Dublin, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Car Wash Services Market Size, Share and Trend Analysis Report by Type (Tunnels, Roll-over/In-Bay), by method of payment (cash, cashless), by The report “Region (North America, APAC) and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The global car wash services market size is expected to reach USD 38.61 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period. Consumer preference for professional vehicle wash services over home washing is increasing as the on-demand car wash trend continues.

A key trend among customers with hectic lifestyles and busy schedules is the shift from “DIY” to “DIY for me”. The concept of “all new, all the time” seems to have spurred the popularity of car washes, as automatic car washing has become the norm for vehicle owners over the past few decades. In the car care industry, new technologies and equipment have improved the car wash process, gained market share and raised customer expectations.

Additionally, the United States Census Bureau in 2020 estimated that over 70% of automobile owners in America started using car wash facilities instead of washing their car at home during the last decade (2011-2020). Every day, nearly 8 million vehicles are washed in car washes, according to estimates. Additionally, technological advancements are transforming the face of on-demand vehicle wash services. The primary goal of improving car wash technology is to reduce friction and manual vehicle preparation time, resulting in cleaner, drier vehicles in less time. Touchless and hybrid car washes are two technologies driving the company forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the industry. At the height of the pandemic, most businesses were closed. New York State allowed car washes to resume in late April 2021, but only under severe conditions that limited the number of personnel allowed on site and prohibited in-person payment.

Additionally, the pandemic has brought about several significant improvements in the industry. To make it easier for tech-savvy consumers, car washes have started using smartphone apps and online reservation systems. Car washes are also starting to accept smartphone payments. For some customers, not processing virtual wallet payments can be a deal breaker in an increasingly cashless environment. Car washes that accept more payment methods than a credit card reader attract more customers and grow faster.
