The global pressure washer market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during 2020-2026.

Commercial and industrial sectors are witnessing an increased adoption of consumer pressure washers. The trend of outsourcing cleaning services has been growing rapidly in the residential sector.

A growing number of dual-income households, rising disposable income levels, and an aging population drive professional cleaning services.

Global Pressure Washer Market Segmentation

The global pressure washer market research report includes a detailed segmentation by power source, operation, output, end-user, geography. In 2020, electric-powered technology dominated the global market with a share of over 54%.

Electric-powered devices are highly affordable powerful machines that are used in several industrial and commercial sectors. They are also finding applications in the residential sector.

While the future of pressure washers is oriented towards battery-powered models, the demand for gas variants is expected to decline during the forecast period, where sustainability and eco-friendliness are also significant points of concern. Battery-powered machines are rapidly being adopted in the residential segment. These machines can be compared to electric machines in terms of power, but they have a limited runtime.

Thus, battery-powered machines are not a feasible option in several commercial and industrial applications. Therefore, the penetration remains limited. The high price of the machine is also contributing to its significant share in the market revenue.


The global pressure washer market is dominated by vendors that have a global presence. Many global players are expected to expand their reach worldwide during 2020-2026, especially in the fast-developing countries of the APAC region and Latin America, to enhance their market share.

In 2016, Alfred Karcher acquired Australia-based Sweepex, which provides cleaning services across industries and government institutions. Nilfisk extended its presence in the Australian market by acquiring Kerrick, a heavy-duty, commercial, and industrial cleaning equipment provider.

Nilfisk has also acquired China-based Viper Group to gain a leading position in the rapidly growing Chinese market. The combined Nilfisk-Viper entity now has a presence in over 36 countries across the globe. The market is likely to witness increased market consolidation due to the intensely competitive landscape. Vendors need to distinguish their products and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition to survive the highly competitive environment.
