The global elevator modernization market size was valued at $7,781.2 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $19,941.6 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.4% from 2021 to 2030. Elevator modernization is the process of upgrading important components of an elevator. Elevator systems consist of a wide range of components that undergo wear and tear, thereby creating a requirement for modernization to maintain efficiency, safety, and performance of the system. In addition, modernization enhances the aesthetic appearance along with the quality of the elevator.

Countries across the globe have experienced rapid urbanization in the past few decades. This significantly increased the population density in urban areas, thereby creating a need for vertical expansion of cities. Thus, increase in number of elevated buildings drives the use of elevators. Elevator systems are composed of various complex components such as control units, machine drives, counter weights, and signaling features. Thus, modernization of such components plays a key role in maintaining the safety, performance, and aesthetic appearance of elevators. Furthermore, modernization helps commercial and industrial building to keep their elevators on par with advancements in elevator technology. However, elevators with worn out components can cause fatal accidents. Thus, local governing authorities are implementing new laws to maintain safety of elevators. In addition, increase in awareness among people regarding elevator safety has positively influenced the market. Furthermore, elevator modernization market growth is driven by advancements in elevator technology.

According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations, the world population living in urban areas is anticipated to reach 68% by 2050, up from 55% in 2018. This will add an estimated 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050. Thus, increase in urban population will increase the use of elevators in commercial buildings and public transport systems, thereby creating a demand for modernization of elevators.  Furthermore, according to Hitachi, Ltd., in 2020, there were approximately 900,000 operational elevators and escalators in Japan.

These included around 35,000 elevators or escalators that were operational for over 25 years and are due for total replacement or extensive modernization. Major players in the industry are launching new products and focusing on business expansion to strengthen their foothold in the market. For instance, in February 2022, Otis India launched Ambiance elevator cab aesthetics range and its Gen2 elevators. In June 2021, TK Elevator acquired Accurate Elevator, which is a Florida-based company that offers new installation, modernization, maintenance, and repair services. These factors drive the growth of elevator modernization market.

Residential held a majority share of the market in 2020

The novel coronavirus rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected repair, maintenance, and modernization of building systems across the globe. Furthermore, the negative economic impact of COVID-19 restricted the use of commercial building and public transport systems, thereby resulting in less use of elevators. However, the number of COVID-19 cases are expected to reduce in the near future as the vaccine for COVID-19 is introduced in the elevator modernization market. This increased the requirement of commercial spaces, thereby boosting the maintenance and modernization industry. This will help the market to recover by the start of 2022. Companies involved in elevator modernization must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working post-pandemic.

Furthermore, technological advancements not only enhance the operations of elevators, but also improve the aesthetic appearance of cabins. In addition, major players in the market strengthen their foothold by providing more modernization components and by focusing on enhancing service and reducing elevator downtime.
