Smart Buildings Market Driver

  • Growing Need for Energy Efficient Building

Energy efficiency is a key factor for the sustainable development of a country. Due to the increasing global warming and government stringency, measures are increasingly being taken to reduce energy consumption as well as carbon pollution. The building sector accounts for a significant percentage of the world’s total energy consumption. According to a survey conducted by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global building sector consumes 42% of the total generated electricity. With the increasing urbanization in developing countries, the number and size of smart buildings is expected to increase leading to an increased demand for energy-efficient building solutions.

The growing concerns of increasing energy consumption worldwide are expected to fuel more advanced and energy- efficient technology. For instance, as per the lot and smart building report of IBM Corporation, commercial and real estate buildings utilize 50% water and energy. The report further states that buildings are expected to consume maximum energy by the end of 2025. Similarly, according to Schneider Electric Whitepaper, 36% of carbon emission comes from buildings. This high consumption and wastages exponentially increase the overall cost of operations and maintenance. However, strict governance on energy consumption and green building initiatives boost the demand for energy efficient technology across buildings. This factor is expected to propel the implementation of intelligent building solutions globally. According to the IBM Corporation report, implementing advanced technology, including Al, IoT, and others helped reduce energy usage by 40% and 10%-30% maintenance costs. Similarly, as per Deloitte's report, the implementation of smart technology and lot devices witnessed 70% energy saving in three years. This factor is expected to fuel the smart building market growth. In October 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced USD 61 million in funding for ten pilot projects using new technology to transform thousands of homes and workplaces into cutting-edge, energy-efficient structures. These Connected Communities can interact with the electrical grid to optimize their energy consumption, significantly reducing carbon emissions and energy costs.

Smart Buildings Market Automation Segment Insights

Smart Buildings Automation Insights

Based on the Automation, the global Smart Building market is segmented into Intelligent Security System, Building Energy Management System, Infrastructure Management System, and Network Management System. The Building Energy Management System segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing around ~ 38.2% to the market revenue. A building energy management system (BEMS) is a sophisticated method for monitoring and controlling the energy needs of a structure. Buildings use energy to perform various operations such as heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning. This energy accounts for a high operating expense. Therefore, smart buildings are equipped with energy management systems which monitor, measure, and manage energy consumption and increase operational efficiency, reducing energy wastage and operation cost, and providing various environmental and sustainability benefits. A building energy management system has been sub-segmented into energy management platform, HVAC control system, and lighting control system.

Security intelligence is the process of collecting, standardizing, and analyzing data created in real time by networks, apps, and other IT infrastructure, and then using that information to assess and improve an intelligent building's security posture. Smart buildings are equipped with intelligent security systems which provide physical security solutions to the buildings using video surveillance systems, access control systems, and emergency management systems that deliver overall security to the assets and infrastructure of the building from various security threats, suspicious activities, vandalism, thefts, and break-ins. Intelligent security systems are further sub-segmented into video-surveillance systems, access control systems, and energy management systems.

Smart Buildings Market Application Segment Insights

Smart Buildings Application Insights

Based on the Application, the global Smart Building market is segmented into Commercial, Industrial, Government & Public Infrastructure, and Residential. The Commercial segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing around ~ 46.24% to the market revenue. Commercial offices, shopping complexes, and hotels that are smart are outfitted with building automation systems such as intelligent security systems, infrastructure management systems, and energy management systems. The adoption of smart buildings in the commercial segment is more as compared to residential and industrial segments. Commercial spaces have been the early adopters of smart buildings and contribute to the significant market share. Building operating cost is the second highest expenditure of commercial businesses after employee salaries.

Smart industrial buildings reduce environmental impact, boost staff productivity, raise output, safeguard occupant health and safety, and promote operational efficiency by integrating security services, building automation, surveillance, and technology. Smart industrial buildings are generally equipped with improved building system controls, integration of systems, and enterprise management features. Industry buildings require a controlled environment and high amount of energy for its operations. Therefore, smart buildings provide industries a controlled environment and contribute to social development by making industry workspace safer and healthier. Manufacturing industries such as steel and iron plants have the most hazardous working environments; smart buildings can improve the working conditions by providing proper air-conditioning, medical technology, and safety protocols.

Smart Buildings Regional Insights

Based on region, the global Smart Building market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). North America accounted for highest market share of 36.87%. North America consists of US, Canada and Mexico. Smart building solutions are being used and accepted more frequently in the area. The large number of early adopters in the United States and Canada account for a sizeable portion of the market share in North America. Due to its developed infrastructure that can support smart automation solutions in the residential and commercial segments, the region is anticipated to dominate the global market over the time of the forecast.

Innovative door-related products such as access control systems, smart door locks, safety systems, and other door hardware accessories are considered in the smart building market. The necessity for innovative/intelligent security system components to deter theft has been prompted by increased crimes, including robbery and burglary at residential and commercial properties. For instance, the European Union records at least one burglary every 1.5 minutes, with some Member States recording 1,000 burglaries virtually every day, according to the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation. Thus, the proliferation of smart building technologies in European nations is fueled by growing security and privacy concerns and the IoT trend.
