MARKET OVERVIEW

The Europe elevator and escalator market by new installations accounted for 155.6 thousand units in 2023 and is expected to reach 205.9 thousand units by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 4.78% during the forecast period. Rapid urbanization, high investment in airport expansion & railway projects, and focus on energy-efficient renovations across Europe will propel the demand for elevators & escalators during the forecast period. For instance, the U.K. government is expected to invest USD 4.3 billion in constructing 40 hospitals by 2030. The government is implementing new guidelines that will help standardize the design for new hospitals and use modular construction methods to accelerate the building program. The government also announced USD 1 billion to upgrade its facilities in the existing 20 hospitals. Such investments are projected to support Europe elevator and escalator market growth. Also, Italy will likely invest USD 7.8 billion to modernize and increase capacity at its docks until 2026. The funding is mostly focused on increasing the size of ships that Italy’s main container ports can handle through dredging, new breakwaters, and improved connections to road and rail links.
