The global industrial laundry machine market size was valued at USD 2.61 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow from USD 2.68 billion in 2023 to USD 3.86 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period.

Laundry machines are designed and manufactured to clean heavy amounts of clothes and fabric with minimal time and optimal operational resources. The machines offer varied services to end users such as dry-cleaning & laundry services on a rental or contract basis. Industrial washer, industrial dryer, industrial cleaner, and industrial extractor are some of the equipment for laundry applications. In addition, the rising continual usage of work wear, clean linen, and uniforms in large industry domains such as hospital industry, healthcare, food and beverage, automotive, and other (marine) created a need for effective laundry machines in the market.

Due to the growing daily cloth cleaning and drying activities, consumers seek features such as proper tracking, process automation, and information management in industrial laundries. RFID tags and robotics are some technological advancements in laundry machines, which are surging the demand for laundry equipment in the market. However, electricity prices and the decline of resources such as water and treatment chemicals are restraining market growth. Trends and developments in the laundry sector enable cost reduction with minimal consumer environmental pollution, which enforces manufacturers to launch technological advanced industrial laundry systems are the key factors driving the market growth. For example, Kannegiesser, a leading laundry manufacturer, provides distinct and high-processing innovations such as washer extractor technology having advanced measuring and sensing technology. Such washing and hygiene managing features are trends in the market that offer long-term reliability. Furthermore, a steady shift of consumers toward tourism surges the demand for dry cleaning and laundry services in the market.


COVID-19 Pandemic Resulted in the Partial or Complete Closure of Manufacturing Activities 

COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the business of washing machines manufacturers. Moreover, rising electricity tariffs and more operational costs are factors which restrain the growth of the market. Additionally, supply chain disruption and halted manufacturing activities directly impacted the sales of manufacturers, which is restraining for the growth of the market. For instance, the net sales of Girbau dropped by around -38.0% in fiscal year 2020 as compared to fiscal year 2019.

However, consumer rising potential savings during the pandemic changed the market shift toward traveling & tourism to hoist demand for laundry equipment in post-pandemic. Thus, factors such as hygiene and cleaning are the prime market motivators that raise the demand for commercial laundry solutions and will significantly grow in the forecast period.

Automation Growth and Smart IoT Capabilities to Boost the Market Growth

Laundry operations are never a choice for anyone and time-bound work culture is an additional factor helping the growth of smart laundry solutions in the market. Consumers need more reliable, smart, and efficient laundry solutions that can solve hectic laundry operations with minimal guidance. Smart capabilities such as IoT and smart monitoring of the wash cycle are the features that dominate the market growth. For example, Danube International, a leading laundry solution provider in the residential and industrial segment, offers an IoT feature that actively contributes to the optimization and efficiency of machines. Moreover, Business Intelligence (BI) techniques and data-driven approaches to solve laundry business solutions and monitor the key performance indicator of the machines are dominating the market. All the above mentioned factors are boosting the Industrial Laundry Machine Market growth during the forecast period.


Technological Advancements Across Laundry Services to Trigger Market Growth

Post-pandemic, consumers experienced the rising use of chemicals, detergents, or other essential resources in each wash cycle. Furthermore, many players in the laundry equipment manufacturing business also realize the concerns for such shortfalls. Hence, they are developing more smart laundry machines and tunnel washers that can work with minimum and fewer resources such as water, detergent, and chemicals to lessen the cost of operation. For example, Girbau industrial, a major laundry equipment manufacturer, provides TBS-50, a continuous batch tunnel washer that aims to solve end users rising labor and utility costs with minimum operation resources. Additionally, features such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) are new integration that enhances capabilities such as ease of interaction and command and also improves the customer experience. As per our analysis, such features in the market are enhancing the adoption of laundry machines and driving the sales of industrial laundry for the manufacturers in the market.


Higher Investment, Growing Maintenance Costs, and Shortage of Resources to Obstruct Market Growth

Potential factors such as high initial expenditure and maintenance costs restrain end-users from shifting toward effective and efficient commercial laundry solutions. Consumers demand lower operational and maintenance costs, while current electricity tariffs and high labor wages have negatively impacted the operational cost of industries. The end-users are more concerned about the current raised cost of resources and significantly raising the cost of operation. Typically, the prices of industrial washer and dryer are ranging from USD 1000 to USD 3,500 for each machine. Also, on an average, around USD 150,000 to USD 400,000 are required for establishing a laundry business. Such a huge investment consists of the cost of maintenance, installation cost, and electricity prices, which is not bearable for small players, thereby restraining the growth of the laundry systems market. Moreover, the shortening of resources such as water, chemical, and detergents for treatment purposes is further putting a load on the consumer. Thus, solution providers have to work for more energy-efficient and impactful machines that can operate with minimal resources, which restraints the growth of the market.
