The global industrial mezzanines market size was USD 7.08 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with industrial mezzanines witnessing a positive impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of 3.0% in 2020 compared to the average year-on-year growth rate during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 7.32 billion in 2021 to USD 10.14 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 4.8% during the 2021-2028 period. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The industrial mezzanine is an elevated floor storage platform that is installed between the floor and ceiling. It is specifically utilized to maximize the storage space and additional office space above or below the existing structure. In the current era, these storage systems solutions are freestanding and have an interlocking design that allows the end-user to increase overhead storage space with cost-effective investments.

Technological advancements in the industrial mezzanine are a growing market trend. The mezzanines are configured such that storage of goods is done manually or automatically by utilizing automated robots and electric pallet trucks. Additionally, the manufacturers are focused on developing modernized storage solutions. The warehouses, distribution centers, retail stores, and processing plants have maximum ceiling height that allows more storage of goods. Moreover, modular mezzanines are one of the newer concepts. These mezzanines create an extra space horizontally so that the goods can easily be transported from one end of the warehouse to others to make the operational process less complicated.

COVID-19 Impact: Fast Growing E-commerce Industry to Boost Industrial Mezzanine Installation

The COVID-19 pandemic situation is rapidly evolving and impacting the global supply chains. This, in turn, has paralyzed economic activities across the globe. However, it has been projected that the global market has observed a moderate downfall in the year 2020 and will exhibit positive growth in the future ahead. The moderate downfall was attributed to the falling steel industry across the U.S. and European countries that has challenged the transportation of industrial production across the globe. Manufacturers are, therefore, left with a reduced workforce that rightly hampered the market in the year 2020.

However, the ever-growing e-commerce industry has generated the quick installation of mezzanines to store products across warehouses, retail stores, and other applications. Countries like the U.K., India, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, South Africa, and others are witnessing dynamic enhancement in the E-commerce landscape that increased the installation of free-standing and structural mezzanines across the applications. Additionally, various governmental bodies such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and others have defined various laws for safety standards that deal with the safety of workers while working on raised platforms.

Therefore, all these measures taken by governmental bodies and manufacturers worldwide are remarking favorably on the strong growth of the market in the future ahead.

Implementation of Advanced Technologies to Spur Market Growth

Implementing technologies and integrating industrial mezzanines with different types of material handling systems is a trending aspect across e-commerce, aerospace, and other major industries. With the adoption of artificial intelligence technology across mezzanine systems, the sorting process has become synchronized. Additionally, companies are implementing the IoT in storage so that the facility storage owners can integrate the product system with a pallet racking system and conveyor systems.

For instance, stow International offers product picking applications in mezzanine flooring to support outfeed conveyors for an automated tracking system. Moreover, they offer benefits in distribution centers, including adaptability with other material handling systems, robust and safe storage options through the adoption of internet of things (IoT) in the storage of goods. Therefore, technologically integrated products are a growing trend in the global market.


Growth in E-commerce Industry to Propel Market Growth

The rapid growth in the e-commerce industry has enlightened the nature of online orders and how the order must be processed. Owing to this, mezzanines and their structural parts such as floor support columns and staircase are gaining traction, as it is steel structured and offers additional space without changing the building fabrication. Additionally, warehouse, retail stores, and others expand the size of their fulfillment centers by utilizing all the available space within the facility.

E-commerce companies opt for warehouses with maximum ceiling height and distribution centers with more than four buildings. For instance, The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) stated that Alibaba, a China-based E-commerce company, has gross merchandise value (GMV) of USD 866.00 billion in 2018, almost 3.5 times higher than Amazon’s GMV, i.e., USD 277.00 billion, the U.S. based e-commerce company. Thus, the growth in the e-commerce industry is expected to favor the global industrial mezzanines market growth during the forecast period.


Lack of Importance of Safety Measurements to Hinder Market Growth

A mezzanine floor is a vital tool for utilizing the available space within the pre-existing facilities. However, there are areas of concern regarding the safety of workers. The manufacturers are fabricating mezzanines without safety measurements including, gatekeeper, handrail, guardrails, and staircase. Owing to this, the workers are losing their lives while working on the raised platforms. For instance, the UK Government's Health and Safety Executive (HSE) stated that, in 2018-19, in Great Britain, nearly 44,000 injuries occurred at the workplace, owing to the non-existence of mezzanine safety equipment. There are safety standards fixed by various governmental bodies regarding guardrail systems, handrail systems, and safety gates. Still, the incidences of injuries occur while working in an elevated workspace. This is owing to the lack of importance of safety measurements amongst the manufacturers and the workers.
