World Power Tools Market

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

World Power Tools Market


World demand to rise 4.6% annually through 2016

World power tool demand is forecast to increase 4.6 percent annually through 2016 to $28.1 billion. Global demand will improve significantly from 2006- 2011 market gains, spurred by continued demand in developing regions. Recovery in the bedrock US market will also benefit demand, bolstered by the rebound in US housing construction. In addition, continued industrialization in the developing world will boost demand.

China dominates production, India to grow the fastest

China has become the dominant producer of power tools. China has become increasingly important over the last decade, as both a key supplier and user of power tools. Between 2001 and 2011 production in the country more than doubled, while demand during this same period quadrupled. Major export markets for Chinese made power tools include its regional neighbors, the US, and Western Europe. In recent years, other developing countries have also risen as notable suppliers and users of power tools, although none of these countries have experienced the same degree of growth as China. India will increase at the fastest rate of any country, expanding more than 10 percent per year through 2016.

Industrialized countries to remain largest markets

Power tool demand will continue to be heaviest among industrialized countries. The intensity of power tool use in these countries is a byproduct of their sizable professional markets, as well as a large consumer base. However, power tool saturation is much higher in these nations and, going forward, demand gains will trail growth in developing countries.

Cordless electric tools to be fastest growing products Cordless electric tools will experience the most robust growth through 2016, advancing 8.3 percent per year. Cordless tools will continue to replace plug-in models, as technological improvements have shortened the power advantage that corded tools once held. In the aggregate, electric power tools account for the majority of all power tool demand, as they are used extensively by both professionals and consumers in most applications. Pneumatic tools will be spurred by rising motor vehicle production, which itself is a byproduct of industrialization in the developing world. Demand for engine-driven and other tool types (e.g., hydraulic, powder-actuated) will benefit from a recovery in the world's forestry industry, as lumber is a key material used in the construction industry. Additionally, the continued need for these tools in niche applications will support advances.

Professional demand to outpace consumer market

Professional demand, which accounted for 70 percent of global power tool sales in 2011, will outpace consumer demand through 2016. Within the professional market there are numerous specific applications where power tools find use; however, the three primary outlets are in the automotive (including automotive aftermarket), construction, and manufacturing industries. Consumer users of power tools include do-it-yourselfers (DIYers), hobbyists, and homeowners. Demand for power tools in the consumer market tends to be less dependent on government trends. Instead, cultural preferences and personal income levels are a more significant indicator of consumer power tool demand.

Study coverage

This upcoming Freedonia industry study, World Power Tools, is priced at $6300. It presents historical demand data (2001, 2006, and 2011) as well as forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product, market, world region, and for 25 countries. The study also considers key market environment factors, evaluates company market share, and profiles 34 industry competitors.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
