Why is the Popularity of Oscillating Tools Increasing Rapidly?

“Growing Adoption of Oscillating Tool in Residential and DIY Projects”

Activities such as gardening, carpentry, and plumbing are growing as fewer people choose to outsource these tasks due to the high cost of labor. Additionally, individuals have become more involved in the decision-making process for home decor, which has facilitated the sales of related goods, notably oscillating tools.

The availability of integrated sales channels such as e-Commerce, hypermarkets, and specialized shops, together with changes in lifestyles, is enabling consumers to purchase oscillating tools for their day-to-day décor and household applications.

“Cordless or Corded Oscillating Tools: Consumer Preference?”

New lithium batteries are being used in battery-operated cordless oscillating tools to increase their power and life, which are of course powerful portable hand tools. However, cordless tool batteries need to be replaced after some years of use since they stop holding a charge. The cost of battery replacement can be high.

Oscillating tools that are cordless are often utilized in situations where connecting an extension cord is not problematic. In general, corded oscillating multi-tools are more powerful and never lose power as long as they are plugged in. When using the tool with access to an electrical outlet, a corded variant is the most practical.

All in all, depending on the end-use application, the choice of the oscillating tool varies. While commercial end users are more inclined towards corded tools, residential and DIY purpose tool applications are carried out more using cordless oscillating tools.

“Technological Developments by Oscillating Tool Manufactures”

Developments taking place in oscillating tools are expected to push market growth. Companies such as Black & Decker, Colex, Desoutter Industrial Tools, DEWALT, FEIN, Festool, Porter-Cable, Prime Supply Inc, and Robert Bosch are implementing newer technologies, ensuring better quality and low-cost products.

By allowing end users to operate the tool easily with all the jobs done with the easy switch of attachments, oscillating power tools have filled the gap between heavy power tools. Overall, demand for oscillating tools is expected to grow 1.6X over the decade.
