Aerial Work Platform Market Demand Forecast up to 2030



According to the Market Statsville Group, the global aerial work platform market size is expected to grow from USD 8.5 billion in 2021 to USD 15.4 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2022 to 2030. One of the primary factors driving the aerial work platform market is the rise in the construction industry. The building sector in developing countries such as India, Brazil, and others has a lot of promise in the near future, which pushes the demand for aerial work platforms. Aerial work platforms are also in great demand due to the large number of accidents caused by defective scaffolding erection and the risk of falling. The AWP provides a safe and stable platform for the operator, which decreases site deaths and enhances job quality. Furthermore, strong demand from China and other Asian countries propels the aerial work platform market forward. AWP was first implemented in China in the early 2000s, adoption in the Asia-Pacific region has been much slower. However, China’s rapid infrastructure and industrial development are predicted to enhance demand for AWP, propelling the aerial work platform market forward.

However, Battery technology advancements are projected to bring up new growth potential for the aerial work platform industry. The advent of fully electric AWPs is gaining traction in indoor applications, and the aerial work platform industry is projected to grow in the future.

Global Aerial Work Platform Market Dynamics

DriversReduction in accidents and improved safety

Working on heights is an extremely risky task, especially in outdoor activities such as construction, maintenance, utilities, and others. Previously, these activities were conducted using non-mechanical devices such as ladders, wooden scaffolding, and others. However, with the development in aerial work platforms, elevating personnel has become much easier. AWPs generally offer a stable working platform against the traditional methods. Although the risk of accidents such as electrocuting and tipping is possible on AWPs, operation of the equipment by trained professionals can reduce the risk of accidents significantly. Factors such as operator training, experience, inspection of the equipment, analysis of possible accidents, and others can assist in achieving better safety while using aerial work platforms. Thus, the reduction in accidents and improved safety offered by aerial work platforms over traditional methods drives the market growth of the aerial work platform.

RestraintsHigh price of aerial work platforms

Aerial work platforms are complex work equipment with respect to other means of elevation equipment. Thus, aerial work platforms are more expensive than its alternatives. For instance, the average price for scissor lifts can be $5,000 to $80,000, depending upon the brand, type of engine, lifting weight, lifting weight, and other factors. This restrains its penetration for small- and medium-sized companies, which do not require AWP on daily basis or have lower project costs. Thus, the high price of aerial work platforms hinders the growth of the aerial work platform market.

The boom lifts segment is projected to account for the largest market share, by type

By type, the aerial work platform market is classified into scissor lift, boom lift, vehicle-mounted platform, and others. In 2021, The boom lifts segment was the highest contributor to the market, with 61.0% of share in the global aerial work platform market. A boom lift consists of a bucket or a platform attached to a hydraulic lift system, which is further attached to a grounded base. Boom lifts are available as telescopic boom lifts and articulating boom lifts or knuckle lifts.

There are various advantages of boom lifts over scissor lifts that assist them in gaining a significant share in the aerial work platform market. Boom lifts offer the highest reach than any other aerial work platforms. For instance, the China-based manufacturer, Sinoboom offers the GTZZ46EJ articulating boom lift, which is claimed to be the highest reaching articulating boom lift in the aerial work platform market. It provides a working height of 153 feet and is specially designed for heavy-duty applications in the petrochemical sector.
