CLEVELAND, May 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Freedonia Group projects demand for battery-powered lawn and garden equipment to continue to outpace the overall market and increase its share of sales through 2024, rising 10% annually:
- Sales of electric products have grown faster in recent years, spurred by technological advances that have made these products more competitive with traditional engine-driven equipment performance.
- New introductions in battery-powered equipment last longer, are more powerful, and charge faster than their predecessors. This, along with their strong environmental profile – no emissions, energy savings, and lower noise – is driving more consumers to invest in these products.
- As product development continues, more commercial end users will adopt electrically powered products for similar reasons as consumers – but the higher performance requirements of most professional applications remain a hurdle to broader penetration in the nonresidential market.
Competition from International Combustion Engine (ICE) Equipment
While battery-powered products are expected to become increasingly competitive with engine-driven equipment in many applications, this will be offset to an extent by technological improvements in engine-driven equipment, including innovations aimed at improving:
- fuel efficiency
- emissions reduction
- vibration levels
While demand growth for engine-driven products will trail that of electric equipment, ICE equipment will continue to account for the majority of sales in 2024. Rising demand for large, high-value commercial products such as riding mowers and turf and grounds equipment will benefit suppliers in this segment in particular, as commercial users generally require equipment that runs on gasoline or diesel to provide adequate power and run times.
