  • A few notable trends may include accelerating development of smart cities, upsurge in tourism activities, surging penetration of novel technologies, escalating demand for energy efficient elevators and verticalization of cities.\nThe global E&E market is categorized on the basis of service and technology.
  • According to the type of service, the market can be split into maintenance, new installation/equipment and modernization.
  • Whereas, the global E&E market can be bifurcated into machine room-less, hydraulic and traction, in terms of technology.\nThe fastest growing regional market was Asia Pacific which is expected to dominate the market in future accruing to expansion in the construction of buildings across the residential and non-residential sectors, increasing shift towards eco-efficiency, flexible design, and safety, rising public expenditure on infrastructural development in developing countries such as Indonesia, India, China, and Philippines, surging disposable income and growing urbanization.\nFurther, disruption in the supply chain of raw materials and halted construction activities, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulted in the downfall in demand for elevators and escalators, which eventually had a negative impact on its market growth globally.\n'
