Laundromats in the US

The Laundromats industry includes companies that offer on-premises coin- or card-operated washers and dryers, as well as companies that operate self-service laundry and dry-cleaning equipment in apartments, dormitories and similar locations. Increased disposable income has led to increased competition from both household laundry machines and dropoff and pickup laundry and dry cleaning services. Over the next five years, industry revenue is expected to decline as more consumers purchase personal laundry appliances. This decrease will be compounded by rising rental vacancy rates, as more individuals purchase homes amid the housing market's recovery, thereby obtaining sufficient space for a washer and dryer. Additionally, rising disposable income and falling unemployment will spur rising demand for more expensive alternatives, such as wash-and-fold services at dry cleaners.

Companies in this industry primarily manage facilities with coin-operated or similar laundry and dry-cleaning equipment for customer use on the premises. Industry operators also supply and service coin-operated, smart card or similar self-service laundry and dry-cleaning equipment for customer use in other places of businesses, such as apartments and dormitories.

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.
