The global contract cleaning services market size was valued at USD 292.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% from 2020 to 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.
The increasing awareness about hygiene and safety at the workplace has encouraged business organizations worldwide to hire third-party cleaning service providers.
Aditionally, our growing concerns about health and environmental impact are making companies choose green cleaning companies over traditional cleaning to ensure the good health of their employees and increasing productivity.
This will also increase demand for good quality cleaning products.
Floor and carpet cleaning holds the largest share
The floor and carpet cleaning segment accounted for more than 31% of the global revenue share in 2019. This is still the most sought-after service by both commercial and industrial users, because it's very time-consuming to clean large floor and carpet spaces in an office or manufacturing environment, and the cleaning companies that offer this service charge a higher fee than other services for the same reasons. Moreover, this is the one service that every single establishment needs without exception.
Upholstery cleaning services are being highly impacted by COVID-19
Furniture such as sofas, couches and padded chairs are a few examples of items that are in constant human contact. Thorough cleaning has always been important, but now it is more than ever. Any small stain can give the sensation of an uncleanly place, therefore, the upholstery cleaning services are anticipated to register the fastest growth over the forecast period.
50% of the global increase in cleaning services belongs to the commercial segment
Healthcare/medical facilities, educational institutions, hotels and restaurants, and retail outlets, are some types of establishments that prefer outsourcing the essential cleansing operations, increasing the demand of these services. These are establishments that already consider cleanliness a crucial factor to their operation, therefore we can expect them to increase the demand of even cleaner, constantly sanitized permises.
Corporate offices held the largest revenue share in the market in 2019
With the increase in the number of fatal diseases, individuals and businesses have become more conscious about the health of their employees and family members. If it was already a concern for most businesses in 2019, now with the global pandemic scenario we are living, this share is expected to grow even further as companies are more and more concerned of employee productivity and ensuring employee safety.
There has been an unprecedented increase in the demand for cleaning outsourcing services, as companies are trying to stay productive and care more about the employees that keep their businesses up and running. Moreover, there is a growing concern to ease in lockdown restrictions. Businesses naturally want to keep their work environment as clean as possible and at the same time to comply with mandatory guidelines enacted by their governments, and that has impacted the market demand positively. Due to the stringent mandates enacted, business organizations are actively working towards cleaning their premises at regular intervals to provide a safe workplace.
