Power over Ethernet for Digital Buildings

Building Automation and Intelligent Building Applications: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Power over Ethernet (PoE) has been gaining attention as a potential connectivity solution for building automation and intelligent building technologies, such as lighting, sensors, smart locks, thermostats, digital signage, and other building controls. The primary market focus has been on PoE enabling a data network for lighting applications coupled with advanced sensing technologies ranging from people-counting sensors to air quality controls. PoE-based solutions are generating excitement in the market due to their reliability, flexibility, and scalability, as well as the potential cost savings associated with reductions in cabling infrastructure and labor costs.

The market for these PoE applications is young. Vendors are developing and testing solutions. A key barrier to wide adoption is the lack of a clearly articulated value proposition for PoE technology across use cases. Another challenge is stalling growth. Market players need to identify and grow appropriate market channels. Potential market entrants remain skeptical about the technology for building automation and consumer awareness remains low.

This report from Navigant Research, a Guidehouse company, discusses these and other market issues. The10-year market revenue forecast (2019-2028) is segmented by three categories: lighting applications coupled with advanced sensor technologies, lighting-only applications, and other building functionality applications such as HVAC controls, building access, and digital signage. The study is also segmented by new construction and retrofit projects, global regions, and commercial building types. This report does not cover PoE markets for IP phones, Wi-Fi routers, and IP cameras.
