A gradual shift from the traditional hand-guided mowers to automatic electric mowers is further expected to spur product sales. The increasing importance of landscaping coupled with backyard beautification is also anticipated to trigger product sales. As backyard cookouts and garden parties continue to become more popular, it is anticipated that the demand for gardening equipment will grow, thereby spurring the sale of lawn mowers.

Improvement in the social lifestyle of an increasing base of the affluent middle-class population is a key factor driving gardening as a hobby. Moreover, the rise in home decoration in new housing projects coupled with rebound in the home remodeling activity is projected to drive the demand for these products over the forecast period. 

Product Insights

Electric lawn mowers emerged as the leading product category in 2016 and accounted for over 30% of the overall revenue share. However, the robotic product segment is projected to witness high growth over the forecast period owing to the surging adoption of these products in the developed regions.

The increasing usage of electric-powered products is due to growing environmental concerns coupled with high fuel prices linked with tools powered by ICEs. Furthermore, increased versatility is another factor spurring electric mower sales. The usage of terrain-specific gardening equipment is vital in order to achieve cost efficiency and convenience. Moreover, geographical variations play a crucial role in deciding the equipment performance. Manufacturers of electric tools are increasingly designing equipment with enhanced flexibility.

However, a gradual shift towards advanced products is expected to offer several avenues to the robotic products market. This equipment is projected to replace traditional manual lawn care tools. The former operates quietly and autonomously and is specially designed to save both time and money. It requires minimum human intervention and can be easily programmed to function even from smartphones. Thus, evolving technologies enhancing the adoption of lawn mowers are expected to spur market growth over the forecast period.

End-use Insights

The global demand for lawn mowers is anticipated to grow owing to rising applications across the residential and commercial/government sectors. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of robotic equipment across numerous residential projects globally is also anticipated to play a key role in driving the demand for these products over the next eight years.

The residential sector is expected to emerge as the largest end-use segment. One of the primary reasons driving growth is the rapid development and investments, which are being carried out in the construction sector around the world. An upsurge in the demand for landscaping services in the U.S. coupled with a rise in the residential development in Asia Pacific is projected to spur the demand for lawn mowers over the forecast period.

The increasing need to maintain government facilities, such as public parks, roadside areas, churches, and schools, makes it important to adopt garden care equipment for the maintenance of gardens. Moreover, sports fields, cricket grounds, spaces for table tennis, and golf courses require constant care, which is fulfilled with the help of these gardening tools. 

Regional Insights

North America held the largest market share in 2016. However, Asia Pacific is projected to exhibit the highest growth over the forecast period. Growing urbanization in this region has led to a rise in housing activity, which is expected to spur garden care products. Upcoming events such as Olympics 2020 in Asia necessitate the enhancement of an aesthetic appeal. This subsequently triggers the usage of these products as an efficient gardening tool.

Furthermore, the backyard beautification trend is on the rise in North America, and hence, it is expected to drive the adoption of lawn care equipment. Moreover, the increasing usage of robotic products for gardening in Europe is anticipated to increase the overall revenue generated from mower sales. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of landscaping services to enhance residential and commercial spaces is a key factor spurring the growth of the lawn mowers market.

It is increasingly found that a busier lifestyle in developed regions makes it difficult for people to find the time to tend to their gardens. In such situations, robotic tools assist in the maintenance of residential gardens. The autonomy of these technologically advanced devices aid end users in reducing the time consumed to undertake weekly mowing chores.
