Increasing population of homeowners and 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 major contributors to expanding lawns in different households. The European housing sector is increasingly witnessing renovation and refurbishment activities as these are considered to be cost effective. Therefore, home improvement projects are gaining momentum in various European countries, which is expected to expand the presence of lawns in the years to come.

In addition, the rise in home ownership has contributed to the expansion of green space in the residential sector, which is expected to boost demand for walk-behind lawn mowers. In addition, the market in Eastern and Central Europe was characterized by 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 technology that takes less time to charge and lasts longer on a single charge. With sustainable practices integrated into landscapes across Europe, meaningful innovations in battery technology are expected to grow more than ever. Therefore, demand for lithium ion battery from lawn mower suppliers and customers is increasing significantly in the market.

Additionally, lithium-ion battery prices have fallen by around 97% since 1991 and are expected to continue to fall, supporting the demand for battery-powered walk behind lawn mowers in the market. The use of battery systems and battery technology will be a key factor influencing purchasing behavior in the future. The long-life battery has prompted suppliers to add Li-ion batteries to their product range. With the marketing limitation for NiCd cells and the 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.
