This study examines global supply and demand for professional power tools. Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 are provided for power tool demand by product, market, and power source on a country-by-country basis.

Power tools are segmented into:

  • electric tools
    • drills
    • saws (e.g., circular, reciprocating)
    • sanders, polishers, grinders
    • other electric tools, including hammers, impact wrenches, planers and routers, and screwdrivers
    • batteries, parts, and attachments (e.g., drill chucks, driver bits, sand belts)
  • pneumatic tools (e.g., nailers, staplers, sanders, riveters, drills, screwdrivers, nutrunners, riveting hammers)
  • tools powered by other energy sources, including:
    • hydraulic (e.g., automotive service tools, drills, impact wrenches, rotary hammers, saws, spreaders)
    • powder-actuated (e.g., nailers, staplers)
    • engine-driven tools (framing nailers, drills, saws)

Electric tool demand is also presented by power source (plug-in, cordless).

Excluded from the scope of this study are:

  • air compressors
  • chainsaws
  • hand tools such as manual screwdrivers and saws
  • machine tools such as CNC equipment
  • nail and staple cartridges
  • table and wall-mounted saws
  • hydraulic jacks

Demand is presented in dollar terms. Demand in value terms is shown at the manufacturers’ level and excludes distributor and retailer markups.
