Additionally, in line with the UAE Vision 2021, significant investments in Dubai Expo 2020 & approval of other such large-scale projects, including the extension of red & green lines of Dubai metro, expansion of Al Maktoum International Airport, Abu Dhabi Metro, and other residential & commercial projects, shall further boost the installation of new escalators & elevators in the coming years.

Impact of Covid-19 on the UAE Elevator and Escalator Market

  • With the government imposing movement restrictions & the shutdown of public gathering places to contain the spread of the disease owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the UAE Elevator and Escalator Market in 2020 witnessed several adverse effects.
  • These restrictions led to a halt in construction projects and the closure of manufacturing units, especially during the first half of the year, which, in turn, significantly declined the sales of elevators & escalators.
  • Along with this, supply chain disruptions have been another major operational challenge for the elevator & escalator market, which, however, was reduced gradually from the beginning of May last year.
  • Moreover, the partially restricted access to malls & restaurants also negatively influenced the overall market growth amidst the crisis.
  • Nevertheless, the resumption of construction activities and the increasing inflow of tourists in the UAE has augmented new installations of elevators & escalators, coupled with the need for the maintenance of existing ones.
