Smart Buildings Market Size to Reach USD 141.71 Billion in 2028 | Rise in Adoption of IoT Enabled Building Management Systems and Increasing Construction and Industrial Activities to Build Smart Infrastructure are Key Factors Driving Industry Revenue, says Emergen Research


The global smart buildings market size was USD 66.29 Billion in 2020. Rapid increase in smart city projects in various countries, rising focus on more efficient space utilization, and emerging 5G technology in developing countries are key factors driving market revenue growth.

Drivers: Rising adoption of IoT-enabled BMS

IoT-enabled building management systems and devices facilitates smooth functioning, monitoring, and management of smart buildings. IoT-enabled Building Management System (BMS) installed in smart buildings use sensor generated data, which improves building efficiency and enhances building occupant user experience. Furthermore, IoT-enabled devices consist of a wide range of sensors, actuators, and smart objects, which are used for various purposes such as reducing energy cost and repairing and maintaining building systems.

Restraints: Rising security concerns owing to IoT-enabled devices

Adoption of smart technology and IoT-enabled devices pose security threats to smart buildings. IoT devices and smart technology when connected to building systems are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Deployment may provide opportunity to hackers to access confidential and personal information and could compromise tenant safety and cause serious damage and risks.
