The most widely modernized component in the elevator modernization are the controllers, and due to this, the segment contributed the maximum market share of 36.6% in 2016. Although, signaling fixtures is projected to surge at the fastest pace of 5.1%. This is due to the fact that, controllers act as a brain of the elevator and are responsible for the speed, levelling and the smooth functioning of the elevator, and signaling fixtures are widely used for signaling the direction and level of the elevator and are subjected to wear and tear at a faster rate. Owing to these factors, the market for controllers and signaling fixtures is anticipated to surge during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025, at a significant rate.
In our study, we have segmented the elevator modernization market by type, component and end-user. The type segment of elevator modernization market includes traction and hydraulic type elevators.
