Greenery is not only associated with places to cultivate plants but also with places for people to relax, focus, and connect with nature and one another. Today, gardening can provide many mental health benefits for our daily life. This market is mainly fueled by the increased demand for landscaping services to make their houses more aesthetically beautiful and for commercial users to improve the appearance of their properties. OPE such as lawn mowers, blowers, hedge trimmers, and saws are used in various landscaping operations such as lawn maintenance, hardscaping, lawn renovation, tree care, organic or natural lawn care, and snow removal in the landscaping sector.
The development of urban lifestyle, and outdoor equipment, such as landscaping and gardening, has witnessed a boom in demand. With the rapid growth of the economy, it is expected that roughly 70% of the world's population will reside in or near cities, resulting in a variety of urbanization activities. As a result, rising urbanization will raise demand for smart cities and green spaces, new buildings and upkeep of public green spaces and parks, and equipment purchases. In this context, various companies such as Makita Corporation are providing alternatives to gas equipment to meet the growing demand with continuous development of cordless OPE system, with around 50 products in the segment for making the tools handy and easy to use along with sustainable solution that fulfills the needs of the aging population.
Increasing Focus on Technological Advancements to Support Market Expansion
OPE is often powered by gasoline engines, electric motors, or battery-powered motors and is used for lawn, landscaping, garden, golf course, or ground care. Due to the development of remote working, fluctuating gas prices, and focus on environmental protection, battery-powered equipment is witnessing one of the most extreme demands across diverse locations. Key market participants are advocating for more ecologically and user-friendly products and to provide clients with the best possible solution.

High Maintenance Costs of Equipment and Fluctuating Raw Material Prices May Hinder the Market Growth
With rising infrastructure and urbanizations, OPE comprises tools widely used among household and commercial tools to maintain their spaces and achieve the smart and greener city concept. Equipment such as lawn mowers and trimmers are precision instruments. Many Outdoor Power Equipment parts, such as motors, air, and fuel filters, require routine maintenance. OPE must be recalibrated at regular intervals for exact operations. Sharpening, oiling, replacing parts, and other repairs are required for optimal tool operation. As a result, maintaining Outdoor Power Equipment is quite expensive.
Consumers in developing countries are unwilling to spend significant money on equipment maintenance since garden-keepers are relatively cheaper. These maintenance and repair requirements also raise the cost of ownership of heavy outdoor machinery. Also, the availability of most of the large size equipment at lease can directly or indirectly affect the Outdoor Power Equipment market growth in the coming years for developing nations. Although, the technological advancement and presence of production base in different regions help reduce product prices to optimum levels.
Lawn Mowers Type to Hold Dominant Market Share Due to Increase in Gardening Activities
