Cleaning


The cleaning market in Russia is determined by the development of several federal districts, where cleaning services are more in demand. The largest share of the cleaning services market in 2015 belonged to the Central Federal District (Moscow) - 28%. This is followed by the North-West Federal District (Saint-Petersburg) - 24%. Privolzhsky Federal District (Nizhny Novgorod) closes the top three - 17%.

In 2017 the annual turnover of the cleaning industry in Russia amounted 360 billion rubles according to specialists of the National Association of Facility Operators (NAFO). Also in 2017, the process of "whitening" of the Russian cleaning industry began, which fact will entail an increase in the cost of cleaning services by 30-40% as for market participants opinion. In this connection, members of the council of the market for professional cleaning and technical maintenance of buildings discuss issues such as need not only to lower prices, but also to improve the quality of services, as well as to select honest contractors and distributors. Therefore, the

CleanExpo exhibition attracts additional exhibitors from companies from China and other foreign countries that supply energy-efficient and inexpensive equipment. For foreign companies the profit to enter the Russian market is that the industry is characterized by a low level of technical equipment. Local dry cleaners and laundries prefer to buy foreign-made equipment because of the poor quality of domestic contractors products, the poor quality of the steel used, and the short service life of the equipment.

 

Dry cleaning and laundry
According to analysts from the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Russian Association of Laundry and Dry Cleaning - the growth rate of the Russian cleaning and laundry industry will be within 15% -17% over the next few years. The most intensive growth is expected to be observed in large cities , including Moscow, St. Petersburg, as well as the largest Siberian city, Novosibirsk. The Moscow laundry market remains the largest, both in physical and value terms, and is estimated at 20,000-22,000 tons per year in volume terms.
