High pressure washers (HPW) are devices that employ pressure mechanism to spray water at high pressure to remove dirt from surfaces. Its mechanism includes a pump powered by gas (petrol/diesel) or electric source that projects water through a hose. Pressure washers are an important part of cleaning equipment industry and is often clubbed together with devices such as vacuum cleaners. Pressure washing is primarily employed to remove dirt from places that are difficult to clean such as industrial machinery or as simple as cars or walls.

The major hindrance for the growth of pressure washer market will be the government regulations regarding wastewater disposal and pollution. Increasing shortage for fresh water will significantly influence the demand for pressure waters. According to Environment Protection Agency (EPA), an average household owner consumes more than 116 gallons of water to wash a car. Increasing environmental concerns from general public and potential government regulations will limit the equipment demand.

The water deposed from cleaning equipment and structures needs to be disposed in proper manner, which presents a challenge to the pressure washer users and manufacturers alike. The added cost related to the disposal may result in users opting for other cleaning practices or equipment. However, many pressure washer manufacturers such as Nilfisk and Kercher are employing new technologies and simpler designs to achieve a greater degree of cleaning at expense of using minimum water and resulting in lesser volume of wastewater.

Effectiveness of high pressure washers is judged by its power to spray water on surface. PSI is the common form of measurements used to classify the pressure washers. HPW emit water stream at force that is approximately 50 times greater than normal garden hose. Hence, power of HPW employed for applications differ with end user needs.

The high pressure washer market is suitably segmented on basis of PSI ranges including pressure washers from 0-1,500;1,500-3,000; 3,001-6,000; 6,001-10,000; and above 10,000. High pressure washer in range of 3000 to 6000 PSI have significant market share owing to it use in industrial and janitorial cleaning. High pressure washers are largely used in the combination of GPM. For example: a pressure washer with 2800 PSI power used at 2 GPM gives similar result as other pressure washer with higher PSI such as 3500 at 1.2 GPM. Largely, the pressure washing effect is achieved in conjunction of waterpower and its flow rate (GPM). The use of HPW of PSI 3000 to 6000 is expected to grow on account of growing food & pharmaceutical, construction equipment and janitorial cleaning industry, registering almost 32% share in 2019.
