Market Report Description

The Global Smart Buildings Market size is expected to reach $131.5 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 10.6% CAGR during the forecast period.

A smart building is a concept where the infrastructure, security systems, lighting, ventilation, heating, and air conditioning systems, among several other things, are all automated. A smart building employs technology to make it more efficient, sustainable, safe, and cost-effective. The IoT and connected sensor environment is growing, and smart building systems are crucial part of it.

Large housing complex are driving substantial implementations of the solution and services within residential area. Commercial architecture includes retail spaces, office spaces, and other commercial complexes, along with government structures. Moreover, industrial buildings are included as a part of commercial division.

The growing demand for lower energy consumption and the massive growth of energy usage led to the rising number of enterprise buildings that has forced the development of innovative techniques to reduce and optimize building energy usage. Because of the growing demand in energy conservation and savings, building energy management systems (BEMS) have grown in popularity. The energy needs of a building can be monitored and controlled using a building energy management system.

Smaller buildings require a system that can provide data on historical billing analysis, incentive availability, and educational, behavioral, and retrofit suggestions, whereas larger buildings require predictive analytics, advanced building, continuous optimization and building optimization, autoDR, demand response, automated building control, and enterprise integration. BEMS is crucial to addressing these requirements.

BEMS solutions for moderate buildings are also obtainable from companies. Provide Trouble ticket administration, retro and ongoing commissioning, Energy monitoring, NOC availability, maintenance, retrofit programmer proposals and AMI data analysis. Moreover, government initiatives such as the European Union's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the United States' Commercial Building Initiative (CBI) are urging governments and companies to increase their efforts to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions at the community level.

Smart Buildings Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2017-2027

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The reopening of corporate buildings for in-office work following the pandemic is projected to increase the demand for smart technology that ensures a safe atmosphere. After a lockdown, commercial office facility managers and corporate tenants should provide a safe workplace. As a result, smart technologies are anticipated to be used to handle cleanings and sanitizing, proper workplace ventilation, temperature measurement devices, smart entrance control, and space management for complete distance. This will very certainly increase the market for smart building systems. Moreover, the smart technology could play an important role in the near future for monitoring staff activity as well as from avoiding virus spread. Intelligent technology can provide real-time data as it engages with systems and people.

Market driving Factors:

Rapid adoption of IoT-enabled BMS (Building Management System)

With increased building efficiency, improved tenant connections, and additional revenue generation opportunities, the Internet of Things (IoT) has a massive effect on the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) market. BMS can manage all building management services using a single infrastructure with no manual intervention. Internet-of-things building management systems are used for various objectives, including maintaining and repairing building systems, lowering energy consumption, and reducing building administration costs. At the building level, property owners use data gathered from external sensors, such as indoor environmental quality and space use, to adjust air conditioning and heating. Real-time lighting system helps to conserve and improve the inside atmosphere for its intended function.

Growing trends in Smart City projects

Smart buildings play a significant role in smart cities, even though the growth of smart buildings and smart cities are not mutually exclusive. Buildings with sensor networks can track sustainability initiatives, monitor power and water usage in live time, and connect with other smart city elements. Governments across the world are funneling millions into smart city projects, which would boost smart building adoption in different regions of the world. As a result, the expansion of the smart buildings market is projected to be supported by an increase in smart city efforts by various governments. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Transportation for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and Vivacity Labs introduced a range of AI-controlled smart traffic junctions in November 2020 to enhance safety and reduce congestion in the city.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Absence of teamwork among the standard bodies along with the rising cyberattacks

With IoT and current smart building technologies to perform together, there appears to be a lot of interaction among standard enterprises, city governments, organizations, and other stakeholders. This collaboration in the development of smart cities is critical to realizing the full potential of these technologies. Property and tenant management, along with facility management, each has its range of requirements & operating systems. Since these technologies are often built to connect with other systems, accessing data from building systems can be problematic. On the other hand, the increasing cyberattack is a major hindrance to market expansion. Each building system and equipment is connected to intelligent technology.
