During the COVID-19 outbreak, every industry across the world remains closed to control the spread of coronavirus infections. Hence, the online laundry services industry is no exception to this. Customers across the globe remain closed inside their homes, and most of the laundry clothes come from residential sectors which have noticed a fall as customers were more concerned about their health & hygiene during those days. Which has resulted in a decline in the overall growth of the market. Moreover, hotels & parlor also remained closed for a certain time period, which has caused a negative impact on the market growth.

Laundry is a time-taking task and has become a problem for people, especially the working population. The working-class population has significantly increased over the last few years, thereby contributing to the rising demand for online laundry services due to their convenience. Time constraints due to increasing work pressure & hours restrict people from doing their laundry. The online laundry services market is mainly driven by the increasing number of working women worldwide.

Clean and fresh laundry is an important part of making a hygienic and healthy lifestyle. Cleaning dirty and used clothes and other laundry items daily requires a huge amount of clean water, washing appliances, detergents & soaps, and a proper washing area. For instance, according to the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) WaterSense label, laundry product or service uses 20% less water as compared to the average prototype, which is expected to be a key factor driving the market.

The hospitality sector is also opting for online laundry services to maintain hygiene in rooms. Hotels, as part of their service improvement process, are adopting online laundry services for better laundry management & hygiene. Online service providers offer laundry services for all types of linens, including room linen, food & beverage linen, staff uniform, and other miscellaneous items. In addition to washing and dry cleaning, they offer ironing, folding, and delivery of all linen products. These extended services are attracting more customers from the hotel industry.

Growing consumer consciousness toward a hygienic & healthy lifestyle has led to a high demand for laundry services. Online laundry service providers offer doorstep services and use high-quality laundry care products to clean delicate fabrics and extend the life of fabrics while maintaining hygiene. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of skin diseases, including rashes and allergies, is likely to create significant growth opportunities for laundry service providers during the forecast period.
