The Australian building management and control systems (BMCS) market was worth US$250.8 million (AU$317.5 million) in 2006 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9 per cent from 2006 to 2013. The growth in this market is impacted by factors such as energy-efficient initiatives from the Government, investment in new constructions, customers’ desire for low life-cycle cost, and increased pursuit for comfort level contribute to the revenue growth of the Australian BMCS market.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (buildingtechnologies.frost.com), Strategic Analysis of the Australian Building Management and Controls Systems Market, reveals that the market earned revenues of US$250.8 million in 2006 and is estimated to reach US$351.4 million (AU$421.0) in 2013.

"Non-residential and construction activities have a direct impact on the number of new BMCS installed," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Sarah Wang. "The strong performance of the Australian economy has helped bolster construction spending across all sectors, particularly in office buildings, health and age care, retail and wholesale facilities, and educational facilities that have high density usage of BMCS."
The growth of the Australian economy in the recent past has pushed up construction spending across all sectors. In addition, energy efficiency ratings and similar initiatives have stimulated the use of BMCS with energy-efficient features in new buildings as well as replacements of old BMCS systems. Furthermore, growing demand from customers for long-term service and maintenance contracts has been another value proposition.
However, a mature market and the ready availability of relevant competing technologies promote an industry with low entry barriers and little product differentiation. Consequently, competition in the market is very intense and largely driven by price. Furthermore, the construction boom is expected to flatten in the next one to two years and this will only intensify the competition.
"Expenditure on building activities is expected to reduce drastically after 2007 which will lead to a reduction in the growth of BMCS in the new construction market and will result in an intensification of the existing fierce competition," explains Wang. "Despite wide-spread market education that was aimed to convey that open protocol adds flexibility to customers, it failed to bring any significant changes in the competitive landscape and as a result, this market is likely to grow at a moderate CAGR of 4.9 percent from 2006 to 2013."
While maintaining competitive price is important in any level of competition, BMCS manufacturers need to focus on delivering value-adding projects to customers in order to improve their profit margins. The inclusion of true system integration, effective energy saving systems, and long-term full services and maintenance contracts in their offerings is guaranteed to boost revenue margins.
