Global Vehicle wash system Market Insights, Trends & Future Development Status
Posted by Arslan on February 15th, 2019
The vehicle wash system industry has witnessed dominance of traditional car wash practices including full-service, in-bay automatic and self-service. With the growing consumer preference for convenience and automation, express exterior and flex-serve are the highly sought after vehicle wash systems. The vehicle wash system industry is undergoing a gradual shift from the manual washing to automation, as investors seek to maximize profitability while offering high-quality services to clients. While full-service vehicle wash system includes over 20 employees for its complete operation, recent automated vehicle wash systems such as express and flex-serve operate on minimal labor and deliver greater output. These underlying factors are likely to result into growing proliferation of express and flex-serve vehicle wash outlets in the vehicle wash system market.

The advanced wash technology responds to diverse vehicle models with greater speed, efficiency and wash quality.
