The low speed vehicle market in North America is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.06%, reaching USD 4.15 Billion by 2022 from USD 3.57 Billion in 2017. The rising trend of using low speed vehicles in gated communities, resorts, industrial, & college campuses is projected to fuel the demand for these vehicles. Also, possible advancements in ride-hailing and integrated mobility solutions, the market for low speed vehicles is projected to showcase a steady growth rate over the forecast period.

The study segments the low speed vehicle market by vehicle type (Commercial Turf Utility Vehicles, Golf Carts, Industrial Utility Vehicles, and Personnel Carriers). In terms of volume, golf carts are the largest segment in the low speed vehicle market, whereas, personnel carriers are estimated to have the fastest growing market. The growth in the golf carts is owing to the increase in golf communities and golf activities, whereas the personnel carriers are expected to grow with the increase in gated communities, resorts, and its uses in such locations.

The study also segments the market in terms of Manufacturer. The key manufacturer targeted under this segment are Polaris, Deere, Kubota, Club Car/Ingersoll Rand, Textron, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Ontario, American SportWorks, and Bad Boy/Intimidator. Club Car, Textron, Yamaha, and Kubota are identified to contribute to more than 75% of the North American low speed vehicle market share, owing to their wide product portfolio in terms of vehicle type, fuel type, and strong presence in the North American market. During the forecast period Club car is estimated to have the largest and fastest market.

The low speed vehicles in North America are also segmented, by their power output range as <8 kW, 8 kW –15 Kw, and >15kW. In terms of value, the 8 kW –15 kW is estimated to have the largest market whereas, >15 kW is estimated to have the fastest growing market during the forecast period. The increased demand for >15 kW can be attributed due to its all-terrain application, maximum speed output, and as it can withstand loads up to certain limits.

The low speed vehicle market for North America is also segmented by propulsion (diesel, electric, and gasoline). Electric vehicles are estimated to have largest and fastest market during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed due to the increase in vehicle electrification trend. Also, the electric vehicles are better suitable options as these vehicles are required to cover the short distances and need less power output.

The US is estimated to be the largest and fastest growing low speed vehicle market during the forecast period. The growth in the region can be attributed to the presence of established manufacturers such as Polaris, Textron, and Club car. The growth can also be observed as the average age of the population is above 55 years of age and this age group of people prefer low speed vehicles as their second vehicle to commute in local areas or same vicinity. Thus, the overall market for low speed vehicles is quite high in the US in comparison to other countries.

Low Speed Vehicle Market for North America

The major factor hindering the growth of low speed vehicle market in North America is the minimal safety features with which the vehicles are equipped. As the authorities have not specified the safety standards for these vehicles, they are not designed considering the safety aspect. Thus, consumers do not prefer a low speed vehicle.

The key strategies adopted by the players in the low speed vehicle market in North America are new product developments, supply contracts, and expansions. Polaris and Textron are some of the leading market players that have adopted these strategies to expand their businesses. For instance, in October 2017, Polaris introduced the intelligent off-road suspension, named as, DYNAMIX Active Suspension, for its low speed vehicles, whereas, in September 2017, Textron had a supply contract with the Real Club Valderrama, a golf club in Spain to supply 40 units of E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE golf carts.
