In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increasing demand for
smart elevators as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global elevator
and escalator

Increasing demand for smart elevators

The development of smart elevators is a result of the efforts to design
energy-efficient elevators that can also minimize the time taken to
travel between the floors of a building. In smart elevators, when the
user selects the destination floor, the elevator directs him or her to
the elevator, which will take them to the chosen floor with the least
number of stops. The functionalities of a smart elevator go beyond
vertical transportation. Smart elevators may include systems that act as
a facility for security and include controls such as biometrics,
touchscreens, access control, and destination dispatch systems.

The major advantages of smart elevators over traditional elevators
include improved energy efficiency, better control of elevator traffic,
reduced wait times, and integrated access control features. One of the
most important features of smart elevators is the destination dispatch
feature. This feature groups passengers depending on their destination
floors, thereby reducing the wait time and travel time by 50%. Besides,
the destination dispatch feature also reduces congestion in lobbies,
improves passenger comfort, and makes elevators less crowded.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on construction,
“Smart elevators can distinguish employees of a company based on their
IDs and assign them to the correct elevator to reduce travel and wait
times. Due to these advantages, smart elevators have witnessed an
exponential rise in popularity, and their demand is expected to grow
during the forecast period. The rapidly increasing popularity of smart
elevators and their increased demand are expected to be a key growth
factor for the global elevator and escalator market.”
