Dublin, Sept. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Elevator & Escalator Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2017-2027 Segmented By Type, By Service, By End User Industry, By Elevator Technology, By Elevator Door Type, By Region" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Elevator & Escalator Market was valued at USD82473.94 million in 2021 and is anticipated to project a steady growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 4.91% owing to rapidly increasing development in high-rise buildings and ever-growing cash inflow in real estate businesses.

An elevator is a machine positioned in buildings to transport, carry, lift, and move people and goods from one floor to another. The elevator can be used in many locations, including residential complexes, commercial buildings, malls, hospitals, and others, to move people or goods from one floor to another. Elevators are also used in factories and industrial plants to transfer goods, machinery, and finished products between two or more different floors.

An escalator is usually a set of moving stairs, power-driven and arranged like a nonstop belt of stairs that transports people between the floors of a building while going from one floor to another constantly.

Increasing Cash Inflows in Real-Estate Sector is Driving Market Growth

Expansion in the real-estate sector is a primary force propelling the Global Elevator & Escalator Market. Huge cash inflow, mostly in the business sector, is driving the market's growth as many established and emerging nations are expanding in the real estate sector, which is expected to grow the Global Elevator & Escalator Market in the forecast period.

Growing Business of Construction Industry is Propelling the Market Growth

The global construction businesses are experiencing a massive demand for escalators and elevators worldwide. The growing investment in residential and commercial projects as well as in the infrastructure sector is rapidly increasing at a higher rate and is positively influencing the construction sector globally.

As of 2020, nearly 500 high-rise buildings were proposed in the US, whereas around 200 high-rise buildings were proposed in the UK and about 100 in Germany. A similar trend is being witnessed across the globe, which is expected to drive the Global Elevator & Escalator Market during the forecast period.

Visionary Futuristic Ideas in Building & Infrastructure Industry

For instance, In Europe, the elevator and escalator industry is one of the most innovative segments in the mechanical and construction business.

In addition to the establishment of advanced government norms many manufacturers have introduced many new futuristic ideas to the market, many of which are ground-breaking in their respective fields which often results in considerable cost savings for the client. These include the electrically driven, machine-roomless elevator and, more recently, the cableless elevator, which travels vertically and horizontally at high speed inside the structure.

The innovation-rich history of the elevator and escalator industry is expected to assist its companies in overcoming future challenges, such as those resulting from demographic shifts and technological advancement. Considering the challenges posed by cloud-based solutions and IoT (Internet of Things) applications in buildings.

Modernization of Market and Usage of UltraRope Technology

The ultra-light UltraRope technology offers unmatched eco-efficiency, reliability, and durability in elevators while considerably enhancing their performance. It addresses the challenges of traditional steel ropes, including excessive energy consumption, rope stretch, enormous moving masses, and building sway-related downtime. UltraRope permits the elevator to travel at the height of about 1,000 meters.

Like UltraRope modern technology can greatly recover the reliability of operations by replacing mechanical transfers. By replacing motor-generator-based drive systems with Variable-Voltage, Variable-Frequency (VVVF) drives, which provide almost smooth acceleration and deceleration, the ride quality may be increased. This causes a positive influence in the Global Elevator & Escalator Market.
