US demand for janitorial equipment and supplies is forecast to grow 2.2 percent per year through 2019 to $7.1 billion, continuing the recovery that began in the latter part of the 2009-2014 period. Significant pent-up demand in automated floor cleaning equipment will fortify advances. After initially falling in 2008 and 2009, sales of most types of automated floor cleaning equipment remained below pre-recession highs as of 2014, but will again approach or exceed those levels by 2019.
Gains will be spurred by accelerating economic growth, which will increase foot traffic and a need for additional cleaning in buildings, as well as factors such as a rising number of business establishments and gains in nonresidential floor space that boost the potential market for janitorial products. Increased demand for nonessential cleaning activity and related products will also promote advances. Heightened interest in sustainable cleaning practices will buoy demand for higher value products that decrease or eliminate water or chemical consumption.
Sales will be further fueled by growing interest in replacing older, noisy equipment with quieter, more discreet products appropriate for noise-sensitive environments. In addition, concerns about the risk of cross-contamination and employee injury will drive sales of products with advanced features and improved ergonomic design. More rapid gains will be restrained by market maturity in manual cleaning products and bags and containers, as well as by competition from lower-cost imports.
