Stratview Research announces the launch of a new report on Small Off-Road Utility Engines (SORE) Market by Application Type (Lawnmowers, Chainsaws, Generators, Pumps, Compressors, Trimmers, and Others), by Engine Power Type (<5 kW, 5-10 kW, and 10-19 kW), by Equipment Type (Non-Handheld Equipment and Handheld Equipment), by Fuel Type (Gasoline Engines, Electric Engines, and Other Engines), and by Region (North America, Europe, and Rest of the World), Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2020-2025.
This report, from Stratview Research, studies the small off-road utility engines market over the trend period of 2014 to 2019 and the forecast period of 2020 to 2025 in terms of both unit shipments as well as in value. The report studies the Pre-COVID as well as the Post-COVID scenarios and figures out the possible loss of the business due to the pandemic. Furthermore, the report aims to address the industry concerns regarding when and how the recovery will take place in the market. It estimates the current and future demand for small off-road utility engines at the global, regional, as well as country level.
Small Off-Road Utility Engines (SORE) Market: Research Highlights
Small off-road utility engines (SOREs) are non-road small engines that are rated less than or equal to 19 kilowatts (or 25 HP). Engines in this category are used in applications, such as lawn and garden equipment comprising lawnmowers, chainsaws, trimmers, etc.; as well as other small commercial engine applications covering portable generator, pumps, compressors, pressure washers, etc. The small off-road utility engine market is extremely affected by various macro-economic and social factors, such as economic uncertainty, industrial recession, weather conditions, seasonality, new housing trends, and consumer behavior. The market stakeholders experience fluctuations in their demand with such unpredictable factors.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought distress in the market, which is creating a serious plunge in the demand for small off-road utility engines to an unprecedented level. The global small off-road utility engines market is likely to experience a double-digit decline in a YoY basis in 2020. Currently, it is exceedingly difficult to state a tangible impact of the COVID-19 as it is still spreading and taking economies in its deadly grip. Based on primary interviews with the key stakeholders, it has been found that the industry needs more than five years to hit back its Pre-COVID sales figure. By 2025, the global small off-road engine sales are expected to be 106.6 million units, slightly lower than its 2019-sales figure.
The possible impact of the pandemic would be like the Great Recession (2008), tumbling the sales in 2020 to the below Great Recession level. Furthermore, it is anticipated that there would be a further decline in 2021, followed by a gradual recovery in the sales of SORE from 2022 onwards. There is a great push in the market towards reduction in NOx, HC, and CO emissions from engines. Leading players have been incorporating various new technologies, such as direct injection, advanced sensors, and integrated electronics for intelligent operations, to meet or exceed the emission limits set by regulatory authorities such as EPA and CARB.

Based on the application type, the market is segmented as lawnmower, chainsaws, generators, pumps, compressors, trimmers, and others. Lawnmower is likely to remain the most dominant application type in the coming five years, driven by strong demand from the USA, western European countries, and Australia. Among lawnmowers, walk-behind lawnmowers hold a significant share in the market; however, robotic lawnmowers have been experiencing the highest growth. Emerging Asian economies have higher demand for commercial/industrial small engines, especially for compressors and generators.
Our analysis based on the market segment of engine power type suggests that the <5kW engine is likely to remain the most dominant type in terms of unit shipments among <5kW, 5-10kW, and 10-19kW segments. Electric engines are gaining traction in the low-power range segment (<5kW), creating new revenue pockets for players supplying lithium-ion battery engines. Ride-on mowers and generators are some key applications that own a relatively high penetration of high-power engines (10-19kW).
Based on the fuel type, gasoline engine is likely to remain the dominant fuel type in the market in the coming five years; however, there has been an increasing demand for electric engines with the replacement of gasoline engines. For instance, lawnmowers, which have four-stroke gasoline engines, have been witnessing a paradigm shift towards electric lawnmowers, especially robotic lawnmowers. Improved NVH performance, emission reduction, and low cost are some key driving factors for electric engines over gasoline and diesel engines.
