The increasing demand for skyscrapers in the cities of Asia Pacific is helping to boost the high rise elevator market in the region. Factors such as increasing aging population and demand for accessible housing and infrastructure are contributing to the growth of the elevator market.
By deck type, single deck elevator has the highest growth opportunities as it is cost effective and ideal for moderate traffic. Double deck elevator consists of two cabins attached together. Depending on which floor passengers need to go, they can either take the upper or lower deck if they are intended to go either to even or odd floors.
By destination control, the smart elevator segment is expected to rise with new features, enabling passengers to first select the floor they want and then take them to their destination with the fewest number of stops. These elevators are faster and more energy efficient than conventional elevators.
By building height, mid rise segment constitutes the major share in the global elevator market. However, demand for skyscrapers in Asia Pacific countries is increasing, helping to boost the high rise elevators market in the region.
By end-use, mix block segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period as compared to the residential and commercial segment.
By speed, the segment between 1 to 3 m/s has the major share in the global elevator market. However, due to rapid growth of high rise buildings, between 4 to 6 m/s segment is increasing rapidly.
By application, passenger elevators are the most commonly used. Freight elevators are mostly used in the commercial sector to transport goods from one floor to another.
Geographically, in terms of revenue, Asia Pacific held the largest market share in the elevator market in 2017. After Asia Pacific, Europe has the largest share in the market. The Asia Pacific region is estimated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. China, India, and Japan have the highest growth rate as compared to other countries in the Asia Pacific region. South America is expected to show slow growth as compared to the other regions of the world.
