Developing urban green spaces, such as community gardens/parks, playing fields, and several open areas, will mainly increase the use of trimmers, edger, lawnmowers, leaf blower, chainsaws, and other independent power source equipment/machinery for gardening/landscaping applications, which in turn, will positively influence the demand for small off-road engines.
 

Expanding urbanization has compelled residents to utilize available social spaces for nursery/gardening to enhance physical and mental fitness. Furthermore, ongoing trends toward campus, corporate gardening, and urban farming will surge product growth in the commercial landscaping industry. According to Garden Media, over 20% of the middle age population in the U.S. is involved in gardening as a recreational pursuit. Such activities will propel SORE utilization to operate garden tillers, string trimmers, leaf blowers, and other independent power source equipment/machinery for commercial and residential landscaping/gardening applications.
