Executive summary

Building automation systems include a wide range of solutions for controlling, monitoring andautomating functions in buildings such as commercial office spaces, retail stores, hotels,schools, hospitals and industrial buildings. These systems can be controlled in various ways,ranging from simple local controls and user interfaces to cloud-based Building ManagementSystem (BMS) that offer remote and centralized control of several building functions acrossmultiple sites. In this report, building automation systems are grouped into six primarycategories: HVAC and energy management; lighting and window control; fire safety, securityand access control; elevator and escalator management; audio, video and entertainment;and water management.

Berg insight’s definition of a connected building is one that includes one or several buildingautomation systems that can be controlled and monitored from remote through a web portalor Internet-connected management system. A smart building is furthermore one that includesa system that combines and aggregates data from various building functions to provideinsights on the overall building performance. In a smart building, the various systems areaware of each other and exchange data to optimize building operations and occupancycomfort. For example, the HVAC system can control the level of ventilation in a room orcertain area of the building based on data from occupancy sensors or the access controlsystem which knows who and how many people that enter the building.

Building automation has been around for many decades but there is a new urgency due tofactors such as energy conservation as well as mandates for green construction. IoT offersthe technologies for building owners to easily measure and conserve energy. A major changeis starting to happen now especially in new construction, where the primary driver ischanging from cost reduction to features that enhance the user experience and change howusers and buildings interact. New use-cases are emerging which leverage the Internet ofThings, sensors and connectivity. The technology enables customization of spaces in officesand conference rooms based on occupancy levels and occupant preferences as well asprovide location and navigation throughout a building to help occupants find conferencerooms and available work desks.

Berg Insight estimates that 3.23 million connected building automation systems were shippedin Europe and North America in 2019. Note that by connected systems we mean systems thatare connected to the Internet and send data to a backoffice platform. Systems that can onlybe viewed and controlled locally on-premise is therefore not included. Shipments includeinstallations in new constructions as well as in incumbent buildings. The total installed base ofconnected systems in Europe and North America reached an estimated 20.5 million systemsin 2019. Berg Insight forecasts that the installed base will grow at a CAGR of 11.0 percent inthe two regions to reach 34.4 million connected building automation systems in 2024. BergInsight furthermore estimates that the building automation market in Europe and NorthAmerica generated revenues of close to € 29.5 billion in 2019. The market will grow at aCAGR of 10.4 percent to € 48.4 billion in 2024. Developments within connectivity,interoperability, artificial intelligence and machine learning enabling new and improvedservices are expected to create growth in the marketplace. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic,revenues in 2020 are expected to be slightly lower compared to the previous year. In 2021,revenues are however expected to bounce back and exceed the 2019 figures.

The building automation market is served by a range of different actors, spanning from smallstart-ups to major corporations that operate globally in various industry sectors. The leadingBMS providers include large companies such as ABB, Honeywell, Siemens, JohnsonControls and Schneider Electric. These players are also the leading actors in one or severalof the building automation categories in this report. Leading providers of HVAC controlproducts include Delta Controls, Distech Controls, KMC Controls and Danfoss. Major lightingand window control solution providers include Signify, Acuity Brands, Lutron and Somfy. Thefire safety, security and access control market is led by Assa Abloy, Axis, Carrier and Tyco.The elevator and escalator management market is dominated by KONE, Otis, Schindler andThyssenKrupp while the audio, video and entertainment segment is served by AMX/Harman,Crestron, Elan Home Systems and Extron. Water management is a smaller segment andincludes market players such as Apana and Banyan Water.
