The United States is home to leading automotive companies such as General Motors, Ford, and Tesla, which are actively expanding their operations. Tesla, in particular, enjoys high demand for its automobiles. In 2020, the U.S. reported the production of over 8.5 million vehicles, a decrease of more than 18% compared to 2019. The revenue generated by motor vehicle and motor parts dealers in 2020 was nearly USD 1.3 trillion. These figures highlight the importance of the automotive industry to the United States and its role in supporting the growth of the U.S. power tool accessories market. Brands like DEWALT offer a dedicated range of accessories tailored for the automotive industry.
Prefab houses, which are residences and commercial buildings constructed off-site in pre-made components and then assembled on-site, have gained popularity. This trend, prevalent in industrialized regions like North America, particularly the United States, has increased the demand for power tools and accessories in the construction sector.
Corded power tools have been dominant and have revolutionized the power tool industry, leading to the expansion of battery-operated product lines. This trend has a positive impact on the U.S. power tool accessories market. The development of Li-ion batteries has been a significant driver for the cordless power tool market. Advancements in battery technology have allowed for greater backup capacity, meeting the demand for long-lasting battery life. Li-ion batteries have shown improved effectiveness, performance, energy density, charging speed, stability, cyclability, and safety. Despite being more expensive to replace, they are widely used in electronic communication devices and electric vehicles, particularly in the United States.
In March 2018, the U.S. government imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China, with rates at 25% and 10% respectively. These tariffs had a significant impact on various industries that relied on cheaper imports from China for their steel and aluminum requirements. The increased costs were ultimately passed on to end customers, resulting in higher prices. Trade tensions between the two countries have since escalated, affecting major end-users across industries.
These tariffs and ongoing trade issues between the U.S. and China have negatively affected industries that rely on steel and aluminum. Consequently, there has been a cost escalation within the steel and aluminum sectors, posing challenges for market players looking to scale up their operations. The U.S. power tool accessories market will continue to be influenced by these trade and economic variables during the forecast period, potentially facing difficulties in terms of value and volume.

The U.S. power tool accessories market is primarily dominated by offline distribution channels, accounting for a revenue share of 66.10% in 2022. This channel is expected to continue growing significantly in the forecast period as customers prefer to understand the functionalities and uses of the products before making a purchase decision. Additionally, due to the specific usage and purpose of power tool accessories, customers prefer offline channels to minimize the risk of receiving incompatible products.
The online distribution channel accounted for USD 5.2 billion in revenue in 2022 and is also a significant platform for selling power tool accessories. Many offline distributors are incorporating e-commerce solutions and enterprise resource planning systems to move their sales process online.
Drill bits, with a revenue of USD 502.41 million in 2022, dominate the power tool accessories market in the U.S. Some of the best-selling drill bits include titanium-coated DeWalt drill bits, Drill Hog, Irwin Tools, Drill America, and Bosch. As impact drills are commonly used for household applications, vendors should offer bits suitable for all end-use applications and maximize their presence in both retail and online platforms to meet the increasing demand.
Circular saw blades are the second-dominant segment in the U.S. power tool accessories market. These tools are mainly used for precision cutting in wood and metal works. They are also popular for DIY activities, as vendors offer user-friendly cutting tools for home improvement and woodworking. Features such as expansion slots, gullets, number of teeth, size, laser cut features, price, coating, warranty, and design can greatly influence customer preferences in this segment.
The industrial end-user segment accounted for 74.20% of the U.S. power tool accessories market revenue in 2022. Cordless power tools are widely used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, energy, construction, and shipbuilding. The energy sector, driven by the promotion of sustainable energy, is expected to be a major revenue generator. The construction industry also contributed significant revenue due to rapid infrastructural developments across the country.
In the industrial end-user segment, the U.S. aerospace power tool accessories market is projected to have the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.37% during the forecast period. Power tools such as fasteners, drillers, grinders, routers, and demolition tools are commonly used in this industry. The replacement of accessories like bits, chisels, and fasteners is frequent due to their extensive use. Assembly operations like wing, tail, engine, and final assembly will offer further opportunities for tool and accessory utilization. Vendors like Atlas Copco provide a range of cordless and pneumatic tools, expanding the scope of accessory applications.
The growth of the U.S. power tool accessories market in the South region can be attributed to several factors. The region houses many manufacturing centers for power tools and accessories, making production and distribution more convenient.
