More and more commercial and residential buildings are utilising building automation systems to control and maintain important services, such as:
Persistence Market Research (PMR) have published a report on the building automation system market, estimating a global expansion at a CAGR of 11.1% alongside a predicted revenue of $141.1Bn throughout the 10 year forecast period, (2016-2026).
Several developed countries, such as Japan, U.S and Europe are beginning to introduce more restricted and revised rules in response to Government initiatives. These have been put in place with the environment in mind, aiming to reduce energy waste and consumption globally. As the global building autonomous system market expands, more advanced technologies are being developed, and will be installed to meet the increasing demand for building autonomous systems.
Market Expansion Drivers
One of the biggest things driving the market expansion is the urgent need for consolidated security solutions in the coming years. Other things driving the market development include:
Despite these market drivers, certain things are restraining the speed at which the market is expanding. Primarily, these include the cost of expensive systems, and general lack of skilled personnel. Nevertheless, adoption of building autonomous systems is becoming more globally widespread.
PMR further focused their market expansion analysis by segment. Many different practices utilised building automation systems, such as commercial, residential and government. Perhaps most significantly, PMR’s analysis predicted that the commercial segment will contribute $63 Bn as well as a CAGR of 10.9%. Other segments, including residential and government are also predicted to grow at a promising rate within the defined time period.
PMR analysed the different systems used within a building automation system, including:
Building Energy Management
Security & Surveillance
Most notably, they estimated an increase in both demand and revenue for the security and surveillance segment; this is due to a global increase in criminal activities.
PMR analysed where building automation systems are solidly implemented, and defined six key regions:
It is therefore predicted that these six regions can expect the most market growth. More specifically, it is estimated that North America will see a rapid growth in demand for building autonomous systems within the specified time frame. The majority of investors in this region are expected to be baited, with the marker for building automation system in North America expected to share $55Bn market value through 2026.
