  • Machine Room-less Elevators in the developing economies in Southeast Asia Recorded: Aug 23 2017 51 mins
    Jieqiang Tan, Principal Consultant, Energy & Environment
    Elevator market growth is mainly attributed to the increasing rate of urbanization, which leads to cities becoming denser with highrise buildings. Due to growing limitations of land space, high-rise residential and commercial buildings are high in demand and boost the adoption of elevators. Maintenance will grow along with the growing elevator installed base, and it is a recurring income stream for market participants. More often than not, elevator companies receive low margins from new equipment sales and balance it with the maintenance contracts offered to customers.

    Questions this session will answer:

    o How is the elevator market expanding in the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia?
    o Which are the leading elevator companies in Southeast Asia?
    o What are the key success factors, and how are they different in each Southeast Asian elevator market?
    o Where are the key opportunities and elevator customer segments in these countries?
