Any stagnant market of ascenders and maintenance of elevators. Professionals estimate that 2012 will also be a sluggish year. They argue for the requirement of an elevator for each three-storey building.
An estimated 2,800 the number of units sold in 2011, roughly the same level as in 2010, and operators still expect 2012 to one year without growth. A slowdown, which appears to have started since 2008, since it appears that between 2006 to 2008, increases of three-digit sales were recorded. In recent years, the slowdown in volume is coupled with a lower average price that is currently 180,000 DH when he showed up at 260 000 2010.Date DH in which the elevator market has weathered the slump in residential real estate segment that always draws 80% of sales in the industry through diversity demand (winding gear residences medium to high standard, but also the administrative headquarters, hotels, office towers or large retail stores). Except that since 2011, the slowdown has spread across the slot. The professional segment (hotels etc..) And the public sector are not to be outdone, one affected by the poor form of tourism, the other lying in neutral in terms of demand for ascenders. A situation which has the merit to exacerbate the spirit of competition between the ten operators in the segment (subsidiaries of the four leading global brands and six distributors).
Moreover, as regards the maintenance market, estimated at 25000 National Park lifts for a turnover of 800 million dirhams. It is only weakly developed, quantified 50 artisans across the country are arraigned in crash that elevator. Note however that the monthly rates of maintenance offered by major brands ranging from 800 DH per month for basic maintenance of equipment installed in buildings with a height limited to 20 000 DH per month for the complete formulas for the lifts with heavy traffic (hotels, banks ...).
Thus in the present state of things, most of the revenues of operators in the sector continues to come from sales of new aircraft. A trend that wants contradictory to that of mature markets. In this context, operators who want to continue to build on the sale of new aircraft, campaigning to make the elevators required in any building of three floors instead of four in the regulations.
