Lawn and Garden Robots

Featuring 25 tables and 16 figures – now available in Excel and Powerpoint!

This study examines the US market for lawn and garden robots. Robots, for the purposes of this study, are considered autonomous, meaning they are able to function independently of human interaction. Remote-controlled equipment, although sometimes called robotic, is not included in the demand estimates in this study, but the equipment is discussed within the study.

Robot Lawn Mower

Historical data for 2012, 2017 and 2018 and forecasts for 2022 and 2027 for sales at the manufacturers’ level are given in current dollar terms (which are not adjusted for inflation). Sales are also provided in unit terms.

Sales are presented by the following product types:

  • robotic lawn mowers
  • other lawn and garden robots, including those used for snow blowing, weeding, and gardening

Other lawn and garden robots also include multifunctional robots. Although watering products are included in the other category, for the purposes of this study, products that are add-ons to sprinkler systems or irrigation lines are excluded.

Robots designed for use in agricultural settings are excluded from the scope of this study.

Robotic lawn mowers

Robotic lawn mowers are autonomous mowing power equipment designed for use in residential or commercial applications.

Other Lawn & Garden Robots

Other lawn and garden robots include autonomous power equipment used in lawn and garden applications other than mowing. Some applications include snow blowing, weeding, and gardening. In addition, multifunctional robots are included in this category.

Residential

Consists of sales of lawn and garden robots to homeowners and other individuals for private use (i.e., not for commercial purposes). Residential landscaping that is paid for by building owners or occupants and carried out by professionals is considered commercial.

Commercial

Comprises lawn and garden robot purchases made by businesses for use in commercial or government applications. While government applications typically entail maintenance of public buildings, grounds, and roadways, businesses’ use of power lawn and garden equipment can take a wide variety of forms, including residential landscaping, commercial building maintenance, and upkeep of sports venues (e.g., golf courses).
