Highest Growing Market

North America

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Chainsaw Market is accounted for $3.86 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $5.82 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Chainsaws are powerful cutting implements that quickly cut through materials like wood because they have numerous chains that act like saw blades. Due to the usability of chainsaws, the market is well-established in both developed and developing countries. Numerous people use chainsaws, including construction workers, homeowners, fire-fighters, and woodcutters. It is frequently used in the production of furniture, the creation of pulp, the renovation of infrastructure, and numerous construction projects in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.

According to NAHB analysis of 2021 Census Bureau 2021, 92% of new homes were wood-framed, another 7% were concrete-framed, and less than half a percent were steel-framed.

Market Dynamics:


Enhanced construction activity

Construction is an industry that is expanding rapidly on a global scale. The majority of global projects have been placed on hold as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, but overall, the long-term forecast for the construction sector remains positive, and it is predicted to grow quicker than the world economy over the forecast period. Large amounts of wood are used in the construction industry for building and as scaffolding for various tasks during the construction process. In the construction industry, chain saws are often used to quickly and easily shape wood logs, plywood, and other wooden objects into a variety of shapes.


Prohibition on tree cutting

The global economy and human society are intimately linked to forests. Around 1 billion people globally depend on forests for their livelihood, according to the World Research Institute. It is a well-known fact that the forest ecosystem contributes significantly to maintaining the world's climate, as well as providing essential resources like food, water, and medicinal plants. Around 20 percent of the world's forest cover has been degraded, and 30 percent has been destroyed owing to widespread deforestation. Furthermore, the World Wildlife Fund reports that during the past 50 years, trade in forest products has significantly increased, particularly in the areas of pulpwood, wood-based panels, sawn timber, and boards, among other things. All of these elements, along with the increase in global temperatures, are pressuring nations to stop the rampant deforestation in order to match their national objectives with the Paris Climate Treaty.


Implementation of labour safety regulations

Compact and lightweight product variations have emerged as a result of the strict government labour safety rules that have been implemented to prevent accidents and injuries. Additionally, the market will be further stimulated by consumers' shifting preferences away from conventional gasoline-powered chainsaws and towards environmentally friendly alternatives like battery- and electric-powered chainsaws.


High raw material cost and stringent regulations

High raw material costs, as well as expanding regulations and bans, will function as market barriers for the development of chainsaws during the anticipated period. Moreover, during the extrapolated period, a limitation that will further impede the chainsaw market's growth will be a lack of product awareness.

Covid-19 Impact:

Most of the major markets around the world have been impacted by the COVID-19 explosion. COVID-19 has a negative impact on the target market. The largest chainsaw market is in North America, but because of lockouts and the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S., supply and demand for chainsaws have declined. Due to COVID-19, the target industry's expansion in both established and emerging economies has been hampered by the instability of the supply chain, the irregular availability of raw materials, a lack of skilled labour at the manufacturing facility, and weak demand from end users.

The fuel operated segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Due to their high power output, fuel-operated chainsaws are anticipated to hold the largest share of the market during the projection period. The most popular chainsaws for cutting huge trees are those which operate on fuel. Furthermore, fuels like petrol, gas, etc. are used to power these chainsaws. Chainsaws that are fueled by fuel have certain benefits over those that are powered by electricity, such as the capacity to cut enormous trees and branches and the great power and cutting speed they provide. However, factors like the rising global population and the declining of petrol prices are driving up demand for fuel-powered chainsaws globally.

The commercial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Due to the growing use of wood in commercial building applications, such as flooring and wall and roof designs, which consequently is driving the segment's growth, the commercial segment is anticipated to have profitable growth over the extrapolated period. Additionally, chainsaws that operate on fuel are frequently employed in company environments. However, lower emissions, improved durability due to better heat treatment before assembly at the factory, and increased efficiency brought on by design advancements that reduce friction between moving parts within the engine crankcase during operation are all important characteristics of contemporary chainsaws.

Region with largest share:

Due to the companies' increased expansion and product launches in the North American region as a result of the region's increasing demand, North America held the largest share of the market in 2021 and is predicted to command the market over the projection period. Furthermore, 90% of homes in North America are constructed of wood, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Because wood is considered to be very lightweight, North Americans tend to opt for wood in their homes. It is one of the strongest materials available, even stronger than steel. One of the best building materials for supporting weight is wood; hence, some building designs can be constructed with less support.

Region with highest CAGR:

Due to the enormous number of vendors or major companies operating chainsaw manufacturing facilities in the region, North America is predicted to have lucrative growth throughout the projected period. Amongst the North American nations, the United States experienced the most rapid growth, primarily as a result of the country's expanding furniture and construction sectors, which have a growing need for chainsaws. Additionally, green building guidelines have been established in North America, which require the production of engineered wood products and other certified wood products associated with low emission rates. Therefore, the usage of green building techniques by construction firms to develop buildings with lower energy costs is increasing.
