Walk-behind mowers have been preferred in the landscaping market largely as they translate to fewer emissions and lower fuel use. These mowers are commonly used to decorate and preserve gardens, lawns, and yards in less than 10,000 square feet of yard area. They are commonly used in industrial and residential gardens, public parks, industry, and institution gardens. Spending on preserving the environment in lawns and gardens is growing in the recent period, which is expected to boost the market for walk-behind mowers.
The ride-on lawn mower market is witnessing a significant rise in demand among professional and semi-professional users worldwide. Increasing diversification coupled with demand for the increase in the equipment inventory's reliability is expected to contribute to a long-term value for professional landscapers. These mowers are used in large and medium-sized lawns, particularly in equestrian establishments, sports stadiums, universities, golf courses, and commercial estate properties. They are particularly popular in Europe, where energy efficiency has long been a part of government measures.
The robotic lawn mowers market in Europe is expected to gain more momentum in the coming years, which, in turn, is predicted to disrupt the adoption rate of walk-behind-mowers. The growing adoption of robotic lawn mowers is expected to affect the market for walk-behind mowers adversely. It is anticipated that domestic robots' growing success and the development in robotics technologies will produce sluggish demand for the walk-behind mower market during the forecast period.
In 2019, the residential end-user segment dominated the market. The market growth spurt is expected to come from the growing adoption of robotic lawn mowers in the US and the UK. Though robotic variants initially struggled to make a presence among households in these countries, these units have silently penetrated the households. Several vendors have been offering tailor-made products suited to these regions. Factors such as storage, portability, performance, and safety are the deciding factors for residential end-users.
Key factors driving the professional/commercial segment's growth include innovations, legislation, technological advances, change in consumer behaviors, and purchasing culture. Increasing innovations such as mobile-based services enable landscapers to perform operations effectively. Companies can collaborate with virtual & interactive landscape design software companies to add more value to their products. This allows companies to remain competitive in the market and maximize their profits. North America is one of the most urbanized landscapes globally, specifically in the US and Canada. Rapid urbanization in the region drives the focus on maintaining biodiversity and the fragile eco-system. Thus, the popularity of landscaping in this region fuels the growth of the commercial lawn mower market.
Gas-powered lawn mowers dominated the market with shares of over 79% and 69% in revenue and unit shipment, respectively, in 2019. The increasing demand for lawn and yard landscaping is expected to expand the segment during the forecast period. The electric-powered lawn mower segment is likely to grow owing to the increasing demand for eco-friendly lawn mowers during the forecast period. Hybrid mowers are expected to gain popularity with the combination of battery and engine-powered technology and gas and battery-powered technology due to the existent noise and emission challenges expected to increase in the future. While battery will be the main source of power, small combustion engines are expected to supplement power alternative fuel, and power sources such as propane and solar will become mainstream. Technology such as digital electronic ignition and electronic fuel injection (EFI) are being incorporated in liquid-cooled units instead of air-cooled units as they have operating temperatures that are a lot more consistent.
While gas-powered and electric mowers have been around for the longest time, battery-powered mowers are relatively new. The preferred source of power is usually dependent on the land's size to be mowed and the environment. Gas-powered equipment has been conventionally used globally and is de-facto pieces of equipment used by landscapers as they are versatile. However, electric and battery-powered mowers are limited to specific models and find a high adoption in developed countries.
The global manual drive lawn mower segment is expected to reach $1.22 billion by 2025. Europe and North America are expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. The global RWD lawn mower market is likely to reach $15.73 billion by 2025. The application of rear-wheel drives to perform mowing uphill, and side-hills is expected to influence the segment growth. In terms of unit shipments, the FWD segment is expected to reach 15.11 million units by 2025. FWD drive mowers can have better maneuverability than AWD and RWD mowers. A front-wheel-drive is ideally suited to flat terrain with no barriers, including trees. Europe and APAC are likely to grow at the highest CAGRs during the forecast period. The AWD segment of the global lawn mower market witnessed shipments of 9.22 million units in 2019. The shipments are expected to reach 12.26 million units by 2025, growing at a 4.86% CAGR. All-wheel drive mowers (AWD) deliver power to four wheels, ensuring maximum stability up and down hills and over muddy turf. They use an auto propeller control mechanism that automatically detects and adapts for optimum convenience and ease to the users walking pace. In terms of unit shipment, the segment is expected to reach over $12.25 million units by 2025.
The distribution environment is rapidly evolving, with systems and processes being upgraded at a rapid pace. With the lawn mower market being highly time-sensitive, distributors are increasingly focusing on extending their reach to improve the speed to market maintenance parts and services. In 2019, the retail segment contributed to the highest market revenue to the global lawn mower market. The online segment faces strong competition from the retail segment because of the entry of traditional garden equipment vendors in the market, which has increased the visibility of lawn mowers on store shelves across the world. Many retail players such as Sears, OBI, Wal-Mart, Tesco, Best Buy, and Costco have started to stock and showcase their products in their retail outlets, leading to an erosion of the market share of the online segment.
North America is expected to observe a high demand for commercial lawn mowers worldwide. An increasing number of policies and programs focusing on greenery in public spaces are projected to affect the US market significantly.
