In the AWP market, electric lifts are expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% from 2019 to 2025. The high demand for electric work platforms is attributed to fuel-saving and low-emission capabilities associated with electric-powered machines. Several initiatives by the global construction industry, government organizations, and regulatory framework for reducing air pollution and carbon emissions from building construction activities are also impacting the MEWP market. As a result, several manufacturers are shifting toward providing electrically-powered platforms to address the demand from application sectors, further expanding the MEWP market. These platforms are also gaining a huge demand across rental applications due to the utilization of used & old machines in Asian countries including Malaysia, India, etc.

Aerial Work Platforms Market, By Platform Height

In the aerial work platforms market, equipment with platform height 10 to 20 meters is expected to reach USD 9 billion by 2025, which is attributed to the increasing requirement for maintenance, glass-gazing, and cleaning work at commercial sites. Several companies have developed application & height-specific machines to address increasing customer demand. These platforms are easily transportable and require less installation time, providing time-saving advantages to operators. Due to increasing requirements in various applications, companies are developing safe and environment-friendly lifts & platforms that offer enhanced stability at heightened operations, further fueling access equipment market growth.

Aerial Work Platforms Industry, By Application

The rental application segment was valued at USD 4 billion and is anticipated to witness growth due to a rapid increase in the demand for rented equipment across the globe. High initial & maintenance costs associated with new platforms are majorly compelling the customers to rent them. Another reason for renting AWPs is to reduce both time & cost related to transportation. These factors allow users to save machine procurement costs and invest in other essential activities. The increasing demand for such products supports the emergence of several rental providers across Asian countries including China, India, Brazil, Mexico, etc.
