February 25, 2016

Slumping oil prices, weakening economy and expected reduction in investments will stimulate Saudi Arabia's elevator & escalator market to grow at a CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) of 1.9 per cent during 2016-22, a report said.

Though Saudi Arabia recorded substantial demand for elevators & escalators in last five years, the market growth is expected to decline owing to falling oil prices, explained the report entitled "Saudi Arabia Elevator & Escalator Market (2016-2022)" from 6Wresearch, a real time market and competitive intelligence provider.

With declining oil prices, infrastructure development activities are anticipated to be affected for the next two years. However, the market would regain momentum due to appreciating oil prices, rise in infrastructure spending and recovery of the economy, the report said.

Rajat Kharbanda, senior consultant, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, said: "Commercial vertical which comprises government & transportation, hospitality, commercial offices and retail segments has generated majority of the market revenues in the overall market. Also, increasing construction in the residential vertical would further stimulate the growth of the market."

"Moreover, increasing number of foreign tourists has driven the construction of new hotels, especially in the western region, which is resulting into the increase in deployment of elevators in the country," Kharbanda added.

Shefali Goel, research analyst, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, said: "In elevator & escalator market, new installation segment has dominated the market followed by maintenance and modernization. The increasing construction projects and growing demand in the residential vertical would upshot the revenues of new installation segment."

"Central and western regions are the key revenue generating regions in the elevator & escalator market. Increasing investments, rise in infrastructure, growing IT sector, and establishment of several skyscrapers in these regions have contributed for their growth. Riyadh, Jeddah, Makkah and Madinah have led for the growth of these regions," Goel concluded.
