As much attention as electric cars get, another growing segment of e-mobility can also be found in the garage – specifically, lawnmowers.
Lawn care equipment is an area of low-hanging fruit when it comes to reducing emissions and operating, as it still remains largely dirty and unregulated. Many lawn care motors don’t even have the barest semblance of emissions equipment and have been allowed to spew those emissions into the air without any regulation.
However, as more and more people take notice of electric vehicles, so too are they noticing the advantages of electrified lawn equipment, including robotic lawnmowers, trimmers, leaf blowers, and more. Not only are they cheaper to operate and better for the environment, but they are also straight-up cleaner and more convenient. There is no fuel to store, mix, or spill for that matter, and all you need to do is plug it in and you’re good to go.
Because of this, the global electric lawn mowers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.18% during 2022-2027, according to ResearchAndMarkets. The electric walk-behind lawn mower market alone is expected to grow by about $1.3 billion by 2027, and the revenue of robotic electric mowers should hit nearly $4 billion. For many people, their first electric “vehicle” might just be a lawn mower – and that’s definitely a case of the grass being green.
