The UK pest control franchise markets performance is closely linked to population density and environmental conditions. Due to the nature of service pest control franchises conduct, their performance isn’t impacted by economic conditions as much as other franchise markets. If somebody has a need for a pest control franchise, if left untreated, it will become costlier and potentially harm someone. This means even in hard times, pest control franchise opportunities should be considered a safe bet.
The UK pest control industry as a whole is growing about 6% a year, even through economic downturns. This growth is contributing to a market value of close to £350m for UK pest control businesses. We fully anticipate this growth to continue and potentially increase even further. We predict this continued performance of growth because as a country we are becoming even more densely populated in many areas. This often leads to worse environmental conditions such as trash build-up, which in turn increases pests in that area.
