Furthermore, the technological advancements of several companies in outdoor power equipment are also expected to drive market growth. For instance, in February 2020, Robert Bosch GmbH launched Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700, two autonomous lawn mowers. These two connected lawn mowers feature 18 V lithium batteries with brushless DC motors that can cut of medium size gardens up to 700 square meters on a single charge.

The increasing urbanization, disposable income, and infrastructure activities coupled with rising demand for the landscaping services are the factors expected to augment growth of the outdoor power equipment market. Furthermore, growing awareness of environmental issues leads to increasing adoption of the outdoor power equipment using lithium-ion batteries, as they are environment friendly and maximize energy output. Several companies are focused on innovation in lithium-ion batteries. For instance, in 2021, Techtronic's Industries started using red lithium-ion batteries for its cordless power tools, as they work faster and deliver more than expected from the battery's life.

The gardening trend has increased rapidly, mainly among younger generations. Most young people are inclined toward growing vegetables, fruits, and herbs. As young people are more likely to live in smaller yard lots, the type of equipment, plant and tools they require should work in tighter spaces. The gardening and lawn industry is changing to adapt to various consumer requirements by launching equipment that is lighter in weight and makes work comfortable.

Furthermore, the growing popularity of home improvement projects bodes well for the growth of the outdoor power equipment and garden tools market during the forecast period. Companies such as The Toro Company, Husqvarna, ANDREAS STIHL AG & Co. KG, and others gained profits from the stay-at-home trend due to the pandemic, which has extended the gardening season.

The pandemic in 2020 did cast a gloomy outlook on almost all industries, worldwide. The outbreak of COVID-19 impacted market growth during the initial few months of 2020. However, in later months, demand for various outdoor power equipment has witnessed strong growth with the resumption of operations in multiple industries. A considerable increase in the market for Do-it-yourself (DIY) equipment and do-it-for-me (DIFM) services in the commercial and residential segments are expected to drive market growth.

For instance, according to the Outdoor December forecast report in 2021, the commercial lawn mower grew by more than 15.0 % in 2020, with shipping of nearly 7.7 billion units. Furthermore, rising concern about the gasoline fumes and engine noise due to the COVID-19 has also increased the demand for energy-efficient outdoor power equipment.

Although the prospects look promising, the industry is still faced with several challenges regarding high maintenance costs. For accurate operations, one must inspect outdoor power equipment at various intervals. The factors to be reviewed regularly include inspecting cords, checking for damaged switches, sharpening, oiling, and other repairs needed for properly working of the equipment. Hence, the maintenance cost of outdoor power equipment is relatively high, which is expected to hamper the market’s growth.

Power Source Insights

The power source segment has been segregated into gasoline, battery, and electric corded. The gasoline segment accounted for 56.8% market share in 2021and is expected to witness a drop in demand because of gas fumes and noise produced. Various government regulations have been enacted to address gasoline-powered sources' environmental issues. For instance, California is expected to implement laws banning gas-powered chainsaws, lawnmowers, and leaf blowers will be in effect as early as 2024.

Meanwhile, the battery power source segment is estimated to expand at a CAGR exceeding 6.9% during the forecast period. The battery-powered source segment is expanding due to the lower shipping costs, lighter than gasoline alternatives, and is more affordably purchased online. Furthermore, various online retailers are adjusting their inventory to optimize new government rules and regulations for developing electric outdoor power equipment products.

End-use Insights

The end-use segment has been segregated into the commercial and residential sectors. The residential segment accounted for more than 49.37%market share in 2021. The growing inclination of residential users towards investing more time in gardening and outdoor is expected to drive demand for outdoor power equipment. Furthermore, the rising sales of DIY outdoor power equipment due to the pandemic are likely to drive the segment growth.

Global Outdoor Power Equipment Market Size, By Type, 2021 (%)

The commercial segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. The rising number of smart cities owing to increasing urbanization is expected to drive segment growth. According to a report published by World Urbanization Prospects in 2019 by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), the current urban population, which is 55.7%, is anticipated to increase to 68.4% in 2050, globally. Furthermore, with the rising number of golf players coupled with a growing number of golf club facilities, demand for the various outdoor power equipments is expected to increase for the commercial segment.

Equipment Insights

The equipment segment has been segregated into a lawn mower, chainsaw, trimmer & edger, blowers, tiller & cultivators, snow throwers, and others. The chainsaw segment is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. A chainsaw is a handheld, portable mechanical device mainly used to cut wood and wood-related products. The increasing deforestation rate for various infrastructure activities is expected to drive market growth. Furthermore, the rising demand for interior décors such as wood-based flooring, roofing, panels, and more are augmenting the use of chainsaws in various furniture applications.

The lawn mower segment captured the largest market share and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. Several companies are focused on introducing various robotic mowers due to the rising demand for technologically advanced mowers. Furthermore, the latest automated lawn mowers are equipped with GPS tracking and remote controls, making it easier for the user to operate, monitor, and track the mower. In addition, changing consumer behavior in its spending power and aesthetic appeal for their gardening space is also expected to boost the market's growth.

Regional Insights

The North American market accounted for 34.91% share of the overall market in 2021. The regional market’s growth is attributed to North America’s larger geographical area compared to its population, which leads to more gardens and lawns in the region. This led to increased demand for outdoor power equipment in the region. Furthermore, rising investment by the government in infrastructure is expected to drive the region’s growth. For instance, in 2022, the Canadian government provided USD 1.5 billion for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation to expand the rapid housing initiative of building houses.

Outdoor Power Equipment Market Trends by Region

The Asia Pacific market is expected to register a 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period. The significant growth rate of the region is due to rising disposable income and changing lifestyles in various developing countries such as India and China. Furthermore, increasing annual events such as the Indian Premier League (IPL), World Baseball Classic, Asian Games, and various other sports activities are expected to boost the requirement for outdoor power equipment to enhance sports stadiums and fields.
