Escalator Market Overview


 


The escalators are considered as the transporting machines that are installed in the commercial, residential and industrial spaces owing to the ease of transportation of the people or heavy loads. The escalator market value is expected to surpass USD 5,146 million by 2022 while registering a healthy CAGR of over 5.3%. The escalator market growth is increasing owing to the adoption of IoT-based technologies that are efficient in carrying out the operation efficiently. The IoT technology helps in collecting, exchanging, and analyzing the data acquired from the different devices. The IoT-enabled escalators are efficient in communication between the devices and allow the users to operate using mobile applications. Such advancements in the escalator industry are driving the overall industry in recent years.


 


The vendors are designing the escalators with machine room-less technology for efficient operation and smooth ride. Such factors are highly preferred in the residential sectors and thereby increasing the overall growth of the escalator industry. 


 


COVID 19 Analysis:


 


Like several industrial verticals, the construction and the building industries were facing decline owing to the reduced workforce and restrictions in movement. The raw materials required for the construction were not transported as per demand and there was severe restriction for the laborers to gather at the construction site. Such factors have hindered the utilization of escalators in construction activities. Also, the escalators were not operating considering the spread of the COVID virus in the malls and shopping areas. Therefore the escalator market value has been affected significantly during the pandemic.


 


The declination of the economic condition of several countries has also significantly affected the overall growth of the escalator industry during the pandemic.


 


Market dynamics:


 


Market drivers:


 


The rapid migration of huge populations from the rural regions to the urban regions and the continuous expansion of the urban regions are considered as the major market drivers of escalator market growth. Rapid urbanization has increased the demand for high-rise buildings and structures and the demand for sophisticated housing. 


 


A recent report from the United Nations Department of economic and social affairs states that over 60% of the world population is expected to be moved to the urban regions with higher living standards and facilities by the year 2030.

Similarly, the lack of skilled professionals for operating the industrial escalators is leading to emergencies in major cases. Poor maintenance and lack of safety measures are also hindering the escalator market growth.


 


The amount of energy consumed for the operation of the industrial elevators and escalators is considered as the major restraining factor of the escalator industry. 


 


Market challenges:


 


The infrastructure developments are highly influenced by the economic condition of the countries; therefore the declining economic growth significantly affects the growth of the escalator industry. 


 


The production of the escalators is highly capital intensive and the emerging market players have to face the higher initial investment required for the installation and setting up according to the facilities. Such factors are considered as the major challenges in the escalator industry.


 


Cumulative growth analysis:


 


The escalator market value was at USD 6007 million in the year 2020 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 7522.9 million by the year 2027 while registering a CAGR of over 3.0% during the forecast period. The growth rate estimates are done by considering the growing demand in the residential sectors. The growing urbanization and changing lifestyle of the population are propelling the demand for sophisticated infrastructure and residential units. Such factors are increasing the escalator market growth in recent years. On the other hand, the construction industries are increasingly adopting new technologies to enhance productivity, which is presenting lucrative opportunities for the overall growth of the escalator industry in developed countries.


 


Moreover the governmental plans in developing the countries by altering numerous infrastructures such as dams, bridges, highways, ports, and educational institutions. Such factors are bolstering the overall growth of the escalator industry in recent years.


 


Value chain analysis: 


 


The escalator market value is highly influenced by the development in the commercial sectors and construction sectors. The residential segment is currently holding a higher market share owing to the increasing population and urbanization across the globe. Moreover, the rise in the real estate industry across the developed regions is boosting the overall growth of the escalator industry. In the countries like Africa, the demand for the expansion of the areas such as retail, hospitality, commercial sectors, healthcare, and residential areas are rapidly increasing which are stimulating the overall growth of the escalator industry.


 


Similarly, governmental development projects, such as airports, metro expansions, and social infrastructure in developing countries like India are considered as the major market drivers of the escalator industry. For instance, Jewar airport and expansion of the metro are some of the key developments in Noida, Delhi which is the capital city of India. Such rapid infrastructure developments carried out by governmental organizations are some of the key factors that are propelling the overall growth of the escalator industry.
