20-Jul-2012 | General Article (Non-News)

HTML clipboardThis Marketdata study examines the huge $78 billion commercial contract cleaning and maintenance services market. The business, which encompasses janitorial services, pest control, window cleaning, carpet/floor cleaning, parking lot maintenance, security, HVAC/facilities management and more, is very competitive, comprised of 906,000 mainly small operators, including 48,400 franchised outlets. Competitors run the gamut from mom & pop cleaners, to giants such as ABM Industries with $2.4 billion in revenues and UGL UNICCO with $852 million in commercial maintenance sales. This study traces industry size, growth, segments, structure, end-user demand, and operating ratios — Receipts for 1987-2010 actual, 2011-2012 estimates, and 2016 forecasts.
 Steady sales gains of 5-7% per year, and 10% in 2007 came to a halt in 2009 with the recession, real estate bust, rising office building vacancy rates, and cutbacks in the frequency of cleaning by clients. Some customers even shifted to in-house cleaning. Low-ball prices, discounts and rebates have become the norm, hurting profits. Green cleaning and certification has become more important.
 This is a complete analysis of: competitor market share, major industry trends, industry franchising, office and industrial building vacancy rates, impact of the recession, cleaning worker pay/turnover, outsourcing, more. Includes highlights of latest surveys by trade journals, as well as comments and outlooks by top competitors, trade groups and industry consultants. Separate in-depth chapters analyze the Carpet Cleaning and Residential/Maid Services segments. National, state and city ratios from Census Bureau surveys. Includes in-depth profiles and rankings of all the top franchise and non-franchise competitors (ABM Industries, Anago, Bonus Building Care, ServiceMaster, Jani-King, Jan-Pro, Clean Net, Coverall, Pritchard Industries, Red Coats, Vanguard, UGL Unicco.)
