Car wash industry Size And Key Trends In Terms Of Volume And Value

  • Majority of consumers, presently, prefer to wash their vehicles by hiring professional car wash services rather than cleaning them at home, owing to time constraints and a busy work life. Car washing services clean not only the exterior but also the interior of the vehicle, which is rather hard to clean at home. These services enable easy washing and cleaning of the vehicles. Expansion of the car washing service market is attributed to an increase in focus of consumers on vehicle maintenance and rise in spending power.

Key Drivers of Car Washing Service Market

  • Increase in environmental awareness coupled with stringent government regulations regarding usage and/or wastage of water among the population is driving the car wash services market. Car washing services ensure optimal use of water resources, recycling of used water, and proper dumping of solid waste through waste management systems ensure safety of the environment. This, in turn, saves water, reduces groundwater pollution, and also retains the car’s paint and finish.
  • The trend toward car washing services is increasing significantly attributed to benefits offered by the services including fast and timely cleaning, convenience, and efficiency offered by professional car wash operators. Moreover, a rise in disposable income of the consumer in certain countries across the globe including Germany, the U.K., the U.S., China, Japan, and India is anticipated to boost the global car wash services market.
  • For instance, according to a survey conducted by International Carwash Association (ICA), over the past decade, there has been a decline in home car washes. In the U.S., the percentage of drivers that report most frequently washing their vehicle at a professional car wash has increased from approximately 48% in 1994 to more than 77% in 2019.
  • Dirt, grime, water droplets, and harsh chemicals that accumulate on a vehicle over time can cause the metal to corrode. These deposits are hard to remove by merely cleaning with water and sponge or brush. Household cleaning products may scratch the surface of the vehicle, which might further damage the exterior of the vehicle. This, in turn, prompts consumers to prefer professional car wash services.
