Smart buildings and building automation are ambiguous terms used in reference to a widerange of solutions for controlling, monitoring and automating functions in buildings such ascommercial office spaces, retail stores, hotels, schools, hospitals and industrial buildings.Berg Insight’s definition of a building automation system requires that it has a smartphoneapp or a web portal as a user interface. Devices that only can be controlled with switches,timers, sensors and remote controls are thus not included in the scope of this study. Smartbuilding systems can be grouped into twelve primary categories: HVAC systems; lighting andwindow control; occupancy comfort and productivity systems; fire and safety; access andsecurity; water management; refrigeration; elevators and escalators management; pool andspa management, irrigation systems; charging for electric vehicles; and audio, video andentertainment.
Berg Insight estimates that 48 million connected devices were shipped globally into the BIoTmarket in 2018. Note that by connected devices we mean the functions encapsulated insensors and actuators, I/O modules, controllers and gateways used to control the functions ina smart building. It does not include the servers that may run the dashboard & apps, nordoes it include data storage & analytics. The market is broken down into twelve segments ofwhich the access and security market was the largest, followed closely by the fire and safetysegment. This intuitively makes sense because these two segments are not just “nice-tohave”,but critical in any commercial building. Moreover, access and security for acommercial building will comprise of a large number of units; sensors and actuators have togo into multiple doors and entrance ways into lobbies, laboratories, IT and server rooms, gymand fitness centres and supply rooms. In terms of the fire and safety segment: heat detectors,smoke alarms, sprinkler device placements are governed by regulations. There has to be aminimum number spaced a certain distance apart. This segment thus turns out to be thesecond largest market. Berg Insight estimates that shipments for all segments will grow at aCAGR of 36.0 percent to reach 163 million units worldwide in 2022.
Berg Insight estimates that more than 151 million connected devices for BIoT were inoperation throughout the world at the end of 2018. By 2022, Berg Insight estimates thatroughly 483 million units will be active worldwide, representing a CAGR of 33.3 percentbetween 2018 and 2022. About 4.5 million of these devices were connected via cellularnetworks in 2018. The number of cellular connections in the building automation market willgrow at a CAGR of 44.1 percent to reach 19.4 million in 2022. In terms of revenues, BergInsight estimates that connected devices into the global BIoT market generated revenues ofmore than US$ 1.2 billion in 2018. This figure will grow at a CAGR of 21.4 percent to almostUS$ 2.7 billion in 2022.
The most successful building automation solutions to date, in terms of sold units, includeaccess and security, fire and safety, HVAC systems and elevators and escalatorsmanagement. These solutions are marketed by product OEMs such as Assa Abloy, Avigilon,AMAG Technology, HID Global, Comark, Tyco, Albireo Energy, Cimetrics, Delta Controls,ENGIE Insight, Silvair, KONE, Otis, Schindler and ThyssenKrupp. The automatic control maybe done through a centralized system such as a Building Management System (BMS).Examples of BMS solution providers include ABB, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, SchneiderElectric, Siemens and United Technologies.
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. Instead of there being a single “killer-app” for user-experience,we are starting to see a combination of use-cases. These use-cases leverage the Internet ofThings, sensors and connectivity to enable customization of spaces in offices and conferencerooms based on occupancy levels and occupant preferences, efficient mobility throughoutthe building, and they help occupants with location and wayfinding – all controllable bymobile platforms. Most important, they are capable of predictive awareness of individualneeds.
