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. Innovative home and garden pesticide sprays with precise nozzles and targeted delivery systems minimize overspray and improve effectiveness.  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 pest control solutions 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 in 2021, 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 Type 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. Non-crop pesticides are increasingly used in industrial sites, public spaces, and even aquatic environments for weed control, insect management, and disease prevention. Also, concerns about vector-borne diseases like mosquitoes and ticks are driving demand for targeted pest control solutions beyond the typical home and garden pest management.

Type Insights

The herbicides segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share of 43.50% in 2023. The growing popularity of DIY gardening activities is also boosting product demand, due to the increased adoption of landscaping among homeowners.

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 home and garden pesticides industry.

These products help prevent water runoff and flooding issues. The insecticides segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2024 to 2030.

Formulation Type Insights

Innovations in pesticide powder formulations are constantly being made to improve their effectiveness against pests. These advancements include water-soluble powders and dust formulations that are easy to apply and effective against specific pests.

Manufacturers are working on enhancing the longevity of powdered pesticides, ensuring they remain effective over time. Companies are also offering concentrated powder formulations that allow users to customize the strength of the pesticide solution, making it more appealing to household end users dealing with different levels of pest incursions.

Liquid formulations are often favored for their ease of application. Ready-to-use liquid pesticides, which require minimal mixing or dilution, have gained popularity among homeowners looking for convenient solutions for pest control. Liquid formulations may incorporate continuous release technologies, allowing for a gradual and sustained release of active ingredients. This contributes to longer-lasting pest control effects. Additionally, advancements in formulation technologies, such as microencapsulation or nanotechnology, are making liquid and powder formulations even more effective. These technologies enhance the stability, efficacy, and targeted delivery of the pesticides.
