Lawn and Garden Equipment

U.S. lawn and garden equipment sales growth turned sluggish since 2011 after recovering between 2009 and 2011. The weakness has centered on low-cost imported product lines as homeowners and commercial purchasers moved up to higher-value domestically-made lawn and garden equipment.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Lawn and Garden Equipment. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
