The golf cart and buggy market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the period 2021–2026.

In terms of seating capacities, one-four golf cart seaters are expected to dominate the market across the world, expecting to project an incremental growth of $0.81 billion during the forecast period. The most crucial factor determining the growth of the market is the increasing popularity of golf as a sport across the globe, which has increased the demand for equipment. Moreover, an important driver for the golf cart market has been the consistent growth in golfing events and golf tourism. The sport does attract holidaymakers; the business of golf tourism has led to a revenue-generating opportunity for manufacturers as they make the mobility of people easy. Golf travelers are exploring new destinations for golf holidays and are keen to travel beyond traditional destinations. This, in turn, provides opportunities for vendors to expand beyond borders.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the golf cart and buggy market during the forecast period:
• Increasing Golf Rental Services
• Growing Promotional Activities by Vendors
• Technological Advances in Golf Carts

Global Golf Cart And Buggy Market Segmentation
The global golf and buggy market research report includes a detailed segmentation by fuel, application, end-user, seating capacity, geography. In terms of volume, electric golf carts are expected to observe the highest growth during the forecast period. Stringency in emission regulations and an increase in sustainability practices are expected to boost the growth of electric equipment. North America is projected to generate an incremental growth of over 41 thousand units during the forecast period. However, the APAC region is likely to emerge as a major market with the growing number of golf courses in China, India, and Japan. Moreover, the shift from gasoline-based vehicles to the eco-friendly source of fuels is one of the major factors influencing the sale of electric devices. Severity in vehicle emissions and the increase in noise and pollution levels from petrol and diesel-powered golf vehicles are likely to decline the market revenue of gasoline variants. However, a high power output and additional speed make gas-powered carts a preferred choice for several end-users. Furthermore, solar and electric-powered alternatives are expected to capture the market share during forecast years.

One-seater segment is witnessing growth due to low maintenance cost and increasing awareness of eco-friendly vehicles. These carts are witnessing demand from ace golfers. With one-seater carts offering similar advantages as traditional buggies, they are expected to observe high application. Two-four-seaters are widely used across the globe in multiple industries from golf courses to industrial locations. One-four-seater golf carts are expected to reach over 549 thousand units by 2026. These vehicles are observing high adoption across the globe. They are designed to offer maximum comfort and safety. These carts are used to ferry a small number of people in wedding events, amusement parks, and in industries and warehouses to move people from parking to industrial space. Also, two-four-seaters are used in government offices, schools, universities to offer easy mobility.

The increased user participation in golfing activities and the high government spending to promote sports at grassroots are leading to the rapid expansion of golf courses across the world, thereby increasing the adoption of carts and buggies. Moreover, the rise in investment, coupled with the shift in the participation trend among players plays a vital role in boosting the market for golf carts. Steady growth in new course construction has been witnessed in the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

The increasing adoption of buggies and carts in concerts, corporate events, wedding destinations, and worship events is a major factor responsible for the increased usage. There has been a consistent growth in the concert industry across the world and is witnessing a rapid and continuous increase in demand for live entertainment. Europe is one of the major largest organizers of music festivals, which attract tourists from several countries of Asia and North America. They have witnessed high adoption in amusement parks, which are expected to drive the market. They are helpful in large, spaced amusement parks as they make mobility easy on the premises and improve the visitors’ experience at the park.
