Cleaning Equipment & Materials firms have increased in value, argues new study
A new pricing guide from business analyst Plimsoll Publishing confirms there are some encouraging signs for the UK's largest Cleaning Equipment & Materials companies.
Plimsoll's latest research, which analyses the largest 673 Cleaning Equipment & Materials companies, states average company value within the Cleaning Equipment & Materials sector has increased by 1% and 176 firms have seen their value soar by 20%.
This exclusive pricing guide, also states that:
- Overall, the value of Cleaning Equipment & Materials firms analysed in the report are up 1%
- Companies with sales up to £1million have seen their value rise by 4%
- 99 businesses have seen their value fall by as much as a third
- Members of group of 82 organisations have seen their value increase by 50%
David Pattison, senior analyst on the project says: "This is a great barometer for the industry to measure the overall improvement in the market - albeit a modest increase in the average value. In all we identified 176 companies that have increased in value by 20% and their performance adds to the belief that the overall market has stabilised.
"However, although some companies have increased in value, there are still signs that the Cleaning Equipment & Materials market is still a challenging landscape.
"Given the tough economic conditions of recent years, 99 firms are seeing their value fall by over a third and it's clear the market is still highly competitive and this is impacting on the value of the companies.
"Of course a company is only worth what someone is willing to pay - however you need a start point and the Pricing Guide offers this."
