U.S. Industrial ceiling fan market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The industrial, logistical, and warehousing sectors in the U.S. are currently facing an unparalleled surge in demand. Many companies are expanding their warehouse and distribution capacities to safeguard their inventories, enhance the resilience of their supply chains, and manage the increasing volume of online retail transactions. Consequently, this trend has led to historically unprecedented levels of low vacancy rates, remarkable growth in rental prices, and strong momentum in leasing operations. These factors combined have contributed to substantial nationwide development within this sector boosting the demand for the industrial ceiling fans in the U.S.

Companies aiming to increase their presence in the U.S. logistics sector are on the rise. Based on the 2022 U.S. Industrial & Logistics Occupier Survey conducted by CBRE Group, Inc. of 100 major industrial occupiers throughout the U.S., it was found that 64% of the surveyed participants have intentions to expand their logistics operations in the U.S. Among these, 47% have ambitious plans for an expansion exceeding 10%, while 29% are considering maintaining their current scale.
