Global outlook of the energy management systems market
Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global energy management systems market will grow impressively during the next four years and will post a CAGR of almost 17% by 2020. The increasing need for reducing carbon emission levels has induced utilities and energy companies to change the functioning of the grid by implementing new IT technology in every part of the value chain. This industry research report identifies this change in grid structure to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. IT systems help in transforming the grid by integrating several low carbon polluting technologies such as renewable energy, distribution generation, and energy storage for power generation. Though beneficial, these technologies make grid operations more complex, in turn, driving the demand for energy managementsolutions. These systems facilitate seamless integration of power generation resources and also offer services such as load forecasting, data analytics, state estimation, and fault calculation. This enables utilities companies to generate the required power to meet the peak hour demand and also helps in minimizing excess power generation.
Owing to high energy costs, the construction industry across the world is investing in adopting energy efficiency solutions. Since green energy systems increase efficiency and reduce the impact of production and manufacturing processes on surroundings, there is an increasing adoption of green systems by the commercial sector. Moreover, green energy systems reduce energy costs and greenhouse emissions which will induce several industrial sectors to adopt green systems in the coming years.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The market is characterized by the presence of several well-established and regional energy management companies. Since the local or regional vendors dominate the market in several geographies, the level of competition among the vendors is quite high and the estimated growth in the demand for energy management systems will further intensify the competitive environment among vendors. To increase their revenue share and also acquire new technologies, vendors have started adopting M&A strategies and are also following effective product launching practices. Additionally, vendors are also collaborating with different industry experts to gain access to markets as well as latest technologies. Major vendors such as Siemens and Schneider Electric are currently the leaders in the energy management services market and their growth mainly attributes to their strong relationship with building owners due to their extensive product portfolios. To sustain the competitive environment, vendors have the need for high capital resources to make continuous investments in R&D for developing new energy management systems.
