Business Wire

BOULDER, Colo.–()–A new report from Navigant Research analyzes the global market for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions aimed at small and medium-sized buildings, including hardware, software, and services, with global market forecasts for revenue, through 2027.

While owners and occupants of small and medium-sized buildings have not been aggressive adopters of IoT technologies, signs of growth beyond the early adopters are emerging. As increasingly compelling IoT products and services come to market and strong use cases for small and medium-sized buildings become more apparent, market traction is increasing. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global revenue associated with IoT solutions for small and medium commercial buildings is expected to increase from $533.8 million in 2018 to over $4.0 billion in 2027 at a compound annual growth rate of 25.1%.

“Among the key market drivers are prices that continue to drop for IoT hardware and vendors that are willing to bundle solutions for use cases that provide benefits to the building owners and tenants,” says Neil Strother, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “At the same time, prices for data processing and analytics related to IoT solutions have dropped, creating further interest in this market segment.”

Other drivers of adoption include viable use cases for small and medium buildings, according to the report. For example, a well-designed IoT-enabled lighting or HVAC system can produce double-digit energy savings for a tenant or building owner. The payback might not be immediate, but over the course of a few months or a year, the savings can be apparent.

The report, IoT for Small and Medium Buildings, analyzes the global market for IoT solutions aimed at small and medium-sized buildings, including hardware, software, and services. It examines the competitive landscape and use cases and provides case studies highlighting IoT solutions for HVAC, lighting, and security applications. Global market forecasts for revenue, segmented by offering type, building type, and region, extend through 2027. The study also examines the market issues, including key drivers and barriers for IoT solutions in small and medium commercial buildings, as well as prevailing and emerging communication protocols for IoT systems.
