Report Shows Self-Service Laundry Industry Growing

The most recent quarterly report from ITR Economics indicates an accelerated growth phase for the self-service laundry industry.

From Planet Laundry:

“The ITR Quarterly Economic Report examines conditions of the general economy, as well as offering a specific analysis of the laundry and dry cleaning industry in the U.S. It provides an update as to where the self-service laundry industry is within the current business cycle and how that relates to the overall U.S. economy. What’s more, the report includes management objectives specific to the self-service laundry industry.”

Some of the key data highlights and forecasting included:

  • There is a significant growth in multi-unit housing starts, expected to accelerate in 2017, which will then lead to higher demand for multi-housing laundry facilities.
  • Consumer expectations have decreased, indicating lower confidence in the economy, but still with a willingness to spend.
  • Personal consumption expenditures have risen 3.4 percent, which suggests that consumers have money to spend and will continue to support laundry vendors.
