Lawn & Garden Consumables - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for packaged lawn and garden consumables will rise 3.4 percent annually to $9.0 billion in 2018. Fertilizer will remain the largest type while growing media and seeds will increase the fastest. Organic formulations will outpace the dominant conventional segment, albeit from a small base.

This study analyzes the $7.6 billion US lawn and garden consumables industry. It presents historical demand data with forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by product (e.g., fertilizer, pesticides, growing media, seeds, mulch), market (e.g., residential, golf courses, government and institutional, commercial and industrial), application (e.g., lawn and turf care, gardens and borders), end user (e.g., consumer/DIY, professional) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including Scotts Miracle-Gro, TurfCare Supply and Central Garden & Pet.
