Power Lawn & Garden Equipment

As Quoted In Hardware + Building Supply

Growth in the single-family housing stock and the number of landscaping firms, coupled with technological innovations to battery-powered products and robotic lawnmowers, will fuel US demand for these products.

US demand to grow 3.2% per annum through 2019

US demand for power lawn and garden equipment is expected to rise 3.2 per-cent per year to $11.7 billion in 2019. Growth is forecast to slow somewhat compared to the gains seen over the 2009-2014 period, when the more rapid advances reflected the beginning of a recovery from a sharply reduced 2009 base. Through 2019, gains will be supported by accelerating growth in the single-family housing stock and the number of landscaping establishments, which will result in increased demand for both consumer and commercial grade equipment. Sales will also benefit from ongoing technological innovations, including improvements to battery-powered products that allow for longer run times and faster recharging.

Sales of power lawn and garden equipment rebounded in all US regions during the 2009-2014 period from a low 2009 base, though demand in the West was restrained by drought conditions, which resulted in below average gains. The South accounts for the largest share of demand, with 38 percent of total sales in 2014. The region benefits from a generally warm climate and rapid growth in population and housing stock.

Turf & grounds equipment to post strong advances

Sales of consumer grade lawnmowers will benefit from the expansion in the housing stock, supporting demand for both new and replacement lawnmowers. Value gains will be boosted by growing consumer interest in higher-end models, such as riding mowers, electric types, and those that feature self-propulsion. Although robotic lawnmowers are ex-pected to remain a niche product in the residential market through the forecast period, sales will triple through 2019 as the number of product offerings grows and prices begin to come down. Turf and grounds equipment (e.g., commercial mowers, turf tractors, and other turf care products) will post some of the fastest gains as the number of landscaping establishments continues to climb and existing firms expand their fleets. Lawn-mowers and turf and grounds equipment, the two largest product segments, will combine to account for over half of value gains through 2019. Smaller seg-ments such as hedge trimmers, blowers, sweepers and vacuums are also forecast to register above average growth as landscaping establishments expand and replace equipment and as commercial users become more confident in higher value, battery-powered models.

Commercial market gains to outpace residential

The residential market accounts for the majority of power lawn and garden equipment sales. Gains will mainly stem from expansion of the market as the housing stock increases. Additionally, an ongoing focus on outdoor spaces will continue to aid demand for a variety of power lawn and garden equipment. Gains in the commercial market are expected to outpace those in the residential market, driven by accelerating growth in the number of landscaping establishments as more homes and businesses outsource these services.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $10 billion US power lawn and garden equipment industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by market (e.g., residential, commercial), product (e.g., lawnmowers; turf and grounds equipment; trimmers and edgers; garden tractors and rotary tillers; chainsaws; blowers, vacuums and sweepers; snow throwers; hedge trimmers), power source, and region. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 36 industry competitors, including Deere, MTD Products, and Husqvarna.
