US home and garden pesticide demand will grow 4.8 percent annually through 2011. Gains will be driven by new products that feature more convenient packaging, improved safety or varied versions such as ready-to-use and superconcentrated. Insecticides will stay dominant while fungicides and other types grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $1.3 billion US home and garden pesticide industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product (e.g., insecticides, herbicides, fungicides), application (household, lawn and garden) and material (e.g., active ingredients, minerals, surfactants, solvents).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 30 major players including SC Johnson, Spectrum Brands, Monsanto, and Scotts Miracle-Gro.
