Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

2% increase expected in garden industry until 2023

According to AMA Research’s 2017 Garden Market Analysis Report, the UK Garden Products market is currently valued at £5.7billion and is expected to benefit from a 2% annual increase until 2023.

With technology, sustainability, ethical living, and millennials driving this growth, the long-term picture offers a stark contrast to the doom and gloom that is shaping the UK high street.

Commenting on the growth, GLEE trade show event director, Matthew Mein, said: “Garden retail is witnessing a real resurgence at the moment as a new wave of consumers engage with the market, and exciting new trends place gardening on both the national and international stage.

We're also seeing gardening brands leading the discussion on issues such as sustainability and single use plastic, and in both cases offering viable and responsible solutions. There is no doubt that gardening is securing its longevity."
