Elevators and Escalators Market Scenario

The Elevators and Escalators industry is closely linked to the construction industry. The slightest movement in the construction industry (positive or negative) have a direct impact on the E&E market. The current COVID-19 pandemic initially affected the Asia-Pacific construction industry, the impact of which later spread to all regions of the world. The pandemic headed to the temporary halt of production plants in many countries, as well as the closure of construction sites.

Long-term restrictions on people's freedom of movement made it difficult to finish the contracts for new projects and to continue work on existing orders. This particularly impacted the new installation and modernization businesses unit of elevator manufacturers. Though E&E service business continued to fetch business for companies even in this unfavorable environment and is registering growth.
Prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) it had been predicted that the Elevator market will register a 1.1% CAGR in terms of revenue, the global market size will reach USD 32870 million by 2025, from USD 31410 million in 2019. But this scenario has been changed after the COVID. (SourceGlobal Elevator Market Growth 2020-2025)


Global Construction Industry Scenario

Prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), it had been predicted by analysts that there would be an acceleration in the pace of growth in the global construction industry, to 3.1% from 2.6% in 2019. However, given the severe disruption in China and other leading economies worldwide following the outbreak, the forecast for growth in 2020 has now been revised down to 0.5%. The current forecast assumes that the outbreak is contained across all major markets by the end of the second quarter, following which, conditions would allow for a return to normalcy in terms of economic activity and freedom of movement in the second half of the year. However, there will be a lingering and potentially heavy impact on private investment owing to the financial toll that inflicted upon businesses and investors across a wide range of sectors.

The construction work on major commercial projects in key countries has been greatly affected. The disruption caused by the pandemic is likely to be prolonged in the leisure and hospitality buildings sector, reflecting the likely downturn in both domestic and foreign tourism, which could reduce investment in new hotel projects. The residential sector is facing a high risk of a sharp downturn with major developers recording sharp drops in new sales. (SourceGlobal Construction Outlook to 2024 (COVID-19 Impact)

Especially in China, underlying drivers of growth include ongoing urbanization and the government’s efforts to renovate aging urban residential buildings, years of high levels of investment in real estate have resulted in oversupply, undermining the demand for new space. In January-March 2020, real estate investment in residential buildings had dropped by 7.2% year on year, with the sharpest drop being recorded in the central region, at -16.9%. (SourceConstruction in China - Forecast Update)

4. KONE Corporation

KONE Corporation’s sales of the first quarter of 2020, was impacted due to COVID-19. The Company's revenue got hit because of China, India, and South Europe's wide-ranging restrictions.

5. Thyssenkrupp AG

Thyssenkrupp AG’s performance in the 1st half of the current fiscal year 2019-2020 was largely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. In order to mitigate the cash crunch of the company has sold its crown jewel, the elevator business, and started implementing the steel strategy. The sold elevator business recorded growth in both order intake (2%) and sales (3%) in the 1st half resulting mainly from new installations and service business in the USA. The 2nd quarter saw a decline in both key figures in China and in sales in Europe, also as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The elevator division was sold in February to a consortium of Advent, Cinven, and Germany's RAG foundation for 17.2 billion euros in order to ease financial pressure on the conglomerate which has struggled for years after a downturn in steel and a series of failed investments.  (Source: Company Presentation).

Taking cues from the trend, Fujitec has launched a model with an optional add-on contactless panel feature that uses infrared sensors to select a destination floor based on the position of the hand on the dashboard. The model was intended for hospitals, pharmaceuticals, manufacturers, and food companies.
