Bolstering housing investments to provide massive scope for portable tools market to grow

Major urbanization and infrastructural growth is being predominantly observed in some of the top countries from developing economies, including India and China. These regions are anticipated to create highly attractive markets for portable tools in the coming years. Sales in Japan grew with the gradual recovery of investments in the housing sector and the demand for restoration following the Great East Japan Earthquake. Also, a large chunk of population usually migrates from rural to urban areas in an effort to achieve better lifestyle and acquire high-quality economic services including education, healthcare, and work opportunities among others.

These urban areas require high maintenance and updated infrastructure, resulting in generating high demand for portable tools. Government support and increased outsourcing of manufacturing endeavors in developed regions will continue to propel industrialization in emerging countries, which is further anticipated to boost growth of regional markets over 2018-2026.

Increased automation may cause a major setback to the demand for portable tools in the global market

Various industries are increasing the use of the automation technology and thereby, lowering the need for manual control i.e. human labor, which is primarily attributed to the advantages of automation - reduced labor costs, mitigation for effects of labor shortage, reduced manufacturing lead time, and improved product quality. Governments in emerging countries such as China, India, South Africa, and Brazil, are progressively injecting funds for automating processes in the manufacturing sector.

Increased adoption of industrial automation in these regions is mainly due to gradual rise in labor wages. However, inclination of manufacturers on cost-cutting for a competitive edge will decrease the labor workforce, which in turn will hamper the adoption of PPE during the next few years. It is expected to have the greatest impact on global portable tools market and all the products involved in it.

On the other hand, the market also has to face the fluctuation in prices of raw materials used for tools, especially gardening tools. The rise in the cost of raw materials used for gardening tools directly affects operational costs of the manufacturing process, which is a primary concern among manufacturers. It ultimately destabilizes the supply chain and product selling price. The market is foreseen to be predominantly influenced by this factor during the forecast period.
