Demand Expected To Reach $6.4 Billion By 2009

December 9, 2005

U.S. demand for janitorial equipment and supplies (excluding chemical products) is forecast to rise 3.4% annual through 2009, reaching $6.4 billion, according to a new study from The Freedonia Group. The study reports that advances will be fueled by a continuing recovery in economic activity, which will loosen budgetary constraints for cleaning equipment. All product categories are expected to experience an upswing in growth, which will be supported by gains in the number of business establishments and nonresidential floor space, as well as the ongoing interest in indoor air quality and building maintenance standards. Several product segments, including wipes, are expected to post notable advances. More info: (440) 684-9600; E-mail: pr@freedoniagroup.com; Website: www.freedoniagroup.com.
