APAC could become a profitable business destination for golf cart manufacturers

The Asia Pacific region held over 10% share of the golf cart market in 2022, on account of the rising disposable income in India, Australia, China, and other Asian countries. The dislocation and stress in the hospitality industry in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic have unleashed unique investment opportunities, especially in developed nations such as Japan. With the gradual lifting of restrictions, the sector is also in the early stages of a strong turnaround.

In August 2022, Star Asia Group and its affiliates announced a strategic investment in Washington Hotel Corp. and Greens Co., two listed hotel operating companies in Japan. Such initiatives will proliferate the development of golf cart accessories for enhanced mobility across the commercial sector. E-Z GO, Yamaha Golf-Car Company, and other industry participants are also focusing on extending their distribution channels across emerging Asian markets. Furthermore, the high emphasis on product cost reduction and expansion of customer bases will drive golf cart use in the region.
