New York, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Global Self Propelled Lawn Mowers Market – Comprehensive Study & Strategic Analysis 2022-2027” – /p06361825/?utm_source=GNW
Also, these mowers are powered by transmission and do not require manual strength, which is expected to propel their demand in the global market. The continuous investments by vendors in R&D activities have made self-propelled mowers more user-friendly. For instance, most self-propelled mowers are equipped with automatic choke recovery systems that help start the cold engine without choking. Also, there have been several developments in features such as height adjustments, speed control, discharge bag attachments, and others. Hence, such advancements are supporting the global self-propelled lawn mowers market.

The pollution from gasoline-powered self-propelled lawn mowers, and other lawn and garden machinery impacts the climate; as a result, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is tightening emission requirements for compact motors such as those found in lawn mowers. Also, companies are looking for alternative fuel sources for mowers to reduce air and noise pollution. Hence, such factors will propel the demand for battery-powered self-propelled lawn mowers in the market during the forecast period. However, factors such as water shortages, growing usage of artificial grass, and increasing demand for robotic lawn mowers due to the rising inclination towards technology-driven products are expected to create hurdles in the self-propelled lawn mowers market growth during the forecast period.


Rising Demand for Home Ownership & Home Improvement

• The changing lifestyle needs are one of the key factors driving the demand for home improvements worldwide. The increasing income and standard of living are boosting the single residential ownership rates globally. According to US Census Bureau, the homeownership rate across the US increased from 64.2% in Q4 2017 to 65.5% in Q4 2021. In 2020, the average home improvement spending across the US was more than $8,300. Hence, such expansion of home ownership and home improvements is leading to the growth of landscaping services and, thus, the demand strengthening the self-propelled lawn mowers market.

Growing Landscaping Industry

• The growing need to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the lawns & gardens in residential and commercial areas is boosting the demand for landscaping services globally. The construction of decorative structures, ponds, patios, and green winding paths is gaining traction worldwide in the outdoor landscaping market. Also, the growing US economy and the rising demand for new homes and offices indirectly expand the landscaping facilities, increasing the need for self-propelled lawnmowers. Investments to beautify and enhance parks and gardens in public, residential, and commercial areas are projected to increase over the next four years, thereby boosting the demand for landscaping services and the global self-propelled lawn mowers market.
Low Upfront Cost as Compared to Riding Mowers
• The cost of self-propelled lawn mowers is one of the key factors driving the demand for the product in the market. These lawn mowers are less expensive than ride-on and robotic lawn mowers due to low-end technology and less engine power.

The average cost of self-propelled gasoline

Mowers range between USD 170-2,000, while battery-powered self-propelled mowers cost USD 340-850. Most people prefer buying self-propelled lawnmowers due to their low cost, thereby supporting the overall self-propelled lawnmowers market growth.



The gasoline-powered segment is estimated to witness an absolute growth of 38.87% compared to 2021 in the global self-propelled lawn mowers market. However, battery-powered lawn mowers are expected to observe the highest growth rates.

The rising consumer awareness about sustainability and environmental emissions is expected to boost the demand for the battery-powered self-propelled lawn mowers market. The segment is expected to witness an absolute growth of 50.33% from 2021-2027. Moreover, the Li-ion batteries offer various social and financial benefits driving their popularity among commercial projects and municipalities.
