Home & Garden Pesticides

US demand to rise 3.5% annually through 2016
US demand for home and garden pesticide products will increase 3.5 percent annually through 2016, driven by increased interest in home gardening activities and by continued concerns about pest-borne diseases. Insecticides are the largest product type by value, while herbicides are expected to show the strongest growth due to recovery in lawn and garden applications. Growth will also be promoted by the use of value-added, ready-to-apply products, and by sustained interest in less hazardous products like biopesticides. Greater public awareness of pest-borne diseases, such as hantavirus and West Nile Virus, will also contribute to demand for home pest control products and repellents.

Lawn and garden pesticides to outpace household types
Lawn and garden pesticide demand is expected to grow faster than demand for household pest control products, due primarily to a recovery in the housing market and improved economic prospects overall. Continuing the trends seen in the 2006-2011 period, which was characterized by “staycations” and do-it-yourself yard maintenance during the recession, demand for lawn and garden pest control products will be buoyed by interest in gardening (especially edible gardens) and other yard activities. Similar to household pest control, demand for lawn and garden pesticides will be strongly impacted by increased interest in less hazardous pesticides, such as natural pesticides and animal repellents. Some biopesticides, such as Bacillus thuringiensis, have already established a presence in the lawn and garden segment of the pesticide industry, but the natural and organic pesticide category as a whole remains less mature than conventional lawn and garden pesticides, offering plenty of room for expansion.

In the larger household segment of the market, growth will be buoyed by concerns about pest-borne diseases, such as West Nile Virus, and by a greater level of interest in environmentally friendly pest control. The strongest gains are expected in products that can effectively protect people and the home from pest populations, while still remaining safe for people, pets, and the environment. For example, insect repellents are forecast to show faster growth than insect controls, and animal repellents are expected to overtake rodenticides by 2016. Although conventional insect repellents — such as those containing DEET and picaridin — will remain the most common types, biorepellents such as lemon eucalyptus oil are expected to show much faster growth as consumers become more interested in naturally derived alternatives.

Shift toward value-added products to boost prices
In addition to trends favoring safer pesticide products, the US home and garden pesticide industry is expected to continue to be affected by the shift toward value-added, ready-to-apply products available in a range of retail locations. Many of these products contain very little active ingredient, but can be sold at a premium price due to proprietary formulations that maximize a pesticide’s efficacy in a particular climate or application. Additionally, many of these products are sold in special packaging, such as a specially designed spray bottle that enhances the ease of use and contributes to the value of the pesticide. The availability of pest control products in locations such as drug stores, garden supply centers, convenience stores, mass merchandisers, and home improvement stores contributes to industry growth as pesticides are readily available to consumers.

Study coverage
This upcoming Freedonia industry study, Home & Garden Pesticides, is priced at $4900. It presents historical demand data (2001, 2006, 2011) and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product, application and raw material. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles industry players.

World Disposable Medical Supplies

World demand to rise 6.4% annually through 2016
Global demand for disposable medical supplies is projected to grow 6.4 percent annually to nearly $200 billion in 2016. The upgrading and enforcement of infection prevention standards, coupled with an expanding volume of hospital, surgical and outpatient procedures, will promote overall gains. The United States, China, Japan, Germany, Russia, France, India, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Brazil will comprise the ten largest geographical markets, combining to absorb nearly 70 percent of global demand in 2016. During the forecast period (2011- 2016), average annual growth in these markets will range from 3.7 percent in Japan to nearly 13 percent in China.

Demand for disposable medical supplies in the United States, Western Europe, Japan and virtually all other developed countries will expand at a below average pace through 2016 and beyond, given that medical delivery systems are well established, meet the health care needs of most residents, and have already adopted stringent infection prevention standards. By contrast, growth in China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many other emerging economies will exceed the world average as health care sectors are expanded, modernized, and adapted to formal infection prevention protocols.

Dialysis disposables to be fastest growing products
The range of disposable medical supplies consumed worldwide extends into 11 major product segments and 8 additional product lines. Among the major product segments, world demand in 2016 will range from $7.5 billion for patient room supplies to $32.2 billion for surgical instruments and supplies. Dialysis disposables will realize the fastest growth based on an increasing global prevalence of serious renal disorders. Other product segments projected to see above average gains in demand include infusion and hypodermic devices, diagnostic and laboratory disposables, nonwoven garments and textiles, and respiratory supplies and devices. The fastest growth among the eight additional product lines will evolve in transdermal patches, urinary catheters and accessories, and first aid kits.

Advances in disposable medical supplies are contributing significant improvements to the safety and outcome of patient procedures. Products such as Level 4 microbial resistant surgical gowns and drapes have greatly reduced the risk of spreading air- and blood-borne infections during surgery. New polymer and bioengineered tissue sealants are decreasing the length of many surgical procedures and are promoting the faster recovery of post-operative patients.

Disposable drug delivery supplies also to grow rapidly
Drug delivery comprises another fast growing application served by disposable medical supplies. New and improved safety-engineered prefillable and hypodermic syringes and IV catheters have substantially lowered the risk of accidental staff and patient needlesticks before and after medication injections. Innovations in prefilled inhalers and transdermal patches are expanding the range of chronic conditions adaptable to cost effective self treatment. In addition to drug delivery, innovations in disposable medical supplies are enabling patients to self perform a number of other health care functions, including blood glucose testing, urinary drainage, and chronic wound management.

Study coverage
This upcoming Freedonia industry study, World Disposable Medical Supplies, is priced at $6200. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, plus forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product, world region and for 54 countries. The study also considers key market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry competitors.
