Electric-powered chainsaws to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period

Consumers focus on purchasing more lightweight electric chainsaw than powerful professional forestry chainsaws in the forestry and agricultural sectors. Pruning and trimming around the yard area and cutting of smaller-sized branches of trees are the key application segments catered by electric chainsaws. The electric chainsaw segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during 2018-2024. Electric chainsaws offered by Makita such as Makita UC4051A electric chainsaws are more powerful and weigh low than its counterparts, thereby proving to efficient and productive. Also, this model generates less noise than other models.

The commercial sector is expected to be the largest growing segment in the global chainsaw market

The commercial sector is expected to have incremental growth during the forecast period and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 5%. Shifting preference of consumers for eco-friendly products is a factor expected to bolster market growth. The commercial sector occupies more than half of the market in terms of revenue and shipment. The commercial usage of chainsaws is expected to vary from lightweight to medium to heavy-duty activities. Gas-powered chainsaws have increasingly seen substantial adoption in the commercial application segments. Growth opportunities in North America are mainly attributed to the development in the product line-up, such as greater efficiency, power, battery run-time, ergonomics coupled with the expansion of the commercial market.

The North America market to experience the highest incremental growth during the forecast period

North America was the largest segment of the global chainsaw market, accounting for a market share of over 40% in terms of revenue in 2018. Factors such as favorable fixed investment climate along with the acceleration in economic activities are expected to play a significant role in impacting the forest equipment demand in North America. The forest equipment market is expected to witness increasing demand due to factors such as rebound in the production of roundwood, increase in mechanization techniques, and introduction of emission standards in North America. The tropical cyclone in the North American region is expected to affect the entire region along with the Gulf Coasts. Chainsaws prove to be useful in such conditions to clear the trees fallen due to cyclonic or hurricane conditions. Vendors use latest and advanced technologies emission-free chainsaws, turbo air cleaning, vibration damping, and chain brake that reduce hassles and maintenance challenges.

A few other prominent vendors in the global chainsaw market are Makita Corp., MTD Products, Yamabiko Corp., The Toro Company, EMAK, Techtronic Industries, Stanley Black & Decker, Globe Tools Group, Zomax GROUP, SUMEC, WEN Products, AL-KO KOBER, Snow Joe, Hitachi Power Tools, Lowe’s Companies (Kobalt) , Pellenc, Einhell Germany, Generac Power Systems Inc., Positec Tool, Active, Chervon, Cobra, Rochford Garden Machinery, Talon Tough Tools, and R&R Products.
