Major Challenges:

  • Low penetration of portable power tools in developing and emerging countries 
    • In the global market for portable power tools, developed nations dominate revenue generation. This is primarily due to the higher prices of these tools compared to manual alternatives. In developed countries, skilled professionals like plumbers and mechanics earn more, often on an hourly basis.
    • This enables them to afford advanced power tools, boosting their productivity and income. Conversely, in developing nations, fixed job-based payments make such tools less accessible. While the Do-It-Yourself trend is growing worldwide, it mainly drives demand for manual tools in developing regions due to economic disparities.
    • Consequently, the portable power tools market is hindered from realizing its full potential, overly reliant on developed nations. To counteract this, there’s a need to develop affordable power tools tailored for emerging economies, which represent the majority of the global population. Addressing these challenges is crucial for unlocking growth opportunities in the portable power tools sector.
