US home and garden pesticide demand will rise 4.1 percent annually through 2013. Insecticides will remain the largest type based on concerns about insect-borne diseases and imported aggressive insects. Fungicides and other types will be the fastest growing segment. Household applications will outpace lawn and garden uses.
This study analyzes the $1.4 billion US home and garden pesticide industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, with forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., insecticide, herbicide, fungicide), application (e.g., household, lawn and garden) and raw material (e.g., pesticides, minerals, surfactants, solvents).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including SC Johnson & Son, Monsanto and Scotts Miracle-Gro.
