Zero Turn Mower Market Size & Trends

The global zero turn mower market size was valued at USD 2.65 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.6% from 2023 to 2030. Zero-turn mowers have witnessed several developments in terms of technology and products over the past few years. The emergence of remote-controlled and GPS-equipped products has made gardening easier by making the equipment easy to track, monitor, and operate. Additionally, there has been a notable rise in consumer interest in gardening activities, such as landscaping, backyard beautification, and backyard cookouts. These factors contribute to market growth and are further anticipated to drive the market for zero-turn mowers over the coming years. Additionally, the presence of commercial infrastructure properties with large lawns coupled with a growing demand for landscaping services is anticipated to bolster market growth.

U.S. Zero Turn Mower Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Due to the increasing population, rapidly expanding commercial and residential construction sectors, especially in developing countries, will likely boost the demand for zero-turn mowers. Moreover, increased urbanization is anticipated to propel the growth and maintenance of parks, green spaces, and yards. Thus, owing to the abovementioned factor, the demand for zero-turn mowers is expected to rise significantly. However, the rising disposable income and changing lifestyles in developing countries, such as India and China, are also anticipated to fuel the market growth for zero-turn mowers over the forecast period.

A zero-turn mower allows one to cut grass more efficiently, owing to its ability to turn 180 degrees without leaving a circle of uncut grass. These mowers are designed to cut the grass twice as fast as traditional lawn tractors, reducing mowing time. Moreover, zero-turn mowers have faster ground speeds than other types of mowers. High speed reduces the operating time and increases the productivity of lawn activities. These factors have resulted in an increased inclination of end-users towards zero-turn mowers.

A gradual shift from traditional manual tools to technically advanced, automated equipment is likely to generate avenues for the growth of the market for zero-turn mowers. However, zero-turn mowers are widely used to maintain parks, sports fields, and golf courses. Besides the mentioned factors, establishing sustainable cities and growing commercial construction is also expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising awareness about the benefits of green roofs, such as better stormwater management by reducing runoff, energy conservation, and carbon sequestration, has encouraged their adoption over the past few years. Moreover, green roofs provide space for urban agriculture and offer a healthy and aesthetically pleasing environment. These factors are also likely to propel their usage, supporting market development.

The equipment's high and high maintenance costs are anticipated to restrain the market growth. Also, the availability of zero-turn mowers at lease will likely hamper the market growth. However, technological advancements have led to the introduction of zero-turn mowers with several variants and unique features. These developments have been instrumental in driving the demand for zero-turn mowers globally. Furthermore, an emerging trend of covering roofs with small and medium-sized plants and vegetation is expected to spur market growth.

Cutting Width Insights

The cutting width segment has been further segmented into less than 50 inches, 50 to 60 inches, and more than 60 inches. The more than 60 inch segment held a significant market share of 40.4% in 2022 and is estimated to register the largest CAGR of 11.9% over the forecast period. These 60 inch cutting width zero-turn mowers are preferred for commercial applications owing to their higher ground speeds and thus significantly reducing the cutting time. Depending upon the area to be mowed and the length of the grass, different types of zero-turn mowers with cutting widths are preferred.

The 50 to 60 inch segment is estimated to grow significantly during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to consumer interest in gardening activities, such as backyard cookouts, beautification, and landscaping. Moreover, increasing awareness owing to benefits offered by zero-turn mowers and resulting adoption is a significant factor contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, households with medium and large-sized lawns are considering zero-turn mowers to reduce the mowing time.

Application Insights

The commercial segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 58.9% in 2022 and is estimated to register at the fastest CAGR of 11.5% over the forecast period. Increasing investments by government and public bodies in beautifying public spaces, such as existing parks and yards near historical monuments, will drive the product demand in this end-use segment.

Global Zero Turn Mower Market share and size, 2022

The residential segment is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% over the forecast period. The growing inclination of household owners towards gardening considered a leisure activity, is anticipated to propel the segment growth. Moreover, changing lifestyles and increased urbanization are favorably impacting segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest market share of 36.8% in 2022. One of the major reasons for the expected growth is the rise in the number of landscaping activities coupled with the number of golf courses in the region. North America has a well-developed landscaping and lawn care industry, creating a significant demand for efficient, high-quality mowing equipment. Professional landscapers, commercial property owners, and homeowners in North America strongly emphasize maintaining well-manicured lawns and landscapes. The demand for zero-turn mowers, known for their maneuverability and time-saving capabilities, aligns well with the needs of this industry.

Zero Turn Mower Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is projected to demonstrate growth at the highest CAGR of 12.7% over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the rising construction activities in emerging economies such as China and India. Europe is also expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing popularity of urban gardening in the region is one of the major factors driving the zero turn mowers market.
