Market Dynamics- Drivers

Growing construction industry supported by global megatrend of urbanization is expected to drive growth of the global aerial work platform market during the forecast period

Aerial work platform or elevating work platform is a device that is used to provide temporary access to operators or equipment to unreachable areas. Aerial work platforms have wide application in the construction industry and is used for lifting, loading, and transportation. The growing construction industry is expected to be one of the most significant drivers for global aerial work platform market growth. The construction industry has witnessed significant growth in the recent past, especially in emerging economies such as China and India, owing to increasing disposable income, rapid urbanization, and industrialization. As a result, demand for aerial work platforms (AWP) has increased in these countries. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), in China, the rural and urban per capita disposable income reached US$ 4,976.7 in 2029 from US$ 2,107.2 in 2022.

Market Dynamics- Restraints

High initial and maintenance costs is expected to restrain growth of the global aerial work platform market during the forecast period

The major factor restraining growth of the global aerial work platform (AWP) market is high maintenance costs. Aerial work platform (AWP) is used in logistics, transportation, and has other applications, which require high maintenance costs. Thus, it becomes difficult for companies to invest in aerial work platforms due to high capital spending.

Scissor lifts with advanced features are high in price as compared to conventional towers and ladders. Owing to the high initial as well as maintenance costs, there has been a substitution effect which is influencing end users to rent aerial work platform as opposed to making a purchase of the same. Renting equipment instead of owning removes a sizeable burden from a contractor's asset register.

Market Opportunity

Growing adoption of new technology is presenting lucrative growth opportunities to key manufacturers
