Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Governments Initiatives to Save Energy Will Favor Growth

Out of the total energy present in a building, elevators consume around 2% to 7%. Hence, manufacturers are striving persistently to develop energy efficient elevators that would be sustainable. To do so, they are equipping the new elevators with state-of-the-art controls and hardware. Nowadays, elevators are very compact owing to the lack of space. Apart from that, the governments of numerous countries are taking initiatives to save energy and are providing funds to develop energy efficient products.

In 2019, the Swiss government, for instance, implemented modern technologies to refurbish the conventional elevators with Schindler as its technology partner. This reduced the energy consumption by 50%. However, the rising number of accidents that take place during the maintenance operations may hinder the escalator and elevator market growth during the forthcoming years.


Rapid Urbanization to Propel the New Equipment Segment

In terms of business, the market is categorized into modernization, maintenance, and new equipment. Out of these, the maintenance segment procured 32.7% in terms of escalators and elevators market share in 2018. This growth is attributable to the rising number of maintenance works that are taking place globally to make the old equipment smooth. The new equipment segment is likely to dominate the market in the coming years backed by the increasing construction activities, changing demographics, and rapid urbanization. Manufacturers, nowadays, are trying to develop innovative technologies to provide value-added services.
