Smart Elevators: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Smart elevators are growing in popularity worldwide spurred on by benefits such as energy efficiency, reduced waiting time, integrated access control features, and better control of elevator traffic. Key end-use sectors for smart elevators include commercial, residential, healthcare, hospital, retail, and industrial, among others. One of the many smart features of a smart elevator is the clustering of travelers depending on the destination floors, which reduces wait time as well as travel time by as much as 50%. Another smart feature includes detecting employees of all the companies in a particular building based on their IDs and assignment of elevators accordingly.

Strong growth is projected in both the developed and developing countries, driven by the need for efficient people mobility solutions in high rise buildings. Other important factors driving growth in the market include rising prominence of energy efficient building solutions, growing need for advanced and sophisticated security systems, increasing number of super tall buildings worldwide, positive outlook for the global construction industry, rising investments in infrastructure projects worldwide, focus on ‘green infrastructure’, and favorable regulations. An important technological advancement that is making smart elevators even smarter is the destination dispatch technology for lesser congestion in lobbies during peak hours, increased handling capacity of elevators, less crowded elevators, and enhanced passenger comfort levels. Additionally, smart elevators are making use of the cloud to offer not just enhanced comfort and faster mobility to people working and living in high-rise buildings but also uninterrupted service through predictive analysis of maintenance. Other smart elevator advancements poised to benefit market prospects in the near term include remote monitoring system for reducing elevator downtime, touch screen interface in operating panels for smart destination control, touchless summoning, and multi-carriage system for smart time management.
