The U.S. walk-behind lawn mowers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.93% during 2022-2027.


Walk-behind lawn mowers are the lawn care equipment that helps in trimming grass. These lawn mowers are either self-propelled or manual push mowers with a minimum cutting width of 12 inches. These are operated by the user walking behind the mower and directing the equipment.

The demand for walk-behind lawn mowers is propelling due to the development of green acreage, which gets influenced by the weather conditions. The need for lawn mowers surges during summer and spring due to the increased time spent on lawn care activities. Additionally, the growing demand for landscaping services across the sports field and garden areas like golf courses, football stadiums, and public parks fuels the development of the US walk-behind lawn mowers industry. The landscaping industry is propelling in commercial construction activities due to the increasing demand for lawn beautification and other garden activities, which drive the growth of the U.S. walk-behind lawn mower market.

Moreover, increasing government endeavors to expand green acreage are pushing the demand for lawn mowers in the market. Furthermore, the garden equipment industry prospects in many US countries have improved, making it one of the prime regions in the global walk-behind lawn mover market. The US expects to witness one of the most robust residential construction growth, with single-family units being the key growth area. Hence, the above-mentioned residential construction insights will likely influence the demand for walk-behind lawn mowers over the next few years.


The commotion formed by the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant effect on the demand for lawn mowers from the commercial sector owing to the closure of most commercial facilities, including hotels, resorts, sports arenas (golf courses, football stadiums, and others), and decline in construction activities. However, this decline was affected by the rise in demand from the residential areas. Although sales were comparatively weak during H1 2020, H2 2020 witnessed significant growth in demand for Walk-behind lawn mowers.


Increasing Adoption of Green Spaces & Green Roofs

  • In 2022, the US government signed the project cities race to zero-emission the concept of this plan is to achieve net-zero greenhouse emissions by 2050. This project will help to protect the cities in the US region from climatic changes and green-gas emission hazards. These projects usually cover larger land areas and require consistent landscaping services; the U.S. walk-behind lawn mower market expects to witness significant demand during the forecast period.
  • Green roofs are an efficient solution, as it helps to cool the environment, insulate infrastructures and buildings, reduce air pollution, and increase biodiversity. Hence, green roof adoption is a significant growth opportunity for walk-behind lawn mower vendors.

Development of Lithium Batteries

  • With the rising demand for long-lasting battery life, numerous advancements are constructed in batteries for alternative power capabilities. These measures have significantly improved the productivity and effectiveness of lithium batteries.
  • These batteries are light in weight and sustainable. End-users gradually want technology that charges quickly and lasts longer on a single charge.

Growth in Residential and Commercial Construction

  • In Q4 2021, home builders in North Texas started the construction of more than 12,800 homes. Also, nearly 30% of the overall landscaping service providers across the country are in the Southern US and expect to witness continuous growth due to the rising demand for lawn care services from the residential sector.
  • In Manhattan, 12 million square feet of new office space are expected to be available by 2022. The other major US office construction markets include San Francisco, Washington, Seattle, and Dallas, Texas.

Rising Demand for Home Ownership & Home Improvement

  • With rising income levels and increasing standard of living, the demand for single residential ownership is growing. In the US, more than 28% of the total residentials are single-ownership residentials. The rising number of single residentials is helping to expand the residential sector across countries. The increasing demand for single residentials is leading to the challenge of space constraints in large cities, leading to a higher demand for smaller homes with small yard areas. Hence the US walk-behind lawn mowers market is expected to propel in the forecast period.
  • The changing lifestyle needs are one of the key factors that drove the demand for home improvements in 2020. Hence, such high expenditure provides significant growth potential to the demand for walk-behind lawn mowers over the next few years.
