With the acceleration of urbanization in the future, my country's elevator market is huge. The data shows that if the demand for elevators for economical houses is not considered, ordinary residential buildings account for about 62% of the demand for straight elevators downstream. With a structure ratio of about 9:1 between elevators and escalators, the potential market for residential elevators is very large, accounting for about 60% of the total elevator demand.
Although the real estate industry is affected by the macroeconomic regulation and control, the development of the real estate industry is still on the rise, especially residential investment and construction still account for a relatively large proportion. From January to September 2013, the national real estate development investment was 6,112 billion yuan, a year-on-year nominal increase of 19.7% (actual growth of 19.7% after deducting price factors), and the growth rate was 0.4 percentage points higher than that from January to August. Among them, residential investment was 4197.9 billion yuan, an increase of 19.5%, and the growth rate increased by 0.3%, accounting for 68.7% of real estate development investment.
In addition, data shows that from 2013 to 2020, the compound growth rate of urban residential residential demand is 5% to 7%. It can be seen that there is still room for stable growth in elevators in the residential sector.
At the same time, in the elevator configuration standards, each elevator is equipped with more than 5 steel wire ropes, which are mainly used to carry the weight of the elevator itself and the weight of the people and objects carried, and to control the speed of the elevator. Since the service life of general elevators is more than 10 years, and the service life of elevator wire ropes is 6 to 7 years, an elevator must be replaced at least once during the operation period. According to the calculation of the number of elevators currently in use in my country and the number of new elevators added each year, the cumulative demand for steel wire ropes for maintenance and replacement of elevators and new products is 25,000 to 27,000 tons. my country started to install elevators on a large scale in 2001. Taking into account the wire ropes required for new elevators, coupled with the current acceleration of urbanization at home and abroad and the popularity of high-rise buildings, elevator wire ropes will face a very broad market future.
