Understanding the needs of professional end users, such as commercial laundry processors, hospitals, lodging establishments, restaurants, extended care facilities, prisons/jails, and other on-premise laundries, are key for laundry chemical suppliers. Trends in product usage, channels of distribution, penetration of textile rental firms, the role of machinery/equipment, such as extractors, continuous batch washers or tunnels, and dispensing systems, and cost structures for processing laundry are key variables that have a direct impact on the demand for laundry chemicals.
As part of Kline’s commitment to the industrial and institutional cleaning industry, we are currently conducting research with hundreds of professional laundry end users to understand how these important trends impact their businesses and what the related impacts are on laundry chemical demand. In addition to these end user surveys, Kline’s professional staff is also in the process of conducting in-depth interviews with suppliers and distributors in the industry to understand the trends from the supply side. The report, due to be published this summer, will provide subscribers with a complete analysis of the +$1 billion market. For more information, view brochure or contact us.
