Lawn and Garden Robots (US Market & Forecast)
Published: January 28, 2019 Content info: 173 Pages
Description

Although already a substantial segment in Europe, sales of lawn and garden robots in the US market is still quite small, but growing rapidly.

Robotic lawn mowers are the main product in this industry, but other applications for autonomous technology, like snow blowers and weeding equipment, are beginning to reach commercialized availability.

The US market has its own set of challenges, compared to Europe, and products will require additional technological innovations in order for sales opportunities to be fully realized. Overall, sales are expected to more than double between 2018 and 2022.

‘Lawn and Garden Robots ’ addresses the following questions and more:

  • What are the key innovations required to allow robots to address the needs of the US lawn and garden market?
  • How can robot manufacturers position their products to benefit users in the commercial landscaping and turf care markets?
  • How do demographic changes and the do-it-for-me movement affect interest in lawn and garden robots?
