The trend of developing buildings with sky bridges is gaining traction in the North America elevator and escalator market. Ropeless technology and multidirectional mobility systems are being considered for these buildings, enhancing their structural integrity and ensuring convenient transportation within high-rise buildings.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts a 20% increase in floor area by 2030, predominantly in emerging and developing economies. Canada, in particular, faces the challenge of meeting the growing housing demand within limited, expensive, and developable land. Flat development, even in cities like Calgary and Edmonton, is on the rise to address this demand.

Rapid Housing Initiative and Increasing Construction of Skyscrapers to Hike Elevator Demand

The surge in migration to metropolitan cities in search of economic opportunities has spurred the demand for housing. The construction of various residential developments supports the urbanization trend, driving the elevator demand. The Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) financing, included in Budget 2022, aims to address urgent housing needs and create affordable housing units. The increased construction of skyscrapers and high-rises in the U.S. also contributes to the elevator market’s growth.

Increased Infrastructure Investments and Adoption of Next-Generation Elevator Solutions Directed to Surge in New Installations

Infrastructure investments and the adoption of next-generation elevator solutions are driving the surge in new installations across North America. Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, infrared technology, and robotics are among the primary trends in the hotel industry, boosting elevator demand. Funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP) further support infrastructure development and elevators’ role within it.

Modernizing Through Digitized Solutions Like AGILE, MAX, Along With VR Headsets for Technicians Can Drastically Bring Transformation in Service Industry

Digital technologies like MAX and AGILE DSC are revolutionizing elevator operations and energy efficiency, especially in older structures undergoing modernization. The use of virtual reality (VR) headsets allows technicians to assess elevator problems more efficiently, eliminating the need for physically accessing lift shafts or scaling multiple stories.
