Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The industry is expected to grow as demand for ecofriendly products and gardening methods rises
  • Industry operators experienced mounting competition from other retailers
  • The growing popularity of community and urban gardens has enticed a slew of young gardeners
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Over the past five years, the Nursery and Garden stores industry has experienced a blossoming recovery. The industry retails a wide range of plants, seeds, bulbs and gardening tools and equipment to households, businesses and the farming community. The strengthening consumer segment has been largely responsible for the industry's recovery, with per capita disposable income and consumer confidence steadily increasing over the period. While heightened external competition and the lingering effects of the recession pushed some operators out of the industry, the remaining stores have largely been able to overcome the competitive environment. As a result, over past five years, industry revenue is expected to increase.
