Carpet Cleaning Services Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

Share Article

During the three years to 2014, carpet cleaning service prices are anticipated to trend upward, primarily due to the rising number of businesses operating in the United States; with per capita disposable income levels on the rise, demand for carpet cleaning services is expected to increase, leading prices to increase at a faster rate in the next three years. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the procurement of Carpet Cleaning Services in its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

Carpet cleaning service prices are anticipated to rise due to the increasing number of businesses in the United States

Carpet cleaning services have a buyer power score of 3.1 out of 5, which reflects a highly competitive market with high price volatility. According to IBISWorld analyst Deonta Smith, these factors have propelled the average price of services to increase at an estimated average rate of 2.4% per year in the three years to 2014. In the next three years to 2017, prices are forecast to accelerate at a faster rate as the number of businesses and per capita disposable income levels continue to climb and support demand for market services. As a result, buyers are encouraged to establish carpet cleaning contracts now.

The low market share concentration has fostered a highly competitive market. With more than 41,000 suppliers to choose from, including Chem-Dry Inc. and The ServiceMaster Company, buyers can easily shop around for a company that can best suit their budget and service needs, continues Smith. However, the low availability of substitutes has slightly hampered buyer power during the past three years. Buyers must also take total cost of ownership into consideration. For example, carpet that does not receive appropriate professional cleanings will deteriorate at a faster rate than carpet that does receive regular cleanings; consequently, buyers that neglect carpet maintenance can incur a higher total cost of ownership. To this end, buyers will be forced to remove and replace the carpet, which would result in considerable costs.

Although prices are forecast to increase during the three years to 2017, price volatility is anticipated to fall to a low level during the period. Low volatility indicates that buyers will not be subject to sudden price increases and can budget accordingly despite the steady rise in prices resulting from increasing demand.
