In recent years, the demand for artificial turf in place of natural grass is increasing, owing to its various benefits, such as less wear and tear, low maintenance required, and high durability. Further, it helps in reducing the use of water and other harmful pesticides and fertilizers.
In terms of the material used to make turf, the market is categorized into nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene, polyamide, and others. Among these, the polyethylene category holds the significant share in the artificial turf market. Unique characteristics of polyethylene, such as durability, softness, and resilience, make it the most used material for making turf. Due to the low cost of polypropylene-based artificial turf, the category is also expected to occupy significant share in the market in coming years.
The artificial turf market is categorized, on the basis of application, into contact sports, non-contact sports, leisure, landscaping, and others. Of these, the contact sports category is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period (2021–2030), due to the large application of artificial turf in contact sports like hockey, soccer, and rugby. However, major sports tournament like the 2020 Summer Olympics being abandoned, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, has reduced the demand for artificial turf. Although, it is expected that as the things come back to normal and tournaments being rescheduled, there is a sudden surge in its demand.
Sports like hockey, football, tennis, golf, and others are extensively played on artificial turfs in European countries. Thus, the European region holds significant share in the global artificial turf market, owing to its high demand for sports application.
The growing construction industry is driving the demand for artificial turf, which is used in sport fields, stadiums, commercial gardens, and selected residential houses. For instance, Qatar is constructing eight stadiums for the FIFA 2022, which will require high amount of artificial turf. Moreover, water scarce regions are also adopting the artificial turf, as they cannot grow natural grass easily. So, rising concern for water scarcity, globally, is also driving the growth of the artificial turf market. Another major factor responsible for the market growth is the fast-paced replacement of grass surfaced sports arenas with artificial turf, due to its superior quality, easy replacement, and eco-friendly nature.
High cost associated with artificial turf can limit the growth of the artificial turf market, as many end users, mainly residential customers, cannot afford it, due to their limited disposable income. Also, non-biodegradable nature of artificial turf poses the recycling challenge in the market.
