Largest Market


Highest Growing Market

Asia Pacific

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Artificial Grass Market is accounted for $6.18 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $11.16 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. Artificial grass is made up of synthetic, man-made fibers that seem like real grass. These grasses are green in color and are available in different pile heights. It is manufactured in the same way as carpet and has a solid backing and then the blades are machine stitched on.

Market Dynamics:


Growing number of renovations

Renovation of sport field and facility improvements will have a tremendous effect on the growth of the artificial grass market. A growing number of high schools, colleges, professional sports teams, municipalities, and major hotels are choosing the beauty and functionality of artificial grass. The effects of adoption will resonate throughout the forecast period.


Recycling concerns of artificial grass

Concerns regarding the recycling of artificial grass are a major factor that might hinder the growth of the artificial grass market.


Availability of new technologies

Owing to bad conditions of original natural lawn and weather challenges, the installation of artificial grass is on a rise. Artificial grass is maintenance-friendly, besides this retains its color and resilience for many years, most new artificial grass is being produced today also weaves in a brown thatch that mimics the look of dead grass for a natural feel. With the newly available technologies, artificial grass has made leaps and bounds on its realistic looking appearance.


Location challenges

The major challenge of the market is the concern associated with the location where artificial grass needs to be planted.

The nylon segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Nylon-based artificial turfs are stiff and retain their original shape even in extreme athletic applications and in heavy foot traffic areas. These turfs are resistant to high temperatures and prohibit melting.

The contact sports segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The contact sports segment is estimated to be the largest owing to factors such as the increase in number of football pitches across the world, increase in investments in hockey in countries such as India, and growth in popularity of American football in the US.

Region with largest share:

Europe is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the mature artificial grass industry and the presence of major companies. The increase in research & development activities for artificial grass due to safety concerns of sports players, government support for the maintenance of artificial grass facilities, and infrastructure to promote sports activities, mainly football, is expected to drive the global market in this region during the forecast period.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the increasing constructions backed by rising investments from foreign multinationals. Developing tourism and hospitality industries are the major drivers triggering the consumption of the product in commercial applications. Moreover, growing constructions for commercial playgrounds and rapid urbanization are likely to support market growth. The growing trend of landscaping, growing investment by key stakeholders, and government support for infrastructure upgradation, mainly hockey, is expected to drive the market in countries like India.
