World Power Tools Market

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions?

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
