Lawn and garden equipment manufacturers offer a wide range of products designed to help homeowners and businesses maintain green spaces. According to manufacturer data, this industry is experiencing growth, and new opportunities are opening up as manufacturers embrace tech innovations.

Overview of the Lawn and Garden Equipment Industry

The lawn and garden equipment industry had a strong year in 2021 with a year-on-year growth rate of 2.17%. Experts are predicting a promising outlook with a CAGR of 2.85% from 2020 to 2025.1 The demand comes from a mix of residential customers, golf courses and commercial applications.

This growth is associated with a fragmentation of the market as new players appear. A few giants, like John Deere or Honda, account for the higher rate of public companies compared to other sectors, but there are also many smaller businesses.
