High Adoption of Artificial Grass in Various Sports Tournaments is Driving the Global Artificial Turf Market

The global artificial turf market is projected to register a CAGR of 11.1% over the forecast period 2022-2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economies and industries in various countries. The unprecedented rise in the number of COVID-19 cases and the subsequent lockdown of numerous manufacturing facilities influenced the growth of various markets. In the Middle-East and Africa, the distribution network was significantly disrupted, which affected the sales of artificial turfs. According to Synthetic Grass Warehouse, artificial turf contractors are experiencing gains in sales up to 30% from 2020. Sports field applications represented 63% of the installed turf in 2020 and are anticipated to remain the largest application segment over the forecast period. However, the use of turf in landscape applications is growing rapidly and is likely to create growth opportunities for the artificial turf market in the near future. The global marketplace is recovering from its losses. Manufacturers can overcome the demand and supply gap due to the revival of their operations.

Artificial turfs find the highest use in contact sports, such as soccer and rugby, which are two of the most popular games in and around Europe, thus contributing to the significant share held by the regional market. Many new artificial turfs are being set up for soccer and rugby grounds, with the most notable development being the usage of artificial turfs for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and in the FIFA World Cup. There is high demand for artificial turf in the residential and commercial application sectors also. With various advantages, artificial turf has become a valid substitute for lawns. They are used in backyards, edgings, pavers, medians, and poolside areas and are used to create commercial and residential playgrounds, focusing on children's safety. Further, various developed and developing countries are experiencing rapid urbanization, leading to the significant growth of the construction sector globally, thereby fueling demand for low-maintenance products, especially artificial turf.
