The hand tools and woodworking tools market size is expected to grow from USD 8.4 billion in 2021 to USD 10.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.0%.

The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing commercial as well as residential construction and infrastructure projects, adoption of hand tools in households for residential/DIY purposes as well as growing manufacturing setups and increasing repair and maintenance operations across the world. However, factors such as increase in safety risks and concerns due to improper use of hand tools are restraining the market growth.

On the flip side, the development of variable-size/multi-tasking single tools that cater to multiple operations might increase demand for hand tools, and increase in hand tool automation to reduce physical work might boost hand tool usage and are expected to create opportunities for the adoption of hand tools and woodworking tools in the coming years. Moreover, the lack of all-specification/dimension hand tools for end-users to be prepared for every possible area of application acts as a challenge for the hand tools and woodworking tools market.

They are providing customers with numerous additional benefits such as door-to-door delivery of products and provide an online display of an extensive variety of products and brands to choose from through their online e-commerce platforms. Various third-party distributors sell hand tools on the online platforms. This helps the customers compare, evaluate, study, and select the best suitable hand tool. These online platforms has enabled many hand tool manufacturers to sell their products directly to the end customers. Large manufacturing organizations can be seen launching their online distribution channels with their e-commerce platforms.

Professional end-users to hold the largest share of hand tools and woodworking tools market by 2026

The market for the professional end-user segment is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period. With the rising population and infrastructural development worldwide, professional applications such as plumbing, electrification, and carpentry have registered strong growth. Additionally, growth in other industries, such as oil & gas, electronics, automotive, aerospace, energy, mining, and shipbuilding, also contribute to the growth of the professional usage of hand tools & woodworking tools with the increasing application areas.
