The Commercial Laundries industry has performed well over the past five years, as many businesses have sought to outsource their laundry and linen supply operations. This is part of a general trend towards outsourcing services to more efficient operators. Downstream markets have required more-frequent laundering services, generating increased demand for the industry. As a result, industry revenue is estimated to grow by an annualised 2.6% over the five years through 2015-16, to reach $1.2 billion. Continued steady growth of 2.7% is forecast for 2015-16.
Industry operators are engaged in providing linen and other laundering services to commercial operators such as hotels, hospitals and aged-care facilities. Linen rental services are provided by some companies in the industry as part of the complete laundering process.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
