Cylindrical Locks Market Overview

Global cylindrical locks market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.2% and reach a value of USD 5,524.64 million by 2028. A cylinder is installed in the lever with the latch bolt connected to the chassis. When the key is turned in, the pins inside the cylinder line up and cause the lock to open. The biggest advantage of a cylindrical lock is its relatively quick installation as compared to other types of mechanical locks. Cylindrical locks are found in both residential and commercial places. Several types of cylindrical locks are available in the global market, such as euro-cylinder lock, oval cylinder lock, deadbolt, KIK cylinders, and interchangeable core cylinders.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in lockdown across regions, border restrictions, and breakdown of transportation networks. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the economic uncertainty is much higher than past outbreaks such as the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), avian flu, swine flu, bird flu, and Ebola, owing to the escalating number of infected people and the uncertainty about the end of the crisis.

Due to the outbreak, there was a spike in demand for essential goods such as sanitizers and masks, with household essentials such as toilet paper and bread being stocked up by customers. Most of the customer’s budget was shifted to essential goods, and a major downfall in non-essential businesses was observed. As more cities went into lockdown, non-essential businesses were ordered to remain closed during the first half of the pandemic. Cylindrical locks being a non-essential product, the demand for the same was affected noticeably. The outbreak has disrupted the growth of real estate across the globe. Cylindrical locks are used for security purposes. The global market for locks has been growing due to the deployment of security-based products such as cylindrical and digital locks in residential, commercial, and industrial spaces.

Market Dynamics

The global cylindrical locks market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. Cylindrical locks are specially designed to be installed into a hole or bore cut in the face of the door while a latch bolt is installed into a bore on the edge of the door. There are several factors positively or negatively affecting the market growth.


  • Rising Need for Two-Way Cylindrical Locks in Emergency Exits

Two-way locks accept a key on either side of the door and even if it is not completely rotated. A key or keypad is required on either side of the door to activate the two-way locking mechanism. For instance, Lockey Digital Systems’ 3230DC keyless mechanical digital double-sided combination spring latch door lock provides keyless security, fits most doors, is easy to install and use, and weather resistance. The ease of use at exit and entry points and prevention against self-locking results in the increased demand for two-way cylindrical locks for emergency exits.

  • Growth of the Organized Retail Sector

Economic growth, growing middle class, and high migration rates from rural to urban areas have led to the influx of international retailers worldwide; this has prompted the expansion of existing retail outlets in countries such as the US, Germany, and Japan, driving the demand for cylindrical locks. Online retailing is trending for cylindrical locks across the globe. With instant access to catalogs and price lists, customers have a clear idea of the available products, simplifying purchasing decisions. It has been observed that online retailers are focusing on capturing a large portion of the market share than brick-and-mortar retailers. Consumers are increasingly inclined toward online shopping to minimize shopping time.


  • Presence of Private-Label Brands

Retailers across the world, private-label brands, and international brands offer low-cost substitutes to consumers and increase revenue generation. According to MRFR analysis, retail sales for cylindrical locks have increased gradually over the past two years due to increased sales of private-label brands. These private-label manufacturers also sell their products in the unorganized market, thereby limiting the growth of the players in the global cylindrical locks market.


  • Increasing Popularity of Safer Locking Systems Through Innovations and Upgrades

Cylindrical locks are the most convenient and secure way to protect properties or belongings. Manufacturers have introduced advanced technologies in the mechanism of these locks in bolts, levers, and springs. Moreover, the use of advanced materials to manufacture the shell or outer covering of locks offers tensile strength and pressure resistance. Therefore, technological developments offer the manufacturers of cylindrical locks lucrative opportunities for the vendors operating in the global cylindrical locks market.
