Various chemicals such as insecticides, fertilizers, pesticides, nematicides, and growth regulators are added to the cultivation of turfgrass and ornamental plants which protects them and helps them grow rapidly. With rapid development and environmental laws, the chemical input business, notably for grass and ornamental plants, has been changing over the years. The market for turf and cultivating inputs machinery is divided into various segments, including the type of turf grass, type of ornamental grass,  synthetic chemical input, and geographical regions.

The cultivation, protection, and maintenance of high-quality turfgrasses and ornamental plants by global landscape and horticulture industries demand effective chemicals and inputs. Turf and ornamentals can be damaged for a variety of reasons which include pest infestation, infectious diseases, lack of appropriate weather, and poor management practices. Therefore rising demand for turfgrasses and ornamental plants for tourism and sports fields along with the flourishing landscaping industry will drive the growth of the global market during the forecast period. Growing population, diminishing arable land, food security, and the need for increased agricultural productivity are the major reasons driving the need for increased agricultural production, hence bolstering the worldwide expansion of the crop protection sector. In addition, rising demand for ornamental plants from the residential sector is also supporting the global market expansion during the forecast period. According to the analysis North America and Asia Pacific region are expected to hold a significant market share in the turf and ornamental input market during the projection period.

However, high application costs and complex rules are likely to obstruct the growth of the global market for ploughing and cultivating machinery during the projection period. Continuous product innovation and launches along with growing demand for eco-friendly chemicals are providing new opportunities for key market players.

During the anticipation period, the growing demand for landscaping for tourism and sports field purposes will support the growth of the global turf and ornamental inputs market.

The agriculture sector in various countries has gone through a rapid transformation in the last decade. Statistics show that landscape and horticulture services are becoming increasingly popular in comparison to agricultural operations. Landscaping contributes significantly to the global economy, as indicated by the billions of dollars in gross sales of landscaping services to residences, government agencies, and companies like golf courses, private parks, hotels, and private schools. Therefore growing demand for landscaping solutions will propel the growth of the global market as landscapes employ turfgrasses and ornamental plants. According to the data from the National Association of Landscape Professionals the sector now employs over 1.2 million people and has 633,481 landscaping service companies. The landscaping industry is mostly driven by demand from the residential sector, hotels, and sports fields, and 32 percent of landscaping businesses claim that landscape maintenance is their fastest-growing service offering driving the growth input chemicals even further.

During the forecast period, North America is anticipated to hold a significant share of the global turf and ornamental inputs market.

North American region is anticipated to hold a substantial market share in turf and ornamental input. This region will experience rapid expansion throughout the projection period due to the growing demand for landscaping solutions for lawns, golf courses, hotels, and sports fields. Turf and ornamental inputs are in high demand in markets such as the United States and Canada. This region's market is also expanding as a result of the high popularity of golf and other sports. Golf is a popular sport in the United States, where there are presently more than 15,000 golf courses. Lawns and leisure turf are among the most widely cultivated crops in the United States. These recreational turfs and lawns are mainly selected for landscaping by homeowners and business establishments. People in North America are changing to native grasses because they help conserve water. This aspect will likely increase demand for fertilizers and other chemical inputs in the projection timeline. Moreover, the lack of resources such as arable land and water is also spurring regional demand for turf and ornamental input chemicals and products. In addition, the prevalence of key market players such as BASF SE, Bayer CropScience AG, Syngenta, Nufarm Limited, and others also spur the growth of turf and ornamental input in this region.

Market Key Developments

  • In January 2022, Nufarm Americas Inc. announced a partnership with Lier Chemical Company, Ltd. to deliver glufosinate to the Turf & Ornamental sector.
  • Glufosinate solutions, like Nufarm's Cheetah Pro Herbicide, have seen tremendous development in the U.S. T&O market as broadleaf and grass weed species develop resistance to several herbicide classes and applicators seek alternate options.
  • In August 2020, Aycorp collaborated with Tim Zech to acquire the commercial assets of RightLine, a manufacturer and marketer of specialty grass and ornamental chemicals. RightLine will continue to operate in the United States without interruption, offering a diverse range of post-patent herbicides, fungicides, nematicides, and insecticides.
