Report Overview

The global power tools market size was valued at USD 32.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2% from 2020 to 2027. Tools that are activated using a power source apart from manual labor are termed as power tools. They are used in multiple applications such as production and assembly lines, maintenance and repair, packaging, and DIY jobs. Ease and efficiency of operation, reduced time and labor requirements, and easy portability are some of the prominent factors driving the demand for power tools across various industries.

Germany power tools market size

Increasing adoption of power tools in the automotive and construction industry is anticipated to drive their demand over the next seven years. The automotive production and assembly lines involve a lot of fastening jobs. Power tools help in reducing the time associated with these redundant tasks, along with providing increased efficiency. Thus, power tools are increasingly used by vehicle manufacturers as well as the repair and maintenance service providers in the automotive industry. Similarly, the growing use of drills, sanders, wrenches, and other tools in the construction sector is augmenting the demand for these tools.

Power tools are gaining popularity in household applications owing to the easy operability and ease of mobility. The growing trend of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) activities has resulted in increased demand from household users. In order to cater to the requirements of users that are not trained professionals, companies are offering products with enhanced safety features. For instance, Bosh Power Tools offers special Bosch Protection features that include rotation control clutch in rotary hammer drills and restart protection in angle grinders.
