Report Overview                       

The global home and garden pesticides market size was valued at USD 7.36 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0% from 2021 to 2028. Home gardens have been an important part of family farming and local food systems for millennia. Gardening at home is a centuries-old and widely practiced activity all around the world. Many pesticide treatments for residences are now ready-to-use, with liquid formulations requiring no further mixing. Pesticide producers make it simple to apply pesticides safely. Any material used to kill, control, or repel pests is considered a pesticide. Pesticides are used daily, 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.

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 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.

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.

Application Insights                                               

The garden application segment held the largest share of over 75.0% in 2020. 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                                                                                                    

In terms of value, herbicides dominated the market with a share of over 40.0% in 2020. 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 projected to bode well for the overall market growth. 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

In 2020, North America held the largest share of more than 35.0%. In the U.S. and Canada, tending a kitchen garden is currently a key trend, where homeowners produce fresh vegetables for their own needs. According to Farm and Dairy, an increasing number of Americans are growing their own food at home and community gardens, increasing from 36 million households in 2008 to 42 million in 2013. This, in turn, boosted the usage of pesticides and subsequently fueled the growth of the market.

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.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights        

The market for home and garden pesticides is characterized by the presence of various well-established players, along with several promising players. Multinational ventures of companies are often limited to developed economies, such as the U.S., South Korea, the U.K., Japan, and the European Union.
