Top Impacting Factors
Increased need for energy efficiency, standards, and regulations of the supportive industry, and development in the market for smart cities driving the global intelligent evacuation system market share. However, high initial investment is expected to hamper the intelligent building market growth during the forecast period.
Increased need for energy efficiency
The demand for intelligent building is on an increase since the past few years due to constant increase in awareness about energy conservation throughout the world. Moreover, the adoption of green building and ecofriendly infrastructure has led to the construction of smart and energy efficient buildings, which regulates the energy usage and effectively manages the energy consumption in building across all the sectors. Smart technologies, such as occupancy sensors, smart thermostats, and HVAC and lighting controls help reduce energy usage in unoccupied offices, conference rooms, and other spaces. According to American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (AMCEE), smart technologies will save an estimated 8-18% of total energy consumption in subsectors that include Class B offices, small chain and independent retail stores, middle-tier franchise hotels, and regional hospitals.
Supportive industry standards and regulations
The governments across major economies are taking initiatives toward energy efficiency and sustainability in construction sector. Protocols and industry standards such as American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), BACnet, network communications protocol for building automation and control systems adopted worldwide as ISO 16484-5:2003, Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, the ISO standard for building automation worldwide: ISO/IEC 14908-1, ISO/IEC 14908-2, ISO/IEC 14908-3, and ISO/IEC 14908-4 are expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.
High initial investment
Intelligent buildings have complex operational procedures due to integration of associated additional components. This adds to the system cost as well as increases the overall cost for the smart building owing to the complexity associated with installation and requirement of experienced and skilled professionals. These systems require regular maintenance checks to ensure the functionality of the system and reliability, which results in extra maintenance cost that impedes the growth of the intelligent building market.
Evolving market for smart cities
Smart cities and smart buildings improve the quality and interactivity of urban services while reducing costs and ensuring sustainability. Smart buildings support energy efficiency, reduction in greenhouse gas emission, and deployment of renewable sources of energy. The intelligent building acts as the backbone of smart city and provides great opportunities for the vendors of the smart building market.
