US golf course consumables demand will reach $1.3 billion in 2009 based on more golf rounds played and continued course construction. The best performing products will include less persistent and lower mobility fertilizers, more specific insecticides and salinity-resistant turf. Regional demand will follow population shifts south and west.
This study analyzes the US golf course consumables industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by product (e.g., fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, sod and turf seed, growing media, fertilizers); by application (e.g., greens and tees, fairways, roughs); and by US regional market.
The study also considers market environment indicators, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 34 leading competitors including LESCO, Syngenta, Bayer, Simplot, Andersons, Dow Chemical, and PBI/Gordon.
