Technical drawing tool refers to drawings that are used to visually communicate how something is constructed. Technical drawings, sketches, and graphic images can be created using a variety of instruments, such as rulers, compasses, pencils, and a variety of triangles as well as by using the computer. Such equipment is used to make legible drawings and accurate models. A computer can be used for modeling and drawing and is widely preferred. Traditional drawing instruments are important, particularly for freehand sketching and for experimenting with lines and shapes. Technical drawing tools are useful and are widely adopted by consumers across the globe while sketching, drawing, or attempting basic graphics work. Technical drawing is important in several industries in order to generate better ideas that are associated with industries and engineering. To make the drawings easier to understand, people use familiar symbols, perspectives, notation systems, units of measurement, page layout, and visual styles. Together, such conventions constitute a visual language and help to ensure that the drawing is unambiguous and relatively easy to understand. Rise in demand for accuracy has resulted in the development of more technologically advanced tools over the years. Manufacturers focus on continuous research and development in order to develop technologically advanced products that help consumers to work accurately and in lesser time.
The global technical drawing tools market has been segmented in terms of different product types, methods, application, and distribution channel. Based on methods, the technical drawing tools market has been segmented into sketching, computer aided designs, and manual. On the basis of different product types, the market has been segmented into protractor, mechanical pencils, compass, and ruler. By different drawing material, the market has been segmented into drafting paper, thick draft paper, tracing paper, and cloth inks among others. Based on application, the technical drawing tools market has been segmented into engineering and industrial. In terms of distribution channels, the market has been segmented into online distribution channel and offline distribution channel. Online distribution channel is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to the convenience factor.
Rapid product innovation with unique features has resulted in the rise in demand for technical drawing tools in recent years. However, rising prices and rapid change in technologies is restraining the global technical drawing tools market. Development of new technologies that result in lesser time in drawing is expected to generate opportunity to the global technical drawing tools market during the forecast period. Companies focus on developing innovative products in order to grab more number of customers in the coming years.
In terms of region, the global technical drawing tools market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America and Europe captured a significant market share owing to the rise in 3D techniques in the regions. 3D drawings are an important technique to represent a structure virtually. Developing 3D techniques manually entails considerable time; hence, manufacturers focus on developing technologically advanced methods to generate results faster. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to the continuous research and development among the manufacturers in order to develop new products.
The manufacturers of technical drawing tools face intense competition and are focused on product innovation. Some of the major players in the global technical drawing tools market are Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd, Hindustan Pencil Pvt Ltd, Staedtler, Newell Brands Inc., Pentel Co., Ltd. Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd., and Faber Castle Corporation among others.
