The outdoor shed market is expected to grow from US$ 6,590.60 million in 2021 to US$ 9,615.28 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2021–2028.

With growing industrialization across the world, there is a continuous need of storage area for storing all equipment, tools, and raw materials at a single place. Therefore, the demand for outdoor sheds is growing in industries. Steel metal is the most preferred material for building outdoor industrial sheds, owing to its properties such as tough nature and sturdiness. Increase in adoption of smartphones and high penetration of internet are bolstering the adoption of e-commerce across the world. Nowadays, products are easily accessible, with only a tap away. This has also influenced the outdoor shed businesses to adopt online selling channels to expand their respective customer bases. With the increase in population, the construction of residential houses is increasing. With this growth, the gardening activities are also rising. For keeping gardening tools, such as lawnmower, outdoor sheds are needed. For instance, the Garden Shed Company mentioned that there has been an increase in the number of orders for sheds and shed equipment in the UK. Also, in October 2020, the Timber Trade Federation reported that the imports of softwood were 34% higher than a year earlier. With stocks running low, whatever wood is available is quickly snapped up, according to The Economist Newspaper Limited 2021.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Outdoor Shed Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the growth of several industries worldwide, including the outdoor shed market.The tremendous growth in the spread of the virus has urged governments worldwide to impose strict restrictions on vehicle and human movement. Due to travel bans, mass lockdowns, and business shutdowns, the pandemic has affected economies and countless industries in various countries. The lockdown imposition has resulted in lesser production of commodities, goods, and services. Manufacturing, automotive, semiconductor & electronics, oil & gas, mining, aviation, and other industries have witnessed a decline in their operations due to the temporary shutdown of activities. The worldwide lockdown to minimize the transmission of virus has significantly disrupted the supply chain activities, along with the production volume, across several manufacturers, especially the small & medium enterprise owners. Moreover, the production activities in multiple industries have contracted significantly in 2020, resulting in decline in the manufacturing of outdoor sheds.

However, with the increase in popularity of gardening and consumers’ penchant for maintaining their lawns and continuing active lifestyles (bicycling, skis, camping equipment, and others), consumers need a place to store such equipment. Moreover, with the do-it-yourself (DIY) concept, most of the people across the globe are building outdoor sheds by themselves with the help of e-commerce for getting the raw materials. Also, with the release of lockdown restrictions in 2021, the manufacturing business has started in full strength, which would help in creating a positive scenario for the outdoor shed market.
