Source text - English The elevator industry is in great turmoil. While the domestic market is secure in terms of unit sales, the fall in prices shows no sign of coming to a halt. Likewise, there is a continuing trend toward price erosion in respect of service and maintenance, once a stable source of profits. Moreover, the large manufacturers of general electrical machinery are also experiencing a mounting sense of crisis and have begun to explore potential tie-ups with major companies overseas, as management voice their fears for the continued survival of their enterprises. And the prediction that global reorganization will eventually prevail is coming to the fore: until recently protected by the building regulations of individual countries as well as by cultural differences, the elevator industry too is now facing the inevitable advancement of the “borderless” wave. Here, we report on the current situation of the industry, and the challenges ahead.
