The global market for automatic garage door operators can be categorized by product type into screw drive, chain drive, belt drive, and others. In 2022, the screw drive segment dominated the market with a value of approximately USD 923 million. Screw drive-type garage door openers use a threaded steel rod to lift the door. The rod winds or unwinds a cable around a pulley to open or close the door. Despite generating some noise during operation, screw drive openers are quieter than chain drive systems. They offer significant power in a compact device, making them suitable for homeowners with large, heavy, or oversized garage doors.
Automatic garage doors are operated using various sensors, including infrared and photoelectric sensors. These automatic units have applications in luxury residential housing, commercial spaces, and other areas. The demand for these doors is driven by factors such as energy efficiency, ease of operation, security, speed, accuracy, and cable-free operation. In the automatic garage door operator market, key sensor types include infrared and photoelectric sensors. Infrared sensors have low power consumption, a simple design, and useful features, reducing the risk of injury and providing other benefits. As a result, infrared sensors dominate the sensor segment in the automatic garage door operator market.
Home automation has become increasingly popular, simplifying day-to-day life through rapid technological advancements. Almost everything has become automatic and digitalized. The Internet of Things (IoT) allows devices to be connected online and monitored remotely via the internet. As technology develops, automatic garage door operator systems have seen significant growth. The controller types in the global automatic garage door operator market are divided into Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with the Wi-Fi segment holding the larger share. Wi-Fi-based controllers offer advantages in terms of system control and accessibility.
The new construction segment holds the largest share in the automatic garage door operator market by installation type, with a valuation of over USD 1.5 billion in 2022. Many new construction projects worldwide are driving the demand for new garage doors. Innovations in garage door manufacturing and integrated locking systems have led to longer replacement cycles as doors become lighter yet stronger. The recovery from the 2022 Russian invasion and the COVID-19 pandemic has stimulated construction activities in the residential and commercial sectors globally. Emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil are expected to witness significant growth in constructing new buildings. Numerous construction projects in hospitality, healthcare, real estate, and other sectors are anticipated to contribute to market growth.
The global automatic garage door operator market is segmented by end-users into residential and commercial sectors. The residential segment holds a larger share of the industry, driven by population growth and the need for housing facilities.
