The global forestry power tool accessories market is segmented by product.
Based on the product, the global forestry power tool accessories market is bifurcated into saw chains, guide bars, trimmer lines, brush cutter blades, harvester chains, and spark plugs.
The saw chains segment dominates the global market and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.99% over the forecast period. Saw chains are major components in chainsaws. They are made of several steel links held together by rivets and sharp teeth outside the chain. They are flat inside to retain the saw bar and allow thrust by the motor. The loop of the cutter chain revolves around the bar and is operated at high speed to cut through wood. In addition, saw chains comprise various elements that function together and are properly maintained for enhanced performance and safety. The demand for chainsaws normally increases after storms and during cold winters, owing to the need to cut tree bark. This has increased chainsaw demand in palm oil and soybean production.
In addition, countries with frigid winters, such as Russia, Canada, and the United States, have a high demand for firewood due to the global increase in fuel prices. Since firewood suppliers are facing huge demand for wood in cold countries, the demand for efficient performance-based saw chains is expected to grow during the forecast period.
A saw chain is supported and guided by the guide bar. Solid nose and sprocket nose are the two most popular styles of bars. A sprocket in the nose of a sprocket nose bar helps the chain move easily around the bar and reduces drag. On small saws, a solid nose bar is usually encountered. The guide bars are made of long metal frames of either steel or a durable alloy, which helps monitor the performance of chainsaws. The act of felling trees within forested areas necessitates the utilization of guide bars of superior quality to provide adequate support for saw chains. Guide bars are usually tested by making a prototype of the steel bar through laser cutting. Later on, to increase the toughness and hardness of the product, it undergoes salt bath heat treatment for maximum toughness and hardness. The steel bar is strengthened to bear the tension of the chain.
Trimmer lines are made of lightweight composite nylon that is durable to provide extra strength to resist breakage. Nylon is a typical material used in trimmer lines, a synthetic, hard monofilament that can be used in most cutting tasks. Nylon trimmer lines are produced in various colors to make the lines visible while cutting and trimming. Several vendors manufacture trimmer lines using nylon for better durability. Moreover, the emphasis is also laid on wind resistance and the product's noise to avoid frequent replacements frequently.
Harvester saw chains are fitted with preventative measures and durable chain cutters to give a secure, reliable cutting performance for every harvester application in any capacity. The growing population has increased food production in Asian countries such as China and India, creating a huge demand for sophisticated harvesters, thereby fostering the need for harvester chains in dense fields and forests. The utilization of tools in conjunction with Harvester chains results in the occurrence of chain wear and tear. As a result, the chain had to be replaced at a considerable cost. The chain had to deal with large loads and significant friction, and dirt and crop dust also got into the pins and bushings. The chain also gets eroded by water and fertilizers. The replacement cost for chains in these machines is thus prohibitive.
