Industrial Energy Management Software and Services Market to Reach $5.6 Billion by 2020

October 31, 2011

Industrial and manufacturing companies in the United States are quickly coming to the realization that energy and sustainability issues are a critical requirement for the competitiveness and even survival of their businesses.  Using close to one-third of all the energy consumed in the United States on an annual basis, with high price volatility and stiff global competition for market share, U.S. industries are better understanding their energy consumption patterns and are adopting organizational capabilities to better manage its use.  Energy management software and service offerings, along with new energy management standards and certification programs, have created a renewed focus on energy as a manageable input to the industrial process.

According to a new report from Pike Research, under these market conditions the U.S. market for industrial energy management software and services will rise from $960 million in 2011 to $5.6 billion by 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.6%.  The cleantech market intelligence firm anticipates that the services segment will represent the lion’s share – more than 85% — of the total market during the forecast period.

“Energy management has become not only a company-specific issue, but a national imperative as well,” says Pike Research president Clint Wheelock.  “There is a definite shift taking place in the way industrial companies view energy procurement and use internally, and how its management and use is perceived externally by the company’s customers and supply chain.”

Wheelock adds that although it has been in existence for decades, the industrial energy management software and services market is evolving rapidly with technological advances and a growing knowledge base resulting from the increased availability of detailed information about industrial energy use.  Pike Research’s analysis indicates that there are multiple market influences that will drive growth and demand for energy management software and services.  The strongest drivers include the desire for industrial companies to understand and limit the variability and cost of their energy inputs, and to satisfy increasing sustainability demands from their supply chain partners, consumers, and other stakeholders.

Pike Research’s report, “Energy Management Systems for Industrial Markets”, examines energy management software and services market trends, industrial capital expenditures, risk appetite characteristics for implementing energy management initiatives, and market forecasts and growth prospects in the United States for the period from 2011 through 2020.  In addition, Pike Research assesses the competitive landscape, provides key statistics on energy management adoption rates, and identifies industrial market segments where growth is projected to be the highest.  An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the firm’s website.
