MENDHAM, N.J. – Specialty Products Consultants, LLC (SPC) has undertaken its tenth syndicated study of the professional pest control market in the United States. The impact of the Great Recession on the structural pest control industry will be thoroughly analyzed in A Strategic Analysis of the U.S. Structural Pest Control Market – The 2009 Season.
The U.S. structural pest control industry generated more than $6.59 billion in service revenue in 2008. “The market for professional pest control services has long been considered to be ‘recession resistant,’ said Gary Curl, President of SPC. “The 2009 season industry analysis will examine the resiliency of that theory.” Additionally, the study will examine the expanding importance of professional bed bug control to the industry this past year and beyond.
The 2009 Season market study will involve telephone and on-line interviews with more than 800 owners or managers of professional pest control operations across the country. The Olson Research Group, working in conjunction with SPC, will conduct the interviews. The report will measure the sales and usage of leading brands of pest control products in the professional pest control market. Additionally, end-users will be queried about the impact of the economy on their pest control service revenue and the changes made in their service practices given the Great Recession experienced this past year.
