As the construction industry heads back to work following the latest government advice, the elevator and escalator market is expected to expand owing to the biggest projects across the region. The leading manufacturers of moving walkways are currently implementing technologically advanced production processes to increase production efficacy and optimize product offerings. In the overall region, the residential end-user segment accounted for the largest market share in Europe. Smart and innovative building solutions are taking the forefront in the regional market as the country looks to innovatively accommodate its population. The elevator and escalator market has been largely characterized by contracting growth in the construction sector owing to a high degree of political and economic instability due to Brexit in the UK. It is expected to proliferate the market's growth soon and bring in new horizons for the potential industrialists and investors in the market to witness promising future business growth in the coming years. The industrial and infrastructural end-users of the elevator and escalator are expected to contribute over a share of 25% by the end of the forecasted period. Growth would be aided primarily by government regulation mandating the use of elevators to cater to the needs of the ageing population. With the government mandating the use of cargo elevators to cater to medical emergencies, the cargo elevator segment is likely to witness a significant increase in its revenue share. Construction markets in developed nations such as Germany, the United Kingdom, and France are more mature. As a result, demand for new elevators would be restricted in these nations, but demand for maintenance, repair, and after-sales service would be considerable.
