The power tools market is expected to be worth USD 35.58 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2017 and 2023. The constantly growing construction industry in emerging economies, increasing sales of commercial vehicles across the world, and rising demand for cordless tools. However, the high maintenance cost associated with power tools hinders the market growth. The market has been segmented on the basis of mode of operation, tool type, application, and geography.

In 2016, electric tools held the largest share of the overall power tools market. Corded electric tools are wired tools used as handheld tools. Corded tools need a continuous power supply; therefore, they never run out of power, unlike cordless tools. Corded tools offer more torque than cordless fastening tools. The electric tools market is dominated by corded tools. Due to the improvement in batteries due to a strong replacement of Ni-Cd batteries with Li-Ion batteries and increasing adoption of cordless tools help the market for cordless tools to grow at a higher rate.

Drilling and fastening tools held the largest share of the overall market in 2016. Electric drilling and fastening tools are used by professionals as well as DIY consumers, while most pneumatic drilling and fastening tools are used in industrial environments, such as automotive and aerospace manufacturing plants. The increase in the adoption of fastening tools, such as impact tools, screwdrivers, and nutrunners, is due to the continuously growing automotive sales all over the world and the rising installation of wind power plants as these tools are essential elements in automotive assembly and wind turbine installation operations.

The construction industry held the largest share of the power tools market in 2016. The construction industry is the largest shareholder of the market. Power tools play an important role at every stage of the construction activity, including the design, survey, construction, and maintenance phases. They are used for various construction applications such as drilling, driving, demolition, concrete cutting, and polishing. Tools such as impact drills, drivers, and rotary hammers are widely used in construction projects. The growing construction activities in countries such as the US, China, and India, demand technologically advanced and innovative power tools, thereby driving the market growth.

Power Tools Market

The APAC region is expected to be the fastest-growing region for the market owing to the continuous infrastructural growth in major countries such as China and India, rising automotive sales all over the world, and increasing installation of wind power plants. China is investing heavily in infrastructure development and urban area planning. This investment in construction projects would drive the market. With the growing urbanization in India, there has been a huge demand for power tools for the construction of urban development projects. Moreover, the shipbuilding industry in South Korea, Japan, and China is expected to fuel the growth of the market to a certain extent.

Power tools, such as assembly tools, are precision instruments. Lots of moving parts of power tools require regular maintenance. The cost of maintenance of power tools is high, and maintenance of these tools need to be carried out regularly. Also, the cost of ownership of power tools increases because of these maintenance and repair requirements. Hence, consumers in developing countries are leasing power tools, which is also hampering the growth of the market.

Atlas Copco (Sweden), Apex Tool Group (US), Robert Bosch (Germany), Hilti (Liechtenstein), Makita (Japan), Ingersoll-Rand (Ireland), Stanley Black & Decker (US), Techtronic Industries (TTI) (Hong Kong), Hitachi Koki (Japan), and  Snap-on  (US) are the major players in the market.

Other key players in the market include C. & E. Fein  (Germany), Emerson Electric (US), Chevron Group (China), Panasonic (Japan), TTS Tooltechnic Systems (Germany), Illinois Tool Works (US), Positec Group (China), CS Unitec (US), FRIEDRICH DUSS (Germany), Uryu Seisaku (Japan), Deprag Schulz (Germany), KYOCERA (Japan), AIMCO Global (US), INTERSKOL (Russia), and FERM (Netherlands). These players are focusing on product launches and developments, acquisitions, and collaborations to enhance their product offerings and expand their businesses.

Leading power tool manufacturers are developing cordless power tool solutions for growing popularity of DIY trend to drive the industry forward

Industrial/Professional

Power tools are used in several industries including construction, automotive, aerospace, energy, and shipbuilding.

The construction industry is at the leading position in the power tools market as these tools are used in a majority of construction projects. Automotive and energy industries have high growth opportunities in the near future owing to the rising commercial vehicle sales and increasing installation of renewable power plants across the world. Innovation in battery technology is driving the demand for cordless power tools and manufacturers are developing innovative solutions to drive the industry forward. For instance, in 2017, Stanley black & decker launched cordless products for chainsaws, circular saws, and track saws. Similarly, in 2017, Hilti launched cordless impact driver to meet the increasing demand for cordless products from professional end-users.

Residential/DIY

Mostly electric power tools are used in by DIY consumers for residential refurbishment and improvement projects. Residential and commercial construction applications have started showing signs of recovery around the world. Therefore, the use of power tools by DIY enthusiasts for remodeling and renovation projects is rising in developed countries such as the US, the UK, and Germany. However, the DIY culture is not very popular in APAC due to the availability of low-cost labor and high ownership cost of power tools. To attract the large consumer base in the DIY sector, manufacturers are focusing on developing ergonomic, lightweight cordless power tools. For instance, in 2017, Makita introduced 18 V cordless tools including cordless router and cordless circular saw for residential/DIY applications.

Key Trends in the power tools market

Wireless Charging Technology

An innovative concept of wireless charging has emerged in the power tool market. For instance, in 2014, Robert Bosch (Germany) launched wireless drills, batteries, and chargers. In 2009, Bosch partnered with Fulton Innovation (US) for the deployment of wireless charging technology in power tools. Wireless charging provides flexibility in charging tools and saves time as well as the extra cost of secondary batteries. Cordless tools enable operators to gain mobility and flexibility. Companies are continuously engaged in the development of wireless charging technologies, and many advanced products are still in an experimental phase; therefore wireless charging is a major technological advancement ongoing in the market.

High-density Lithium-Ion (Li–Ion) Batteries

Continuous technological developments in batteries help manufacturers to design efficient cordless electric power tools. For many years, nickel–metal hydride (Ni–MH or NiMH) and nickel–cadmium (NiCd or NiCad) batteries are being used in cordless power tools. However, with the introduction of lithium-ion (Li- Ion) batteries, cordless electric tool manufacturers have started using these batteries more frequently owing to their superior energy density and slow loss of charge when idle. As a supporting step for the use of Li-Ion batteries, the European Power Tool Association (EPTA) restrain the marketing of batteries with a cadmium content by weight of more than 0.002% from December 31, 2016.

Critical questions would be;

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • Will the suppliers need to shift from corded to cordless? 
  • What are the adjacent market which companies can leverage or explore?
  • Is there a threat from substitute products?
