Increase in home ownership and home improvement projects

In Europe, most adults engage in creative and useful leisure activities. Some consumers also invest in home renovation and maintenance activities, depending on their interests. Home improvement and renovation are key factors in the expansion of lawn areas in various households. The European residential sector is experiencing more and more renovation and repair activities, as these are considered to be profitable. Thus, home improvement projects are gaining momentum in various European countries, which is expected to expand the presence of lawn areas in the coming years.

Additionally, the increase in home ownership has contributed to the expansion of green spaces in the residential sector, which is expected to propel the demand for walk-behind lawn mowers. On the other hand, in Eastern and Central Europe, the market experienced 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 technologies that take less time to charge and last longer on a single charge. With sustainable practices embedded in landscapes across Europe, significant innovations in battery technology are set to flourish more than ever. Hence, the demand for lithium ion batteries is increasing significantly from lawn mower vendors and customers in the market.

In addition, li-ion battery prices have declined by around 97% since 1991 and are expected to decline further, supporting the demand for battery powered lawn mowers in the market. In the future, the use of battery systems and battery technology will be a major factor influencing purchasing behavior. The long battery life has forced vendors to expand their product line with Li-ion batteries. With the market restriction of NiCd cells and the low 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.
