Smart Building Market Analysis

The Smart Building Market is expected to register a CAGR of 13.96% during the forecast period.

The growing smart cities sector, rising demand for energy-efficient buildings, and developments by market players are expected to drive the demand for smart buildings.

  • The concept of smart cities created considerable opportunities in the energy, waste, and infrastructure sectors with the Internet of Things. Smart homes, a significant trend in smart city concepts, have several advantages. Several smart city projects and initiatives are currently underway. Many smart city projects and initiatives are being implemented worldwide, driving global investment through urbanization. The OECD estimates that global investment in smart city initiatives may reach approximately USD 1.8 trillion between 2010 and 2030 across all metropolitan infrastructure projects.
  • Rising concerns about the surge in energy consumption globally are anticipated to fuel more advanced and energy-efficient technologies. However, stringent governance on energy consumption and green building initiatives also augment the demand for energy-efficient technology across buildings. This factor is expected to propel the implementation of smart building solutions globally.
  • Therefore, businesses in any industry can adopt IoT devices, comprising smart thermostats and lighting systems, to minimize their electrical consumption and make buildings more sustainable. Since the adoption of IoT-enabled building management systems is increasing rapidly, it is creating awareness about space utilization industry standards and efficient energy usage.
  • In addition to this, the demand is pushing energy services and technology companies to integrate their solutions and develop advanced mechanisms that can help consumers address challenges such as high energy bills and the removal of manual processes in doing so. The rapid pace of technological innovation presents exciting opportunities to enhance people's lives and promote sustainability. This furthermore provides lucrative opportunities for players to expand their position in the market with strategic developments.
  • However, the market's growth is expected to be hampered by a shortage of competent professionals skilled in evaluating smart solution systems. Professionals in this field must be aware of design modifications and installations for future needs.
  • The office reopening post-COVID-19 was projected to increase the smart technology demand for safe surroundings. Facility managers and tenant companies of commercial buildings needed to provide a secure office environment post-lockdown. Therefore, smart technology could manage regular cleaning and disinfection, proper ventilation of offices, smart access controls, temperature measurement devices, and optimization of spaces to maintain physical distancing. These factors are anticipated to increase the demand for smart building solutions.

Smart Building Market Trends

Intelligent Security Systems to be the Fastest Growing Solution Segment

  • Intelligent security systems in the market refer to technologies and solutions that use automation, sensors, and data analytics to enhance the safety and security of occupants and assets within a building.
  • With the steady growth of smart cities and intelligent buildings, there comes an inherent need for greater security for property and individuals. As facilities become more connected, security breaches and invasions are also predicted. Some intelligent security system solutions used in smart buildings are fire safety, video surveillance, access controls, theft detection, intrusion detection, network systems, etc.
  • According to the IMD Smart City Index 2023, Zurich is an advanced smart city with the highest Human Development Index score, making it one of the most livable cities in the world. Notable exceptions to the HDI to IMD index were Dubai, Beijing, and Abu Dhabi. Beijing is a notable outlier, ranking 12th in the Digital Smart City rankings, but is almost 90 points behind Zurich in the HDI score. On the other hand, Munich is the 20th digital city with an HDI value of 950.
  • IoT-enabled emergency lighting solutions are designed to provide a wide range of solutions for safe evacuation in some emergency or fire for all buildings, from hotels to offices, schools, hospitals, stadiums, and train stations. These solutions drive more excellent security solutions for intelligent buildings and give a more holistic approach while reducing the total cost of ownership throughout the building life cycle.
  • The leverage of IoT-enabled tools, such as motion detection, presence simulation, and remote video access, will put greater control back in the hands of the customer. Solutions like door entry systems now provide commissioning and good usage for enhanced security and communication by offering interaction between door entry, access control, and video surveillance so that distance in buildings is now only a matter of IP connectivity. Intelligent security technology solutions can further assist in monitoring a building and warn about unauthorized entry. These systems can also supervise safe building evacuation, emergency call stations, and detection alarms for water, smoke, and gas leaks.
