This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the different product sectors (drivers, drills & hammers, cutting & grinding and carpentry & wood working). Detailed reviews of the supply chain and distribution channels are provided. The report also provides a forecast of the market prospects to 2013.

The professional portable power tools market is a specialised sector of the overall portable power tool market and is defined as power tools that are designated as such and are understood to be designed and manufactured to ‘professional’ or ‘trade’ standards. ‘Portable’ means that the tools can be carried and operated by one person. This is a highly competitive that is mainly influenced by the performances of the construction, engineering & manufacturing industries and RMI activities as well as internal market influences including product development and legislation.

The market experienced sustained growth until 2007 but by the end of the year the impact of the ‘credit crunch’ began to affect the UK economy and the professional portable power tools market. The start of the recession in 2008 severely impacted the market with prospects deteriorating for 2009. However, the market is anticipated to begin recovery in 2011 and reach an estimated market size of £233 million by 2013. The market is expected to continue to be underpinned by product development and the short replacement cycles of many of the products. Forecasting at this time is extremely difficult and should the recession be longer and deeper than expected, this forecast could prove to be optimistic.

The key suppliers to this market are Makita, DeWalt/Black & Decker, Bosch and Hitachi. Scewfix, part of the general industrial products distributors channel, are dominant in the market and their success has helped to establish this channel as the dominant route to market for professional portable power tools.

The driving, drilling & breaking sector is the largest product category accounting for just over half of the market share, with the other two sectors, cutting & grinding and carpentry & wood working, accounting for almost equal shares of the remainder of the market.

The focus of product development is to reduce hand arm vibration and noise as well as dust extraction, designing user friendly and earth conscious tools. The introduction of lithium-ion technology has boosted the market and resulted in the cordless products sector gaining share from the corded products sector.

Other factors affecting the professional portable power tools market include imports, the volatility of the Sterling exchange rate against the US dollar and Euro as well as price increases in the market, primarily due to increasing fuel & energy prices and rising material costs.
