Cable Cars and Ropeways Market

Cable Cars and Ropeways Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Trends, Growth, and Forecast 2020 - 2030

The escalating demand for cable cars in the tourism industry as well as urban transport will serve as a good growth generator for the cable cars and ropeways market across the assessment period of 2020-2030. Although metros and subways have made their mark as feasible public transport mechanisms, the cost of constructing such transport networks is not affordable and practical. This factor is boosting the demand for cable cars on a large scale. Based on all these aspects, the cable cars and ropeways market will observe exponential growth.

  • The tourism industry is expanding at a rapid pace. The COVID-19 pandemic has ruined the tourism sector but with the emergence of vaccination drives and other developments, the tourism sector is slowly picking up demand. These factors will bring expansive growth opportunities for the cable cars and ropeways market.
  • The reliability and safety of ropeways will prove to be a profitable growth prospect for the cable cars and ropeways market. The increasing funding by the government bodies of numerous countries will add extra stars of growth to the cable cars and ropeways market.
  • Strategic collaborations will help in the overall growth of the cable cars and ropeways market. The players indulge in these activities for strengthening their foothold, eventually contributing to the growth.

Global Cable Cars and Ropeways Market: Overview

Cable cars are small cabins that make use of suspended cables to transport goods and people over short distances and difficult terrain. These are usually used to cover uneven ground as when climbing to a higher altitude, where conventional road transport cannot operate. Being cheaper to implement than roadways, they find demand in such areas. 

Increasingly, cable cars and ropeways are being utilized in urban settings to circumvent heavy traffic and reach inaccessible areas. So their use is extending from far flung regions to mainstream cities, where they make logistics easier for goods as well as people. An increasing number of cities sited over difficult terrain plan to use this technology, making the market for cable cars and ropeways lucrative in the future (2020 to 2030), as per Transparency Market Research. 

Global Cable Cars and Ropeways Market: Competitive Landscape

A number of manufactures globally are focused on this demand intensive market. The market scenario is regionally fragmented owing to the presence of players distributed worldwide. Some of these players are-

  • Doppelmayr Garaventa Group
  • Vergokan
  • Kreischberg: Cableways
  • Dubrovnik cable cars
  • Kropivnik Cableways Pvt. Ltd.
  • Damodar ropeways
  • Bullwheel international cable car corp

These manufactures plan to expand operations into areas that are asking for more cable cars to deal with logistical problems. Acquiring sub sectors like road clearing, and increasing visibility to local governments is set to be primary strategies in the future.

Global Cable Cars and Ropeways Market: Key Trends and Drivers

  • Urbanization results when population increases to spill over into urban areas from the countryside in search of better jobs and amenities. 68% of the world's population will reside in urban areas by 2050, a United Nations report suggests. As available area will fall short, land would have to be taken up for development purposes. Cable cars are of vital importance here in not just initial construction, but also sustenance of such areas, as witnessed in the high placed cities of many South American countries. 
  • The tourism industry is also expected to give an impetus to the cable cars and ropeways market. This industry is expected to grow at a rate of 0.2% to the end of 2020 to about 1.5 trillion USD. As new places are explored by enthusiasts, demand for cable cars and ropeways would grow. All sorts of logistical issues are solved by using ropeways. Cable cars offer a panoramic view of the terrain they bypass, hence are favored among tourists.
  • A hindrance to this market could be fear around the safety of these mid-air travelling cabins. Also, installation costs involved in some areas are often quite high as quality can ill be compromised upon when considering ropeways. This effect could be overcome by spreading awareness about standard testing measures of ropeway products from manufactures and good site planning to save on unnecessary costs. 

Global Cable Cars and Ropeways Market: Regional Analysis

Europe and Latin America are expected to register the fastest growth in this market in the future. This can be attributed to a large area of these regions being covered by high rise mountains and valleys that are being developed to cater to a growing population. 

The North American region is also adopting ropeways and cable cars to cater to tourism and development requirements in countryside, and is set to register a steady growth rate as a result. In the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, South Korea is also set grow strongly into the cable cars market given the hilly terrain over large parts of this country.
