Global Elevator Market To Grow At A CAGR Of 7% During The Forecast Period

29-Jun-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global elevator market was worth around $128 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around $140 billion by 2028 at a CAGR rate of 7% over the forecast period.

The elevator consists of building carrier devices for objects or people to transport them from one point to another in a vertical direction. It is one of the most important industries in the construction sector. From the time construction began in the upward direction, elevators have been in existence. The shape and mechanism of the elevators may not have been the same through the years but the idea of assisting the movement of objects has remained constant.

The global elevator market has undergone a tremendous change which is directly proportional to the technological advancements and innovations in the elevator industry. Earlier elevators were more manual and needed human intervention for proper operation however as of current time, they run with the help of electric motors that come with built-in smart functions like automatic closure & opening of the doors, sending out alerts in case of malfunction, voice notes to improve the user experience, to name a few.

The global elevator market growth was hampered during 2020 because of the onset of Covid-19. The decrease was majorly attributed to the lesser use of elevators in residential and commercial buildings because of virus infection threats from public places. Since the manufacturing units were closed and the supply chain was disrupted, the production of elevators halted in the initial phase. However, the global market is showing steady signs of growth in the coming years.

With the growing urbanization and modernization of cities, there has been an exponential rise in the construction of commercial as well as residential high-rise buildings where high-functioning elevators are an absolute necessity. In fact, even in low-rise buildings, elevator installation is a common aspect because of the efficient functionalities of elevator systems. There is also a significant rise in the infrastructural development of many countries with heavy investments made by the government as well as private institutes towards building state-of-the-art architectural facilities. These reasons are expected to aid the global elevator market growth during the projection period. This is also coupled with the growing need for maintenance of older sites and upgrading them in order to prevent their early deterioration which assists in maintaining the heritage value of the sites. The global market growth can also be attributed to the rising number of healthcare facilities that are one of the largest revenue contributors in the elevator industry.

The government regulations & policies controlling lifts and incidences of accidents involving elevators may hamper the global market growth. Although the introduction of smart elevators as a part of modernization and technological advancement provides a lucrative opportunity for market expansion, strict laws governing the safety standard of elevators pose a challenge for the global market.
