Statistics and data in the elevator industry: a view of 2022 to 2023

The elevator industry has always played a crucial role in the construction industry and vertical mobility. During the period from 2022 to 2023, this sector has continued to evolve, facing unique challenges and benefiting from new and emerging technologies. In this article, we will examine some of the most significant statistics and data related to the elevator industry during this period.

  1. The numbers of the Elevator and Escalator industry in 2022 (source ANIE AssoAscensori) indicate:
  • 2,197 million euros domestic market
  • 2,665 million euros in total turnover
  • 1,009 million euros of exports
  • 541 million euros of imports
  • 468 million euros of trade balance surplus
1. Market Growth:

One of the highlights in the elevator industry from 2022 to 2023 was the steady growth of the global market. With urbanization steadily increasing in many parts of the world and the need to optimize space in buildings, demand for elevators and lifts remained robust. According to data collected, the global elevator market has grown at an average annual rate of 5-7%.

Italy is the second largest country in the world in terms of elevators, with nearly 1,000,000 installations making nearly one hundred million rides every day. More than 70 percent of the elevators in service in our country, however, have been in operation for more than twenty years and nearly 50 percent for more than thirty years.

2. Innovative Technologies:

During this period, the elevator industry has enthusiastically embraced innovative technologies. Smart elevators, equipped with artificial intelligence systems and advanced sensors, have become increasingly common. These elevators can optimize routes, improve energy efficiency, and provide greater safety for users.

3. Sustainability and Energy Efficiency:

Another important trend has been the emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency. Energy-efficient elevators have become the norm, helping to reduce the environmental impact of buildings. Data show that, compared to 2020, the use of energy-efficient elevators increased by 20 percent in 2023.

4. Growing Urbanization:

With urbanization growing steadily, the industry has faced the challenge of moving more and more people within cities. 2022-2023 saw increased adoption of high-capacity elevators and vertical mobility solutions to handle this growing demand.

In conclusion, the elevator industry experienced a significant period of growth and transformation from 2022 to 2023. The adoption of innovative technologies, a focus on sustainability, and the intelligent use of data have helped improve the efficiency and safety of elevators. As urbanization continues to increase and building needs evolve, it is likely that the industry will continue to innovate and adapt to meet future challenges.
