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, 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, and 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 Asia-Pacific 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.
