12 Biggest Commercial Janitorial Companies In USA

In this article, we discuss the 12 biggest commercial janitorial companies in USA. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these companies, go directly to the 5 Biggest Commercial Janitorial Companies In USA.

According to Statista, the janitorial services sector's market size will increase by 6.6 percent in 2022. The annualized percentage of this market's growth was 6.7% between 2017 and 2022. Additionally, between 2020 and 2021, the number of janitors and cleaners employed in the United States rose by nearly 50,000. By 2024, it is predicted that the U.S. janitorial services industry will generate around $50.1 billion in sales. The market size, measured by revenue, of the janitorial services industry is $97.6 billion in 2022. Businesses frequently grow when corporate profits increase, raising demand for janitorial services. However, dwindling corporate profit decreases demand for janitorial services as companies close facilities and cut back on the frequency of contracted cleaning to cut expenses. The industry may have an opportunity in 2022 as corporate profits are anticipated to rise, according to ibisworld. According to Allied Market Research, the cleaning services market is to reach $111.49 billion globally by 2030 at a 6.5% CAGR, as reported by Bloomberg.

The global cleaning services industry is expanding due to service providers expanding their online presence and rising commercial consumer demand. However, heightened rivalry and the introduction of new companies limit market expansion. On the other hand, the demand for construction and post-construction cleaning services will open up new prospects. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a favorable effect on the global cleaning services business. Deep cleaning and disinfection have become more popular among residential and commercial users to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. To reduce the risk of infection, the governments of various countries established a variety of standard operating procedures and guidelines for businesses. As a result, cleaning services were more in demand at malls and large businesses.
