This report analyses the market for portable power and hand tools, for use in building, home improvement and garden applications – incorporating both professional and DIY tool versions, but excludes industrial and automotive uses, and large/machine tools. Tool distribution comprises a number of routes to market including home improvement multiples, industrial products distributors, builders’ merchants, tool specialists and the Internet.
Tool demand is heavily dependent on levels of construction activity, including non-domestic construction, housebuilding and RMI work (repair, maintenance & improvement). Construction activity has been impacted by Brexit and delays to investment.
Tool distribution comprises a mix of large national players competing with many regional and local companies, in both trade and consumer channels. Buying behaviour, influenced by digital technology, has seen a change in the way companies deliver their proposition. Operating a transactional website has become increasingly important, and this has meant an increase in multi-channel and omni-channel retailing, with the Internet emerging as a key channel.
Prospects for the overall market remain positive, as the core foundations of long term demand from construction activity remain solid, including housing, renovation & maintenance of an ageing housing stock and demand from non-domestic sectors.
