The scale of China's aerial work platforms is relatively small. Compared with developed countries in Europe and America, large-scale development of aerial work platforms began in the 1970s. China's aerial work platforms started late, and foreign products were introduced for research and development and imitation from the end of the last century. Due to the gap between the quantity of possession and the penetration rate, the market size of China's aerial work platform is only about 2 billion yuan, far less than the scale of the global aerial work platform  market of 50 billion yuan.

In recent years,XCMG, Liugong, ZOOMLION and other construction machinery manufacturing crocodiles have entered the aerial work platform market, which is fast-paced, rapid development, and frequent action.

According to the "China Aerial Work Equipment Leasing Industry Research and Investment Prospect Report (2019 Edition)" published by Tate Information Consulting, the average annual growth rate of domestic aerial work platform sales is about 40% in 2013-2017, and the growth rate in 2017 is 50%.

In the international market, the application of aerial work platforms in the non-construction field has reached 30-40%, and it has been widely used in warehousing, shopping malls, outdoor cleaning and other fields. However, at present, China's leasing industry covers the construction sector, with 94.6% of leasing companies covering the plant construction sector, but only 18% of leasing companies cover the outdoor cleaning sector. The number of leasing companies is an inevitable trend in the development of the industrial chain.
