Market Insights

In spite of product improvements and innovations, the market for power tools witnessed sluggish sales during the start of this decade. The sluggish growth can be credited to the dependence of power tools on macroeconomic conditions, which have been highly unpredictable and unstable since the start of the economic slowdown in 2008. However, with financial markets showing stability off-late, resurgence in the construction and automotive sectors should propel demand for power tools. In the current scenario, countries including India and China have comparatively lower penetration rates owing to high upfront cost of power tools compared to hand tools. However, with intensifying competition, we expect unit prices of power tools to drop in the coming years.
