Building Automation Systems for Commercial Buildings

HVAC, Lighting, Fire and Life Safety, Security and Access Controls, and Building Management Systems: Global Market Analysis and Forecast

The commercial building automation solution (BAS) market is undergoing large structural change. Although BASs are seeing increased adoption throughout the global building stock, particularly in retrofit and new construction, large-scale trends are expected to significantly affect the market’s 10-year growth outlook. The development of the intelligent buildings (IBs) market through Internet of Things (IoT) deployment in buildings has introduced customers to new tools for data acquisition and analysis. Market entrants are competing with traditional BAS offerings. Major BAS vendors recognize the market evolution and are introducing new versions of core BAS offerings as well as complementary IB solutions.

The result is an increasingly dynamic competitive landscape that will likely see considerable transformation in the future. Global revenue for traditional commercial BAS products is anticipated to reach $66 billion by 2029, growing steadily from 2020 to 2029. However, a significant amount of this growth is expected to be cannibalized by the emerging building IoT market, which is projected to grow at almost triple the commercial BAS rate. 

This report from Navigant Research, a Guidehouse company, analyzes the revenue overlap mentioned and the global market for commercial BASs in five key technology segments: HVAC, lighting, fire and life safety, security and access controls, and BMSs. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including drivers and barriers, associated with commercial BASs and IB adoption. Global market forecasts for revenue, broken out by segment, region, and building type, extend through 2029.
