This study analyzes the world elevator industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., passenger and freight elevators, escalators and moving walkways), service (installation, modernization and repair), market (residential, nonresidential), world region and for 16 countries. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles industry players.

World demand to rise nearly 6% annually through 2017

Global demand for elevator equipment (including elevators, escalators, moving walkways, and associated parts) and services was $86 billion in 2012. Demand is projected to grow almost six percent annually through 2017, a deceleration from the pace of the 2007-2012 period, when gains were fueled by explosive growth of more than 25 percent per year in China. Even though the Chinese market will cool from that breakneck pace, it will still generate nearly one-half of the increase in the world demand for elevator equipment and services between 2012 and 2017.

Other developing markets that will contribute to global advances through 2017 include India, as the country adds 50 million urban residents and per capita GDP increases faster than the global average. Central and South America is expected to see above-average increases, led by Brazil, the region’s largest elevator market. The Africa/Mideast region is also expected to experience strong growth, though much of the expansion will be confined to Turkey and high-income urban areas in the Middle East.

US market to outpace most high-income countries

Growth in the US demand for elevator services will outpace that in most highincome countries, as the market will be recovering from a very low 2012 base. Increases in Japan and Western Europe will be below the world average, but will also mark significant increases from the marginal growth in the 2007 to 2012 period.

Elevator equipment demand to outpace elevator services

In 2007, global demand for elevator services exceeded demand for equipment. Western Europe, then the world’s largest regional market, had a large installed base of elevators and stringent safety codes bolstered the modernization and repair service market. However, 2012 marked a significant change in the global market, as demand for equipment exceeded service demand for the first time, driven by strong growth in new unit installations in the developing world. That trend is expected to continue through 2017, as the many new units recently added in developing countries will not need as many costly repairs as Western Europe’s aging stock, and safety codes may be less strictly enforced.

China’s share of new unit sales to decline slightly

Passenger and freight elevator sales on a per unit basis were 914,000 units in 2012. While the Chinese elevator market made up over 30 percent of global demand by value, it was even more significant on a per unit basis, as 58 percent of the world’s new elevator units were sold in China in 2012. World new unit sales are forecast to grow 3.4 percent annually through 2017 to 1.1 million, though China’s share will decline slightly.

MRL elevators to continue gaining market share

Through 2017, the equipment market will focus on energy efficient elevators, escalators and moving walkways. Manufacturers have introduced many new technologies and improved existing ones to be more efficient. Space and energy saving machine room-less (MRL) elevators will continue to increase their penetration of the global elevator market through 2017, and will dominate the market in the ensuing years.

Additional Information

This study analyzes the global market for elevators (including passenger and freight elevators), escalators and moving walkways, and associated parts, such as controls, doors, sensors, and power transmission equipment, which are sold separately. This study also covers demand for installation services and modernization services. For purposes of this study, general references to elevators or the elevator market will include escalators and moving walkways, parts, and services while elevators themselves, often referred to as lifts in European publications, will be described as passenger and freight elevators. Products beyond the scope of this study include aerial work platforms (man lifts) and conveyor systems used for the transport of goods.

Historical data (2002, 2007, 2012) and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 are provided for elevator supply and demand by type (i.e., passenger and freight elevators, escalators and moving walkways, parts and miscellaneous equipment, installation services, modernization and repair services) and market (i.e.,residential, nonresidential) for six regions and 18 major national markets. Market data are valued in US dollars, but data for passenger and freight elevators are also provided in units.

  • Hong Kong Infrastructure Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 107
    BMI View: We do not expect a significant improvement in construction growth in 2014. This is because we expect several factors that dampened construction activity in 2013 - namely, a near-term decline in the project pipeline and a slowdown in China's economic activity - to grow in prominence in 2014. However, we reiterate this does not translate to a dearth in growth opportunities in the city over the long term as the government has a large number of construction projects planned in future. Key ......

    BMI View: Despite plenty of project oppurtunities in Kuwait's construction sector, particularly in industrial construction and transport and energy infrastructure, the country's business environment is limiting investment and investor interest. Political involvement in awarding of contracts, claims of corruption and numerous project redesigns have been putting off foreign investors from key infrastructure projects in Kuwait, despite government's support towards development projects. In compariso......

    BMI View: Construction activity in Taiwan is on the path of recovery and we expect this recovery to accelerate in 2014, with annual sector growth increasing from 0.8% in 2013 to 1.8% in 2014. There are however, pertinent risks to our forecasts - namely the structural economic deficiencies within China, Taiwan's main trading partner, and the municipal elections in Taiwan.

    BMI View: We have upwardly revised our construction industry forecast for Egypt to 4.6% in FY2014 on the back of a stronger than expected FY2013 which continued through Q114. We believe the industry has picked up momentum again and there is a strong demand for infrastructure projects. However, we highlight that risks to our forecast lie to the downside as the country's business environment remains weak, deterring much-needed foreign investment. Uncertainty over Egypt's future will continue to li......

    BMI View: The German construction industry performed better than expected in 2013, as our view for a recovery in the sector plays out. In 2014 we forecast real growth in the industry at 1.6% in real terms driven largely by continued investment in the renewables sector and large demand for residential buildings. We have upped our medium-term forecast as the government moves to address low levels of domestic investment and ageing infrastructure with pledges of investing billions of euros in road a......

    BMI View: We believe political upheaval in Thailand has not only further deteriorated the short-term outlook for the country's construction sector, but has also started to negatively impact the sector's longterm outlook. The ongoing political crisis in Thailand remains unresolved and looks set to intensify before a resolution can be reached. This has already resulted in fresh delays to the government's THB2trn (US $62bn) infrastructure plan and could further limit the growth potential in the ent......

Dubai's real estate market is looking strong and more sustainable than was the case before the 2008 crash and Abu Dhabi's market seems to have bottomed out.
