Elevators And Escalators Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Construction of High Rise Buildings

The concept of high rise building and skyscrapers emerged successfully mainly owing to development of newer construction material and elevators, which helps to transit people onboard across the building. Overcrowded cities with busier lifestyle, has given birth to the high rise buildings, which possess higher ability to shelter people. Due to this, advantages, it is used for residential and commercial purpose. The construction of the tall and high rise building as escalating at a rapid pace, which is the prominent factor driving the market growth. As per the data shared by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), the count of the building above height of 200 meters worldwide has been increased 12.3% in 2017, when compared to 2016, whereas, the building above 300 meters has shown a growth of 66% in 2017 from 2013.

  • Rise in Focus On the Modernizing the Commercial Infrastructure

With the world getting more advanced, there exist higher need for more efficient and advanced technologies. While considering commercial infrastructure, higher focus towards revamping and modernizing in order to provide higher benefits to the public. Also, increasing installation of the escalators in the high traffic areas such as railway stations and metro station, for carrying more population in a single transit, is further pushing the market growth. Increasing projects for modernizing the railways, metro and airports especially in developing economies such as India, is further pushing the market growth uphill.

Market Restraints:

  • High Repair and Maintenance Cost

With excessive usage of elevators in high traffic commercial spaces and moderate to high usage in residential buildings, there exist the maintenance at regular intervals. The maintenance and repair cost may or may not be related to the elevator failure, but it is often done in order to promote smooth working of the lift. The average cost dedicated for maintenance cost ranges from USD 170 to USD 2000, however, this cost rises in case of emergency. Also, the average Repair and Maintenance Cost for the elevators and escalators installed in the high rise building is higher than that of the low rise buildings.
