“Customer engagement, flexible payment models, and open-source platform strategies are critical success factors for companies to stay competitive in the market,” said Frost & Sullivan Energy & Environment Research Analyst Anirudh Bhaskaran. “More acquisitions and partnerships between building service providers, BEMS suppliers, and technology giants will enable product portfolio strengthening and edge analytics by utilizing the full potential of IoT.”
Growth in the North American BEMS market will be supported by:
- Increased electricity costs;
- Multiple federal regulatory programs for energy efficiency in the US and Canada;
- Adoption of BEMS solutions such as utility bill management budgets and forecasts, and benchmarking to reduce peak demand charges;
- Commercial customer commitment to sustainability;
- High growth opportunities in industries, office, hospitality, utilities, and education; and
- Partnership and acquisition activities between BEMS suppliers and utilities to provide value-added customer services.
“Although the North America BEMS market is poised for healthy growth over the next five years, key concerns such as increasing cyber threats leading to data theft, data ownership uncertainties, and the Trump administration’s stand on energy management programs are factors that will hinder adoption rates and growth,” noted Bhaskaran.
