Report Overview

The global nail guns market size was valued at USD 2.99 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.6% from 2020 to 2028. Increasing demand for nail guns in the building renovation & construction and carpentry industries due to their accuracy, ability to speed up the work, and safety features will drive the market growth. Furthermore, rapid urbanization in developing economies, such as China and India, as a result of the support of national governments for infrastructure development, has led to a rise in residential and commercial construction activities, which is expected to augment the product demand. Over the past few years, manufacturing companies have constantly been developing advanced products to cater to the growing and changing consumer requirements.

The U.S. nail guns market size, by product, 2017 - 2028 (USD Million)

Nail guns help optimize the construction work by improving the speed of the overall process. Growing demand for effective and convenient tools in the construction industry, to reduce overall lead time and improve effectiveness, is expected to boost the market growth. Rising product demand from the household end-use segment is also estimated to support market growth. Easy availability of the product through retail and e-commerce channels is expected to remain a favorable factor from consumers’ standpoint.

Construction workers can use a nail gun to quickly and conveniently install nails as these tools are capable of driving a large number of nails consistently and accurately on a workpiece. Designed to produce less impact on work material, nail guns require low maintenance and are easy to operate. The economic slowdown during the pandemic slightly affected the market growth.

As most of the countries worldwide faced complete lockdown and like other industries, the construction industry also witnessed a slowdown in economic growth during the pandemic. However, it is expected that as things get normalized post-2021, the construction industry is expected to pace up its operations and thus, in turn, open new growth opportunities for the market.

Product Insights

The framing products segment accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 32% in 2020. These products are considered one of the essential tools for heavy construction jobs. Therefore, framing products remained the most preferred tools by contractors due to their incredible power and ability to continuously shoot large nails, which results in time-saving and improved safety, accuracy, and durability. Siding product forms are projected to be the fastest-growing segment from 2021 to 2028. Used for wood, vinyl, and aluminum; siding products drive the nails smoothly in the material and use the trigger lock system to avoid accidents.

End-user Insights

The commercial end-user segment held the highest revenue share of more than 62% in 2020 and will expand further at a steady CAGR from 2021 to 2028. Growing demand for nail guns from the commercial construction and woodworking sectors due to their accuracy, ability to speed up the work, and safety features will drive the segment growth. For heavy-duty work, contractors prefer to use nail guns instead of hammers due to their capability to drive a large number of nails consistently and accurately on the workpiece.

Moreover, they are designed to produce less impact on work material and require minimum maintenance and are easy to operate. The household sector is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2018. In the household sector, cordless nail guns are very popular as they are easy to operate, portable, and use trigger lock systems. Thus, rising demand from the household sectors will drive the segment growth in the years to come.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline distribution channel was the largest segment in 2020 and accounted for more than 65% of the global revenue share. The segment includes convenience stores, specialty stores, and supermarkets. Manufacturing companies make extensive use of the retail environment to reach their customers through advertising and promotion activities. In addition, most nail gun retailers are disproportionately located in more heavily populated areas with a more significant number of middle-class population groups.

The online channel is expected to register the fastest growth rate during forecast years. Over the past few years, the sales of nail guns have been increased through online shopping portals, company websites, and third-party delivery service applications as these channels offer other benefits along with products, such as convenience and discounts on product prices.

Power Type Insights

The pneumatic power type device segment accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 47% in 2020. These power type variants dominated the global market owing to their exceptional features, such as the easy adoption of air by nail gun from a compressor. High-pressure air compressors are used to drill the nails by pneumatic variants. Pressure and volume should be equal to or higher than nailers’ requirement on compressors ratings.

Pneumatic nailer is considered powerful in handling heavy and dusky tasks; the compressor’s air hose limits your mobility. These tools are used for drilling or inserting long nails into heavy materials for siding, roofing, framing, and flooring purposes. Such products are available in many designs, shapes, and sizes for different jobs, including more fine finishing details. The electric power type segment accounted for the second-highest revenue share in 2020. Among electric nail guns, especially cordless nail guns drive the segment growth due to their low weight, fastener-length capacity portability, and enhanced battery life.

Regional Insights

North America was the largest regional market in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of over 36%. The significant demand for advanced tools from a large number of manufacturing units and commercial buildings along with the presence of well-established companies in the U.S. and Canada is expected to drive the regional market over the coming years.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market registering a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2028. China and India are the key contributors to the APAC market growth due to rapid industrialization and urbanization in these countries on a domestic level.
