Countries that rely on exporting extractives are also likely to be hard-hit by COVID-19, with growth falling by up to seven percentage points in oil-exporting countries and by over eight percentage points in metal exporters. The booming construction industry in the region heralds a good opportunity for companies that manufacture elevator and escalator. As per the finding of the report- Middle East & Africa Elevator & Escalator Market Outlook, 2026 by Bonafide Research, the region held to a share of 10.02% in the global market in the year 2015, valuing to USD 6.84 Billion. The region continues to rely on imported components to meet market demand, with some local lift companies identifying hurdles on the road to developing the manufacturing capacity of domestic small- and medium-sized enterprises. The market is expected to grow at an anticipated rate of over 7%, through the forecasted period.

The increasing number of tourists has been playing a major role in the construction of new infrastructure, with a high share of the elevator market of over 60%, which exhibits a decline in the market share. The upcoming projects, as well as the ongoing projects of infrastructure construction as commercial centers like malls, hotels, etc. and non-commercial residences, are the major driving factor for the market. This had allowed the escalator market to reach a market value of USD 2.28 Billion in the year 2020. However, through the forecasted period, the moving walkway segment is expected to show the highest CAGR of over 8%.

The new installation segment, valued at USD 3.15 Billion in 2015, is the key revenue generator in the overall Middle East & Africa elevators and escalators market as urbanization and infrastructural development continue to play an important role in the region. Major hotel chains are expanding their presence across several countries and large-scale government infrastructure development projects, such as airport expansions, metro expansions, and development of other social infrastructure, are strengthening the maintenance & repair segment to a share of 3.84% in 2020.

Demand for components is expected to keep rising in Africa as widening regional trade and economic integration, rapid urbanization and a growing middle class drives the expansion of the residential end user segment, reaching over USD 4 Billion in the year 2020. Fuelled by greater investment in commercial, residential, and hotel development, new installations, along with related maintenance, are expected to grow, increasing the region's appetite for imported lift components. The residential end user segment is expected to witness a growth of over 6.28% CAGR in the period 2021-26, reportedly the lowest among the end user segment.

By value, the Middle East & Africa region is dominated by Saudi Arabia, which held a share of 15.58% in 2015.
