By battery type, the lithium-ion segment is estimated to account for the major market share in 2021

Due to stringent emission standards across the world, coupled with relatively lower operating costs of electric LSVs, there is a shifting preference toward electrically driven LSVs. As these vehicles are intended for short distances, the electric drivetrain serves the purpose of travel and fulfills the power requirement. Approximately 60% of the total LSVs are electrically driven. North America is projected to be the largest market due to the wide acceptance of LSVs, high number of charging stations, and government support. Thus, the adoption and use of lithium-ion batteries can help reduce vehicle running and maintenance costs. This will lead to a strong pathway for production of lithium-ion electric low-speed vehicles during the forecasted period.

The golf courses segment to dominate the application type segment

According to the National Golf Foundation (NGF) records of 2021, around 82% of the world’s countries have golf courses, totaling more than 38,000. The report also says that around 78% of the total golf courses are located in the US, Japan, Canada, England, Australia, Germany, France, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and Scotland. The US accounted for 42% of the total golf courses of the world.

As per Golf Datatech and the NGF, 2020 saw an increase of 13.9% in total rounds played over 2019. As per the records of NGF, there is a nearly 44% increase in the numbers from 2006 to 2019. Also, as per ASIAN Golf, nearly 5,000 golf courses were developed in Asia by March 2020, of which 196 were officially registered in India. While the closing of golf courses has steadily outpaced openings, there are still ongoing developments in the North American market, with 133 projects underway. Also, Europe holds the second largest position in the number of golf courses, which amounts to more than 8,700. This high number of golf courses in Europe is due to the presence of various organizations that support golf in many European countries; they continually strive to improve the golf business in the region.

Thus, the increase and development of golf courses will drive the demand for golf carts and turf utility vehicles.  

North America is estimated to be the dominant regional market

The US, with higher demand for LSVs in golf courses and personal mobility, was the largest country-level market for low-speed vehicles globally in 2021. Moreover, higher demand for low-speed vehicles from other application areas, including hotels and resorts, airports, and industrial facilities, is expected to drive the market growth in the region. Continuous product innovations by leading regional LSV manufacturers, including Textron (US), Deere & Company (US), The Toro Company (US), and Club Car (US), coupled with government policies promoting the development and demand from end use sectors, are further boosting the market growth in the region.

Furthermore, golf adoption has seen rapid growth in the recent past, especially after COVID-19, as for all of 2020, play increased 13.9% compared to 2019. Moreover, The National Golf Foundation recently reported that the total number of rounds of golf played in the US will surpass last year’s total by 4% to 5%. This growth in registration and play in the golf sector is expected to fuel the demand for golf carts and commercial turf utility vehicles across North America during the forecast period.

Additionally, shifting focus of tourists toward luxury experiences, especially in the hospitality sector, is further expected to boost LSV sales in North America. To deliver experiences to the tourists which sync with their expectorations, hotels & resorts are showcasing low-speed vehicles in their featured offerings. The growing demand for LSVs in gated communities, collages, and theme parks for short-distance commute due to their low operational cost is further expected to drive the LSV demand during the forecast period.

Key manufacturers are focusing on product launches for market expansion, R&D, and product advancement to keep up with the changing needs of passengers. 

In January 2022, Yamaha launched the Drive2 Powertrain AC Lithium. The new Lithium-ion-powered golf car is with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS).
