The passenger elevator market is anticipated to show steady growth during the forecast period.

A passenger elevator is a vertical transportation system designed to transport people between floors or levels of a building. It is widely used in residential buildings, offices, hotels, shopping malls, and other multi-story structures. Passenger elevators feature a vertically moving cabin or car guided by rails or a shaft. They are designed to keep passengers safe and comfortable during transit, with features such as doors, control panels, and safety mechanisms. The establishment of new shopping malls, luxury hotels, and technological advancements in elevators propelled the passenger elevator market growth.

Market Drivers

  • The establishment of new shopping malls fuelled the passenger elevator market growth.

Due to the crowded environment in the mall, essential solutions such as passenger elevators are required as they comfortably accommodate a large number of users, including shoppers, visitors, and mall employees. These elevators are critical for providing convenient and efficient vertical mobility, allowing people to navigate the mall's various levels comfortably. Therefore, the establishment of new shopping malls contributed to the passenger elevator growth. For instance, in July 2022, LuLu Group opened the largest LuLu Mall in Lucknow, India, with an investment of Rs. 2,000 crores and 2.2 million square feet, providing an international shopping experience.

  • A new commercial establishment bolsters the passenger elevator market growth.

Passenger elevators in commercial places such as hotels serve a crucial role in providing convenient vertical transportation for guests. These elevators are designed to enhance the overall guest experience and offer various benefits. Hotels frequently have multiple floors, and passenger elevators make it easy for guests to easily navigate between levels without putting in exhausting physical effort. Investments in such establishments have positively impacted the market growth. For instance, in December 2023, Accor announced that it would open an innovative set of new hotels in 2024 which includes Fairmont Golden Prague, Fairmont the Breakers Long Beach, and Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa.

  • Technology advancement in elevators propelled the passenger elevator market growth.

Elevator systems are used to employ mechanical controls, however, the adoption of new technologies such as digital connectivity, and automated solutions, has made elevators smarter and more efficient. These control systems integrate a variety of sensors, algorithms, and automated functions, allowing elevators to analyze traffic patterns and optimize operations as well as adjust elevator speed, reduce wait times, and intelligently assign elevator cars to different floors, resulting in a better passenger experience and greater efficiency. For instance, in March 2021, KONE Elevator India, a leading elevator and escalator manufacturer announced the launch of the world's first, groundbreaking class of digitally connected KONE DX Class Elevators.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow significantly.

Asia Pacific is expected to account for a significant share of the passenger elevator market due to the booming commercial establishment in the region. For instance, in September 2023, Lulu Group International opened its first largest Lulu Mall in Telangana with a Rs. 300 crore investment, providing Telangana residents with an international shopping experience. Additionally, in December 2023, Accor announced that it would open new luxury hotels in India and China in mid-2024 namely, Raffles Jaipur and Sofitel Shanghai North Bund. Moreover, in September 2022, Marriott International announced the expansion of its Asia Pacific luxury hotel portfolio with 14 additional properties.

Market Restraints

  • High maintenance costs will restrain the passenger elevator market growth.

Passenger elevators are equipped with complex mechanical systems and require regular maintenance to ensure safe and efficient operation. This maintenance includes component inspections, servicing, repair, and replacement which increases the maintenance cost. This may limit their adoption and affect the market growth.
