Which factors reflect on the development of the Lift Industry in SE Europe?
▪ There is a significant growth in the construction of high quality residential and office buildings during the last few years.
▪ A large number of obsolete elevators within existing buildings have to be replaced with new installations. Most of the public buildings and subways do not provide accessible environment for handicapped people and in SE Europe there is an increasing demand for disabled access solutions.
▪ The ageing of the population will increase the use of vertical transport.
▪ The legal framework defined by the EU institutions is vital for the lift industry and has to be implemented by the relevant national authorities.
