Gardening equipment: clear growth in the market

The market for gardening and landscaping equipment is booming. Sales figures for the first nine months of this year - processed by Comagarden/Morgan - indicate an overall growth in sales of 24.3%, thus recovering sharply from the 0.9% drop recorded in the same period of 2020. The data referring to individual types of machinery provide a differentiated picture: lawn mowers grew by 19.5%, hedge trimmers by 18.2%, chainsaws by 27.3%, trimmers by 30.4% and garden tractors by 15.8%. The most consistent increases were recorded for blowers/aspirators (+42%) and for motor hoes, which grew by 73.6%, while the only type of vehicle that showed a decrease was sprayers (-38.7%). According to Renato Cifarelli, president of Comagarden, the association of manufacturers in the sector, the current phase of the market derives from a spontaneous growth in demand since the gardening sector can make little use of those public incentives, in particular the tax bonus for the purchase of machines with 4.0 systems, which are instead driving the agricultural machinery market.
