Power tools aid to efficiency and effectiveness in various operations executed at industrial or DIY applications including chipping, drilling, polishing, threading, cutting etc. Power driven woodworking tools, nail guns, heat guns, rivet guns and other tools are expected to gain significant traction in the market. Demand for power tools is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5% to US$ 36.2 Bn in 2020 and US$ 46.5 Bn in 2025. In contrast, hand tools market revenues are projected to witness growth rates of above 3%, as end-users show an increasing preference for power tools. The key trends expected to shape up the global power tools market include, 

  • Higher Demand for Lithium-ion Batteries vis-à-vis Ni-Cd

Lithium-ion batteries are becoming the preferred choice for power tools manufacturers, owing to their advantages over Ni-Cd batteries. Power tool companies are focusing on catering to end-user demand for lightweight and energy-efficient systems. Lithium-ion batteries offer these features at an economical cost, making them sought-after in the power tools industry.

  • Cordless Power Tools Gaining Popularity

Although cordless power tools are more expensive than their corded counterparts, ease of use and enhanced safety are making them popular, especially among DIYers. The demand for cordless power tools is anticipated to witness a steady increase during the forecast period, as adoption grows in developing countries.

  • Global Housing Sector Recovery

Demand for both hand and power tools is massively dependent on the fortunes of the construction sector. The subprime crisis of 2007-08 shrinked demand for hand and power tools; however, as global economy recovery and construction sector witnesses steady growth, demand for power tools is projected to remain strong during the forecast period.

  • Domination of China-manufactured Power Tools

Low price of China-manufactured power tools will continue to pose stiff competition to branded power tools. The domination of Chinese power tools of the global market is expected to continue during the forecast period. Currently, China accounts for nearly 80% of the total power tools produced globally. 

Global Power Tools Market Forecast & Analysis by Mode of Operation 

Approximately 200 million units of electric power tools were sold globally in 2015, a significant lead over 88 million pneumatic power tools.

Report Description

Future Market Insights report examines the global power tools market for the period 2015–2025. The primary objective of the report is to offer updates on the technological advancements made in the power tools industry and about the latest trends that are significantly transforming consumer experiences.

Power tool functions through the use of an external power source and mechanism, rather than by the manual labour as is the case with hand tools. By category, tools can be segmented into power tools and hand tools. Most common types of power tools are powered by electric motors. Power tools are used for construction, gardening, household tasks, drilling, cutting, shaping, sanding, grinding, routing, polishing, painting, heating and various other purposes. There are several types of power tools, based on the power source they use: electric power operated tools (e.g. circular saws, drill machines), pneumatic power tools (e.g. hammers, chippers and compressed air guns), liquid fuel (gas) powered tools (e.g. saws), hydraulic power tools (jacks), and powder-actuated tools (nail guns).
