The global market for robotic lawn mowers is expected to reach $1.3 billion in 2020, growing at an annual rate of more than 12 percent during the period 2019-2025.
The is according to a study by Research and Markets called Insights on the Robotic Lawn Mowers Global Market to 2025.
The year-on-year growth of robotic lawnmowers will be in the double-digit due to the high demand from Europe, North America, and APAC, coupled with the rise in awareness of these devices in developing countries.
The market demand will be fueled by the growth of the residential sector in these regions. The US and the UK incline to improve an aesthetic appeal through landscaping.
Therefore, the demand for professional landscaping services is growing. As robotic lawnmowers appropriately appeal to a more niche target audience, the market has witnessed growth to pre-recessionary levels. In developed countries, the increase in the construction industry will contribute to the demand for robotic lawnmowers.
The global supply chain of garden products, finished goods, parts, and accessories has been facing disruptions owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. OEMs depend on a complex global supply chain, which is mostly centered around China.
Although garden product manufacturers keep sufficient inventories of lawnmowers and related accessories, and markets such as the US are witnessing stable demand in garden machinery despite the pandemic, the overall impact of Covid-19 on the robotic lawn mower market remains low.
Insights by geography
The European robotic lawn mower market is expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2025. The presence of several large and small-sized companies in the landscaping industry for construction and the design of landscaping maintenance equipment will offer stronger competition among the players.
Europe, which is considered as one of the largest and leading in the gardening equipment segment, is mainly expected to be driven by commercial end-users that are profoundly increasing the usage of these machines in their respective businesses.
Companies are expected to use robust ground management equipment, increasing the need for landscaping services in the area. A growing number of commercial spaces, with the number of public parks and lawn areas, is also boosting the demand for robotic lawn equipment in the region.
Insights by vendors
The global robotic lawn mower market share is moderately fragmented with many local and international players. The competition among these players is intense.
The rapidly changing technological environment could adversely affect vendors as customers expect continual innovations and upgrades in technical garden equipment such as robotic lawnmowers.
The present scenario is forcing vendors to alter and refine their unique value proposition to achieve a strong market presence.
Husqvarna, MTD Products, Robert Bosch, STIGA, and ZCS are the key leading vendors. The competition among these key players is intense, with the leading 50 companies account for 90 percent of the share.
