Building Automation is Transforming into the Building Internet of Things Creating a $76Bn Market by 2020
The transformation of Building Automation Systems (BAS) into a Building Internet of Things (BIoT) is now underway. But as the plot is unfolding, the full impact of what BIoT will mean to the BAS industry is not yet well understood.
Memoori’s new report – The Transformation of BAS to BIoT 2015 to 2020 – will show that major disruption is on its way as both the competitive landscape and the supply chain will change for all those suppliers that want to engage in the wider BIoT business which will reach $76Bn by 2020.
starting point to establish the future potential for BIoT has to be to
size the current market for all the BAS services and projecting demand
until 2020. This we have carried out taking into account that the
business of designing and installing BAS services will for the most
part remain unchanged for some years but parts of it such as
supervisory software and enablement hardware are becoming part of the
Internet of Things system within the wider BIoT contract.
This will of course reduce the share of the BAS content within the fast growing BIoT business as the penetration of BAS morphing to BIoT grows. Other issues that we have taken into account that will determine how fast the development of BIoT encroaches upon BAS services include wireless technology which is vital for retrofitting existing buildings, substantial cost reductions in all core components of IoT and the creation of value add services through integration with corporate business systems.
Sizing of the BAS Business
There is wide variation in market share of each service ranging from Video Surveillance at 24.7% to Lighting Controls at 4%. We forecast that from 2014 to 2020 BAS services will grow by a CAGR of 9% with Video Surveillance achieving 11.25% growth and being the largest single market. We believe that video cameras will be the king of sensors connected to more points than any other sensor in the BIoT. IP network cameras have grown at a CAGR of more than double this over the same period. Bus Based Lighting Controls starting from a much smaller base will realize a CAGR of 17%.
Sizing of the BIoT Business
estimate that New Construction projects including major refurbishment
account for as much as 70% of the value of all BIoT business today in
the developed markets of the world and even more in developing markets.
This could change depending on the state of the construction industry
at any time.
The retrofit market in the future could amount to 30% plus in some years. Major BAS Systems suppliers are likely to target their legacy estate and offer to install a turnkey BIoT contract and this could be attractive to their customers; although it may be less open to plug and play which could inhibit its long term value.
Retrofitting BIoT to existing Smart Buildings is unlikely to be cost effective until prices come down and customers have recouped some of the original investment. To strip out all or some of the existing control and monitoring systems may require the building to be closed down causing further costs. Until we have learnt from the many lessons of installing BIoT on new construct projects few comprehensive BIoT systems will be installed in existing Smart Buildings. The development of wireless controls will have a major impact on the uptake of BIoT in retrofitting existing buildings.
shows that we see major opportunities for growth across all four value
chains. Initially much of the investment will involve developing
connectivity through the deployment of Wireless Sensor Networks and
upgrading of Network Hardware, before being overtaken by a much faster
growing IoT Services Market by 2020.
We expect that in order for the Building Internet of Things (BIoT) to deliver a comprehensive and cost effective solution across all the services that now co-exist in Smart Buildings it will require fundamental changes on how these systems are designed and contracts to install are arranged. We expect that in the future, BIoT will be organized around 4 main contracts, which are identified and analyzed in the report.
