The snow blower is a machine that is used to discard snow from a highway, rail track, or a driveway in order to allow access to traffic. Snow blowers are widely employed on highways and rail networks in order to remove the snow and allow the route to remain active at all times.
Regions experiencing high seasonal snowfall such as North America and Europe are driving the demand for snow blowers. The effects of global warming have led to extreme weathers and increased snowfalls, which in turn is driving the snow blower market. Increased consumer confidence and rise in disposable income has led to the utilization of snow blowers for domestic needs. Furthermore, snow blowers witness high demand for domestic usage in order to clear driveways, backyards, and porches. The compact design and simplicity of technology has led to an increased usage, which in turn is propelling the snow blower market. Emergence of snow removal business having dedicated fleet of snow blowers that are used for clearing mountain passes and saddles is further driving the snow blower market. Russia and the U.S witness the utilization of jet snow blowers, wherein a jet engine is used to clear and melt the snow. The jet snow blowers produce impressive thrust and heat and thus, are able to quickly clear rail tracks and highways covered with thick ice sheets.
Jet snow blowers are expensive and also consume a considerable amount of fuel; hence, their usage is restricted to extreme conditions. Every year, snow blower operation-related injuries are reported, which require medical attention. The clogging of snow in the machine, which jams the motor, is a serious issues related to the operation of the snow blower. Therefore, manufactures are expected to qualify many safety standards to minimize risk.
The global snow blower market can be segmented based on type of power, stage, application industry, and region. Based on type of power, the snow blower market can be classified into three segments. Battery powered and gas powered are the two prominent segments. Gas powered snow blowers are the traditional type of snow blowers. They are used for high performance applications such as on rail tracks and highways. Battery powered snow blowers are witnessing an increased demand owing to the rise in domestic demand for snow blowers.
In terms of stages, the global snow blower market can be bifurcated into three segments. Single stage and double stage snow blowers are widely utilized types of snow blowers. Single stage snow blowers are compact, light, easy to handle, and ideal for household chores and hence, have high demand. Two stage snow blowers are heavy-duty machines with power assisted wheels, which makes them efficient for operations even in slopes and mountain areas. Two stage snow blowers have augers, which can break large chunks of snow and shoot them over a distance.
Based on application industry, the global snow blower market can be classified into rails, roads, domestic, and ice rinks. Roads and domestic are the major application segments contributing to the snow blower market. Increased demand for ice sports is estimated to boost the ice rink segment, which in turn is expected to drive the snow blower market in the near future.
In terms of region, the snow blower market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe are leading markets for snow blowers due to favorable climatic conditions in these regions.
Key players operating in the global snow blower market include American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Husqvarna AB (publ.), Snow Joe, LLC., The Toro Company, Ariens Company, Greenworks Tools, Cub Cadet, Deere & Company, MTD Holdings Inc., Venture Products, Inc., Yanmar Co., Ltd., and Briggs & Stratton.
