Sustainable consumption is gaining momentum among consumers in the lawn mowers market. As a result, there is an increasing inclination towards equipment that minimizes harmful emissions, offering significant growth opportunities for battery-powered lawn mowers. Electric lawn mowers also generate less environmental noise compared to gasoline-powered ones, which can cause irreparable hearing damage and disrupt communities in various work environments and schools. Electric lawn mowers, operating at around 75 decibels, are comparatively less harmful than gasoline-powered ones that exceed 85 decibels.
Governments in several countries are taking initiatives to encourage the adoption of electric lawn mowers. Measures such as banning the sale of gasoline lawn mowers and offering rebates are being implemented by the US government to promote the sale of electric corded and battery-powered lawn mowers.
Key highlights include the projected addition of USD 1.3 billion in revenue by 2027 from electric walk-behind lawn mowers. Revenue from robotic lawn mowers is expected to reach USD 3.9 billion by 2027, driven by increasing demand for efficiency and effectiveness and rising labor costs in various European countries. The application of electric lawn mowers in golf courses and other sports arenas is also expected to gain momentum due to advancements in battery technology and the development of enhanced ride-on mowers, contributing USD 371 million in revenue by 2027.
The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has led to a continuous rise in gasoline prices across various countries. Developed countries generally have higher gasoline prices compared to developing ones due to government subsidies and taxes. This constant increase in gasoline prices drives consumers towards electric lawn mowers.
Environmental concerns, such as rising carbon emissions and climate change, are significant global issues. Sustainable living practices are essential for preserving the environment, and growing consumer awareness is driving the usage of electric lawn mowers. Traditional two-stroke gasoline engines are highly inefficient and emit various air pollutants, including carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, methane, and ethanol. Additionally, the increasing air pollution problem in developing countries offers substantial growth opportunities for electric lawn mowers in the market.

Walk-behind lawn mowers were the dominant force in the market in 2021. This was mainly due to their affordability and suitability for residential applications, which represents a significant end-user segment for this equipment.
As technology advances, there has been a shift in the power sources used for operating lawn mowers. Traditional electric corded mowers are being replaced by battery-powered ones, which offer a hassle-free mowing experience without the inconvenience of cables. Additionally, modern lithium-ion batteries are lighter in weight and have longer lifespans compared to their nickel-cadmium counterparts.
Residential segments play a crucial role in driving the revenue of electric lawn mowers in the global market. The extensive area of lawns in residential units, particularly in the US and European countries, coupled with the advantages of electric mowers such as cable length and battery run time, contribute to the high demand from residential users.
Europe’s electric lawn mower market is projected to generate an additional revenue of $1.8 billion by 2027. This growth can be attributed to the increasing government initiatives aimed at promoting the adoption of equipment powered by lithium-ion batteries. For instance, the European Union launched the Green Deal initiative in 2019, which focuses on addressing climate change and environmental degradation. Such initiatives provide substantial growth opportunities for electric lawn mower manufacturers by promoting clean energy and technological innovations.
Overall, the market for electric lawn mowers is evolving to meet the demands of residential users. Battery-powered mowers are gaining popularity due to their convenience and improved performance, while government initiatives are encouraging the adoption of environmentally friendly equipment.
In order to maintain a sustainable presence within a highly competitive environment, vendors are making substantial investments to improve battery performance, extend run time, and introduce new features.
