"Catapult Your Business to Fore, Gain Competitive Advantage "
The global zero turn mowers market size was USD 3.02 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with mowers witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of 4.8% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.17 billion in 2021 to USD 4.64 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.6% in the 2021-2028 period. The rise in the CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.
Zero-turn mowers are effective in landscaping gardens, with their zero-turning radius feature and hydraulic-speed-control drive wheel. The global market is anticipated to grow exponentially over the forecast period owing to the rising demand for outdoor power and lawn equipment. Also, the development of golf courses around the world is becoming the key growth factor for the market as this equipment offers an exemplary level of grass cutting required for golfing. As per the secondary study, there are 209 golfing countries globally, out of which 101 countries have active on-ongoing golf projects.
COVID-19 Pandemic: Reduced Supply and Movement of Raw Materials to Hinder Growth
The sudden lockdown announced across nations has led suppliers to a stagnant position for a brief period. The major suppliers acknowledged that revenue generation and working of their businesses require in-person contact to complete the sales process. Also, the delivery of mowing systems and conducting training in some cases emerged as a challenging factor for vendors owing to the disruptions in the supply chain ecosystem, the widespread shutdown of training centers, and others.
The companies are giving priority to the health and well-being of their customers and associates and hence are taking adequate and essential precautions to safeguard both. As per present government guidelines, manufacturing processes can continue with a limited workforce, and therefore, production has regained its pre-pandemic momentum. With welfare and safety being the top priority, companies review their measures in compliance with governmental advice and best practices.
The severe impact that the manufacturers are facing is due to slow demand and hampered supply chain and distribution. This has impacted the backlogged production schedule, irregular flow of raw materials from suppliers, and a variable supply rate to the end-users. The dealer networks are open for maintenance, repairs, and services, but due to the lack of workforce and current restrictions, the companies are unable to provide the required services.

Increasing Advancements in Technology and Operations is a Vital Market Trend
Z-T mower manufacturers are increasingly investing in advancements of operation and technology. Operator comfort while mowing is a crucial aspect to increase the efficiency of the mowers. This necessitates the installation of better suspensions & comfortable seating, which are growing in popularity as they offer smooth rides and yet sustain the mowing quality. Moreover, combining both the green elements and the hardscape in lawns allows more maneuverability options within mixed surroundings. Users are favoring the swift on/ off feature and the maneuverability around tighter spaces are aiding the increased adoption of these mowers.
Furthermore, digital apps and website options for maintaining, operating, and managing mowing equipment are gaining interest from end-users. This helps operators in checking maintenance history, parts status, landscaper efficiency, etc. Hence, advanced technologies are expected to pervade the market.
Besides, as costs fluctuate and demand increases in the coming years, present add-on features might become a standard on a zero-turn mower. This includes features such as electrical adapters, lights, and no-flat tires, along with other maintenance-free features. However, despite these convenience features, companies are still improving their products by enhancing the ergonomics and similar areas, which will reduce the operator’s fatigue.
Maneuverability Range & Reduced Mowing Time of Zero Turn Mowers to Fuel the Market
The maneuverability range of zero turn machines enables easy movement around flower beds, trees, and other hindrances in the yard, making them easier to operate than riding a regular lawn tractor. These save time by reducing the back and forward movements, along with lowering many loops around bushes. Hence, compared to the standard lawn tractors, these z-turn mowers save lots of time.
These machines save time with their ability to rotate around fast, along with making tight turns while mowing. Besides, most of these have customized fabricated decks designed to cut faster than lawn tractors. The fabricated deck improves the linear cutting speed and, with the higher-priced units, thereby significantly saving a lot of mowing time. For instance, a standard lawn tractor mows at an average speed of 3 – 4 meters/ hour, whereas zero turn mowers’ cutting speed starts at ~3 – 5 meters/ hour. Besides, in the higher-priced machines, the mowing speed can increase to 6 – 8 meters/ hour.
Concerns Regarding Roll Over & Increasing Emphasis on Air Pollution May Impede Zero Turn Mowers Market Growth
Regardless of the many applications that z-t mowers provide, there are definite disadvantages affecting the growth of this market. Firstly, if the slope of a field angle is greater than 10 degrees, these aren’t safe for use as they could rollover. Also, mowing on wet terrain also raises the chances of sliding or losing control, damaging the lawn owing to its weight.
Besides, lawn mowers & their gas-powered engines contribute considerably to air pollution, particularly the older models without the catalytic converting devices. As per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), operating a gas-powered mower for an hour generates hydrocarbons equivalent to driving a car for about 200 miles, or 321 kilometers. Hence, the EPA has established stringent rules & regulations, including installing catalytic converters in smaller engines that can decrease emissions and cut fuel waste.
