Report Overview

The global home and garden pesticides market size was valued at USD 7.7 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% from 2022 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 make farming local food easier. Moreover, pesticide producers make it simple to apply pesticides safely. Pesticides are used on a daily basis, from ant and roach sprays in the kitchen, to weed killers for the yard, mildew cleaners in the bathroom, and mosquito repellents outside. Pesticides have become a common practice for keeping homes and gardens pest-free.

Many businesses are launching new products, such as BASF's Renestra insecticide, which has a dual mode of action and will control a broad spectrum of insects. It will give farmers a way 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 U.K.-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 under 45. 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 for home and garden pesticides. 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 is also expected to be one of the key factors driving the market for home and garden pesticides during the forecast period. Additionally, 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.

Application Insights

The garden application segment dominated the market for home and garden pesticides and held the largest revenue share of over 78.9% in 2021. The epidemic boosted the appeal of backyard gardens. The lockdown, according to many of these new growers, provided them more 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 to market expansion. Furthermore, a number of 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 no rain is forecast. To avoid pesticide drifting to non-target regions, never apply pesticide when there is wind.

Type Insights

The herbicides segment dominated the home and garden pesticides market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 43.8% in 2021. The growing popularity of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) gardening activities is also boosting demand for home and garden pesticides, thanks to the increased adoption of landscaping among homeowners. Herbicides are products that are used to kill 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 highest CAGR over the forecast period.

Regional Insights

In 2021, North America held the largest share of more than 37.49%. 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, 2020 almost doubled the amount spent in 2019.

Pesticides are widely utilized in the developing world, and demand for pesticides is rising as a result of the existing food production system, which prioritizes high agricultural yields. Pesticides, which are made up of chemicals that can control pests or influence plant growth, have provided one 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 like desert locusts, which have been a major danger in parts of Africa this year. As a result, insecticides may be the only source of crop insurance.
