In the coming years, global demand for outdoor power equipment for lawn maintenance, gardening and commercial landscaping is projected to grow from $22.3 billion USD in 2019 to $26.1 billion by 2024. In the near term, fuel-powered equipment is expected to continue to lead the market.
However, consumer demand for more sustainable products is driving the growth of electric alternatives. For example, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has recently proposed new regulations to ban the sale of all gas-powered lawn and garden equipment in the coming years.
This increases the need for advanced material solutions that curb emissions while enabling more sustainable and lightweight design. For many years, DSM has worked with the world’s leading manufacturers of outdoor power equipment to build the next-gen material solutions for lawn, garden and agricultural applications.
