Global Power Tools Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
COVID-19 had a tremendous impact on various industries including automotive, infrastructure, and manufacturing. To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, various governments have declared lockdowns, resulting in a huge impact on pneumatic power tool manufacturing companies, since factories throughout the world have been temporarily shut down.
On the supply side, the business of power tools was severely hampered as most of the countries had announced lockdown. Due to the pandemic, output across industries has been constrained, resulting in a lack of raw materials for pneumatic power tools. The key reasons leading to a drop in production are the decline in exports and interruptions in the supply chain. However, in the long term, India pneumatic power tools is expected to grow significantly, as market players are focusing on boosting manufacturing activities to meet pneumatic power tools demand
Global Power Tools Market Drivers:
Growing adoption of cordless power tools to drive growth of the global power tools market during the forecast period
Globally, the adoption of power tools has increased significantly in the recent past. This is owing to major advantages offered by cordless tools over corded tools such as portability, lightweight, and less equipment to carry. Corded power tools essentially bulky in handling, and since they are connected to a power source, users find it difficult in maneuvering the tool. Furthermore, corded power tools are connected to an electric source and if there is no electricity offered, these tools cannot be used. This can pose a major challenge when construction begins. Besides, corded power tools require frequent replacement of cords since faulty cords can pose a potential safety hazard to uses. For instance, to avoid this kind of threats in October 2022, Panasonic, a manufacturer of electrical products launched their new Cordless Impact Driver EY1PD1 with a very short body length of only 98mm for high power impact tightening even in narrow areas. Cordless power tools can be maneuvered easily and are lightweight, hence they are more convenient to operate. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global power tools market during the forecast period.
Rapid growth of the infrastructure sector, especially in emerging economies to propel the global power tools market growth over the forecast period
The infrastructure sector is growing rapidly, especially in emerging economies such as China, India, South Africa, and Brazil. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India is expected to become the third-largest construction market globally by 2023. According to the same source, India is expected to invest around US$ 1.4 trillion on infrastructure during 2019-2023 for the sustainable development of the country. Rapid infrastructure development has led to increased demand for various power tools such as electric drill machine, hammer drill, impact driver, electric screwdriver, rotary hammer, and many more. Thus, these factors are expected to propel the global power tools market growth over the forecast period.
Global Power Tools Market Opportunities:
Need for standardized, simplified accounts receivable processes
Growing demand for power tools software due to various factors such as working capital of firms, more invoice disputes, less agent productivity among others is expected to create significant growth opportunities in the global power tools market during the forecast period. Increasing number of firms across industries are reviewing accounting automation systems, as companies cannot wait and manage manual accounting challenges. Other factors such as slower collections of deposits, and need for standardized, simplified accounts receivable processes is also creating demand for accountable receivable automation. Thus, these factors will bring several growth opportunities in the market during the forecast period.
Growing adoption of artificial intelligence technology
Moreover, growing adoption of artificial intelligence technology is also anticipated to create lucrative environment for growth opportunities in the global power tools market during the forecast period. With increasing use of cloud-based technology, AI adoption continued at a stable pace in 2022, with more than a third of companies (35%) reporting the use of AI in their business, a four-point increase from 2021. A major driver of adoption was accessibility that made AI easier to implement across the organization, though companies are also looking to AI to help them increase automation of tasks and reduce costs. The gap in AI adoption between larger and smaller companies also grew significantly. Larger companies are now 100% more likely than smaller companies to have deployed AI in their organization, compared with only 69% in 2021.
Global Power Tools Market Trends:
Lithium-ion batteries replacing NI-CD and NI-MH batteries
Previously, the majority of power tools were corded, which made it challenging to work in compact places. However, with cordless tools, it has become more convenient to work in any environment. Lithium-ion batteries are typically used in new cordless power tools, which are rapidly replacing NI-CD and NI-MH batteries. Li-ion batteries offer various advantages over NI-CD batteries including enhanced energy density, low maintenance, and easy replacement.
Rising DIY activities is another key trend in the market
Do-it-yourself or DIY activities refer to the method of repairing, building, and modifying objects without direct help from professionals. The trend of DIY activities increasing, especially in terms of home gardening, carpentry, and other activities, where people are using power tools such as electric drills and electric screwdrivers. Furthermore, as people were constrained at home due to COVID-19 pandemic and stringent laws related to public gatherings, DIY activities have gained a significant pace among people.

|Restraints & Challenges:||
Global Power Tools Market Restraints:
High purchase and maintenance cost to restrain growth of the global power tools market during the forecast period
Although, power tools offer efficiency and speed in construction activities, it requires timely maintenance operations. The batteries in cordless power tools need to be inspected and changed routinely. Besides, power tools are significantly more expensive than a hand-operated tool and hence only construction companies and workers often purchase these tools instead of casual users. Therefore, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global power tools market during the forecast period.
Constant fluctuations in raw material prices to hamper the global power tools market growth over the forecast period
Another major impeding growth of the market is the constant fluctuations in the raw material prices. Raw materials used in power tools include steel, plastic, rubber, and copper. The prices of these raw materials have witnessed constant fluctuations in the recent past, owing to changing economical dynamics. Thus, these factors are expected to hinder the global power tools market growth over the forecast period.
