Energy Management Systems Market Overview :
Global energy management systems market is expected to garner $44.4 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 13.76 % during the forecast period 2014-2020. Energy management systems (EMS) are among the emerging technologies that enable an organization to collect real-time information on the net energy use through monitoring, assessing, and visualizing energy consumption.
This concept not only helps monitor energy consumption but also aids the organizations make data-driven decisions and enhance enterprise-level operation and financial decisions. Energy management systems are gaining popularity since they help operators gain a competitive advantage, increase their productivity, and reduce energy costs. In addition, the government policies toward energy conservation and the limited availability of fossils is drawing attention of the corporates. Based on geography, North America was the largest revenue-generating region in the energy management systems market in 2013. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to be a rapidly growing market with estimated revenue of $10.67 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 19.1% during 2014‐2020. However, investment hurdles, longer payback period, and hidden costs are the factors that restrict the growth of global energy management systems industry. Numerous key players are operating in the market, which include Schneider Electric, Siemens AG, Honeywell International, Inc., Elster Energy, Johnson controls, Inc., Gridpoint, Inc., IBM, and C3 Energy. They have adopted various growth strategies to capture a larger portion of the energy management systems market share and increase their customer base. Product launches, partnerships, and acquisitions are the prime growth strategies adopted by these companies to sustain the intense competition in the market.

Top Factors Impacting Global Energy Management Systems Market
Energy management system is becoming an essential tool for helping the industries, businesses, and individuals to become more energy efficient. The system helps organization and individual to monitor and reduce energy consumption, which eventually helps them to reduce the electricity expenses through a significant figure. The factors, such as rise in energy crisis as well as growth in industries in emerging economies (China and India for instance), are anticipated to positively affect the energy management systems market.
The prime source for the growth and development of an industry relies on energy that is typically derived from fossil fuels, which is non-renewable. Energy prices fluctuate because of changes in supply and demand, extreme weather conditions, and economic conditions. The consistently increasing demand for energy combined with price fluctuations are and would continue to affect company’s budget and financials. Energy management system will help companies manage their energy consumption, monitor energy wastage, and save on energy costs. With this rise in energy cost and the need for an energy-efficient system, the impact of this factor on the energy management systems industry would augment in the future.
Energy management systems, with their software & hardware, provide industries with the historical data analysis as well as real-time data analysis, which helps them to reduce the risk of losses during production, transmission, and distribution. EMS helps power transmission & distribution companies to set their operation as per the demand. In addition, EMS is a part of smart grid & smart metering. The rapid growth of this industry has a positive impact on the energy management systems market.
Companies have the maximum focus upon reducing their production cost without compromising on the quality. Operating budget for the production cycle can be reduced with the help of EMS, which in turn would help businesses to reduce their production and the product cost. This factor will have positive impact on market energy management systems market in future.
Investment hurdles and longer payback period
The cost of EMS modules is characterized with expensive technology and high R&D cost. A company’s capital spending is highly correlated with the financial health of the company. In addition, the return on investment is steady, and may take a period of nearly three to four years. High investments and a longer payback period act as restraints, and are expected to negatively influence the market.
Stringent Government Policies
Government as well as different organizations, such as WHO, set new rules and regulations for different energy-related perspectives. For example, government focuses on global reduction of carbon emission. CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a UK based firm, keeps a consistent check on emissions from the industries, and the results are reported to the government. EMS provides enterprise carbon and energy management solutions to use the machineries and appliances in an effective manner, so that carbon emission can be reduced. Government also gives benefits to such companies who have positively reduced their carbon emission. In addition, in regions, such as Europe, the government provides support and subsidies to encourage adoption of home energy management system to reduce the energy consumption. Such policies encourage corporates as well as household users to use energy management products, thereby positively affecting the energy management systems market.
Any costs that are not typically included in the engineering-economic models is referred as a hidden cost. The three potential sources of hidden costs of EMS are the general overhead costs of energy management, the industry specific costs with respect to the choice of an energy-efficient option, and the potential loss of utility associated with energy-efficient choices. These costs increase the investment, thereby making EMS more expensive. These factors are observed to negatively affect the energy management systems market.
