Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A major trend that the global sports turf market is going to witness is ongoing technological innovations. Intense competition and high demand for quality playing surfaces have led to the creation of third-generation artificial turf that imitates the look of natural grass. The third-generation artificial turf has advantages, for instance, safety, increased frequency of usage, and longer playing sessions.” According to the report, one of the major drivers in the global sports turf market is the growth in sales of artificial turf. Artificial grass is low-maintenance as it does not require irrigation, mowing, trimming, watering, and pesticides or fertilizers, which gradually saves the cost for users. Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the global sports turf market is health issues. Artificial turf retains more heat, so the chances of burns and injuries for players are higher than with natural grass.
