How will the COVID-19 coronavirus impact the global economy? The Freedonia Group is tracking recent developments and analyzing their impact in an easy to follow Economic Impact Tracker.

This report encompasses electric (plug-in and battery-powered), pneumatic, and other (hydraulic, powder-actuated, and engine-driven) portable power tools, parts, and attachments for them that are used in a variety of applications. Types of power tools and their parts and attachments include:

  • drills
  • hammers
  • impact wrenches
  • nailers and staplers
  • percussion tools (such as utility hammers and riveting hammers)
  • planers and routers
  • saws (e.g., circular, reciprocating, miter)
  • sanders, polishers, and grinders
  • screwdrivers
  • other power tools such as cutting tools, engravers, glue guns, leveling devices, lubricating equipment, nibblers, nutrunners, riveters, and shears
  • parts and attachments such as batteries, battery chargers, chiseling tools, dies, drill bits, drill chucks, driver bits, dust collection systems, grinding discs, hammer heads, sanding belts, sanding pads, and saw blades

Demand is also segmented by market:

  • professional:
    • construction
    • automotive aftermarket
    • industrial and other professional (e.g., manufacture of aerospace equipment, fabricated metal products, furniture, machinery, motor vehicles; mining; government)
  • consumer

Demand is also measured by distribution channel, including:

  • home centers (e.g., Lowe’s, Home Depot)
  • direct sales and distributors (including direct sales, independent distributors, and mobile sales representatives)
  • hardware stores (e.g., True Value, Ace)
  • e-commerce
  • mass marketers (e.g., Walmart, Target, Costco, Sam’s Club)
