Different power tools are developed for efficient and easy movement of goods. These power tools are available with various capabilities and features to increase the operational convenience. Also, they are available with increased usability, accurate controls, and fool-proof technology to eliminate the risks in mishandling high-speed power tools, which increases the cost of power tools. The high cost of consumables coupled with high maintenance costs causes several small-scale industries to avoid investing in efficient and effective power tools. In addition, high-quality and energy-efficient power tools are expensive, which small-scale industries and the residential sector cannot afford. The decline in demand for power tools is expected to hinder the growth of the DIY power tools market.
