"Catapult Your Business to Fore, Gain Competitive Advantage "
The global industrial mezzanines market size stood at USD 6.59 billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD 9.43 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period.
Technological advancements in industrial mezzanines are a growing trend. The mezzanines are configured such that storage of goods can be done manually or automatically by utilizing automated robots and electric pallet trucks. In the current era, mezzanines are free standing and have an interlocking design that allows the end-user to increase overhead storage space. Moreover, the manufacturers are focused on developing modern storage solutions. It is because the warehouses, distribution centers, retail stores, and processing plants have taller ceilings, which allow more storage of goods. Modular mezzanines are one of those modern solutions. Modular mezzanines create extra space horizontally so that the goods can get easily transported from one end of the warehouse to the other, making operations less complicated. Moreover, modular structures make mezzanine flooring more flexible.

Implementation of Advanced Technologies to Spur Market Growth
Implementation of technologies and integrating industrial mezzanines with different types of material handling systems are trending aspects across the e-commerce, aerospace, and other major industries. With the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology across mezzanine systems, the sorting process has become more synchronized. Moreover, companies across the world are also implementing Internet of Things (IoT) for storage purposes so that the facility storage owners can integrate the industrial mezzanine system with pallet racking systems and conveyor systems. For instance, Noordrek GmbH offers a wide range of solutions for factory equipment and storage systems including, storage mezzanine platforms with spans up to 10 meters, warehouse mezzanine platform RAL 7035, and others.
Moreover, in distribution centers, industrial mezzanines offer various benefits including adaptability with other material handling systems and robust and safe storage options through the adoption of IoT. Therefore, technologically integrated industrial mezzanines are one of the growing market trends.
Growth in E-commerce Industry is Laying Foundation for Future Market Growth
The growth in the e-commerce industry has boosted the nature of online orders and speed with which the order must be processed. Owing to this, mezzanines and its structural parts such as floor support columns and staircases are gaining traction as they are steel structured and offer additional space without changing the building fabrication. Moreover, various types of end-user industries including warehousing and retail are expanding the size of their fulfillment centers by utilizing all the available space within the facility. As a result, e-commerce companies such as Amazon, Flipkart, etc. are opting for warehouses with maximum ceiling height and distribution centers with more than four buildings. This factor boosts the industrial mezzanines market growth, as it offers the scope to increase the storage space.
Therefore, the growth in the e-commerce industry is propelling the market demand of industrial mezzanines.
Lack of Safety Measures to Hinder Market Growth
Mezzanine floor is a vital tool for utilizing the available space within the pre-existing facilities. These floors provide durable alternatives to structural changes by reducing the cost of additional infrastructure. However, there are areas of concern regarding the safety of workers. Manufacturers have been fabricating mezzanines without safety measures such as gatekeeper, handrail, and guardrails. Owing to this, workers are losing their lives while working on these raised platforms. For instance, in 2018-19, in Great Britain, approximately 44,000 injuries occurred at work place owing to the non-existent mezzanine safety equipment. However, there are safety standards that have been set by various governmental bodies including the American National Standard Institute (ANSI), Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and others regarding guardrail systems, handrail systems, and safety gates.
Still, the incidence of injuries while working on elevated workspaces is high owing to the lack of important safety measures that need to be put up by manufacturers.
