Small Gas Engines Market Scenario


Small Gas Engines Market is projected to be worth USD 3.52 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 4.87% during the forecast period (2021 - 2028)., The market was valued at USD 2.89 billion in 2021.


Small gas engines are small-displacement, low powered internal combustion engines that are used majorly to power lawn mowers, generators, concrete mixers, and other machines that require independent power sources. The small gas engines consist of systems such as fuel, exhaust, ignition, combustion, cooling, and lubrication. The small gas engines market size is projected to reach USD 3.41 billion by 2025 from an estimated USD USD 2.67 billion in 2019 with ~ 4.14% CAGR from 2019 to 2025. The major factors driving the growth of the global small gas engines market include growth in the construction industry, along with the rising demand for outdoor power equipment rental.


According to the Commerce Department, the construction spending in the US increased by 1.3% with investments in public projects. Similarly, rising industrialization and urbanization in Asia-Pacific is leading to the growth of the construction sector in countries such as India, China, and other South Asian countries. For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India has a requirement of investment worth USD 777.73 billion in infrastructure by 2022, along with increasing FDI inflows in the country.


These factors would increase the use of small gas engines in the construction sector. Moreover, owing to nominal maintenance costs and reduced product costs, outdoor power equipment are expected to be frequently rented and gain a lot of attention from homeowners and contractors. Additionally, the global small gas engines market is projected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period due to growth in the residential and industrial sector.   Key players in the small gas engines market such as Briggs and Straton Corporation, Honda Motor Co., Kohler Co., and Kawasaki Heavy Industries, among others are actively focusing on signing contracts and agreements to supply small gas engines. For instance, Yamaha (Japan) expanded its outdoor power segment by acquiring Subaru Industrial Power Products (US), which would expand its small gas engine business. The global small gas engines market has been segmented based on equipment, engine displacement, end-use, and region. Based on equipment, the global market has been segmented into a lawnmower, chainsaw, string trimmer, hedge trimmer, portable generator, rotary tiller, pressure washer, concrete vibrators, concrete screed, edger, leaf blower, snow blower, and others. The lawnmower segment is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period.


This is because of their wide use in residential and commercial applications. Based on engine displacement, the global small gas engines market has been divided into 20 cc to 100 cc, 101 cc to 400 cc, 401 cc to 650 cc. The 101 cc to 400 cc segment dominates the global market as the engines within this range is mostly used inland mowers that produce high torque. On the basis of end-use, the global market has been divided into gardening, construction, and industrial. The gardening segment is estimated to register a higher growth rate during the forecast period. The demand for outdoor power equipment in landscaping services is a crucial driver for the growth of the gardening segment.


The global small gas engines market is expected to grow at ~4.14 % CAGR during the forecast period. Market Segmentation     On the basis of region, the global small gas engines market has been segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America holds the largest share in the small gas engines market due to the growth in construction and rental of outdoor power equipment due to the increased demand for landscape services in the residential and commercial sector.
