The construction industry has witnessed immense innovation eventually elevating the demand for sustainable aerial work platforms
In recent times, the construction industry has been growing rapidly and shifting towards innovation. But rapid transformation also demands work safety. And, if there is a safest to work at height, it has to be mobile elevating work platforms are commonly known as aerial work platforms. Along with built-in safety systems, aerial work platforms – designed specifically for construction and other general operations, have electrical, hydraulic and mechanical components for elevated worker safety. Also, apart from safety features of aerial work platforms, smooth maneuvering abilities and efficiency also make aerial work platform a favorite among construction companies and workers. In a recent research, the global aerial works platform market is anticipated to grow at a strong robust CAGR of 6% over 2018-2028 and attain a value of over US$ 14.5 billion by 2028 end – owing to the construction industry in developing regions.
Hybrid Scissor Lifts in Aerial Work Platforms Witness Higher Adoption
The hybrid scissor lifts are expected to witness elevated application in the global aerial work platform market owing to its efficiency in performance. Additionally, stringent emission standards, enhanced safety standards, and complexity of diesel engine scissor lifts will drive the growth of hybrid scissor lifts in the aerial work platforms market. Factors including safe and efficient working standards are elevating the use of hybrid scissor lifts.
Construction Companies Opting for Sustainable Aerial Work Platforms Equipment
Many companies are renting AWPs which are needed for more maintenance activities of construction sites such as cleaning up the dust accumulated on the roof of construction sites. For such activities, rent procures large numbers of AWP units every year years. To cater to this growing demand, companies seem to be purchasing sustainable equipment dominated by electric device systems as it is considered to be eco-friendly, have higher efficiency, extended battery life and lowered noise pollution. With increased focus on meeting environmental norms and reducing carbon footprint, more and more companies are turning towards sustainable AWPs in near future.
Telematics to be the Future of Aerial Work Platforms; Further Innovations in Progress
Telematics, though considerably new for aerial work platforms, has been using in other industries extensively. Factors like remote monitoring of machine functions and customer utilization and continuous improvement of reliability for electrical and hydraulic equipment will push for telematics in the aerial work platforms market.
Since technology is ever-evolving, manufacturers are working on machines with enhanced functions that would ease the workload of companies. From low-weight machines to delivering improved safety through innovations, such as crush-protection, innovations are further fueling the aerial work platforms market.
