Machine wash only: Shifts in consumer preferences and rising competition cause revenue to stagnate


Dry Cleaners in the US

Falling demand for dry cleaning services, unfavorable shifts in consumer preferences and increasing competition from coin-operated laundromats and household washing machines have led to the Dry Cleaners industry's decline in the past decade. In the early part of the five-year period to 2015, poor economic conditions led many consumers to reduce spending on discretionary laundry services. Moreover, a long-term consumer shift toward low-maintenance clothing has curtailed demand for dry cleaning services that were once necessary for many garments. As a result, industry revenue has decreased slightly over the past five years and is expected to accelerate its decline through 2021.

Establishments in this industry provide dry cleaning and laundering services. Companies may also provide drop-off and pick-up sites for customers. In addition, establishments may also offer specialty cleaning services for garments and textiles such as fur, leather, suede, wedding gowns, draperies and pillows. This industry does not include coin-operated laundromats, nor does it include companies that generate most of their revenue from linen and uniform rentals.

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.
