According to projection by the UN population division, India’s population is expected to reach about 1.5 billion by 2030 from about 1.34 billion in 2017. Considering the 2017 data and we assume a standard family size of 4 individuals, it translates to 33.5 crores households. As per our research and experience, and industry estimates, a household in India spends about ₹ 9,000 per year on laundry. So, 33.5 crores households spending ₹ 9,000 per year creates an ₹ 3,00,000 crores market and this is just the B2C share.
Commercial establishments such as pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, hospitals, hotels, housing complexes, and government public transportation services such as railways etc. establish their own in-house laundry, on-premises, for cleaning uniforms, linen etc.
International tourists arriving to India are likely to reach 3.05 crores (30.5 million) by 2028. Total contribution by travel and tourism sector to India’s GDP is forecast to rise from ₹ 15,24,000 crores (USD 234.03 billion) in 2017 to ₹ 32,05,000 crores (USD 492.21 billion) in 2028.
