Elevators or lifts are vertical transport berths housed in a shaft or platform for helping ascend and descend people or materials between floors and levels. They are generally operated by electric motors that power counterweight equipment and traction cables or pump hydraulic fluid to ascend a cylindrical system. Most of the multistoried buildings have lifts to facilitate aid of travel and wheelchair access laws. Elevators are widely used in the construction industries for shipping goods and carrying people from one floor to another.
Elevator Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Growth in Construction Sector
Urbanization and population growth are predicted to add 2.5 billion people to the world's cities by 2050. This will stimulate the construction industry, resulting in increased demand for elevators. Elevators are widely utilized in the construction sector for moving items and people from one floor to the next. With a regional share of 39 percent -41 percent in 2018, Europe leads the elevator market share geographically. According to the European Builders Confederation, the construction industry provides 9% of European GDP.
The increasing inclination towards elevator to escape from everyday stress and boredom will further propel the growth rate of elevator market. Additionally, the growth in female gamblers along with the rapid urbanization will also drive market value growth over forecast period. Furthermore, the availability of low-cost mobile applications, increased digitization, a variety of safe digital payment alternatives, an increase in disposable money and increased use of digital currencies and websites also boosts the overall market's growth.
- Increased Usage of Energy-efficient and Green-building Materials
According to a study conducted by the American Council for an Energy-efficient Economy (ACEEE), elevators and escalators can consume 2 percent -5 percent of the energy used in buildings, with peak operational times reaching 50 percent. This represents an important alternative for reducing global energy consumption and achieving sustainability. Growing environmental concerns have increased the demand for green, environmentally friendly products. Consumer expectations for value-added products for elevators, escalators, and moving walkways are steadily shifting toward premium green building materials. The use of green building materials can significantly reduce emissions. These materials aid in energy conservation, achieve sustainability, lower emissions, and also protect the environment. Therefore, the adoption of green building codes and energy-efficient products will further extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.
- Installation of Advanced IoT Technology-enabled Elevator and Escalator
Additionally, the elevators and escalators, which are essential components of residential and commercial buildings, are experiencing a significant increase in demand worldwide. With the increasing incorporation of ultra-modern facilities ranging from elevator safety solutions to elevator air purification equipment, advancements in Internet of Things (IoT) technology are estimated further to expand the future growth of the elevator market.
- High Maintenance and Installation Costs
However, depending on the type of elevator, maintenance costs can range from USD 120 to USD 2,000 for a single run of repairs. Regularly scheduled maintenance, which may cost between USD 220 and USD 320 per year for semi-annual to annual maintenance, can aid in preventing major problems with the elevator. In the elevator industry, installation costs are also quite high. Elevators require timely repair and maintenance to function properly. Such maintenance activities can cost several times the initial purchase price. As a result, elevator installation and maintenance costs will be a major impediment to industry statistics.
- Stringent Regulations Associated with Elevators
Elevators and escalators are subject to stringent restrictions and standards, which have the potential to stifle the market. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Elevator and Escalator Safety Trust, the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation, and the Elevator Advisory Board (Board) of the Texas Health and Safety Code Safety have all outlined several rules and regulations in the industry to ensure public safety. For instance, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers has developed important regulations for escalator, elevator, moving walkway, and related equipment safety in design, installation, operation, inspection, testing, maintenance, alteration, and repair. ASME A17.7-2007/CSA B44.7-07 is one of the bi-national codes for elevators and escalators. Manufacturers are required to follow these regulations because a single flaw in the operation of this equipment can lead to accidents, which further reduces industry's overall profit. Therefore, this factor is projected to pose as a challenge for the market.

COVID-19 Impact on Elevator Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a huge impact on the elevator market. With the increase in COVID-19 cases, emergency measures were put in place and the suspension of many activities and facilities in 2020. Because the majority of global elevator and escalator companies have their headquarters in APAC, Europe, and North America, the COVID-19 epidemic has impacted the elevator and escalator markets. The impact of COVID-19 caused a disruption in the supply chain, delaying market expansion due to a scarcity of raw materials and a labour shortage. The COVID-19 pandemic had little impact on the elevators and escalators industry in 2020, resulting in a minor decrease in CAGR. The market has been impacted by reduced raw material output and supply chain issues.
