[197 Pages Report] The Commercial Laundry Machinery Market size was estimated at USD 6.69 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 7.23 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 8.30% to reach USD 11.70 billion by 2030.

Commercial laundry machines are designed for commercial use to easily accommodate big loads of laundry, serving the needs of hotels, care homes, and restaurant industries. Commercial laundry machinery has a capacity of 12 kg to 60 kg and beyond for faster wash rates, reduced energy and water bills, increased reliability, and intensive cleaning compared to domestic laundry equipment. The hospitality industry is increasingly adopting commercial laundry machinery for efficient cleaning operations. In recent years, the demand for multi-housing laundries and laundromats with improved energy and water efficiency has increased. However, the high costs, operational issues, and commercial laundry care equipment maintenance may limit the product adoption. Moreover, the introduction of innovative technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), is creating lucrative opportunities for market growth.

Type: Preference for fully automatic commercial laundry machines to save time and improve cleaning capabilities

Fully automatic machines offer better functionality and a wide range of program cycles and modes with a single compartment for washing and rinsing that is able to handle practically any type of clothing and provide better wash quality on a commercial level. Semi-automatic laundry machine requires manual input, including several steps following the final wash, containing two tubs for washing and drying the clothes respectively. Consumers need to physically transfer clothes from the washtub to the drying tub, which requires significant human labor and may discover high-capacity alternatives in the semi-automatic sector.

Product: Adoption of continuous batch washers and top loaders in high volume laundry establishments emphasizing on energy efficiency

Commercial dryers use electricity or gas to heat the tumblers to dry the clothes quickly by removing the moisture from the clothes after being washed. They are available in several varieties, including vented dryers that heat atmospheric air to dry the clothing while sucking out moisture, and condensed dryers collect the moisture at the bottom of the machine for later disposal. Different types and sizes of commercial laundry ironers are available in the marketplace as relatively large machines that require space for operation and service. Continuous batch washers are extensively designed with optimal hygienic standards with very low use of water and energy to handle heavy loads of laundry. These continuous batch washers have the ability to process significant numbers of clothes pieces a day during commercial laundry operations while minimizing the need for water, energy, and chemicals. The front loader machines offer more clean energy and water efficiency than top loader machines. Front loader machines have additional wash capabilities to meet a range of fabric types and filth levels with rapid spinning speeds, which remove more water from garments, resulting in shorter drying times. Washer extractors are available in primarily two types: soft mount and hard mount washer extractors. Soft-mount washer-extractors are built in a cradle containing springs and shock absorbers, while hard-mount washer-extractors are installed by bolting them directly into the floor and, thus, do not shake around when in operation.

Distribution Channel: Convenience and cost-effectiveness of procuring commercial laundry machinery through online channels

The offline sales channel for commercial laundry machinery allows customers to check the machines before purchase, reducing the danger of obtaining a duplicate product. Furthermore, offline sales are convenient since sales & dealers can provide a demo, and customers can interact face-to-face to clear their doubts. In contrast, online sales of commercial laundry machinery have remained the most opportunistic choice for customers, as these offer them the option to check reviews by previous customers. All variations of laundry machinery are presented on one page, with the prices, brands, and customer reviews on online platforms, helping simplify decision-making by reducing shopping time. Moreover, users discover better prices and discounts when purchasing laundry machines online and access more brands and outlets providing excellent offers to attract consumers

End-user: Need for robust and efficient laundry solutions to handle large volumes of linens, towels, and uniforms in the hospitality sector

Hospitals depend on commercial on-premise laundry to clean and sanitize their bed linens, and the need for high-quality, efficient laundry facilities in healthcare is important as people become more focused on hygiene standards. Healthcare facilities normally require big machines to wash oversized items such as bedsheets, linens, and towels. Many manufacturers offer commercial washing machines and dryers with up to 135-pound capacity for the healthcare industry. The hospitality sector uses commercial laundry machines to wash their high quantity of bedsheets, towels, and linens. The hospitality sector adopts advanced commercial laundry machines as they help to decrease water, gas, and electricity usage. For hotels, effective laundry equipment manufacturers invest in premium laundry solutions that bring laundry in-house rather than relying on external laundry service providers. Additionally, commercial laundry machines are available in various applications of laundry stores or laundromats, which provide enzyme/denim washing, garment washing, and milling machines for cotton and woolen sweaters for efficiency in washing operations.
