The recent COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in declining market growth. However, several factors are expected to drive the elevator and escalator market during the forecast period.

The market is projected to witness high growth because of the growing end-use industries apart from residential and commercial and the rising demand from emerging countries such as China and India. The residential segment is to have the largest market share followed by the commercial industry becoming the next end-use industry to play a key role in changing the elevators & escalators industry landscape and grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The market is to grow with an anticipated CAGR of over 6% through the forecasted period.

By type, the elevator segment leads the market at a share of 58.26% in 2020. The growing geriatric population is another factor boosting its installation. The booming construction sector resulting in rapid demand for elevators in high-rise and mid-rise buildings is further pushing the market growth. Similarly, the moving walkway segment is to grow with an anticipated CAGR of 6.70%, while the escalator segment is expected to show a decline in the market.

The residential industry, for a long time, has been the major contributor to the rising demand for elevators & escalators, accounted for a value of USD 31.30 Billion in the year 2015. However, in recent times, it has been closely competing with the commercial industry.

The commercial end user segment is expected to show a marginal decline and reach USD 28.81% in the year 2020. The increasing focus of government towards high rise infrastructures coupled with the increasing need for rapid transit is expected to fuel the growth. Tourism is another sector, which encourages the demand for elevators and escalators in places of importance for the ease and convenience of the tourists visiting the respective countries.

The life cycle of the escalators and elevators starts with the new equipment installation, which in 2020 accounted for a value of USD 33.14 Billion.

The increasing population and economic development are other factors that further drive the growth of this region. The regions of Latin America and Middle East & Africa together contributed to less than 15% of the market in 2020.

Factors such as stringent regulations in the elevators & escalators industry are some of the serious restraints for the growth of the market.
