Jackhammer Market Outlook: 2026

The global jackhammer market size was valued at $202.8 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $361.2 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2019 to 2026. The jack hammer is a percussive rock-drilling equipment, used to demolish or break the pavement, rock, and concrete. It includes piston rod, which moves up and down to push drill rod. There are three types of jack hammers-pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic.

There is an increase in adoption of jack hammers owing to its advantages such as durability, quiet operation, outstanding operator comfort, and low maintenance. Moreover, increase in construction of roads, tunnels, and railway tracks drives the jackhammer market growth. In addition, the increased demand for improving the transportation has also been noticed globally. Therefore, there is an increase in demand for jack hammers in construction industries. Further, increase in demand for metal and mineral commodities globally is the major factor that boosts the growth of the mining and quarry industries. This in turn fuels the need for jack hammers.

However, rise in prices of raw materials and government regulations for mining operations hamper the market growth. For instance, governments of many countries, such as China, the U.S., and others, have implemented stringent regulations and tariffs for mining operations. These regulations and laws have a great impact on the mining industries. For instance, in 2017, Tanzania has legislated tough laws for mining industries by increasing the royalties tax for mining projects. Factors such as delay in issuing of mining permit by government authorities hinder the process of starting a new mining project. Furthermore, the technical advancements in electrical jackhammers offers lucrative growth opportunities for the jackhammer market players during the forecasting period.
