The global zero turn mowers market size was valued at USD 3.24 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.40 billion in 2023 to USD 5.06 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

Compared to other lawn mowers, a riding zero turn mower (z-t mower) can cut more grass per hour. Each wheel can be independently turned by the unit. Instead of overlapping while turning, the mower stays on the grass that needs to be mowed. Unlike in standard models, the mowing deck of a rider mower is located in front of the machine. Models with zero turns can easily fit into small spaces and cut close to obstacles.

Besides, tractor mowers can be replaced with zero turn mowers. They can move around much more easily, and when used by a skilled user, their ability to get close to objects can minimize the need for a string trimmer. Large lawn spaces are where they work best and will not be useful on a small, average-sized city lawn. Furthermore, a traditional push mower is affordable and useful in smaller grassy areas.


Decrease in Supply and Movement of Raw Materials Hampered the Market Growth

The sudden lockdown announced across nations led suppliers to a stagnant position for a brief period. Major suppliers acknowledged that revenue generation and the 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 disruptions in the supply chain ecosystem, the widespread shutdown of training centers, and other factors.

The severe impact faced by manufacturers was due to slow demand and hampered supply chain and distribution. This 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. However, due to the lack of workforce and current restrictions, companies are unable to provide the required services.

Development in Commercial Construction to Propel Industry Growth

The development of numerous hotels is anticipated to aid the zero turn mowers market growth across the globe. Over 40 new hotels were opened in Europe during Q1 2021. A new office building project in Germany called Markisches Zentrum Redevelopment has been scheduled to be finished in 2023; shopping malls, retail establishments, office buildings, medical facilities, hotels, and residential towers are all part of this project.

Expansion of Smart Cities

The population is adopting smart products as a result of smart city initiatives, raising people’s standard of living. Additionally, it intends to keep an eye on and deal with environmental problems. The main areas of focus for smart city initiatives continue to be energy efficiency and conservation. Initiatives from Abu Dhabi's Economic Plan 2030 are increasingly encouraging sustainability and green living. Furthermore, during the forecast period, the increased investment in smart infrastructure, such as smart buildings, is further driving the market growth.


Technological Advancement in Land Mower Equipment to Fuel the Market Growth

Over the past few years, technology and product advancements have led to a number of changes in zero turn mowers. The development of products with remote controls and GPS capabilities has simplified gardening by making the machinery simple to monitor, track, and control. Additionally, there has been a noticeable increase in consumer interest in gardening activities such as backyard beautification, landscaping, and barbecues. The market is expected to grow significantly as a result of these factors in the coming years.

The growing need for landscaping services combined with the presence of commercial infrastructure properties with expansive lawns is anticipated to support market growth. The mandate for zero turn mowers is anticipated to rise due to the quickly developing residential and commercial construction industries, particularly in developing nations. The development and upkeep of green spaces, yards, and parks is also set to gain pace owing to increased urbanization. Accordingly, it is anticipated that the aforementioned factor will considerably favor market growth.


Concerns Regarding Roll Over and Increasing Emphasis on Air Pollution May Impede the Market Growth

Regardless of the many applications that z-t mowers provide, there are definite disadvantages affecting the growth of this market. If the slope of a field angle is greater than 10 degrees, these are not 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 and 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.
