US Lawn & Garden Consumables Market

  • June 2016
  • 284 pages

Report ID: 871077


Table of Contents

Demand for packaged lawn and garden consumables for the consumer/do-it-yourself (DIY) segment will be supported by rising consumer interest in lawn and garden maintenance activities, particularly as safe, easy-to-use, environmentally friendly products continue to be readily available in an ever-expanding array of options. In addition, vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens are expected to remain popular among consumers who adopted edible gardening as an inexpensive, productive, and sustainable hobby during the economic recession. As economic conditions continue to improve and the housing market expands, professional landscaping firms will see growth in business. Rising government spending will also contribute to higher demand for lawn and garden consumables at public buildings and parks.

Lawn & turf to remain largest application

Lawn and turf applications will remain the largest end use for consumables, largely based on the vast amount of acreage devoted to lawns and turf in residential yards, public spaces, and golf courses. Lawn maintenance is an established, popular outdoor pastime among consumers, and the widening range of available consumer products makes lawn care less daunting to amateurs. However, concerns about the environmental impact of lawn irrigation in typically dry parts of the US, increasing wariness of excessive fertilizer and pesticide use, and slowly declining golf course acreage will partially offset some of these factors. Demand for consumables for use in gardens and borders will benefit from expanding landscaping budgets in both residential and commercial settings, and from the ever-growing popularity of home and community gardens.

Safer, efficient options will boost growth

Fertilizers and pesticides will continue to account for the majority of lawn and garden consumables demand, particularly as the introduction of safer, more efficient products offsets concerns about overuse of chemicals. Value-added products such as specialty soil blends, branded or patented seed varieties, and customized colorful mulches are expected to show healthy growth, though packaged consumables will still face considerable competition from products such as bulk growing media and mulch, which are much less expensive.
