Report Outlook

The global Elevator Control System market was valued at USD 8362.37 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.00% during the forecast period. Elevators were previously controlled by control panels comprised of electromechanical switching components (relays, contactors). The wiring schematics, or electrical connections, of these components, are in the form of a logic circuit. With the emergence of electronics and IoT (Internet of Things) technology, it is increasingly employed in elevator control systems. Implementing IoT architecture and collecting diagnostic data may enhance elevator servicing and maintenance operations.

Another example of the use of AI in elevator control systems is traffic management. Elevator systems can have sensors that gather data on traffic patterns, usage rates, and wait times. AI algorithms can analyze this data to optimize elevator operations and reduce passenger wait times. For example, AI can adjust elevator speeds and routing dynamically to reduce peak-hour wait times.

Relay-based control systems are the oldest type of elevator control system and use electromechanical relays to control the movement of the elevator. These systems are reliable but limited in terms of functionality and flexibility. Microprocessor-based control systems, on the other hand, use microprocessors and software to control elevator movements. These systems offer more advanced features, such as destination control, group control, and traffic management algorithms, which can help to reduce waiting times and improve the efficiency of elevator operations. Networked control systems are the most advanced type of elevator control system and are typically used in high-rise buildings with multiple elevators. These systems use a network of sensors and controllers to manage elevator movements in real-time, providing the most efficient and responsive elevator service.

With IoT integration, elevators can have sensors that gather traffic patterns, usage rates, and energy consumption data. This information can be analyzed using AI algorithms to optimize elevator operations and reduce energy consumption. By leveraging IoT technology, elevator manufacturers and service providers can offer new features and services to their customers, such as remote monitoring and maintenance, mobile apps for elevator access and control, and real-time notifications of elevator status and availability. Moreover, adopting IoT-enabled elevators can support global government initiatives and energy efficiency and sustainability programs. IoT-enabled elevators can contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation system by reducing energy consumption and emissions.

Due to COVID-19, Germany’s economy contracted by 4.9% in 2020. The construction industry was estimated to have a significantly lower impact (of COVID-19 and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war) due to government initiatives and the expected demand for residential buildings over the next few years. On August 2020, China launched the ‘New Infrastructure’ campaign to balance the economic impact of COVID-19 and increase sustainable growth. The campaign focuses on seven key areas of the construction sector. This will ultimately support the market of elevator control systems in the long run.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The need for smart and efficient technologies is becoming increasingly important in the context of urbanization and its associated challenges and opportunities. Adopting these technologies can help address critical issues such as sustainability, affordability, and livability in cities and urban areas. People are migrating from rural to urban regions at an increasing rate across the region.

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) predicts a rise in urban population in India and China. Between 2018 and 2050, India is expected to contribute for 35% of the global urban population increase. India and China will have 416 million, 255 million, and 189 million urban people throughout this era. Migration from rural to urban areas has prompted governments in both emerging and established countries to invest in new infrastructure projects. As a result, increased urbanization will drive up demand for IoT in elevators in the future years.

Weight sensing is expected to witness the fastest growth over the projected period.

The Elevator Control System Market is anticipated to experience rapid growth, with weight-sensing technology leading the way. Weight sensing is poised to be the fastest-growing segment of the market. This technology enables precise monitoring of the weight and occupancy of elevators, ensuring optimal performance, efficiency, and passenger safety. Implementing weight sensing systems allows for real-time adjustments in elevator operation, such as load balancing and accurate floor leveling. With increasing demands for smarter and more efficient elevator systems, the adoption of weight-sensing technology is expected to surge, contributing significantly to the overall growth of the Elevator Control System Market.

The selective Collective Operation system accounted for the largest market share in 2022

In 2022, the selective Collective Operation system emerged as the dominant player in the Elevator Control System Market, capturing the largest market share. This system offers advanced features and benefits, making it highly sought after in the industry. Selective Collective Operation optimizes elevator operation by grouping passengers with similar destinations, reducing travel time, and improving energy efficiency. It intelligently manages elevator assignments and minimizes waiting time for passengers. With its ability to handle complex traffic patterns and provide a seamless elevator experience, the selective Collective Operation system has gained widespread adoption and contributed significantly to the market's growth and success in 2022.
