Global Tool Handles Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A tool handle is a part of a tool that is held in the hand while the tool is being used. It provides grip and leverage. Tool handles are often made of wood, plastic, or metal.


Plastic is a durable, versatile, lightweight material that can be molded into various shapes and colors. It has been used in the manufacturing of products ranging from toothbrushes to automobiles. The most commonly used plastics are polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), high impact Polystyrene (PS) and low-density Polyethylene (LDPE).


Rubber is a versatile material that can be molded, extruded or cut to produce a wide range of products. It has the ability to withstand high temperatures and provide excellent grip. Rubber also provides resistance against water, oil and chemicals which makes it suitable for tool handles market as well. The major application areas of rubber include tires, footwear, automotive components (hoses & cables), mats & flooring and medical devices among others.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes screwdrivers, knives, files and other tools. The global tool handles market for other tools is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for various types of hand tools from construction and automotive industries.

Hammer was the largest revenue-generating segment in 2017 due to high product demand in this industry. Increasing use of metal hammer with rubber handle provides better grip while using it which results in higher product demand across various applications such as home improvement and construction industries.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030. The region has been witnessing strong economic growth over the past few years on account of increasing industrial output and rising foreign investments in manufacturing facilities and distribution centers. Rapid urbanization, growing population, improving standards of living, and expanding middle class are some major factors driving product demand in this region.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe which accounted for 24% share in 2017 owing to high product adoption across various application segments including hand tools such as wrenches, pliers & tongs among others driven by rapidly developing construction industry especially residential sector coupled with automotive production levels particularly Germany’s Volkswagen Group; upsurge at Daimler AG; Mercedes Benz Cars SAAB A/GmbH & Co.; Stuttgart plant expansion project; Audi A4 Sedan Quattro Plant Expansion Project etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for hand tools in the automotive and construction industries
  • Growing popularity of DIY projects and home improvement initiatives
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms that offer a wide selection of tool handles at competitive prices
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of ergonomic tool handles for reducing fatigue and improving productivity
  • Technological advancements that result in the development of new and innovative tool handle designs
