Aerial Work Platforms Market Trends

  • Growing infrastructure and construction projects are driving market growth

Market CAGR for Aerial Work Platforms is being driven by the growing infrastructure and construction projects. A mechanical device or aerial work platform is sometimes referred to as an aerial machine, bucket truck, or mobile elevating work platform. It is designed to give people and equipment temporary access to places that are inaccessible, typically at a height. In order to provide an independent work platform, aerial work platforms are widely used for a variety of construction and maintenance tasks, including arboriculture.

Additionally, Construction, electric and telecommunication, retail, and other end-use industries are expected to grow at a faster rate than others due to the improving urban and rural infrastructure and government initiatives to provide technological facilities like telecommunication networks and electrical utilities to the world's fastest-growing populations in China, India, Bangladesh, Brazil, Indonesia, and the United States, among other countries. Due to the fact that many end-use sectors employ aerial lifts for both new construction and routine maintenance, it is predicted that this would raise the need for aerial work platforms. Airports utilize an enormous amount of boom and scissor lifts for aircraft cleaning and maintenance as well as for the placement and storage of luggage.

Storage and warehouse facilities are necessary in an effort to keep up a steady supply of goods and equipment, particularly for e-commerce and logistics enterprises. Keeping and storing the necessary goods helps to keep the inventory current and lessens material shortages. Growing e-commerce platforms are the main factors driving the expansion of warehouse spaces. A lot of scissors vertical and boom lifts are used in nearby storage and warehouse units to handle products and move them from one location to another in order to meet the shipping criteria that e-commerce giants have promised. These aerial platforms support simple material handling and bulk order lookup, as well as helping businesses keep their delivery commitments.

For instance, in December 2018, new rules were established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) that are applicable to all aerial lift operators, owners, and supervisors. These laws cover scissor lifts, boom lifts, and under-bridge inspection devices. By harmonizing North American equipment standards with international norms, these standards seek to enhance safety precautions. Thus, result in driving the Aerial Work Platforms market revenue.

Aerial Work Platforms Market Segment Insights:

Aerial Work Platforms Product Insights

The Aerial Work Platforms market segmentation, based on Product includes Boom Lifts, Scissor Lifts, and Vertical Lift. In 2023, the scissor lifts segment dominated the market. The scissor lift's small size, ability to load quickly, and high operational efficiency are what have contributed to this segment's rise. Scissor lifts are commonly used for vertical lifting and material positioning. Their ergonomic designs lower the risk of workplace injuries while increasing worker productivity.

Aerial Work Platforms Propulsion Type Insights

The Aerial Work Platforms market segmentation, based on Propulsion Type, includes ICE, Electric, and Air. In 2023, the ICE category generated the most income. The market for lifts with diesel engines that are utilized for heavy-duty outdoor applications is mostly driven by this segment's growing demand. Because of its durability and ability to sustain harsh loads, these AWPs can climb higher and support heavier loads.

Aerial Work Platforms Lifting Height Insights

The Aerial Work Platforms market segmentation, based on Lifting Height, includes Less than 20 ft, 21-50 ft, and more than 51 ft. In 2023, the more than 51 ft segment dominated the market. Installing, inspecting, and maintaining wind turbines, as well as installing solar panels on rooftops and large-scale solar farms, need the use of aerial work platforms with lifting heights of more than 51 feet. A higher-capacity need for improved AWPs is being driven by the expanding renewable energy sector.

Aerial Work Platforms Application Insights

The Aerial Work Platforms market segmentation, based on Application, includes Construction, Utilities, Logistics & Transportation, and Others. In 2023, the construction category generated the most income. On construction sites, rough terrain aerial platforms are mostly used to access higher altitudes. These locations are vulnerable to worker accidents involving heights. Compared to traditional methods, AWPs provide workers and operators with enhanced safety and flexibility.
