What is Escalating Demand for Stump Grinders?

Growing demand for wood-based products for different household and industrial purposes is increasing the rate of deforestation. Global deforestation increased 17% in the first six month of 2021.

After trees are cut down, their stumps remains an obstacle for further processing of land. Therefore, immediate ground clearance becomes necessary, which is driving demand for wood chipper-shredders.

Growing use of mulch to increase the aesthetic appeal of gardens is also a factor contributing to the steady growth of the market. The chips produced from stump grinders are being utilized in the production of biofuels and soft boards, which is secondary benefit aiding market growth.

How is Rising Environmental Concerns Affecting Sales of Stump Grinders?

Governments are taking every preventive measure for afforestation, which is helping them control rising environmental concerns. For instance, the Government of India has started the “National Afforestation Programme” for implementing plantation and afforestation schemes in forest areas.

Such measures are indirectly positively impacting sales of commercial stump grinders as they provide a significant advantage in afforestation. Once old trees are being cut down, land clearance is mandatory for new trees to be planted.

As such, utilization of stump grinders in forest areas for new tree plantation or clearance of forest for infrastructure purposes is expected to provide a boost to sales over the decade.
