European Integrated Facility Management (IFM) Market
With some variation by country, growth in the European IFM market hovers between % and % (CAGR 2013–2019) driven by more outsourcing and service integration.
Despite being the most mature and most saturated market, UK will remain the dominant IFM market over the forecast period.
Despite having limited appeal to various end-user groups (e.g., small- and medium-sized enterprises, or SMEs), the penetration of IFM is far from its saturation level.
While IFM growth in the Southern European markets is still largely linked to demand by multinationals, there are signs of more openness among domestic end users.
Demand for IFM will grow across all major end-user sectors, with offices retaining the dominant position.
As demand for multi-country contracts continues, FM suppliers with international capabilities are succeeding in poaching multinational clients from domestic suppliers.
While M&A continues to form an important part of larger participant‘s growth strategy, the IFM market will remain highly fragmented and open to new entrants.
Expertise and strong offerings in sustainability and energy savings have become a must and a key differentiator in the market.
