Report: BAS market poised for change

According to a report, the BAS market will change, based on an increased focus on energy efficiency.

02/05/2010


According to a report from ABI Research , building automation systems (BAS) deliver a distributed management system to control and maintain a building's internal environment. It comprises a computerized, intelligent network of electronic devices, designed to monitor and control the mechanical and lighting systems in a building. The BAS market is dominated by a handful of players offering complete systems from field devices to management and service installations.

However, the market is poised for change. Increased emphasis on energy efficiency at organizational and governmental levels has combined with a push for more open systems supporting multi-vendor deployments and both are bringing in new providers to the BAS space. Extending BAS management to enterprise IT networks at the control level and adding wireless connectivity to traditionally wired field devices is expanding the role and reach of the BASs. This report examines the potential impact of these and other key factors upon the BAS market and provides market forecasts for equipment, software, and services as well as wired and wireless connectivity out to 2015.
