Analysis of China Permanent Magnet Elevator Motor Market

In recent years, with the acceleration of urbanization and the increase in high-rise buildings, the demand for elevators has continued to grow, directly driving the expansion of the permanent magnet elevator motor market. Data shows that China has become the global production base for permanent magnet motors, and both the output and market size of permanent magnet elevator motors have shown a stable growth trend. It is expected that in the coming years, with continuous technological progress and the expanding market demand, permanent magnet elevator motor market will continue to grow.

The urbanization process in China has propelled the rapid development of the Chinese elevator manufacturing industry. The number of elevators has increased from around 4.26 million units in 2017 to approximately 9.64 million units by 2023, with a compound annual growth rate of 11.38%. The demand for elevators in the Chinese market mainly stems from residential, commercial, and public buildings. The demand for elevators is expected to continue growing, driven by technological advancements and expanding application areas, fostering continuous innovation and development in elevator industry.

Due to the slowdown in the growth rate of China's real estate market in recent years, the development speed of the elevator industry has slowed to some extent. However, with the accelerated urbanization process, the renovation of old residential areas, the increase in urban population, and the increasing efforts in the construction of urban infrastructure such as rail transit, airports, and pedestrian bridges, the growth rate of the elevator industry has gradually increased, and elevator production has also shown a trend of rapid growth. In 2021, China's elevator production was 1.545 million units, and in 2022 and 2023, elevator production remained basically stable at 1.454 million units.
