Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Scissor Lift Market size is expected to cross USD 6 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of scissor lift was around USD 3 Billion. An increasing number of internet consumers and an increased number of e-commerce platforms can be considered the reason for market growth. In turn, as a result of the expansion of e-commerce, demand for scissor lifts to be used in warehouses is also likely to increase due to the increasing number of logistics companies, courier services, and internet transport marketplaces. In 2025 it is estimated that there will be about three billion online shoppers.

Other factors that are said to be a factor leading to the growth of the scissor lift market include increased use among construction workers. Bridges and massive buildings have made the need for hydraulic systems even more pressing. A seasonally adjusted annual rate of USD 1,825 billion is anticipated for construction spending in January 2023 in the United States, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Scissor Lift Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • New Scissor Lift Innovation- They have been able to move upwards by over 1.5 degrees due to the advent of a variable angle technology in their scissor lifts. Variable lifts allow operators to have more flexibility at the operation site because they are capable of raising scissor lifts with tilt technology on slide slopes as high as 3 degrees.
  • Increasing Use of Automatic Machinery- A number of promising market opportunities are expected to arise as a result of the increasing popularity and adoption of warehouse automation coupled with robotic technology. There are now 2.7 million industrial robots operating in businesses all over the world, an increase of 12% compared to last year, thanks to the latest World Robotics 2020 study published by the International Federation of Robotic Industries. In total, approximately 373,000 units have been delivered worldwide as of 2019.
  • Rise in Retail and Manufacturing Facilities- Scissor lifts are used in all industrial sectors to perform a variety of tasks, such as variable height working stations, machine feeds, and outside feeding or both internal and external level fluctuations. According to estimates, by 2019 there will be 10 million factories in the world.


  • Requirement for Routine Maintenance- Maintenance and nearly daily checks are required on scissor lifts. Ensuring that the machinery is operated in an orderly way and ensuring workers' safety are of paramount importance. By giving workers training in operation, and inspecting machines before each use, it is possible for companies to limit the risk of accidents. Market growth is likely to be hampered by the costs of training staff and daily maintenance.
  •  High Scissor Lift Investment Cost
  • Tough Regulations for New Product Development

Scissor Lift Segmentation

Industry (Warehouse, Manufacturing, Construction)

The construction segment is estimated to hold 38% share of the global scissor lift market in the year 2035. The increasing construction of high-rise buildings is also a factor contributing to this segment's growth. A scissor lift, which provides a safe, solid barrier and a rising platform, allows personnel to carry out precise operations at high altitudes, from close inspections to cable connections. In India, Mumbai is the country's most densely populated city with nearly 200 skyscrapers and close to 12,000 buildings in high-rise construction.

Product Type (Hydraulic, Mechanical, Pneumatic)

The hydraulic segment in the scissor lift market is expected to hold 45% of the revenue share in the year 2035. A hydraulic scissor lift is a convenient solution if anyone needs to lift something heavy, as it is reasonably simple to use and doesn’t require much training from users. It can be easily used in factories and warehouses, without any additional expenditure on the training of the workers.
