COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Every industry in the world was shut down during the pandemic in order to stop the spread of infections. The online laundry service market was therefore not an exception to this. Most of the laundry services orders arose from the residential sector. But since consumers around the world stayed confined to their houses, not much work was generated. Because consumers were more concerned about their health and cleanliness at the time, this caused the sector to slow down. Additionally, hotels stayed closed for a while, which had a detrimental effect on the market’s expansion. Therefore, depending on the clientele, COVID-19 had varying effects on laundry services. Closures of businesses and a move toward working from home most certainly had a negative impact on businesses. Furthermore, there are limitations and guidelines set by the government for internet services.
Market Driving Factors
Growing Popularity Of Smart Phones And High Internet Penetration
The use of online applications like online laundry services has expanded as a result of smartphones’ rising popularity and high internet penetration across the world. One of the main factors influencing the market’s growth is the variety of services offered by online laundry services, like the free pick-up and drop-off options. The decision to have the clothing delivered right to the customer’s door saves both time and money. As a result, using online laundry services is a time- and money-saving option for customers. Therefore, the online laundry services market is being driven by rising technical awareness and internet penetration.
Increasing Public Awareness Of Green Laundry Detergents And New Business Models
The marketplace and on-site business methods are two prominent business layouts. Startups lacking their personal equipment can also use the market. Through a platform, users may connect to different washing providers. The transaction processing is done by the marketplace provider. In order to plan distribution to network-affiliated laundries, this operator compiles data regarding users’ interests and locations. Online laundry service owners have a great potential to expand their companies. As more and more online services open up, they will propel the growth and interest of customers in the online laundry services market.
Market Restraining Factors
High Costs And Cumbersome Rules & Requirements
Strict regulations, environmental protection standards, and a lack of experience running modernized online washing services also minimize growth opportunities. Concerned bodies highlight the excessive use of water use in laundry services, as not many operators use any recycling processes. In addition, the used detergent mixed water is laden with harmful chemicals and compounds, like bleaches, synthetic fragrances, dyes, SLS/SLES which if not discharged carefully, could have detrimental effects on the surroundings. This lowers the credibility of online laundry services market to an environmental draining business.

The dry clean segment procured a significant revenue share in the online laundry services market in 2021. Fashionable clothing and accessories that cannot be laundered at home are used to create modern clothing and outfits. Some sophisticated fabrics like silk also require dry cleaning services as mishandling them instantly damages the piece irretrievably. This can hasten market expansion.

The residential segment acquired the largest revenue share in the online laundry service market in 2021. Online washing services have been made possible by a shift in consumer preference toward professional cleaning due to growing health concerns around personal hygiene and cleanliness. In addition, businesses are starting up in the sector to investigate the unorganized sector.
Based on region, the online laundry services market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA. The North American region recorded the maximum revenue share in the online laundry service market in 2021.
