The Garden Supplies Retailing industry has been affected by intensifying external competition over the past five years. The industry accounts for about half the value of garden supplies retail sales in Australia, with the remainder of sales generated by competitors that are not included in the industry. Goods retailed by the industry may also be purchased from domestic hardware stores (e.g. Bunnings and Mitre 10), discount department stores (e.g. Kmart), online retailers and supermarkets.
Operators in this industry sell garden supplies or nursery goods such as seedlings, bulbs, shrubs, trees, pesticides, fertilisers and other nursery stock. These goods are purchased largely from wholesalers and sold directly to consumers via retail outlets. Retailers that primarily sell cut flowers are excluded from the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
