Car Wash Services Market Analysis Report By Type, Mode of Payment, COVID-19 Impacts, Region, Latest Trends, And Growth Forecasts, 2030

The global car wash services market size is anticipated to reach USD 38.61 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Consumer preference for professional vehicle wash services over home washing is growing as the on-demand car wash trend continues. A key trend among customers with hectic lifestyles and busy schedules is the shift from ‘do-it-yourself’ to ‘do-it-for-me’. The concept of “all-new, all the time” appears to have driven wash centers’ popularity as automated car washing has become the norm for vehicle owners during the last few decades. In the automobile care industry, new technologies and equipment have improved the wash process, gained market share, and raised client expectations.

  • The cashless payment segment accounted for the highest share in 2021 and is estimated to ascend with a significant CAGR over the forecast period
  • The market growth is fueled by technological advancements in the banking industry, as well as a rise in the number of car wash providers that accept cashless payments

In addition, the United States Census Bureau in 2020 estimated that more than 70% of automobile owners in America started using car wash facilities instead of washing their cars at home in the last decade (2011 -2020). Every day, nearly 8 million vehicles are washed in car washes, according to the estimates. Furthermore, technological advancements are transforming the face of on-demand vehicle wash services. The main purpose 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 washing are two technologies that are moving the business forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a huge impact on the industry. During the peak of the pandemic, most businesses were closed. New York State authorized 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. Furthermore, the pandemic ushered in several significant improvements in the industry. To make it easier for tech-savvy consumers, car washes have begun to use smartphone apps and online booking systems. Car washes are beginning to take smartphone payments as well. For some clients, 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 clients and grow more quickly.
