On the back of rapid urbanization in several emerging economies in Asia Pacific, the global elevators market is flourishing. A recent business publication by Transparency Market Research (TMR) has evaluated the lucrativeness of the market for elevators and escalators across the world and forecasted the demand, in terms of value, to increment at a notable CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023. In terms of volume, the market is anticipated to gain new demand at a CAGR of 6.3% during the said forecast period. As per the estimations of the report, the opportunities in the global elevators market will translate into a revenue of US$330.45 bn by 2023, substantially up from its calculated worth of US$181.50 bn in 2015.

Global Shares Consolidated Among Five Leading Players

As far as the competitive landscape is concerned, the analysts of the TMR report have detected a consolidated scenario wherein the top five vendors accounted for 75% of the total shares in the global elevators market. The dominance of the five market leaders, namely ThyssenKrupp AG, KONE Corporation, Schindler Holding Ltd., Otis Elevator Company, and Fujitec Co. Ltd., is a reflection of their financial might and geographical presence, which they have expanded aggressively in the recent past. In addition to that, the market leaders are constantly improving their product portfolio, enhancing their offerings according to customer’s needs and establish themselves with worth of mouth. Going forward, these players are expected to continue having a foray into the APAC region, wherein the building and construction sector is prospering. Relatively less-established players, such as United Technologies, Hitachi Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Hyundai Elevator Co., Ltd., Toshiba Corporation, and Electra Ltd., are finding it hard to eat into the shares of aforementioned market leaders but the sheer volume of demand is also ensuring their profitability. Provided these players get aggressive for their regional expansion, their future prospects in the global elevators market are bright.

Prospering Building and Construction Industry Driving Demand

Apart from the rapid urbanization across various economies, the advancements in the construction industry on the back of development of smart cities and changing demographic trends are some of the other factors augmenting the demand in the global elevators market. The analysts have detected that advanced systems of escalators and elevators go a long way towards easing the vertical transportation requirements of passengers and goods.
