53% Unprecedented Growth Rate in Cannabis Cultivation Supply Segment
New Frontier Data and GrowGeneration Corp. release a first-of-its-kind report examining market insights on cannabis cultivation supplies, brands and products
Washington, Dec. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New Frontier Data, the global cannabis industry authority in business intelligence and data analysis reporting, in partnership with GrowGeneration Corp. (OTCQX: GRWG), the largest publicly traded cannabis specialty retail hydroponic and organic gardening stores, has just published Cannabis Cultivation Insights: Retail Supplies Market, the first-ever study dedicated to the growing cannabis cultivation supplies sector, presenting unprecedented data and analytics on market size, growth trends, pricing and brand traction.
“There has not been a new crop discovery in modern times, so to have front row seats to the impact cannabis cultivation is having over mature adjacent segments such as cultivation supplies, which traditionally has seen little to no growth, is just incredible. We expect cannabis, and soon hemp, cultivation and verticals that support it, to not only experience unique trends, but to also begin impacting their respective counterpart verticals across other more mature cultivation sectors, changing the way we think about cultivation globally,” said New Frontier Data Founder & CEO Giadha Aguirre de Carcer. And added, “We could not be more excited to have partnered with GrowGeneration to gain this unprecedented view into such an interesting market segment.”
Cultivators are getting much more sophisticated at scaling their businesses and navigating the various compliance issues, and this is transferring to the product side as a result. We have seen products taken off the shelves because they did not comply with regulations, and we will see more of that as states get more involved in how the plants are being cultivated and what fertilizers are being used.
GrowGeneration Corp. President & Co-Founder Michael Salaman
It is exciting to see the new innovative products that are coming to market to meet the increasingly nuanced demands of cultivators and consumers. Working with New Frontier Data to take a deep dive into each market category and its industry impact has been illuminating for us, and we are sure it will be for others.
Among the key findings from the report:
- Organics, Nutrients and – to a slightly lesser extent – Pest Control supplies categories have seen the largest percentage growth in 2017.
- Medium and Nutrients consistently drive cultivation supplies revenue, illustrating the delicate balance needed in growing cannabis.
- Lights have the most volatile sales due to their high price points and positioning as one-off purchases.
- Competition amongst brands is intense, with ample opportunity for both smaller and new players to become category and market leaders.
- Since adult-use legalization in 2014, the number of licensed adult-use cultivators in Colorado is growing 33.5% annually, a rate 28x faster than their medical peers.
