Construction companies are focusing on vertical growth to avoid congestion in major cities such as Frankfurt. Moreover, the development of the job market in the country is also driving the growth of the construction market. Elevators are an important aspect of the designing and structuring of these buildings.

“German elevator manufacturers have started preferring gearless elevators. On average, a geared elevator consumes 5%-10% of the total energy supplied to a building,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio Research.

“The capacity of these lifts is less. Moreover, these elevators are more energy efficient as they do not require a motor system that consumes electricity.”
