During the forecast period, an increase in the demand for more power and cordless tools, and technologically advanced tools made specifically for DIYers will contribute to the revenue of the power tools market. There is also a growing demand for smaller and more ergonomic tools in the market that are more powerful than traditional power tools. Electric power tools dominate the market, followed by pneumatic power tools, and engine-driven power tools. This segment is forecast to continue its market dominance through the forecast period.

Hand tools

Hand tools do not require any power source and involve manual labor to function. Some of the most popularly used hand tools are hammers, garden forks, rakes, spanners, screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches. The major driver for this segment is expected to be the demand generated from the growing home improvement market. Some of the key vendors catering to the customers in this segment are Actuant, Stanley Black and Decker, Bosch, and Techtronic.

Region wise, North America and Western Europe are the market leaders, contributing to most of the market revenue. In APAC, India and China bring in the highest demand for DIY tools like rulers, squares, and dividers. Globally, general purpose hand tools like hammers and pliers are the most demanded products, followed by metal cutting tools like hacksaws and bolt cutters. As these products are durable, any new demand for products from this segment will originate from new innovative products that have ergonomic designs and have multiple utilities.

Decorating tools

Decorating tools form a niche, but important segment of the global DIY tools market. It includes products like wallpaper scrapers and paintbrushes. In Europe, people view painting their homes and decorating it as a bonding activity, which creates a high demand for products from this segment. Since these tools are low-cost and require frequent replacements, there is a continuous demand for them,” says Poonam.

The increasing home ownerships worldwide will have a positive impact on the market, as it is believed that homeowners are more likely to spend on home improvement and remodeling than people living in rented houses.
