The US commercial lawn mower industry is divided into five major segments - product types, end-user types, fuel types, other types, and drive type.

The ride-on segment dominated the US commercial lawnmowers market in 2018

The ride-on segment dominated the US market with a market share of 70% in terms of revenue in 2018. The increasing demand for professional landscaping services in the US is driving the demand for ride-on mowers, thereby gaining significant market revenue during the forecast period. Contractors are largely using ride-on mowers to increase general efficiency as they also help with spreading fertilizers and grass seeds. These mowers are popular among urban, heavy-duty commercial users such as industrial ones. They offer a slew of features such as keyless ignition, real-time feedback, and airless tires features. Electric ride-on mowers are becoming popular in the US due to increased focus of regulatory bodies on energy efficiency in garden equipment. Grasshopper has featured iso-mounted footrest and seat, multi-point suspension, shock absorbing modular frames that maximize power delivery to the deck and combat the challenges of vibrations. Zero-turn mowers have rapidly gained an affinity with golf course maintenance personnel and landscapers in the past couple of years due to the need for high productivity and capabilities of handling varied terrains. The segment was valued at $645 million in 2018.

The electric-powered lawnmowers segment is growing due to high demand for eco-friendly products

The replacement of gas-powered mowers with electric-powered mowers results in approximately 40% reduction of carbon dioxide and 99% decrease in carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and methane levels in the atmosphere. Thus, end-users of landscaping services are demanding the use of electric-corded and cordless mowers. Newly constructed office buildings, heritage sites, botanical gardens, universities, shopping centers, and housing facilities are the major end-users of electric lawn mowers. They have become popular in spaces such as green roofs as well as steep slopes and undulated terrains as they are lightweight easy to maneuver and portable. John Deere’s TurboStar system guarantees better efficiency, especially when grass mowing is sought at low heights. This is due to an integrated fan that increases airflow around the blade, thereby creating a powerful vacuum that efficiently bags grass clippings, improving the look of the cut. Battery-powered mowers are particularly popular due to the convenience and usability they offer. Advanced developments are expected to continue at a rapid pace. For instance, Husqvarna is investing in developing the concept of a connected battery with Bluetooth connectivity in their lawn mowers.
