The Covid-19 pandemic hampered the growth of market to major extent which has created a major challenges for the market growth. Also, during COVID pandemic, the supply chain got majorly disrupted which adversely affected the major industries like construction, manufacturing etc. and created a great challenge for the market for the air hammer market to grow further. However, recently, as the lockdown has been lifted up in almost every part of the globe and regulatory bodies across the world are actively focusing upon getting their economies back to track, it is expected that the market would grow further in coming years. 


The report provides in-depth analysis of global Air Hammer market, market size, and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the forecast period of 2022-2028, considering 2021 as the base year. The demand for air hammer is increasing as there has been growth in the manufacturing sector, which has the great utility of air hammer and the market is expected to witness the growth at a specific CAGR from 2022-2028.



The global Air Hammer market comprises of different market segment like function, distribution channel, speed, type, application and geography.


By function, the Air Hammer market includes key segments 

  • Semi-Automatic
  • Fully Automatic

Fully automatic air hammer function is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The key reason which is driving the market for fully automated air hammer is the less time consumption required for hammering, also skilled labour is not required to use it and hence it easy to operate. Moreover, it can be transported easily from one place to another since dismantling and assembling is simple, thus they are highly popular in the market. 


The Air Hammer market on the basis of distribution channel is consisting of

  • Direct Sales
  • Indirect Sales

Indirect sales hold the major share in the market, since this channel include brick and mortar stores for buying pneumatic tools or heavy machineries. Also, customers usually prefer to buy from a brick-and-mortar store as consumers have specific preferences in these tools like air pressure, piston stroke, stoke speed and air inlet which is driving the market. On the another hand, as there is rise in internet use globally, it provides a great option for the consumer to buy heavy machinery equipment’s through the internet and customers are becoming more inclined to purchase their machinery and equipment’s online helping in the growth of direct sales segment. 


The Air Hammer market on the basis of speed includes  

  • Lower BPM
  • Higher BPM

Lower BPM is expected to find increasing demand in the market over the forecast period. Since, a lower BPM air hammer is used for cutting heavy exhaust work, riveting, bushing driving and bolt shearing. It is basically used for day-to-day operation and are used in garages and repair shops for maintenance of vehicles and machines, which is driving the market for lower BPM. Also, use of higher BPM in construction industry to make holes in concrete to electrical panel is driving the market for higher BPM segment. 


The global Air Hammer market on the basis of type is studied for the following segments

  • Rotary Air Hammer 
  • Forging Air Hammer 
  • Chipping Air Hammer

For air hammer market on the basis of type, chipping air hammer type is holding the lion’s share, since chipping hammer is a light, well-balanced tool ideal for surface dressing. Moreover, these are the top choice for light demolition work - including concrete and masonry removal –which requires a hard-hitting, well balanced tool. Pneumatic chipping hammers contain an air-operated piston that delivers successive blows to a chisel or forming tool at the end of the hammer and creating the demand for chipping air hammer. Apart from that, forging air hammer also hold significant share in the market.
