Global Chainsaw Safety Equipment Market 2017-2021
About Chainsaw Safety Equipment
A chainsaw is a mechanical power-driven cutting portable tool, which aids lumberjacks in the felling of trees; the sharp and quick operation of a chainsaw reduces the effort and time taken by the lumberjack to complete the task. As this tool requires manpower for press-in and press-off during operations, it exposes chainsaw operators to several dangerous hazards, such as arm sprains and cuts. To safeguard the chainsaw operator from such hazards, a set of protective equipment known as chainsaw safety equipment need to be used. Chainsaw safety equipment involves protective helmets, visors, gloves, suspenders, rope clamps, body harnesses, respiratory masks, special trousers, and other wearables.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global chainsaw safety equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 3.59% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Chainsaw Safety Equipment Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global chainsaw safety equipment market: Husqvarna, Oregon, PFANNER, and STIHL.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ansell, Beeswift, COFRA, E+LVEX, Globus, Moldex, SA+TRA, Sioen, and Uvex.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing participation of women lumberjacks. Forestry is generally considered as a male-dominated field as it deals with a substantial amount of physical labor, such as cutting and lifting heavy logs. However, women are participating in forestry areas, such as community forestry, wildlife management, forest mapping, and surveying.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is diversification of chainsaw applications. The chainsaw, in today's scenario, is not considered as a tool, which is limited to loggers and lumberjacks only. It has diversified applications, such as in lawn maintenance, clean-ups, and in garages. Chainsaw sales volumes have increased dramatically due to its applications in residential areas. In the US, there are nearly 100 million households, and people are buying electric chainsaws rather than gas chainsaws due to their non-emission ability for maintaining their homes. The demand for chainsaws will continue to increase as more homeowners are using them for cleaning and maintaining lawns.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high maintenance cost for chainsaws. The efficient functioning of chainsaws requires the period checking and maintenance of the small and moving components of these tools as well as taking precautionary measures at regular intervals. Chainsaw maintenance requires specific training so that the parts are not damaged. For instance, chainsaws come with the moving chain on the bar, and the bar and chain need to be periodically examined before use. Operators need to check whether the chains are tensioned properly, and must sharpen the chain blades if required. The proper sharpening of the chain blades requires the respective filing tools with specific guidance and at proper angles; if the wrong method of filing is used, it might harm the chain blade's edges and their sharpness.
