Segment Analysis

The laundromats industry includes companies offering on-premise coin or card-operated washers and dryers, as well as companies operating self-service laundry and dry-cleaning equipment in apartments, dormitories, and similar locations.

Per Capita Disposable Income
Per capita disposable income is inversely related to demand for laundromats.  As per capita disposable income increases, more expensive laundry alternatives become available to consumers.

Rental Vacancy Rates
This industry primarily targets renters, since they typically use coin-operated washers and dryers provided by landlords or frequent local laundromats. Therefore, when rental vacancy rates increase, the industry is negatively affected.

Number of College Students
Colleges and universities account for a prominent share of demand for industry services.  This is because the industry provides colleges and universities with coin- or card-operated washers and dryers.  Therefore, when enrollment increases, more students purchase laundry services.

This segment shows growth through 2022.
