$183.2 Billion Global Elevator and Escalator Markets to 2026


DUBLIN, March 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Elevator and Escalator Market by Type (Elevators, Escalators, Moving Walks), Service (New Installation, Maintenance & Repair, Modernization), Elevator Technology (Traction, Machine Room-Less, Hydraulic), Usage Industry final and region – Forecast until 2026″ report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The global elevators and escalators market is expected to grow from USD 134.4 billion in 2021 for USD 183.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR by 6.4% from 2021 to 2026.

The increasing migration of a large population base from rural areas to cities has consequently increased the need for infrastructure development, such as the construction of high-rise buildings, to meet accommodation needs.

Urban cities are now turning into megacities, with exponentially growing populations. Tokyo, Mexico City, Seoul, Lagosare some of the new megacities that are building skyscrapers, futuristic transport hubs and much more infrastructure to cater to the growing population.

Efficient vertical mobility is an important element of high-rise buildings. Hence, rapid urbanization and increasing construction of high-rise buildings is expected to increase the deployment of elevators and escalators, which would be one of the market growth factors over the forecast period.

In terms of value, the machine room-less traction elevator segment dominated elevators and escalators in 2020

The machine roomless traction elevator, by elevator technology, accounted for the largest market share in the elevator and escalator market. Machine roomless elevator technology is a relatively new technology and is the result of technological advancements.

This technology has resulted in a significant reduction in the size of electric motors used with traction equipment. This equipment has newly designed permanent magnet motors (PMM). Thanks to this technology, there is no need for a machine room above the shaft.

This design is adopted by buildings around the world and is becoming standard elevator technology. Machine roomless elevators were first introduced to the US market by KONE. As machine-roomless elevators gain wide acceptance, manufacturers are introducing new products equipped with the technology in varying sizes and speeds.

In terms of value and volume, elevators are expected to be the fastest growing segment from 2021 to 2026, for elevators and escalators

Elevators can be described as any platform, open or closed, useful for transporting people or goods to different floors of a building. Several safety standards must be met by lift manufacturers. For example, in the United States, an elevator manufacturer must meet safety standards set by the American National Standards Institute and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The elevator market is dominated by players such as KONE Corporation (Finland), United Technologies (USA), Schindler (Switzerland), Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan), ThyssenKrupp AG (Germany), FUJITEC (Japan), Hitachi Ltd. (Japan), Hyundai Elevator Co. Ltd. (Republic of Korea/South Korea), Toshiba Corporation (Japan) and Electra Ltd. (Israel). The elevator segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR owing to the development of new residential and commercial projects globally.

In terms of value, the APAC elevators and escalators market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

In terms of value and volume, the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. Rising construction spending, improving living standards and rapid urbanization are the major drivers for the region .

Asia Pacific countries are taking aggressive initiatives to modernize commercial and institutional buildings. Many countries in the region have taken steps to implement low-carbon and IoT-based smart cities in recent years, providing opportunities for the growth of the elevators and escalators market.

Competitive landscape

The market includes large manufacturers, such as the Schindler Group (Switzerland), Otis Elevator (USA), Thyssenkrupp AG (Germany), KONE Corporation (Finland) and Hitachi Ltd. (Japan), among others.
