Motocaddy pushes ahead in manual trolley market
Leading trolley brand Motocaddy has praised the support of its retail partners after extending its share in the UK push trolley market, according to the latest sales figures released by golf industry research specialists, Golf Datatech.
Motocaddy was the top-selling push trolley brand last year and has grown its market share further in 2021 to 53% across on- and off-course channels. The latest figures show the brand is 145% up in sales YTD and 112% up on units sold in the same time period.
The success comes largely down to the popular CUBE model which has more than double the market share (37%) compared to its nearest competitor (15%). Motocaddy also has two other push trolleys inside the top-5 most popular models – the P1 and the Z1 – while the CUBE also tops the charts in units sold (34%), selling three times as many units as its nearest competitor (11%).
The latest data also indicates that sales of Motocaddy electric trolleys have increased 118% YOY and 86% in units sold during the same period.
“Obviously, we’re delighted with the sale figures and I’d like to pass on my thanks to our valued retail partners for their continued support of our brand,” said Motocaddy CEO, John Helas. “Since its launch in 2017, the CUBE has been our best-selling push trolley and the reaction from retailers and golfers has been exceptional since it first hit the shelves. The boom in golf participation has been great to see and we anticipate the current sales trend continuing for the rest of 2021.”
Helas added: “This season’s product range is our best yet, with options designed to suit the needs of all golfers – whether they’re new to the game or established players. We will continue to pioneer the future direction of golf trolley innovation and gather research from golfers around the World to provide exactly what they’re looking for in future models and further cement our position as the ultimate club transportation provider.”
