Historical Trends Vs. Future Market Projections

Over the past half-decade, 2016-2020, the market expanded at a meager CAGR of 1.1%. However, digitalization across industries and incorporation of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) is projected to be the prime reason for rapid growth during the forecast period. 

Furthermore, numerous initiatives have been adopted by governments of developing nations for inviting foreign investment in infrastructure development. Additionally, these nations are planning to build smart cities with high-rise buildings to optimally utilize space for the coming generation. These multi-storey buildings would require elevators to move passengers and freight, thereby taking the market ahead.

Adding to this, developed nations are investing huge amounts to replace or repair existing elevators with newer elevator components so as to comply with the latest energy efficiency norms.

Moreover, smart elevators are on the rise, which is aiding market development. Besides, developed countries are looking to implement IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) for reducing the risk associated with elevator usage and provide an overall pleasant experience.

By virtue of the aforementioned factors, the global elevator component market is projected to surge at a high CAGR of more than 9% over the forecast period.

How is Urbanization & Public Infrastructure Spending Impacting Demand for Elevator Components?

Global economy is expanding continuously, driving the need for high-quality public infrastructure around the world. Governments across the globe are increasingly focusing on the provision of better resources to their populations, thereby adding to the infrastructure investment significantly.

Developing regions such as India, China, and other BRICS nations are increasingly indulging in the development of advanced infrastructure. For instance, India is planning to invest around US$ 1.4 Trillion in the coming years on its overall infrastructure development projects. These factors are poised to provide impetus to elevator sales and drive the elevator components market forward.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Country wise Analysis

Why is China a Huge Market for Elevator Components?

China is home to the largest population on the planet. The Chinese government is aware of the fact and is adopting innovation-driven approaches and optimal utilization of space so as to build numerous skyscrapers to meet the growing demand for housing units for its population and as of 2020, it is home to over 3,300 high-rise buildings.

Moreover, as of 2020, China is home to the world’s largest number of low, medium and high-rise buildings and other countries are way behind. These buildings require elevators for both freight and passenger movement and continuous repair and replacement of ailing elevator components, which makes China an attractive market for elevator components in the forecast period.

Owing to these reasons, China is poised to remain a lucrative market for elevator components and grow at a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period.

What Makes the U.S. an Attractive Market for Elevator Components?

During the historical period, 2016-2020, the U.S. market did not show any growth potential, owing to the already mature market in the region. The US is already home to over 1,060 high-rise buildings above 150 meters, which requires constant monitoring and replacing of ageing elevator components with newer, more energy-efficient and compact elevator components.

The Trump administration has put in place plans to spend around US$ 2 Trillion to renovate the existing aging infrastructure in the coming years. This is expected to create exciting opportunities for elevator component manufacturers during the forecast period.

Owing to these reasons, the US is poised to remain a lucrative market for elevator components and grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period.

Will Demand for Elevator Components in GCC Countries Increase Over the Coming Years?

The UAE is one of the 6 members of the Gulf Cooperation Council and has remained the skyscraper hub in the Middle East & Africa with over 430 high-rise buildings in the country. Further, Burj Khalifa, the world’s largest building at 828 meters, is located in Dubai, UAE. Moreover, a number of construction projects are being undertaken by the country’s administration to convert the oil-based economy to a tourism-based economy in the coming years.

Additionally, Dubai is also building the largest solar park worldwide and investing significantly in the development of an advanced city through technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart Dubai 2021 continues a journey that began in 1999, when the administration announced the first ICT strategy.

Smart infrastructure and high-rise buildings will require smart elevators, and this in turn drives the requirement of elevator components in the UAE during the forecast period. Owing to these factors, GCC countries are poised to remain a lucrative market for elevator components and grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period.

How Big is Demand from Passenger Elevators?

elevator component market application by FactMR

Global population is evaluated to be around 7.8 Billion in FY2020. Among these, over 50% live in urban areas. Of these urban areas, China, the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Japan and South Korea have the largest number of high-rise buildings above 150 meters, and hold a majority share in the overall number of high-rise buildings found in the world.

Together these top 5 countries have around 5,421 high-rise buildings, among which a majority are a blend of residential and commercial buildings. These buildings are pretty sophisticated in nature and require compact elevators with higher energy efficiency and endurance so as to provide an exceptional experience to its passengers and necessitate relatively less maintenance.

Coming to the population density in these buildings, South Korea and Japan house the highest number of people at 500 and 336 per one Km2. This is due to the fact that these countries are investing in the development of high-rise buildings for both residential and commercial purposes.

Here, elevators need to be equipped with the latest technology and safety features so as to deliver a pleasant experience. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the passenger end-use market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
