A freight elevator also known as goods lift, is specially designed to carry goods, and not passengers. Freight elevators usually have lower speeds as compared to other elevators and are primarily installed to move materials from floor to floor. They are built to carry heavier loads and to withstand tough working conditions. Freight elevators offer multiple features such as smooth transportation of heavy and large goods and the safety of goods while transporting. Freight elevators are extensively used in various industries, in storage facilities, and in factories for the movement of goods between floors.

Growing demand for freight elevators from various end-use sectors such as hospitals and industries is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global freight elevators market. Further, increase in construction of skyscrapers across the globe and the need to transport goods from one floor to another floor is also contributing to the growth of the market. Technologically advanced freight elevators often offer additional features and are likely to spur the demand for freight elevators in the coming years. Furthermore, key players operating in the freight elevators market are primarily focusing on the production of more efficient freight elevators which in turn is likely to spur the demand for freight elevators during the forecast period. However, the threat of substitute products and the high cost of freight elevators are the major factors restraining the growth of the market.
