“The machine room-less (MRL) technology to gain maximum growth during the forecast period”
The machine room-less (MRL) technology is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the next five years. The machine room-less elevator technology is a relatively new technology and is the result of technological advancements. This technology has resulted in a significant reduction in the size of the electric motors that is used with traction equipment. This design is being adopted by buildings across the world and is becoming the standard product. There are several benefits attached to the machine room-less elevators; they save a significant amount of energy (estimated at 70-80%) as compared to hydraulic elevators and eliminate the cost and environmental concerns that are usually associated with a buried hydraulic cylinder filled with hydraulic oil.
