DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 20, 2019--

The “Dry-Cleaning And Laundry Services Global Market Opportunities And Strategies To 2022” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report describes and evaluates the global dry-cleaning and laundry services market. It covers two five-year periods, 2014 to 2018, termed the historic period, and 2018 through 2022, the forecast period.

The global dry-cleaning and laundry services market size reached a value of nearly $118.9 billion in 2018, having grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% since 2014, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% to nearly $180 billion by 2022.

Growth in the historic period resulted from strong economic growth in emerging markets, rapid urbanization, a rise in the number of single person households, and growth in the healthcare services sector.

Going forward, growth in the hospitality sector, increasing internet penetration, rising franchising opportunity, faster economic growth, busy lifestyles of people and technological advances in the laundry industry will drive growth. Factors that could hinder the growth of the dry-cleaning and laundry services market in the future include changing clothing trends, rising minimum wages, shortages of skilled human resources, low penetration of organized laundry services in developing economies, and changing industry regulations.
