For instance, in January 2023, Schneider Electric unveiled its home energy management solution, which enables homeowner energy independence and comfort at CES (Consumer Electronics Show). The newly unveiled solution includes a high-power solar inverter, home battery for clean energy storage, connected electric socket and light switches, electric vehicle charger, and smart electric panel.
The implementation segment accounted for the largest market share of 34.98% in 2022. The segment growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of smart building software & services across various business sectors. To develop a smart building, service providers first connect the fundamental systems, such as fire alarms, water pumps, power meters, lighting, and heating systems, with sensors and control systems. The implementation service providers assist building owners, facility managers, and operators in easy deployment and improving the operational efficiency of the fundamental systems. Such benefits of implementation services will improve segment growth through 2030.
The support and maintenance segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29.8% over the forecast period. The increasing implementation of smart building solutions globally is creating robust opportunities for segment growth. The support and maintenance services offer smart building management solutions support, maintenance, and upgradation to the building operators. Moreover, these service vendors also assist smart building operators in intelligent automation & techniques implementation for the efficient and cost-effective operations of smart buildings. These capabilities if support and maintenance services will supplement the segment growth from 2023 to 2030.
The commercial segment held a market share of 53.36% in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market by 2030. The high segment share can be attributed to the rising implementation of smart building solutions in IT companies, shopping malls, stadiums, and healthcare. Companies in the market have been coming up with various technology solutions aimed at offering better solutions, which has been driving the growth of the commercial segment. For instance, in March 2023, ABB Ltd. unveiled its new smart building management tool, ABB Ability Building Analyzer, which enables commercial building operators to reduce energy consumption and emissions.
The residential segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.3% over the forecast period. The growth of the residential segment can be attributed to the demand for Heating, Ventilation, and air Conditioning (HVAC) management, smart door lock security systems, smart home lighting, and smart meters to manage and monitor the building's mechanical and electrical systems.
