Urban sprawl: Demand for industry services will likely benefit from increased government investment

The Landscape Design industry, which includes designers and architects that specialize in planning land, water and other outdoor areas, has experienced growth over the five years to 2019. Demand for landscape design services is directly tied to demand for construction and renovation of both residential and commercial buildings. Demand for construction has been increasing along with the housing market, leading to a rise in demand for landscape design services. Additionally, as a result of rising demand for industry services due to the increase in the value of construction, industry operators have been hiring highly skilled employees to have a competitive advantage in the industry. However, profit margins have also increased over the past five years, largely due to lower purchase and operational costs. New technological developments and advancements for landscape designers have helped lower purchases costs by reducing the need to purchase multiple equipment. Higher profitability has made the industry more attractive for existing and potential operators, causing the number of industry operators to increase. As the economy continues to expand over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to follow suit. Demand for construction and renovation is projected to continue to increase as businesses and individuals have additional disposable income to spend on building projects. As landscape projects are typically not thought of as a necessity, demand for landscape design services increases in line with disposable income levels, which is expected to rise over the next five years.

Operators in this industry plan and design the development of land areas for projects by applying their knowledge of land characteristics, locations of buildings and structures and use of terrain. Operators work on recreational areas, airports, highways and schools, as well as land subdivisions in commercial, industrial and residential areas. This industry does not include landscape care and maintenance services, such as installing and caring for trees, lawns or gardens.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
