five years to 2018. Inelastic demand for industry services ensured that year-over-year fluctuations in demand were low. Low revenue volatility, combined with an increase in the number of businesses and people, increased urbanization and increased wealth, is expected to continue to propel the industry forward. The Canadian economy experienced significant headwinds in 2016, as the collapse of the world price of crude oil and other commodities slowed commercial and residential development across Canada, especially in western provinces such as Alberta. This, in turn, is expected to depress demand for nonresidential janitorial services, as lower investment in building construction, repair and remodelling diminishes the need for upkeep services such as cleaning. Over the five years to 2023, new business growth and a projected rise in the value of nonresidential construction will likely broaden operators' potential customer base and increase the floor space available for cleaning.

Industry operators clean windows and the interior spaces of buildings and transportation equipment. Common industry activities include cleaning residential buildings, offices, retail complexes, industrial buildings, healthcare facilities, educational facilities, government buildings and commercial aircraft.

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.
