Garden centre report predicts underlying 2-4 per cent growth to 2019

The 12th edition of the report 'Garden Products Distribution Market Report - UK 2015-2019 Analysis' has been published.

The report, produced by AMA Research, includes a review of recent market trends and forecasts over the next few years.

Market forecasts are for steady underlying growth to 2019, benefiting from pent up demand in many product areas and a stronger performance in the housebuilding sector in the next couple of years - as well as housemoving levels - though the weather will always impact on the market in any given year.

Given the high maturity of most product sectors of the market, underlying growth rates are forecast to be more modest in the medium and long term with underlying annual growth rates of 2-4 per cent to 2019. Development of some niche, less mature products, such as garden rooms and artificial grass, are expected to benefit the market as these will experience slightly higher levels of growth before reaching maturity.
