On the basis of installation type, the global artificial turf market has been categorized into flooring and wall cladding.
Based on infill material, the global artificial turf market has been segregated into petroleum based infills, sand based infills, and others.
Based on application, the global artificial turf market has been segmented into sport fields, residential landscape, non-residential landscape, and commercial landscape.
Artificial turf are the synthetic alternatives to natural grasses. Nowadays, sport fields (football, rugby, golf, field hockey) greatly replacing natural grasses with artificial turf due to their high durability, low maintenance, weather resistance, no irrigation & garnishing requirement, and aesthetic appeal. Artificial turf are also the most widely preferred choices for residential landscapes (lawns, terrace garden, payments, colony playground, and gym floorings), non-residential landscapes (school playgrounds, road-side pavement & vertical gardens, industrial lawns), and commercial landscapes (shopping mall lawns and wall claddings), among others. The grass fibers on artificial turfs are made using polymers such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyamides. The choice of the raw materials depends upon the characteristic requirement. For instance, polyethylene grass fibers are soft and long lasting, whereas polypropylene grass fibers last longer, however they are tough and therefore harsher to human skin. Artificial turfs can be laid over floorings and as a wall cladding.
The first generation of artificial turf was prepared using only polymers for making grass fibers. The second generation witnessed the use of infill materials to hold artificial blades in a standing upright position. Recently, third generation of artificial turfs are launched in markets comprising of shock pad, natural products such as coir or cork, sand and crumb runner or soil.
Replacement of natural grasses with artificial turfs at sports fields are majorly driving the global artificial turf market. Rising awareness regarding the superior characteristics of artificial turfs such as low-maintenance, no irrigation and garnishing requirement, and recreation solutions are boosting the product demand in residential, non-residential, and commercial applications. Additionally, increase in the per-capita income in developing and emerging economics has raised the purchasing power of the people, which in turn has led to the increasing use of artificial turfs for landscaping. Furthermore, the introduction of hybrid artificial turf technology is expected to offer new growth opportunities to market players in the near future.
However, high cost of artificial turf is the major challenge to the market growth currently. Furthermore, there is an ongoing debate over the environmental impacts of artificial turfs due to the presence of petroleum-based products in it. Manufacturers, however, claim that since artificial turfs are recyclable, require less water, and reduce the use of agrochemicals, they have low impact on the environment. Stringent environmental regulations may restrain the market growth if debate over the environmental impact of artificial turf is proven right. Higher heat build-up of artificial turf over natural grasses is also hampering the product market growth.
