Robotic Lawn Mowers Market- Segmentation
The market research report includes detailed market segmentation by lawn area type, End-users, distribution, technology, and geography. The robotic lawn mowers market by lawn area can be segmented into small, medium, and large-sized types. In 2017, the small-sized robotic lawn mowers market dominated the global market with a share of more than 98% in terms of unit shipment. A majority of households in Europe and the US prefer to buy small-sized mowers as they are suitable for small lawns and yards. Medium-sized and large-sized robotic mowers are mostly used in the commercial sector, including landscaping service firms and soccer and golf course clubs. The medium and Large-sized segments are witnessing slow growth worldwide due to the increase in the landscaping services and usage in commercial and industrial entities such as soccer fields, airports, golf courses, and other sports fields.
In terms of distribution, the robotic lawn mowers market can be segmented into retail and online stores. In 2018, retail sales constituted more than 84% of the distribution model. Although the trend of selling online is increasing, a significant share of distribution takes place through specialty stores. Robotic lawn mower producers harness specialty stores and supermarkets due to personalized customer services.
The distribution environment is rapidly evolving with systems and processes being upgraded at a rapid pace. Changes are spurred by increased competition, rise in digitization, constant disintermediation, and consumerization of expectations.
The robotic lawn mowers market by technology can be segmented into smart and non-smart mowers. In terms of unit shipment, the non-smart robotic lawn mowers market accounted for more than 83% of the overall shipments and occupied the leading position in 2018. Although the segment is expected to witness the growth in its market share during the forecast period due to their low costs, the share of non-smart models is declining due to the increasing popularity of smart robotic mowers. In terms of revenue, the non-smart robotic lawn mowers market accounted for a share of 82.84% of the overall market revenue in 2018. Smart robotic mowers are also witnessing an increase in the market proliferation worldwide.
Based on end-user applications, the robotic lawn mowers market can be segmented into residential users, professional landscaping services providers, and golf courses and others. The residential end-user segment dominated the market in 2018. The market growth spurt is expected to come from rising adoption of robotic lawn mowers in the world’s two largest garden equipment markets – US and UK. Professional landscaping services are growing worldwide. Developed countries such as the US and UK along with emerging economies such as China and India are mainly witnessing robust growth in the demand for commercial landscaping services. Further, the increase in commercial construction and large parks and gardens in these countries has also driven the revenue in the market.
