In addition, the rising consumer spending power or capacity on interior designing with the help of various types of wood and wood-based products and huge demand for the product from the hospitality sector for the installation of several types of hardwoods like maple, teak, and oak, is pushing the market growth forward.

For instance, in October 2022, Husqvarna announced the expansion of its product portfolio offering by launching two new 40cc petrol chainsaws specially designed for tree care professionals and arborists. The new models feature a simplified starting technology that allows the engine to start with comparatively less effort than previous generations.

Moreover, there have been significant advancements in technology like anti-vibration technology which helps reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the operator's hands and arms, which can further help reduce fatigue and make the tool more comfortable to use over long periods.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the chainsaw market. The rapid spread of the deadly coronavirus across the globe has hampered the demand and supply of the market across both developed and developing regions due to the instability of supply chains, continuous volatility in raw material supply, lack of manpower in manufacturing facilities, and significant decline in the demand for end-use customers during the pandemic.

The gas-powered segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The gas-powered segment garnered a significant revenue share in 2022. The growth of the segment market can be highly attributed to a high preference for these types of chainsaws for large tree-cutting purposes because of their high-power output and faster cutting speed compared to other chainsaws available in the market. In addition, these chainsaws are typically more portable and mobile than their electric counterparts, as they don't require any kind of electrical outlet or cord to operate and also can be more cost-effective in the long run, especially for users who frequently use their chainsaw or require high performance for their work.

The electric and battery-powered segment is projected to exhibit the fastest growth rate during the forecast period, on account of the wide range of benefits of the product, as they are generally lighter and easier to handle than gas-powered ones, which makes them more convenient for homeowners and DIY enthusiasts and have also become more powerful and have longer battery life, due to which it has gained significant traction among professional users as well. Additionally, the rising awareness regarding the growing noise pollution levels and emissions across the globe has resulted in the higher popularity of electric-powered chainsaws, further influencing the segment market growth over the coming years.

The residential construction segment is expected to grow most over the projected period.

The residential construction segment is projected to grow over the anticipated period, which is highly attributable to the rapidly increasing popularity of DIY projects around the world in recent years, with many homeowners undertaking their own projects instead of hiring professionals, which has created a huge demand for chainsaws as homeowners look for improved tools to complete their projects. The surge in the number of homeowners undertaking home renovation projects, which involve cutting and shaping wood, is also likely to impact the market growth significantly.

The commercial and industrial construction segment held a significant market share in terms of revenue in 2022, which can be highly attributable to the widespread use of the product in the construction of buildings and infrastructure, including cutting and trimming wood for framing, roofing, and siding along with the ongoing demand for new chainsaws, as contractors seek newer and more advanced models that can improve productivity and efficiency on the job site while maintaining the safety of workers.
