Landscaping Products US industry forecasts for 2013 & 2018

US demand to grow nearly 6% annually through 2013
US demand for landscaping products is forecast to increase 5.9 percent per year to $7.3 billion in 2013, an acceleration from rates achieved during the 2003-2008 period. Although gains are expected to be modest in the short term, the housing market is expected to recover by 2013, creating opportunities for landscaping products. Lifestyle trends focusing on family and staying at home will also promote the use of landscaping products, as homeowners look for ways to maximize their home’s potential, primarily by creating outdoor living spaces. Limiting further gains will be a marked slowdown in the construction of nonresidential buildings, as well as government spending on the landscaping of public areas. Continuing struggles in the golf industry, where growth in new course construction will be weak, will also restrict landscaping product demand.

Water features to spur decorative products growth

Landscaping products include a variety of items used to improve the appearance of lawns, vegetable and flower gardens, borders and other areas of residential, commercial or municipal properties. Gains in demand for decorative products will benefit from the relatively low market penetration of water features (e.g., ponds and fountains), as more property owners look to these items as a way of reducing unwanted nearby noise and promoting tranquility. Product developments featuring easy installation and energy saving technology will promote demand for lighting, which is increasingly used to accent pathways, statuary, green goods and water features.

Concrete products to boost hardscape demand
Hardscapes will continue to face competition from alternative materials, such as wood decking. Nevertheless, these products will experience favorable growth as individuals value the aesthetics and durability of various concrete products (e.g., pavers), and stones and boulders in the construction of patios and walkways, and surrounds for outdoor fireplaces, ponds and in-ground swimming pools.

A renewed interest in food gardening (e.g., berries, herbs and vegetables) will fuel demand for hobby greenhouses, while other outdoor structures, such as gazebos, arches and pergolas, will benefit from their occasional incorporation into an outdoor living area. Among other landscaping products, heating features will achieve the more rapid gains, as homeowners incorporate elements in their outdoor space designed to promote an oasis-like atmosphere and extend the time they can enjoy their outdoor space.
