U.S. Market for Environmental Services Forecasted to GrowApril 4, 2022
The U.S. health care environmental services (EVS) market is projected to reach US$8.7 billion by 2026 from $6.6 billion in 2021, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during the forecast period, according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets.
The report, “US Healthcare Environmental Services Market By Type,” shows the janitorial/core-cleaning services segment of the market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR primarily due to the need for regular cleaning and keeping health facility premises clean to prevent the spread of infection among patients and staff.
Based on services type, the market is segmented into janitorial/core-cleaning services, infection control and prevention services, enhanced cleaning technology, front-of-house cleaning and brand experience, and other services. Based on facility type, the acute-care facilities segment accounted for the largest share of the market. The market is segmented into acute-care, post-acute care, and non-acute care facilities.
The growing adoption of various outsourced cleaning services has helped acute-care facilities reduce in-house administrative costs such as the buying and maintenance costs of various cleaning technologies and supplies. These are the major factors driving the growth of this segment.
