Electric golf cart segment accounted for the highest market share in 2022

The electric golf cart segment accounted for the highest market share in 2022 and is likely to grow considerably during the forecast period. The growth of the segment market is mainly attributed to its higher adoption across the globe because of a wide range of benefits offered by these carts, such as noiseless operation, low running costs, high speed, and enhanced comfort. Moreover, various types that key market players are undertaking to reduce the average cost of electric golf cart batteries and multiple kinds of stringent emission norms imposed by many government bodies are likely to contribute towards the market growth in a positive way.

The gasoline segment registered a robust growth rate over the study period because of the low cost of gasoline-enables carts compared to the other types and their long travel range. In addition, countries that do not have large battery manufacturing facilities & weak EV charging infrastructure would prefer the gasoline gold carts, which propel the growth and demand of the segment market.
