Presssure Washer Market : Segmentation

This research report includes a detailed segmentation by output, power source, operation end-users, and geography. The 0?1500 PSI segment accounted for a market share of over 12% in 2019. A majority of battery-operated and electric corded pressure washers fall under the 0?1500 PSI category. They are highly portable, lightweight, and produce less noise. The segment is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing mainly owing to the increasing demand for battery-powered machines and the growing demand for electric pressure washers for domestic applications.

The 1500?3000 PSI segment accounts for the highest market share owing to the widespread application of these models in both residential and commercial sectors. This segment constitutes both electric and gas ones. They are used for heavy-duty residential cleaning purposes such as concrete, sidewalks, walls, and other hard surfaces.

Electric-powered equipment dominates the market as they are highly affordable and powerful machines that are used by several residential, industrial, and commercial end-users. They are more popular than gas and battery-powered ones. Europe was the largest market for electric models in 2019, followed by North America. Factors such as cost-effectiveness, low maintenance, and convenience are increasing the adoption of electric-powered machines.
Gas-powered equipment are more powerful than electric ones. They are primarily used for heavy-duty cleaning purposes such as cleaning decks, siding, and other large areas. These machines can easily clean tough stains, paints, and dirt. While these machines are cordless, which increase their maneuverability and portability, they require high maintenance, which increases the overall machine expenditure. Another downside of the product is high noise emission, which is likely to hinder their growth.

In terms of revenue, hot-water pressure washers dominate the market and are expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. These machines are generally used in industrial and commercial cleaning applications. Hot-water machines are highly effective in removing oil and grease efficiently. Their demand is expected to grow as they reduce the use of detergents, thereby making them environment friendly. They are widely used in the food processing industry to kill harmful bacteria and maintain rigorous health and safety standards.

Pressure washers are multifunctional equipment with diverse usage in residential, commercial, and contract cleaning industries. They are used for cleaning garden tools, fence, lawn, and sidewalks accounts for the majority share of the market, followed by the vehicles cleaning segment. Owing to the high affordability, portability, and ease of use, these devices are being increasingly adopted in domestic cleaning activities. The demand for residential cleaning equipment is mainly growing due to the increasing number of households, an aging population, and a higher number of dual-income households.
