Home & Garden Pesticides

As Quoted In Farm Chemicals International

Increased spending on lawn and garden maintenance as a way to increase home values, as well as consumer concern for environmentally-friendly products, will stimulate US growth.

US demand to grow 3.2% per annum through 2016

Demand in the US for home and garden pesticides is projected to rise 3.2 percent per year to $2.3 billion in 2016. Healthy growth in household applications will be promoted by consumers’ increased awareness of pest-borne diseases such as the West Nile virus, and by continued problems with aggressive insects such as bed bugs and red imported fire ants. However, gains will be hindered by the overall maturity of the market, as the majority of households in the US already use at least one pesticide product and many are wary of potential health hazards associated with pesticides.

Demand to be fueled by less toxic, ready-to-apply formulations

While active ingredients like 2,4-D, glyphosate, malathion, carbaryl, and DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) remain some of the most commonly used products in home and garden pesticides, the market has been undergoing a shift in product mix that can be seen in two different trends. First, a growing level of environmental awareness has led to increased availability of less toxic and/or naturally derived pesticides. The other major shift has been the increased presence of ready-to-apply formulations. Most of these products have very low levels of active ingredients, and derive most of their value from the traits that make them especially convenient, such as special formulations and packaging.

Increased consumer spending, environmental concerns to revive growth

represent a rebound from the 2006-2011 period, which was characterized by sluggish growth as consumers were impacted by the recession. Growth will be promoted by increased spending on lawn and garden maintenance as a way to increase home values, in addition to continued interest in do-it-yourself yard activities, especially in lawn care and edible gardening. Public health and environmental concerns, in addition to expectations regarding product efficiency and ease of use, are strong drivers of consumer demand and producer innovation. Lawn and garden pesticide demand is influenced by the fact that many communities put a great deal of emphasis on having well-groomed yards that require proper pest management in gardens, lawns, and other outdoor areas.

For household applications, many consumers are motivated by the health concerns posed by household pests such as rodents, mosquitoes, and other insects. Consumers expect that home and garden pesticide products will be effective, easy to use, and safe for use around people and pets. It is also becoming increasingly important that these products have no adverse environmental effects, including impacts on air, water, soil, and non-target organisms.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $2 billion US home and garden pesticide industry, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., formulations, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, biopesticides), application (e.g., lawn and garden, household) and raw material (e.g., active ingredients, inert ingredients).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including Scotts Miracle-Gro, Spectrum Brands, and SC Johnson & Son.
