Fairway Mowers Market: Introduction
Fairways are part of golf courses on which the length of the length is kept very short to facilitate ball movement. Special equipment are adopted to maintain an even surface in a golf course known as fairway mowers. Fairway mowers are powered mechanical equipment considered as a derivative of lawn mowers, with the primary function of cutting grass, however, fairway mowers are known for retaining sharpness and perfectly striped turf. The equipment consists of a turbocharged fuel engine (more often diesel engine), reel drive, steering, seat, cutting units, operator display etc. the reel drive can be electric or hydraulically operated or it can be a hybrid of both. The power for electric drive type cutting units is generated by an alternator driven by the engine. The global market for fairway mower is featured by intense competition and is dominated by large global players. Growing demand for fine stripped grass particularly in golf course maintenance is expected to drive the demand for fairway mowers. This in turns is anticipated to significantly contribute to the global fairway mowers market during the forecast period.
Fairway Mowers Market Dynamics
Growing demand for turf equipment owing to the expansion in number and average size of landscaping firms. Increasing recreation activities such as golf is one of the key factor driving the growth of global fairway mower market. Increasing willingness of consumers towards spending of disposable income on durable goods and home remodelling activities is also one of the key driver for the growth of fairway mower market across the globe. Increasing passion of consumers towards self-gardening activities with high precision to ensure perfect beauty is expected to propel the demand for fairway mowers.
The healthy market growth of Fairway Mowers can be hindered by lack of distributors owing to the niche quality of the product, unavailability of personnel to operate the Fairway Mowers, and hazards associated during the operation of Fairway Mowers among others.
Several technology trends is estimated to substantially impact the fairway mower market growth. Increasing use of electric reel drive is the ongoing trend gaining momentum in the global market. Owing to several benefits of electric reel drive over hydraulic reel drive such as reduced sound level, reduced fuel consumption, reduced hydraulic leak points etc., the market for electric reel drive type fairway mower is expected to gain traction at a significant pace.

Fairway Mowers Market: Regional Outlook
Fairway Mowers market is expected to flourish in regions where large garden spaces are easily available. Major economies of North America and Western Europe including the U.S., Germany, England, France and Canada is known for higher and increasing number of golf courses. This in turns is boosting the demand for turf equipment particularly fairway mowers in the respective regions. Though Fairway Mowers are an excellent mechanical equipment to clear or trim the turf, its acceptance in the Asia Pacific is anticipated to be lower than that of North America and Europe due to general lack of awareness about the equipment, lack of well established supply chain for the product and preference for manual labour for garden maintenance purposes. The same holds true for Latin America as well. However, increasing traction towards self-gardening and growing capability of citizens for discretionary purchase of garden products and equipment is estimated to fuel the sales of fairway mowers in the coming years. Owing to several benefits, the fairway mowers market is estimated to possess substantial potential to grow but it comes down to the acceptance of the equipment in some regions.
