The lawn mower market in the UK is divided into five major segments - product types, fuel types, end-user types, drive types, and others.

Walk-behind mowers to capture the highest revenue in the lawn mower market in the UK

The walk-behind mowers segment is likely to dominate the market in terms of revenue as well as unit shipment during the forecast period. These mowers consume less fuel with low emission levels. The operator controls and the cut quality are the two main focuses that are predominantly being developed in the lawn mower market in the UK. In terms of cut quality, vendors have constantly been improving their deck designs to enhance clipping dispersal, reduce scalping, and improve airflow. Snapper Pro and Ferris offer a cruise control bar, which enables the operator to set the speed and also allow overrule it with thumb controls.

The alternative fuel use and fuel-injected engines in walk-behind mowers are expected to gain momentum in the future in the lawn mower market in the UK.

Commercial-grade mid-sized mowers are growing to become a preferred size as they cover decently large areas and are less heavy. They are particularly popular among residential users and contractors serving high traffic areas such as golf clubs and stadiums and approaches due to the superior cut and the lack of compaction that benefits an already highly-compacted turf owing to golfers and players treading the lawn.
