Elevator and Escalator Market Size, Scope, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

Various industries demand elevators and escalators because they provide comfort and ease for the movement of people and goods between the different floors of a building. These are some of the main reasons that have led to the growth of the industry. The residential industry has long been the main contributor to the growing demand for elevators and escalators. But in recent times, it has been in close competition with the commercial industry.

Increasing investment in commercial and residential infrastructure in developing and developed economies is driving the market growth. Construction work from the largest and tallest commercial projects in various regions is likely to increase product adoption. Factors such as increasing urbanization, increasing digitization, increasing geriatric population, growth of the construction business, and aging of the E&E installed base is said to drive market growth.

Recent Developments:

  • As Otis celebrates the 20th anniversary of its flagship Gen2® elevator, it also celebrates a milestone: surpassing one million units sold, making this revolutionary elevator the best-selling system of all time. Otis Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: OTIS) is the world's leading elevator and escalator manufacturer, installation, and service provider.
  • Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) today announced the establishment of MELCO Elevator Lao Sole Co., Ltd. (MLAO) to accelerate the growth of its elevator and escalator activities in the promising Mekong regional market.
  • KONE Elevator India, a leading elevator and escalator manufacturer and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Finland-based KONE Corporation, launched the world's first revolutionary class of digitally connected KONE DX-class elevators, which will redefine the elevator experience
  • Commercial and residential buildings, medium to ultra-fast elevators - We are your partner for vertical transport!

Drivers and Restraints of Elevator and Escalator Market:


Elevator and escalator manufacturers focus on creating sustainable products to appeal to environmentally conscious consumers. Green elevators have several features, including LED lights, recycled materials, and water-soluble paints. Additionally, escalator and elevator companies are focusing on using alternatives to rope and pulley systems, such as magnetic motors, which are gaining popularity with customers. In addition, the recognition given to these green products attracts investment from manufacturers.


However, market growth would be compromised by the high cost of installation and configuration, a shortage of skilled labor, and strict safety standards. Some notable trends may include the acceleration in the development of smart cities, the increase in tourism activities, the increasing penetration of new technologies, and the increase in demand energy efficient elevators.

Elevator and Escalator Market Segmentation:

By Type:

  • Elevators (passenger, freight, single, and double-deck elevators) 
  • Escalator 
  • Moving walkways 

Elevators represent 2% to 7% of the total energy consumed in the entire building and have a significant margin for improvement in energy consumption. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on the development of energy-efficient elevators. These elevators consume less energy with improved hardware and controls and offer greater compactness. In addition, increased government initiatives to conserve energy are expected to lead to the growth of the market for energy-efficient elevators and escalators. For example, the Swiss government encouraged the renovation of old elevators to improve energy efficiency in 2019, with Schindler Switzerland as a technology partner. Therefore, it is likely to result in a strong demand for electrically competent elevators.

By Service:

  • New installation 
  • Maintenance & repair 
  • Modernization 

The elevator market derives its revenue from new elevator installations (unit and service), maintenance, and modernization. Smart elevators are gaining popularity in high-rise projects because they reduce waiting time and allow people to reach their destination floors in minimal time. These technological advancements in elevators will increase their adoption.

By End-use Industry: 

  • Residential 
  • Commercial 
  • Institutional 
  • Infrastructure 
  • Others (industrial and marine industry) 

Escalators and elevators have a high penetration in shopping centers, such as shopping malls, shopping malls, and shared workplaces. The growing trend towards eco-efficiency, flexible design, and safety is driving the commercial segment. Additionally, the rise of self-employment has sparked demand for more coworking in recent years. Therefore, the evolution of office space investments is expected to further contribute to the growth of the escalator and elevator market. For example, in 2018, the Indian embassy official said it would raise around $ 775.7 million through the First Real Estate Trust of India.

In addition, the disruption of the supply chain of raw materials and the closure of construction activities, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, has caused a drop in the demand for elevators and escalators, which ultimately had a negative impact on the growth of your market Worldwide. The elevator and escalator market has been negatively affected in recent months due to lockdowns imposed in most countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in December 2019. Several countries, including Italy, United States United States and India have witnessed curfew-like situations where businesses (except essential services) were not allowed to operate. Furthermore, the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has slowed the growth of the construction industry in recent months, leading to delays, which can be attributed to several disrupted supply chains. Most commercial construction projects have been ordered closed to slow the spread of the virus. The factors mentioned above have had a significant impact on the demand for elevators and escalators market in recent months. Elevator and escalator manufacturers and the entire construction industry are expected to face various challenges as most commercial projects are likely to be unfinished or delayed due to supply chain disruptions, flow restrictions of cash, lack of availability of labor and stoppage of production. The cessation of construction activity at the project sites put increased financial pressure on several manufacturers and developers.
