Asia Pacific to bolster with Growth Opportunities on the backdrop of rise in Infrastructural Development

Based on regions, the global power tools market has been observing a rise in demand from North America and Asia Pacific. However, North America has reached the saturation level and may not see any further growth. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is flourishing withy growth opportunities. In 2014, the Asia Pacific region held a market share of 34% in the global power tools market. The rise of infrastructural development in cities such as China and India has been critical in promoting the demand of power tools market. The Asia Pacific was valued at US$8.8 bn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$13.4 bn by 2021, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% in the forecast period.  In North America, the U.S and Canada are expected to lead the power tools market due to the increase in changing lifestyle. In the construction industry, the rise of power tools is likely to secure demand in North America during the forecast period.

The global power tools market showcases an intensive vendor landscape. This market is highly competitive in nature and the companies leading are extensively focusing on product innovation as one of their growth strategies. Some of the prominent players operating in the global power tools Stanley Black and Decker Inc., Robert Bosch GmbH, Makita Corporation, Hilti, Actuant Corporation, and others.

Power tools are primarily used in manufacturing and construction industry for the purpose of reducing workload and increasing the output. These tools have several types of operation such as drilling, chiseling, sanding and screw driving among others. The market has been analyzed to grow steadily due to the increasing need for infrastructure development in emerging economies.

There are various types of tools such as electric, pneumatic, which are operated with the help of external power sources. The economic condition in the developing nations such as India and China is changing which is creating a demand for urbanization. The power tools are one of the primary equipments in the construction industry. Furthermore, the rising concept of DIY technique is creating the demand of power tools in the residential sector. In addition, easy availability of these tools on e-commerce websites is also aiding to the growth of the market. Moreover, the use of the power tools reduces the time of the output. The idea of DIY was previously restricted to the developed regions like U.S. and the U.K. However, the changing lifestyle and increasing disposable income in the emerging economies is driving the idea of DIY thereby increasing the sale of power tools. In addition, the manufacturing industry is gradually recovering from the economic slowdown. This is return is creating a demand for the power tools market in the industrial sector. 

However, one factor that is hampering the growth of power tools is the additional maintenance cost associated with it.  The power tools once bought require continuous maintenance over a period of time, is limiting the demand in the market. Moreover, in some case, the contractors with limited funding take these tools on lease, which in turn blocks new market for power tools especially in developing nations. This factor is acting as a restraint for the market during forecast period.
