Lawn Mower Review

A lawn mower, also known as a weeder, lawnmower, lawn trimmer, etc., is a machine used to trim lawns, vegetation, etc. Lawn mowers are highly popular and can be widely used in turf trimming in private gardens, public green spaces and professional lawns. The market demand accounts for a large proportion of the total demand for garden machinery products. Lawn mowers can be divided into gasoline power, AC power and DC power according to the power source.

Development History of the Global Lawn Mower Industry

Since Edwin Budding, an engineer in Gloucestershire, England, applied for the first patent for a lawnmower in 1830, the development of lawnmowers has roughly gone through three stages: the era of manpower mowing (1830-1880s), the era of motorization (1890s -1950s) and the era of intelligence (1960s to present).

Lawn mower industry chain

From the perspective of the lawn mower industry chain, it is mainly divided into two supply chains: fuel lawn mowers and electric lawn mowersAmong them, the upstream of fuel lawn mowers is mainly the engine, the upstream of electric lawn mowers is mainly batteries; the midstream is related brands and foundries of lawn mowers; the downstream is sales channels, including supermarket retailers, distributors and online sales channels


Middle reaches


With the continuous development of my country’s economic strength and industrial level in recent years, my country’s engine industry has gradually matured. According to data, my country’s engine output has remained basically stable in recent years, and the output in 2021 will be 2,682,065,000 kilowatts, a year-on-year increase of 2.1%.

Output and growth rate of China's engine industry

The scale of the lithium battery cell equipment market continues to grow, and China has already occupied half of the global market. According to relevant statistics, the global lithium battery cell equipment market size in 2021 will be 79.2 billion yuan, of which China’s lithium battery cell equipment scale will be 50 billion yuan, accounting for 63.13%

The future development trend of lawn mower industry

From the perspective of various types of lawn mowers: gasoline lawn mowers use traditional gasoline engines, which have the advantages of high power and good cutting effects. There are many limitations; AC lawn mowers are powered by AC motors, and the cost is low, but they need to be connected to a power source, which is poor in portability; DC electric power lawn mowers are powered by DC motors and rechargeable batteries as power sources Efficiency, low noise, energy saving and environmental protection and other advantages. Among them, lithium-ion DC lawn mowers use lithium-ion batteries as the power source, and generally use DC brushless motors. With the accumulation of technology in the lithium battery industry, lithium-ion lawn mowers are currently developing in the direction of high power, long battery life, and intelligence. , more in line with market demand.

The market segment of lawn mowers includes mowing robots, which is the main development direction in the future, but the overall penetration rate of the lawn mowing robot industry is low and is still in its infancy; there are still major pain points in some markets that have not been resolved, and the core functions of technology & products It is the main driving factor at the current stage; when the product performance is gradually improved to solve the pain points, the growth rate of the overall lawn mowing robot is far beyond this.
