These facilities range from residential complexes to large industrial structures. In addition to that, elevator and escalator manufacturers are putting more effort into developing cutting-edge solutions that save time and energy. They are primarily focused on launching an advanced range of elevators that can be used in a variety of end-use categories such as hospitals, offices, industrial buildings, and others. This is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. According to the report, "Global Elevator & Escalator Market Research Report, 2027" published by Actual Market Research, the market was valued at around USD 90 billion, which is anticipated to reach nearly USD 130 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of more than 6% for 2022-2027. The rising usage of elevators and escalators at airports, malls, subways, hospitals, office buildings, and other commercial spaces to offer ease of transit is driving the market growth. By type, the elevator segment leads the market in 2021. The growing geriatric population is another factor boosting its installation. The booming construction sector, resulting in the rapid demand for elevators in high-rise and mid-rise buildings, is further driving the market growth. Similarly, the moving walkway segment is expected to grow with an anticipated CAGR of more than 6%, while the escalator segment is expected to show a decline in the market. Keeping an elevator, escalator, or moving walk functioning at its peak requires regular maintenance and occasional repairs. These services include new installation, maintenance & repair, and modernization, which are put together by the market. Modernization is the next step in the complete life cycle of escalators and elevators. After a certain period, the equipment requires a full replacement. Among these, the maintenance & repair segment accounts for the highest global share, expected to hold around half the market share by the end of the forecast period. One of the major factors driving the growth of the elevators and escalators market is the increasing demand from the end-use sectors like residential, commercial, industrial, etc. Clearly, the market is dominated by the residential end-user segment in 2021. The increasing focus of the government towards high-rise infrastructure, coupled with an increasing need for rapid transit, is expected to fuel the growth of the global elevator and escalator market. Continuous investment for the improvement of infrastructure at public places like railway stations, airports, shopping malls, etc. is further expected to upsurge demand during the forecast period. Tourism is another sector that encourages the demand for elevators and escalators in places of importance for the ease and convenience of tourists visiting the respective countries. These factors are expected to influence the other end-user segment that is expected to grow with an expected CAGR of over 6%. With technological advancements, the industrial and commercial sectors are incorporating modern safety features into escalators, such as skirt brushes in order to prevent objects being caught in the escalators; step level monitors; missing step monitors; handrail motion detectors; sensors to trigger an automatic shutdown in case of an emergency; and others. The urbanization rate across the globe has witnessed a significant increase in demand owing to higher employment and educational opportunities in urban regions. This increase in the urban population has fueled the demand for commercial and institutional buildings. The size of commercial buildings, in terms of square footage, has also increased to accommodate more people. This has increased the importance of vertical transit systems for the smooth function of buildings. These factors have positively influenced the escalator market, as escalators enable the continuous movement of people from one floor to another. Furthermore, to tackle problems of traffic congestion, many governments across the globe are focused on the development of efficient metro rail systems, thereby propelling the demand for the market. In addition, the rise in purchasing power of the masses in developing countries has significantly increased the number of shopping malls. Escalators can be installed within the same space as staircases and will have lower noise and vibration levels. These technical advantages further increase the use of escalators in the market. Growing concerns about ageing infrastructure in North America and Europe are likely to drive the need for elevator services and modernization. However, the maintenance of elevators will largely be influenced by factors including the equipment base, regulatory landscape, and service costs across different countries. Asia-Pacific offers potential growth opportunities, as developing countries such as China and India are projected to be emerging markets, making the Asia-Pacific region the fastest-growing market, expected to cover a larger market share during the forecast period. The regions of Latin America and the Middle East & Africa together contributed to more than 12% of the market in 2021. According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations, the global population living in urban areas is anticipated to reach 68% by 2050, up from 55% in 2018. This is expected to add an estimated 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050. This increase in the urban population will create a demand for increased commercial space, thereby driving the growth of the escalator market. Furthermore, developing countries across the globe have increased investments in subway and metro projects. For instance, as of 2020, India has over 1000 kms of metro rail network under construction, and the network of subways in China reached over 6000 kms in 2019. India is also constructing 21 green-field airports under the UDAN scheme. The development of such public transport projects significantly increases the demand for escalators, as they enable continuous pedestrian movement. In addition, Emaar Properties, which is an international real estate development company based in the UAE, is set to develop a 500,000 sq. ft. shopping mall in Srinagar, India. Such developments in commercial spaces also drive the growth of the escalator market. However, the requirement for frequent maintenance and high energy consumption are factors that restrain the escalator market's growth. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system was developed by the US Green Buildings Council to reduce environmental burden and promote the concept of sustainable buildings. A similar trend has been witnessed in the European region, where European Green Building Councils announced the development of 10 national roadmaps and an EU policy roadmap for decarburizing the building environment. The adoption of smart elevators would reduce this dependency and consumption rate. Elevator manufacturers are manufacturing elevators for mid-and high-rise buildings that are energy-efficient and incorporate smart controls, hardware, and other systems that consume low energy. Also, the growing environmental concerns have increased the demand for green products that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
