Lawn & Outdoor Equipment Stores in the US
Bolstered by a revival in spending on home improvements, the Lawn and Outdoor Equipment Stores industry has recovered significantly over the five years to 2017. As consumers' confidence in the economy has improved alongside increased disposable income, households increased their spending on items such as lawn and garden tools. Downstream demand also increased as the housing and construction market revived and homeowners and businesses resumed lawn and garden repair and maintenance projects put on hold during the recession. Despite positive signals from various economic indicators driving the industry's recovery, the industry has been threatened by fierce external competition from home improvement stores. Over the five years to 2022, despite rising consumer confidence and increasing disposable income, external competition will continue to threaten industry operators. The emergence of a new line of environmentally friendly products will present an opportunity for lawn and outdoor equipment stores to recover some lost demand.
