FIRST LOOK ON POWER TOOLS

Report Number HT 090

U.S. power tool sales slowed in 2014 after increasing sharply in 2012 and 2013.  Despite the slowdown, sales are now significantly above pre-recession levels.  The recovery has been strongest in electric product lines where foreign-sourced manufacturers dominate market sales.  For domestic manufacturers, shipment gains have been sharpest for pneumatic, percussion tools, pneumatic impact wrenches, and hydraulic tools.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Power Tools.  This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment.  Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.

The contents below shows the significant data and information included in this Catalina First Look.  Look it over, place your order at our website, call or email, and receive your Catalina First Look promptly.  You will find it a valuable planning tool.
