Lawn & Garden Consumables

Growth will be boosted by continued recovery in new home construction and by rising participation rates in do-it-yourself (DIY) gardening and lawn maintenance activities.

US demand to rise 3.4% annually through 2018

Demand for packaged lawn and garden consumables in the US is forecast to rise 3.4 percent annually to $9.0 billion in 2018. Growth will be boosted by continued recovery in new home construction. Participation rates in do-it-yourself (DIY) gardening and lawn maintenance activities are also expected to rise marginally, following a decade of steady declines. Outside of the residential market, gains will be supported by improving economic conditions that allow businesses to place a greater emphasis on landscaping activities.

Residential market to drive both DIY & pro segments

Increased levels of new home construction and rising personal incomes will boost demand in both the consumer and professional segments of the residential market. DIY users in the residential segment will increasingly favor ready-to-use, value-added formulations, often in the form of combination products such as pesticide and fertilizer blends or soil and fertilizer mixtures. Continued growth of consumer interest in organic products will also boost demand. In the professional segment, lawn and garden consumables demand is expected to rise as households become more able to afford professional landscaping services, often in addition to DIY lawn and garden care. Golf courses, the second largest market for lawn and garden consumables, are expected to represent a declining share of demand as reductions in overall golf course acreage partially offset a transition to more environmentally friendly, higher priced products.

Gardening applications to outpace lawn & other uses

Gardens are often perceived by consumers as being more environmentally sustainable than lawns, and interest in vegetable gardening in particular is expected to continue to rise as many consumers consider it to be an enjoyable hobby and a practical means of reducing grocery expenses. This will cause demand growth for packaged consumables in gardening applications to outpace lawn and other applications. The introduction of new formulations and blends of pesticides, fertilizers, and growing media and specially-developed seed varieties, particularly products specifically for use in flower or vegetable gardening, will contribute to rising sales in this segment. Demand for lawn care consumables is expected to accelerate from the limited growth seen in the 2008-2013 period, when economic difficulties made lawn care less of a priority. Lawn care consumables demand will also be aided by the greater availability of value-added, easy-to-use products, which is expected to contribute to an increase in the number of applications of pesticides and fertilizers over the course of the growing season.

Study coverage

Details on these and other findings are found in Lawn & Garden Consumables, Freedonia industry study. 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.
