Global Grass Trimmer Market 2017-2021
About Grass Trimmer
The grass trimmer equipment can be classified into three segments: gas-based, electric, and cordless (battery-operated). The gas-based trimmers are the most widely used grass trimmers in the world. Their adoption rate is high in commercial areas such as landscape areas, golf courses, and government establishments. The grass trimmers used in professional landscaping are equipped with more steel in their design to get heavy work done, making them costlier than electric grass trimmers. Electric grass trimmers are widely used in residential areas due to their light weight, better maintenance, less noise, and easy affordability. Cordless (battery-powered) grass trimmers eliminate the drawback of limited movement of the gas-based and electric trimmers.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global grass trimmer market to grow at a CAGR of 4.27% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Grass Trimmer Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global grass trimmer market: Husqvarna, Robert Bosch, STIHL, The Toro Company, and MTD.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Stanley Black & Decker, Home Depot Product Authority, Makita, Emak, Blount International, American Honda Motor, Deere & Company, GreenWorks Tools, and Zomax.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is introduction of interchangeable batteries. Cordless (battery-operated) grass trimmers are gaining popularity all over the world for their innovative features, which include easy mobility, light weight, high power, and zero fume emission characteristics. However, several consumers face problems with the battery time, as the equipment can run only for a maximum of 15-20 minutes. Additionally, users have to wait for more than three hours for the battery to be recharged and use the equipment again.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Fall in fuel prices. Gas-based grass trimmers form the largest part of the global grass trimmer market due to the high power and efficiency that they provide to the user. They also help complete heavy-duty work with ease. As gas-based grass trimmers are completely reliant on fuels, any change in fuel prices can impact the sales of these trimmers. In recent times, oil prices have deteriorated drastically around the world, leading to an increase in people buying gas-based grass trimmers, thereby impacting the market positively.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Advent of synthetic grass and sports turfs. The introduction of artificial grass turf poses a major threat to the market. An artificial grass turf does not require mowing, fertilizing, and watering like natural grass. Artificial grass retains its color and shape for more than five years, after which it can be easily replaced. It is becoming immensely popular as it saves maintenance cost and investment in garden and lawn equipment.
