Power tools refer to the devices that are activated using a power source apart from manual labor. Power tools are used to wrench, saw, drill, polish, and cut materials. Thus, they are used across several end-use applications such as packaging, repair, production, assembling, and maintenance and repair jobs. Easy operability, portability, and reduced need for labor are driving the deployment of power tools across several industries.
The primary factor fuelling the power tool market is the growing adoption of these tools in the construction industry because of the increased accuracy, efficiency, and safety of the workforce. Further, the tools have gained immense prominence in household applications owing to their easy portability and user-friendliness. With the increase in the do-it-yourself trend, household users are increasingly demanding power tools with enhanced safety. In addition, the ongoing research and development activities with a surge in technological innovations, such as the emergence of smart technology and the transformation in battery technology, are other factors projected to fuel the power tools market size.
However, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus is projected to hamper the growth of the power tools market. The strict lockdown enforced across the nation to curb the spread of the virus disrupted the supply chain, which resulted in a slowdown across the automotive and construction industries. Nevertheless, the revival of industries in the near future is likely to upkeep the market growth.
