The Car Wash and Detailing Services industry has gone through a period of growth over the past five years. Early in the period, water restrictions and consumers' environmental awareness regarding the effects of washing vehicles at home drove consumers to industry operators. Strong new car sales have also supported the industry's growth, as consumers with new cars are more likely to pay for expensive washing and detailing. Industry revenue is forecast to grow by a compound annual rate of 2.5% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $526.8 million.
Operators in the industry are primarily engaged in washing, waxing and detailing automotive vehicles, including passenger cars, trucks, vans and trailers. The industry excludes companies that predominantly provide automotive repair and maintenance services.
