Rapid growth of the construction industry across both developed and developing regions is driving the demand for power tools such as circular saws for various cutting applications in construction. The market is expected to witness steady growth on account of rising infrastructure development projects globally. Additionally, the demand for finer and sharper blades along with innovation in materials, such as diamond-tipped blades, is expected to support the market expansion. However, availability of counterfeit products may impede the growth of the circular saw blade market during the forecast period.

The Growing Construction Industry

The global construction industry has seen consistent growth over the past few years and this growth is expected to continue going forward. Many countries around the world are undergoing rapid urbanization as people migrate to cities for better livelihood opportunities. This has increased the demand for residential and commercial construction on a large scale.

All this construction requires extensive woodwork such as framing, flooring, furnishing, etc. Circular saws have become indispensable power tools for woodworkers and carpenters working on construction sites. Their ability to cut various types of wood and other construction materials with precision and efficiency makes them the preferred choice. Even small residential construction involves the use of circular saws for tasks like making door and window frames, roof framing and laying wooden floors. Large commercial and industrial construction involves a lot more woodwork requiring heavy duty circular saws that can cut through thick timber and plywood. With the construction sector growing globally in scale and value, the usage of circular saws has seen a proportional rise. Going forward, as building activity increases to house the world's growing urban populations, the demand for circular saws is expected to remain high.

For instance, in December 2021, Stanley Black & Decker, an American manufacturer of industrial tools and household hardware acquired Excel Industries, a leading Indian chemical company specializing in the manufacture and distribution of chemicals, agrochemicals, and pharmaceuticals for US$ 375 million, enhancing its commercial equipment product offerings, including circular blades, and expanding its presence in the market.

Renovation and Remodeling Boom

In addition to new construction, the renovation and remodeling sector has emerged as a major driver of the circular saw demand. In many developed countries, the existing housing stock is aging and consumers have more disposable income nowadays to invest in home renovations and improvements. This has created a huge remodeling and renovation market worth billions. Homeowners regularly undertake projects such as kitchen makeovers, bathroom face-lifts, basement finishing, deck building, fence installation, etc. which require extensive woodwork. Additionally, with evolving design trends, people remodel different areas of their homes more frequently than before.

A similar remodeling boom is being witnessed in commercial properties as well with malls, offices, retail outlets being refurbished or retrofitted periodically. Aging infrastructure also drives renovation activities in industrial facilities. All these remodeling works involve reconstruction tasks that utilize power wood cutting tools.

Key Takeaways from Analyst:

The growing construction industry around the world will be a key driver as circular saws are extensively used in construction activities. The market will also see opportunities arising from the renovation and remodeling sector. However, factors like availability of alternative cutting solutions may pose a challenge to volume growth.

The Asia Pacific region, led by China, India and other developing Asian countries is projected to remain the dominant as well as fastest growing market for circular saw blades. This can be attributed to the increased infrastructure development and construction activities in the region. North America and Europe are also expected to see steady demand owing to ongoing residential construction and R&R activities.

Within product type, Circular saw blades are likely to be the leading segment as they enable faster cutting of various materials. The demand for Circular saw blades is also set to rise given their precision cutting ability. Respective governments’ investment towards infrastructure development programs will also support the circular saw blade market across regions.

While organized players have a fairly established position, the market remains highly fragmented with the presence of several regional and local manufacturers. Industry participants may focus on portfolio expansion, especially in fast growing product types, to strengthen their position.

Market Challenges: Fluctuations in raw material prices

Fluctuations in raw material prices have significantly restrained the growth of the global circular saw blade market over the past few years. Circular saw blades are predominantly made from high-grade steel and other alloys that require raw materials such as steel, iron ore, aluminum, etc. The prices of these key raw materials are extremely volatile and depend on global economic conditions, demand-supply dynamics, trade policies of major countries, and geopolitical tensions.

Market Opportunities: Penetration in emerging economies

Penetration in emerging economies presents a massive opportunity for growth in the global circular saw blade market. Emerging economies across Asia Pacific, Africa, and Latin America are experiencing rapid industrialization and infrastructural development. This development has increased the demand for construction and woodworking activities in these regions.

Countries like India, China, Brazil, Indonesia, and others are witnessing significant growth in the construction of residential and commercial buildings, roads, bridges, and other infrastructure projects. This construction boom has led to a rise in demand for power tools and accessories required for cutting and processing of wood, metal, and other materials. Circular saw blades are one of the most important and widely used power tools in construction sites as well as woodworking and metalworking shops. However, the market penetration of international circular saw blade brands has traditionally been low in emerging economies due to the price sensitivity of customers and availability of cheaper local alternatives.
