Customer friendliness and flexible business models and subscriptions for remote building automation (BA) services via platform-based solutions will be the key differentiators to increase market adoption.

Critical infrastructure such as data centres, healthcare buildings, and financial institutions should be the short-term targets for BA companies to promote remote services.

Networking of buildings, building systems data, and portfolio-wide energy management will be the key developments to focus on for long-term business models.

Performance, application, service, and functionality-specific remote BA services will be the main future business models.

The US, the UK, Germany, and Australia show high-growth potential in the short term, while Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Scandinavia, and China will offer medium to long-term growth potential for remote BA services.
