Rapidly expanding commercial and residential construction sectors, especially in developing countries, owing to the increasing population, is also likely to boost the demand for zero turn mowers. Moreover, increased urbanization is anticipated to propel the growth and maintenance of parks, green spaces, and yards.

A zero turn mower allows to cut grass more efficiently owing to its ability to turn 180 degrees without leaving a circle of uncut grass. These types of mowers are designed to cut the grass twice as fast as compared to traditional lawn tractors, which results in reduced 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 the lawn activities. These aforementioned 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 aforementioned factors, the establishment of sustainable cities and growing commercial construction are also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The high cost of the equipment coupled with high maintenance cost is anticipated to restrain the market growth. Also, the availability of zero turn mowers at lease is likely to hamper the growth of the market for zero turn mowers. However, advancements in technology 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 further expected to spur market growth.
