Report Overview

The global home and garden pesticides market size was estimated at USD 8.14 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% from 2023 to 2030. Home gardens have been an important part of family farming and local food systems for millennia. Many pesticide treatments for residences are now ready-to-use, with liquid formulations requiring no further mixing, which makes farming local food easier. Moreover, pesticide producers have simplified the safe application of pesticides. Pesticides used daily include ant and roach sprays in the kitchen, weed killers for the yard, mildew cleaners in the bathroom, and mosquito repellents outside. Pesticides are commonly used for keeping homes and gardens pest-free.

U.S. Home And Garden Pesticides market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Many businesses are launching new products, such as BASF’s Renestra insecticide, which has a dual mode of action and controls a broad spectrum of insects. It enables farmers to control a variety of insect pests as well as soybean aphids. Mortein Smart, a premium innovation, was also launched. The product switches between high and normal settings automatically. In addition, according to Bonnie Plants, more than 20 million Americans planted a vegetable garden for the first time during the COVID-19 outbreak, indicating that the market for home and garden pesticides is quickly expanding in North America. It appears to be an opportune time for a seed start-up in the form of Sproutl, a UK-based gardening software firm trying to introduce gardening to a whole new generation of gardeners and encourage everyone to get involved.

Moreover, the Horticultural Trade Association reports that the number of gardeners increased by three million last year, with over half of those being aged under 45 years. Plant searches surpassed those for clothes during the lockdown and Google GOOG +0.1 percent searches linked to gardening have risen from May 2020 to May 2021. Furthermore, the growing popularity of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) gardening hobbies is an added factor supporting the market growth. Gardening as a hobby is particularly popular among Americans as well as Europeans, with a record number of youngsters taking up gardening as a hobby. This will also be one of the key factors driving the market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, according to the blog by Financial Times in September 2020, gardening was the second most popular activity during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, the first being watching TV. A rise in the trend for green spaces in urban homes and parks has intrigued a significant potential for the home and garden pesticides industry over the next few years. The global population is increasing at an exponential rate, which in turn has increased the needs of the people. Also, rising awareness about environmental degradation has led to people creating a greener environment around them to avoid pollution, poor air quality, and water contamination.

To mitigate these effects, governments of various countries have launched several schemes to build green spaces and parks based on environmental guidelines. For instance, in India, as per the guidelines of the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), each urban local body (ULB) should have at least one green space or park based on the environmental guidelines set by the Urban and Regional Development Plans Formulation and Implementation (URDPFI). Thus, with an increase in green spaces around metro cities, there has been a rise in product demand to protect plants from pests.

Type Insights

The herbicides segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share of over 43.63% in 2022. The growing popularity of DIY gardening activities is also boosting product demand, due to the increased adoption of landscaping among homeowners. Herbicides are products used for killing undesired plants, similar to how pesticides are used to kill pests. Herbicides are commonly used to eliminate weeds or clear brush from an area. Herbicides are available in both synthetic and organic forms.

Regardless of the type, they should be handled with extreme caution. In addition, the rising demand for hardscaping is also projected to bode well for the overall growth of the market for home and garden pesticides. Hardscaping is witnessing increased acceptance due to the growing demand for paving blocks and stamped concrete plank pavers made up of natural stones and porcelain. These products help prevent water runoff and flooding issues. The insecticides segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The garden application segment held the largest revenue share of over 79.03% in 2022. The epidemic boosted the appeal of backyard gardens. The lockdown, according to many of these new growers, provided them time and energy to focus on their new hobby of cultivating. During the lockdown, the National Allotment Society reported an increase in the number of people signing up for plots on their local council's waiting lists, demonstrating that this is an urban as well as a rural trend.

Restaurants and small eateries, such as outside cafes, are popular places for social meetings and possible plant displays. This also opens the door for market expansion. Furthermore, numerous projects are underway to promote planting activities in public spaces, such as transportation stations, roadways, and lanes. On an overcast day with moderate temperatures, the best time to use a pesticide is when the soil is reasonably dry and there is no forecast for rain. To avoid pesticide drifting to non-target regions, the pesticide is never applied in windy conditions.

Regional Insights

In 2022, North America held the largest share of more than 37.51%. In the U.S. and Canada, tending a kitchen garden is currently a key trend, where homeowners produce fresh vegetables for their own needs. In 2019, the average spending on home and garden products from January through mid-May was USD 7 million to USD 14 million. With COVID-19 and its socially distancing orders, the amount spent in 2020 was approximately twice the amount spent in 2019. Pesticides are widely utilized in the developing world, and demand for pesticides is rising because of the existing food production system, which prioritizes high agricultural yields.

Home And Garden Pesticides Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Pesticides, manufactured from chemicals that can control pests or influence plant growth, have provided an approach for developing countries to enhance harvests. Many farmers in underdeveloped nations believe that using pesticides is the best way to protect their crops from pests, such as desert locusts, which are considered a major threat to crops in Africa this year. Therefore, using insecticides may be the only source of crop insurance. The market in the UK is expected to grow at a substantial rate over the forecast period owing to the rise in spending on home gardens.

According to a study conducted by Power Sheds in 2021, a manufacturer of garden sheds, the UK experienced a significant increase in consumer spending at garden centers as the country emerged from lockdown and transitioned toward a state of normalcy earlier this year. The study also revealed that the extended periods spent at home during the past 18 months led to a substantial rise in expenditures on home and garden equipment. Specifically, there was an additional USD 887 million spent at garden centers in the period of April-June 2021 when compared to the corresponding timeframe in 2020.
