Global Golf Cart Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Popularity of Golf

The increasing popularity of golf, especially in first-world regions, such as Europe and North America, is one of the major driving factors for the growth of the golf cart market. According to a report published by the R&A and the European Golf Association in 2021, over 10.6 million players are registered for golf in Europe, which is a positive increase from the 7.9 million registered players in 2016. The growing popularity of golf as a recreational activity and a booster of physical and mental health will positively impact the demand for golf carts during the forecast period.

Development in Battery Technology for Electric Golf Cart

As the demand for electric golf carts increases, OEMs are significantly investing in R & D activities to improve battery technology to increase efficiency and run time. The battery makers are also launching new battery types specifically designed to suit the needs of golf carts.

Such developments provide lucrative growth opportunities to the global golf cart market.

Restraints

Financial Crises Resulting Impeding Market Growth

The Future of Golf 2020 report found that golf player registrations decreased in 2020. According to the report, the financial crisis is one of the main factors driving registered players to abandon the game. Other market restraints include insufficient power and speed, as well as increased cost of maintenance. Moreover, golf cart usage is restricted by a few regulations. There are certain regulations that are restraining the usage of golf cart. For instance, in order to drive a golf cart, one needs to have a permit, be above a certain age limit, and fulfill several other requirements. All these factors significantly contribute to the declining demand for golf carts.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Golf Cart Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak negatively impacted the growth of the global golf cart market. The increasing number of COVID-19 infection cases prompted the governments of various countries to impose strict lockdowns, which resulted in restrictions on recreational activities, including golf. As a result, the demand for golf carts significantly declined. Furthermore, the use of golf carts also plunged in the commercial spaces due to complete restrictions on the operations, which also incurred huge losses to the manufacturers worldwide.
