For instance, in February 2023, MEC Aerial Work Platforms introduced an all-electric scissor lift named ‘the NANO10-XD’, which has a compact design & eliminates the oil leak risk for sensitive applications. It also delivers a battery duty cycle with the standard Li-ion batteries, which need less charge time & has extra uptime.

Moreover, autonomous aerial work platforms are now equipped with advanced sensors, cameras, and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that allow them to operate without human intervention, which enables these platforms to be capable of performing tasks such as inspections, maintenance, and repairs in hazardous or hard-to-reach areas, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. However, continuous variation in raw materials like metals, metal alloys, and stainless steels, which are crucial materials used by producers across the globe, along with the rising preference of customers towards cost-effective alternatives like scaffolding and ladders, is restraining the market growth.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the aerial work platforms market. The rapid spread of the deadly coronavirus across the globe has resulted in the complete or partial closures of construction activities and also halted the global supply chains due to imposed lockdowns and other restrictions by government authorities. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the market is expected to recover in the coming years as economies reopen and infrastructure development activities resume.

Electric segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The electric segment garnered a significant share in 2022, mainly attributable to its wide range of beneficial features and characteristics, including high capacity, zero emissions, and lower turning radius. These engines especially come in compact designs that make them highly suitable for numerous warehousing applications with narrow aisles and confined spaces, thereby propelling the segment market growth.

The engine-powered segment is anticipated to gain a significant growth rate over the coming years, which is mainly driven by a continuous rise in the need and demand for diesel engine-powered lifts, especially for outdoor applications and are designed to sustain worst-case loading applications, that are more construction-oriented and have high load carrying capacity compared to the electric drives.

Boom lifts segment held the significant market share in 2022

The boom lifts segment held a significant market share in revenue in 2022, mainly due to its superior load capacity and ability to reach more heights with better stability easily. It also provides greater flexibility compared to other products available in the market. The sales of boom lifts have drastically increased over the last few years, as these lifts are being widely used for general construction and industrial applications, creating lucrative opportunities for manufacturers.

The scissor lifts segment is anticipated to grow steadily over the projected period due to its wide range of features, including remote-operated, motorized lifts, and helps reduce the number of accidents while offering multiple height adjustment options. Moreover, the drastic increase in indoor maintenance or building activities, mainly in developing economies like India, China, and Indonesia, and the increasing popularity of electric scissor lifts emitting lesser noise during work likely boosts segment growth.

Transportation & logistics segment is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

The transportation & logistics segment is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR during the anticipated period, which can be largely attributed to exponential growth in the number of supermarkets across both developed and developing economies and the emergence of several online platforms boosting the need for efficient and effective logistics and warehousing centers globally. Hence, growth in the global e-commerce industry and the rapid rate of globalization that has expanded trade activities will spur the demand and development of the market.

North America region dominated the global market in 2022

North America dominated the global market for aerial work platforms in 2022 and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth of the regional market can be mainly accelerated by rapidly increasing investments in developing several commercial and residential complexes, along with the constant emergence of the IT and telecom sector, which supports the usage of these platforms for maintenance and repair activities at great heights. Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has amended a wide range of requirements for implementing aerial work platforms. Thus, these implementations are likely to fuel the market in the region.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to be the fastest growing region with a significant growth rate over the study period, owing to increasing government investments regarding infrastructure development and growing penetration for affordable residences among the population coupled with the rapid evolution across logistics, warehousing, and retail sector in terms of automation.
