The global power tools market size was valued at USD 26.61 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 27.51 billion in 2023 to USD 36.82 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period.

Power tools are primarily used in operations such as cutting, wrenching, saw drills, and polishing materials. They are used in varied industries, such as automotive, aerospace, construction, petrochemical, oil and gas, and others, to ease complex operations. These tools are handy and easy to operate, providing comfort while operating, and allowing one to achieve desired results. The global market is projected to grow significantly in the forecast period owing to the adoption of cordless power equipment. However, high maintenance cost of moving parts and fluctuating prices of raw material are weakening by the open market trade flow.

Companies cater to their products in two divisions, professional and consumer products. Professional products include corded or cordless tools such as pneumatic and fasteners (wrenches and drivers, drills, saws, guns, nails, concrete, masonry anchors, and others). On the other side, hedge trimmers, string trimmers, lawnmowers, and edgers are a few gardening products that fall under the consumer product division.


Slowdown in Production Activities Impeded the Market Growth

Considering the initial COVID-19 impact, Wuhan has been a traditional manufacturing base of modern industrial manufacturing of optoelectronic technology, automotive manufacturing, iron manufacturing, and steel manufacturing. Thus, it negatively affected the production activities in various industries, significantly hampering the market growth.

For instance, the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) in reports stated that car sales in China were cut down by 92% in the first half of February 2020.

Development of Multi-Purpose Products and Additional Accessories to Lay the Foundation for Future Growth

Companies, such as Atlas Copco AB, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, Techtronic Industries Co. Ltd., and others, are developing energy-efficient power tool products with innovative technologies. Industry leaders are also focusing on introducing multi-purpose machines that can be used precisely while conducting numerous operations. On the other hand, consumers are banking on cordless power tool products that are easy to operate on high-torque, light in weight, compact, and efficient. Therefore, consumers' increasing demand for errorless products allows companies to achieve their height of disruptive innovations. As a result, the development of innovative products is projected to bolster the demand in the future ahead.


Expansion of the Construction Industry and Manufacturing Sector in Emerging Economies to Boost Growth

The rapid expansion of the construction industry is a major factor influencing the global power tools market growth. Key players are manufacturing corded and cordless power tools that allow construction workers to use them across various applications. Also, small and mid-sized manufacturing enterprises are bound to use these tools to their capabilities and flexibility. Additionally, leading manufacturers across the globe offer advanced products through collaboration and research.

For instance, in May 2018, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation partnered with Triax Technologies, Inc. to develop a tracking solution device. Also, it allows construction firms to track the location of equipment & tools and monitor real-time worker, asset utilization, and safety data.


Price Fluctuations of Raw Materials to Hinder Market Growth

Power tools in industries are creating a leveraging opportunity in industrialized countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Japan, China, India, and others. However, continuous price fluctuation of raw materials in the global market is an important factor affecting the market growth. Due to price hack, common materials in the industry, such as steel, aluminum, and semiconductor chips, have been impacted badly in the international market. Hence, market volatility and regular price fluctuation in raw materials are the prime factors that hampered the market growth.

For instance, according to the International Study Group, considering the coming deficit in 2021, the copper shortfall at the global level was 441,000 tons, which is 2% less than demand for refined metal and is intended to hike copper prices by 25%.
