Nursery and garden stores have faced strong competition from home improvement stores and mass retailers, and this trend is expected to continue in the five years to 2019. Despite improving disposable incomes and home improvement budgets, consumers will increasingly favor large, low-cost retailers to specialty garden stores for their competitive prices and convenient one-stop-shop formats.
Stores in this industry primarily retail a broad range of nursery and garden products, including trees, shrubs, plants, seeds, bulbs and sod to households and the farming community. This industry also includes stores that retail farm supplies like animal feed (excluding pet food). The growing and retailing of nursery stock is included in the Plant and Flower Growing industry (IBISWorld report 11142).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
