Sales of revolving doors are expected to hit $1.8 billion globally by 2028.
In response to rising construction activity, climate crisis, energy efficiency needs and integrated security developments, the adoption of revolving doors is expected to rise this decade, according to new research from Research and Markets.
The reports say more construction of high-tech airports, cinema halls, grand hotels and shopping malls will also influence the market.
Australia and New Zealand are tipped to join the trend. “A rise in spending across APAC (Asia-Pacific) countries for maintaining security in office premises across the commercial, industrial and government sectors is driving the adoption of advanced revolving doors,” says the report.
Data centres, too, are expected to stimulate growth. “North America led the revolving doors market in 2020,
majorly due to the presence of a large number of data centres,” says the report. Demand for data centres will increase; Business Wire expects that market, valued at US$20 billion last year, to hit US$47 billion by 2027.
“Architectural revolving doors’ robust and weathertight construction – plus their ‘always open, always closed’ operating principle – means they respond naturally to the wild weather challenges of climate change. And they are also naturally energy-efficient, retaining expensive cooled or heated air, which is important when HVAC costs comprise a major part of a typical commercial, industrial and social infrastructure building’s operating costs,” says Michael Fisher, Boon Edam Australia’s managing director.
