The building automation market is an expanding global opportunity, with growth underpinned by initiatives taken by governments to promote sustainable smart buildings, decreasing cost of hardware and networking technologies, smart city initiatives, and increased construction activity, amongst others. While reduction in solution cost has been a major driver for the installation of building automation systems for retrofit projects, other factors are impacting installation in new construction projects. As building automation systems have become more affordable, now even small and mid-sized apartment owners are using automation to operate buildings. Previously these systems were not usually deployed in sparsely occupied buildings such as warehouses and garages but with increased affordability these systems have applications in such non-traffic areas as well.
