The primary drivers of this market are the growing popularity of golf as a sport and recreational activity, as well as the increasing use of carts in a variety of commercial and personal settings. Furthermore, in the North American golf cart market, electric golf carts are becoming increasingly popular as governments implement emission regulations to achieve long-term environmental goals. Additionally, the number of clubs and golf courses in the North America is increasing.

All of these factors boost the growth of the North America golf cart market. Furthermore, the effective integration of technology and workflow by major industry players is expected to boost the adoption of solar-powered golf carts in the coming years.

Furthermore, recent advances in lithium-ion batteries have increased their storage capacities, resulting in a longer range for electric vehicles. As a consequence, increasing user preference for electric models is projected to boost North America golf cart market in forecast period.
The declining number of golfers owing to the high cost of playing, the game's incompatibility with modern lifestyles, and the difficulty of the game may hamper market growth over the forecast period. According to the United States consumer product safety commission, this results in limited vehicle usage. The government lacks regulations and strategies for golf cart accessibility, which is limited to private property and resorts. This limitation could hamper the widespread use of golf cart as a mode of transportation for short distances in urban areas.
