US$ 30 Bn Opportunity in the Global Power Tools Market

Oct 11,2016 | Industrial Automation & Equipment

Global power tools market revenues are expected to surpass US$ 30 Bn in 2017, on account of resurgence in construction activity and all-pervasive DIY trend. Rising housing investment, steady growth of automotive sales, and demand from semiconductor industry will continue to fuel the growth of the global power tools market during the forecast period 2015-2025. Recovery in North America’s housing sector and automotive growth in China and India will contribute to the growing demand for power tools. In contrast, intense pricing competition and availability of cheap, unbranded power tools can pose challenges to overall growth. 

Power tools will continue to outsell hand tools, as need for faster completion of projects will influence buying decisions. Demand for power tools will also be supported by their applications in house renovations and other DIY tasks. By 2025, global construction volume is projected to reach US$ 15 trillion, with nearly 60% of revenues expected to remain concentrated in China, India, and the U.S. Leading power tools manufacturers are focusing on China, India, and the U.S. to leverage on the projected demand for power tools in these markets. Other major trends anticipated to shape up the market include a steady shift from corded to cordless and preference for Lithium-ion batteries vis-à-vis Ni-Cd batteries.
