This report examines the global market for building automation equipment and analyzes significant trends, threats and opportunities for growth impacting the market through 2021. Building automation (BA) systems utilize sensors, controllers and actuators to automatically control a building’s heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. These systems reduce the energy consumption and operating costs of buildings and improve occupants’ comfort and health.
In these systems, sensors are utilized to read variable measurements of environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity and air quality. Data is transmitted to controllers, and once the data is aggregated and analyzed controllers then transmit commands to actuators. Actuators then alter the operation of HVAC systems to achieve the desired climate in a space. As more sophisticated analytics are being performed to interpret an increasing amount of transmitted data, building automation software has become a more integral part of BA systems. Other types of BA equipment included in this report include gateways, which can facilitate communications among devices, and HMI screens, which provide visualization of system conditions and operations.
This report aims to provide both product manufacturers and system integrators of BA equipment with an in-depth understanding of market sizes, growth forecasts, market trends, and the competitive landscape of this industry. Qualitative analysis is provided for recent trends influencing the industry such as the integration of BA systems with other building systems and the use of both hosted services in the cloud and local devices on the edge to house system analytics.
