Landscaping Products

As Quoted In Pathway Cafe

Gains will be supported by a strong rebound in the construction of new housing completions, an acceleration in existing home sales, and growth of consumer disposable income.

US demand to rise 6.9% annually through 2017

US demand for landscaping products is projected to grow 6.9 percent per year through 2017 to $6.5 billion, reflecting a rebound in sales following the 2007-2009 recession and subsequent slow recovery. A strong rebound in the construction of new housing completions from low 2012 base levels will be the primary driver of growth. An acceleration in sales of existing homes, growth of consumer disposable income, and a rebound in construction expenditures in the office and commercial segment will also support gains.

Ongoing interest in outdoor living spaces to remain key growth factor

One key growth factor for landscaping products is ongoing interest in developing outdoor living spaces, which provide additional space for relaxation and entertaining. The decorative products segment, which was the largest in 2012, comprises products that are an important component of this trend. For instance, water features, lighting, pottery, and statuary can be used to add distinctive features and centerpieces to outdoor spaces. Hardscape products, which are projected to achieve the fastest growth through 2017, can be used to create the patios, walkways, edging, and walls that form the basis of outdoor rooms. Other products such as outdoor heating elements will also post strong gains.

Dominant residential market to grow the fastest

The residential market is the largest for landscaping products, accounting for over half of sales in 2012. Gains will be driven by a strong rebound in housing completions from a low 2012 base. Renewed growth in existing home sales will also boost sales of landscaping products, as consumers are most likely to alter their outdoor spaces within a few years of purchasing a home. In 2012, the improvement and repair segment was larger than the new segment, a reversal of the historical relation due to a sharp reduction in new housing completions between 2007 and 2012. However, the new market is projected to rebound through 2017, resuming its position as the larger residential segment.

The nonresidential market was also affected by the 2007-2009 recession, with a decline in nonresidential construction expenditures and elevated building vacancy rates inhibiting demand for landscaping products. Demand for landscaping products in the nonresidential market is concentrated in the office and commercial segments. Therefore, a rebound in construction expenditures will support growth as offices attempt to attract new tenants, restaurants upgrade their outdoor patios to create a higher end appearance, and company headquarters renovate their exteriors to improve their corporate image. Gains in the nonbuilding market will trail those of the other two markets, restrained by a continuing decline in the number of golf courses and limited state and local government budgets. Nonetheless, municipal efforts to address water runoff issues will support demand for permeable pavers and other related products, as will the conversion of vacant lots to community gardens and parks.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $4.6 billion US landscaping products industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., decorative products, hardscape products, outdoor structures), market (residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding), end user (professional, consumer/DIY), and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 34 industry players such as CRH, Pavestone, and HeidelbergCement.
