According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Golf Cart Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the global golf cart market size grew at a CAGR of 4% during 2014-2019. A golf cart is a small-sized mechanized vehicle that is used to convey golfers and their equipment around a golf course. Also known as a golf buggy, it is either powered by an electric motor, solar power or gasoline engine. Extremely easy to operate, the average speed of the cart ranges from 25kmph to 50 kmph. It is usually built low to the ground for depressing the center of gravity, which offers stability and allows it to be driven even over uneven terrain. These carts are widely employed to minimize the workload of caddies while providing an overall enjoyable experience to the passengers. Apart from this, they are also used at numerous public places, including airports, hotels, shopping malls and railway stations, where the use of cars is impractical.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Golf Cart Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the growing participation in golf as a luxury sport, coupled with an increase in the number of golf courses and membership-only country clubs. Along with this, golf carts are now being modified by accommodating advertisement boards and banners that are used for several promotional and marketing activities across golf courses, airports and resorts. The market is further driven by the growing adoption of electric golf carts on the global level. These carts are widely replacing their gasoline-driven counterparts as they are characterized by zero carbon emissions and complete elimination of noise. Solar-powered carts are also gaining traction in the market on account of the adoption of eco-friendly variants powered by renewable energy sources. The growing preference for golf cart rental services for cost-effective internal transportation at various events, such as exhibitions, tradeshows, expos and symposiums, is providing a further boost to the market growth. Some of the other factors driving the growth of the market include the launch of GPS-enabled golf carts, rapid growth in the hospitality sector and numerous advancements in engine efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to witness moderate growth during 2020-2025.
