Indonesia with over 280 million of populations has the biggest prospects for the home lift, elevator and escalator market in Asia Pacific. The trend of urban residents switching to flats or apartments has also raised market demand. The construction of buildings in the Indonesia New Capital City (Nusantara) is a promising market for this industry. With the increasing number of tall building constructions, it means that there will be more elevators and escalators to be installed as well.

Having a lift at home offers them the freedom and comfortable. Indonesia has become one of the largest home lift markets in the world.
