A few of the popular marketing trends that will fuel demand for walk-behind lawn mowers during the forecast period include the expanding use of green spaces and green roofs and the rising demand for alternative fuel sources.

Chicago, Aug. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Arizton’s latest research report, Europe walk-behind lawn mowers market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during 2022-2027. The cost of walk-behind lawn mowers across Europe is one of the key growth drivers for the market. These lawn mowers are relatively less expensive than ride-on and robotic lawn mowers due to the use of low-end technology and less engine power. Most of the European population belongs to the middle-income group with low purchasing power. Consequently, the demand for low-cost mowers is high in this market. The penetration of walk-behind lawn mowers is expected to grow in various European countries with a prominent middle-income group, which will propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The introduction of several cutting-edge lawn mowers with fuel-efficient technology and alternative fuels has reduced fuel use, fuel spillage, and fuel theft, which has helped to promote sustainable lawn mowing practices. Several organizations are pressuring European governments to outlaw gasoline-powered outdoor gardening equipment even though many of them have plans to phase out gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2030. To reduce the use of gasoline-powered lawn mowers and the associated carbon emissions, the European walk-behind lawn mowers market is anticipated to rely on the available alternative fuel options.

Rising Population of Homeownership & Home Improvement Projects

In Europe, most adults indulge in creative and purposeful leisure activities. Some consumers also invest in home improvement and maintenance activities, based on their interests. Home improvement and renovation are key contributors to the expansion of lawn areas in various households. The European residential sector is increasingly witnessing renovation and repair activities as these are considered cost-effective. Thus, home improvement projects are gaining momentum in various European countries, which is expected to expand the presence of lawn areas in the upcoming years.

Moreover, the rise in homeownership has contributed to the expansion of green spaces in the residential sector, which is expected to propel the demand for walk-behind lawn mowers. Furthermore, in Eastern and Central Europe, the market witnessed sluggish demand in the residential segment due to the low popularity of garden and lawn beautification among households.

Impact of Development of Lithium-ion Batteries

Customers are increasingly demanding technologies that take less time to charge and last longer on a single charge. With sustainable practices incorporated into landscapes in Europe, meaningful innovations in the space of battery technology are expected to grow more than ever. Therefore, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is rising significantly from the lawn mower vendors and customers in the market.

Also, the prices of li-ion batteries reduced by around 97% since 1991 and is expected to further decline, thereby supporting the demand for battery-based walk-behind lawn mowers in the market. Going forward, the use of battery systems and battery technology will be a major factor influencing purchase behavior. The long-lasting battery has compelled vendors to extend their product range with Li-ion batteries. With the marketing restriction for NiCd cells and lower penetration of NiMH cells, the growth of Li-ion battery technology is more likely to impact the growth and adoption of walk-behind lawn mowers.
