Building Automation Market will Reach $43 Billion

After years of steady but low growth, the commercial building automation systems (BAS) market is experiencing a rapid period of change and investment.

Traditionally, growth and adoption has been closely tied to new building completion but new entrants and new connectivity are driving greater investment.

According to the latest market study by ABI Research, over the next five years the building automation services market will grow to $43 billion -- that's up from $35 billion this year.

Two key factors are driving a new round of growth. Greater environmental and financial demands have raised the appeal of reducing energy consumption in commercial buildings and the benefits for optimizing building automation systems.

In addition, a new level of connectivity that stretches the reach of BAS apps from new sensors and actuators through to cloud application management and data analysis.

"This is a market long dominated by a handful of major players who deploy and manage commercial building management systems,” says Jonathan Collins, principal analyst at ABI Research.

Now these players are developing new ways to integrate and compete with a host of new service offerings. Perhaps we'll start to see some more meaningful examples of smart, connected building technology applications.

Dominant players Siemens, Johnson Controls, Honeywell, and Schneider Electric are increasingly seeing demand for their BAS systems connected to third-party player software as building owners gradually look to gain savings and offer additional level of control within their properties.

Within the BAS market, software and services will see the greatest revenue growth while hardware will lag as the pricing of actuators and switches fall.

In its latest market data analysis of the BAS market, ABI Research charts and forecasts the growing demand and revenue potential for building automation systems and the devices that connect to them.

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
