The report covers a detailed study on market drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges that are affecting the growth of this industry. It also aims to study the individual growth trends, prospects, and contributions of various segments to the total market. 

Rising usage of elevators and escalators at airports, malls, subways, hospitals, office buildings, and other commercial spaces to offer ease in transit is driving the market growth. By type, the elevator segment leads the market at a share of 58.26% in 2020. The growing geriatric population is another factor boosting its installation.

The booming construction sector resulting in the rapid demand for elevators in high-rise and mid-rise buildings is further pushing the market growth. Similarly, the moving walkway segment is to grow with an anticipated CAGR of 6.70%, while the escalator segment is expected to show a decline in the market.

Keeping an elevator, escalator, or moving walk functioning at its peak requires regular maintenance and occasional repairs. These services include new installation, maintenance & repair, and modernization, which put together form the market. The life cycle of the escalators and elevators starts with the new equipment installation, which in 2020 accounted for a value of USD 33.14 Billion.

Modernization is the next step in the complete life cycle of escalators and elevators. After a certain period, the equipment requires a full replacement. Among these, the maintenance & repair segment amounts to the highest, globally, expected to hold a market of 45.44% by the forecasted period.

One of the major factors driving the growth of the elevators and escalators market is the increasing demand from the end-use sectors like residential, commercial, industrial, etc. Much evidently, the market is dominated by the residenial end-user segment, which accounted for a value of USD 31.30 Billion in the year 2015. The increasing focus of government towards high-rise infrastructures coupled with an increasing need for rapid transit is expected to fuel the growth of the global elevators and escalators market.

The commercial end-user segment is expected to show a marginal decline and reach 28.81% in the year 2020. Continuous investment for the improvement of infrastructure at public places like railway stations, airports, shopping malls, etc. is further expected to upsurge the demand during the forecast period.

Tourism is another sector, which encourages the demand for elevators and escalators in places of importance for the ease and convenience of the tourists visiting the respective countries. These factors are to influence the other end-user segment that is expected to grow with an expected CAGR of over 6%.

Growing concerns of aging infrastructure in North America and Europe are likely to drive the need for elevator services and modernization. However, the maintenance of elevators will largely be influenced by factors including equipment base, regulatory landscape, and service costs across different countries.

Asia-Pacific offers potential growth opportunities, as developing countries such as China and India are projected to be emerging markets, making the Asia-Pacific region the fastest-growing market, expected to cover 47.77% by the end of the year 2026. The regions of Latin America and Middle East & Africa together contributed to less than 15% of the market in 2020.
