Market Size & Trends

The global intelligent building automation technologies market size was valued at USD 102.74 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2023 to 2030. The market has witnessed considerable growth due to growing concerns over global warming, rising energy prices, and increasing awareness regarding energy conservation. Rising use of renewable energy sources and increasing consumer awareness about environmental protection will further drive the intelligent building automation technologies (IBAT) market. Building automation systems (BAS) integrate lighting, energy, safety, and security into one intuitive system, balancing optimum efficiency with productivity and occupant comfort. Growing awareness of life safety and security among the population is expected to favor market growth. People are becoming aware of financial losses incurred due to natural or man-made calamities such as floods, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, or construction fires. For instance, according to the U.S. Fire Administration, in 2018 alone, there were 5,610,000 fire incidents, with losses totaling USD 23 billion.

Organizations are widely adopting intelligent building automation technologies, which offer various applications such as lighting management, managing air conditioning, heat ventilation, and analyzing building data. Organizations are largely focusing on measures to curb energy consumption by activating/deactivating lights, HVAC systems, and other applications. According to research by elektormagazine.com, implementing IBAT in 10,000 square meters can save as much as 1,000,000 euros a year. Such factors are expected to fuel market growth.

Increasing the need for enhanced security and safety in intelligent buildings is also expected to contribute considerably to the intelligent building automation technologies industry growth. Adoption of various building automation protocols, open-ended architecture development, easy access to technological developments, and implementation of intelligent BAS in residences are expected to support industry growth on a large scale. Intelligent building automation technologies analyze and monitor the performance of buildings in terms of sustainability, comfort, and productivity. Also, these technologies are used in residences for microgrid management.

However, a lack of awareness among end-users and high initial investments may challenge growth over the forecast period. Also, technical difficulties related to intelligent building automation technologies operation may hinder market growth. Nevertheless, commoditization of the systems and developing a comprehensive valuation model may be an opportunity for key players. IP-based communication and convergence of the Internet of Things and automation technologies are opening new avenues for developing BAS across commercial, residential, and industrial segments.
