According to a new study by Fact.MR, the global sales of elevators are estimated to surpass 900 thousand units in 2019. The elevators industry continues to remain influenced by various factors, which range from the resurgent growth in new residential construction, to innovative developments in modern elevator designs such as cloud predictive maintenance and intuitive technologies.
The study opines that demand for elevators shows no signs of abating alongside notable growth in the commercial, residential, as well as industrial construction activities. The elevators industry remains one of the most innovative business areas, influenced by international and national regulatory standards, which have encouraged leading players to introduce ground-breaking developments that lead to significant cost-savings for customers.
‘Smart’ Continues to be the Buzzword in Elevators Landscape
The study indicates that increasing demand for jerk- and shock-proof, faster vertical transit in high-rise buildings – future skyline of metropolitan cities – has rubbed off on technology advancements in the elevators market. This, coupled with regulatory mandates on manufacturers apropos of safety and quality, continue to favor growth of the elevators market.
IoT-connected smart elevators have gained immense traction in the recent past, with manufacturers directing their focus toward integration of technologies that notify faults and errors in the equipment prior to their occurrence, thereby saving time and money for customers. Proliferation of IoT in the elevators market has meant that modern equipment are witnessing notable advancements such as prediction of traffic in real-time, ease & convenience in communication with service teams, and mobile-application based elevator operations.
According to the study, Asia Pacific is likely to account for a significant share of global construction spending over the assessment period, driven by the growing infrastructure development, particularly in China and India. The exponential growth in the residential sector and construction activity across Asia Pacific region has resulted in growing application of elevators. Manifold factors such as demographic changes, and rising demand for skyscrapers are likely to reinforce the demand for modern building infrastructure, including elevators in the coming years.
