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.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Virgil consists of an open-source encryption library, which implements Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) (including RSA schema), a Key Management API, and a cloud-based Key Management Service (Virgil Keys). The Virgil Keys Service consists of a public key service and a private key escrow service. 

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.
