Market Dynamics

Growing Construction Activities

The global construction industry continues to grow at a considerable speed. Even though the recent coronavirus pandemic has halted most of the projects globally, the overall long terms outlook for the construction industry looks positive and is anticipated to grow above the global GDP in the coming decade.

As per Oxford Economics, the global construction industry is likely to grow by around 85 percent to reach a value of USD 15.5 Trillion by the year 2030, and the countries such as the U.S, China, and India, leading the way. The construction industry involves large volumes of wood that is used for building and used as scaffolding for various activities during the construction. Chain saw is used extensively in the construction sector to cut the wood logs, plywood’s, and other wooden articles into various shapes with ease. Growth in the construction industry will be directly proportional to the growth of the chain saw market.

Ban on Cutting of Tress May Hamper Market Demand

Human society and the world economy intrinsically linked to forests.  As per the World Research Institute, around 1 Billion people globally depend on forests for their livelihood. It is a well-known fact that the forest ecosystem plays a crucial role in stabilizing the global climate, provide food, water, vital medicinal plants among other things. Due to rampant deforestation, around 30 percent of the global forest cover has been cleared and around 20 percent has been degraded due to deforestation.

Furthermore, as per World Wildlife Fund, trade in the forest products has increased considerably over the last 50 years, specifically in the pulpwood, wood-based panels, sawn timber, boards among other things.  All these factors coupled with rising global temperatures are nudging countries to put a check on rampant deforestation so as to align their national goals with the Paris Climate Treaty. A stringent check on forest wood cutting is likely to create hindrance to the growth of chainsaw market during the assessment period.

Segmental Analysis

Electric Chain Saw to Show Promising Growth

Electric chain saws have been seeing a surge in demand as compared to conventional gas powered chain saws, primarily due to ease of use and operation, reduced vibrations and noise, ease of storage among other factors. Electric chain saws are seeing a high demand due to increase in the collective consciousness about the ill effects of gas-powered chain saws that can contribute to the global warming protentional with the emissions. Increasing government regulations to curb the menace of carbon pollution and handholding of the industry to switch to cleaner options in technology with tax rebates and subsidies are nudging manufacturers to come up green technologies in machines.

Furthermore, chains have been found to be a convenient option to cut down unwanted trees, shrubs, small tress with ease, hence it is one of the go to options by independent household with lawns. A continued focus of industry players on product innovation and increasing investments in research and development will further propel the market demand for electric chain saw market during the assessment period.

Regional Analysis

North American Market to Show a Promising Growth During Assessment Period

North America is the leading region in the world in terms of Per Capita income and the region has a vast landscape of tress and wood which is favorable for the growth of lumbering and allied industries.

The wood products industry has played a crucial role in the economy of the North American region. The region is blessing with forests such as tundra, boreal, tropical, montane and others which find a high demand in various industries.  As per the Agribusiness Consulting study commissioned by the U.S. Hardwood Federation, sales of hardwood products in U.S amounted to around USD 348.1 Billion in the year 2016.

For instance, Husqvarna in the year 2019 launched new product line for gardens, lawns and tree care professional. The company announced next gen 70cc chainsaw named 572XP. Furthermore, National Association of Landscape Professional’s (NALP’s) Industry Growth Initiative conducted a survey in U.S and found that around 40 percent of the lawn owners in U.S hired professionals for lawn or landscape work in the year 2017. This highlights the growth protentional for chain saw market in the coming years.

The construction sector in U.S is another sector that is a major contributor for the growth of the region. As per the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the construction sector created around USD 1.3 Trillion worth of structures every year and employees around 7 million people in U.S alone. Chain saws find extensive application in the construction industry and the growth in the construction industry will directly translate into the growth of the chain saw market during the assessment period.

Furthermore, in Mexico there has been a resurgent growth in the industrial sector that is seeing heavy participation of both public and private player investments in prominent infrastructure projects. The Government has proposed to spend around USD 43 Billion on infrastructure projects in during the year 2020-2024. The country’s infrastructure development is one of the key influencing factors that will propel the growth of chainsaw market that is used extensively in the construction of infrastructure projects.

However, the recent corona virus pandemic has created hindrances to the growth of the chainsaw market with the disruption of supply chain and transport sectors. The stalling of construction projects and plummeting of demand for wood that is used a capital good in various industry are likely to impact the market growth in the short run.
