According to a study on the Italian gardening industry the sales value of the gardening industry in Italy in 2017 was almost 3 billion Euro in a European panorama where the business is worth over 34 billion Dollars. On a global scale, instead, the sales have recorded 86 billion Dollars. The hard times are behind us, the trend up to 2022 is one of growth.
In 2017 half the sales in the gardening sector in Italy have focused on horticulture, a third of the total was represented by gardening tools, 12% by pots and containers (+6.9% 2017-2022) and 8% by garden care. The total sales of the industry have been 2.76 billion Euro.
An ever-increasing number of Italians buys (and gets information) online, and prefers organic products. Moreover, because of the progressive ageing of the population, the sales of gardening machinery will increase giving way to light, ergonomic and smart products (average growth 2017- 2022: +6.4%).
