In order to minimize the use of energy, for space optimization, and to reduce the environmental impact of buildings, smart buildings serve as a better option. Considering all the above aspects the smart building's infrastructure provides the facility manager and owners to get better asset performance. The ever-increasing consumption of energy and subsequent expenses is driving the demand for the smart buildings. The smart buildings are controlled by automated systems in order to reduce the misuse or loss of energy. Since the energy management system offers benefits of proper energy consumption this segment will grow significantly during the forecast period.

The professional services segment contributed a major market share in 2017. Professional services offer consultation and training activities by understanding the organization requirements, technical goals, and the challenges. Thus handling of the problems is done in an efficient way. Owing to which the demand for the professional services is high. 

Commercial buildings include office buildings, retail infrastructures such as malls, shopping stores, and others. All these buildings have huge utilization of energy and require high-tech security systems thus commercial buildings have increased utilization of the automated systems. The commercial buildings segment accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Increasing energy-saving concern in order to reduce the operational cost will drive the growth of this segment.

The market is growing at a rapid pace in the developing regions. Though Europe dominates the smart building market; Asia Pacific region is anticipated to have an influential growth during the forecast period. The increasing technological developments and adoption of new infrastructure security & services in the emerging countries coupled with rising initiatives for smart buildings will propel the growth of the smart building market in Asia Pacific region.

The major market players in the smart building market are Siemens AG, ABB Group, Cisco Systems, Schneider SE, United Technologies Corporation, Buildingiq, Inc., Honeywell International, IBM Corporation, Johnson Controls, and Delta Controls, among others.
