U.S. demand for janitorial supplies expected to grow
MILL VALLEY, CA — The demand for janitorial equipment and supplies in the U.S. is forecast to increase 1.7 percent per year through 2017 to $7.2 billion, according to a press release.
Sales of many of these products declined from 2007 to 2009 due to the recession and its subsequent effect on business activity levels, the release stated.
According to the release, many businesses began purchasing new equipment between 2010 and 2012 as the economy improved, helping sales of most products return to pre-recession levels.
Through 2017, sales of janitorial equipment and supplies will be driven by continuing economic recovery and the corresponding return to higher levels of demand for cleaning activity, the release noted.
