A smart building is any type of infrastructure that makes use of automation in order to control the operations of the building which can be anything such as ventilation, lighting, heating, air conditioning, security, and much more. To do all this actuators, sensors, and microchips are used within the building to collect the data and accordingly manage the services and functions. Such type of infrastructures help the operators, owners, and facility managers to enhance the asset performance and reliability, which leads to space optimization, minimizes the energy utilization, and reduces the environmental impact of buildings.

The global smart building market was valued at around USD 5,800 million in the year 2016 and it is expected to reach approximately USD 61,900 million by 2024. The global smart building market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of more than 34% between 2017 and 2024.

The major factor driving the growth of smart building market is the globally increasing concerns about the energy consumption. The utilization of energy is increasing at a rapid rate thus making it necessary to find efficient ways to utilize it wisely. Since there has been an increase in the number of commercial complexes that consumes a significant amount of electricity and other types of energy the requirement for the automation systems has increased. 

Intelligent security systems are most widely used automation type in smart buildings. Intelligent security management system results in much lower operational costs and increased energy savings through automated energy conservation features. Rising security concerns and the latest technological advancement and reliability that is provided by the intelligent security systems is increasing its demand in the global market.

Professional services segment contributed more than 50% of the market share in 2016. The professional services segment is expected to retain its dominance in the forecast period. Professional services offer consultation and training activities by understanding the organization requirements, technical goals, and the challenges. Thus it helps the organizations to find effective ways to resolve their challenges. 

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. The commercial building segment is anticipated to register CAGR of approximately 34% during the forecast period. Increasing energy-saving concern in order to reduce the operational cost will drive the growth of this segment.
