Intelligent building management systems IBMS
Intelligent building management systems (IBMS) are used to manage the technology involved in modern buildings. Building management systems are enhanced with the internet and related IT infrastructure to create IBMS. All the management systems installed in a building are integrated in the IBMS via an Internet protocol (IP) network. A single front-end interface is provided in the IBMS through which all the subsystems are managed.
- Reduce the energy consumption and carbon footprint of the building.
- Maintain infrastructure.
- Comply with regulations.
- Reduce operating costs.
- Reduce the need for inspection.
- Reduce errors and failures.
- Improve building safety
Growth in the construction sector is the main driver of the IBMS market. With the increasing population, requirements for sound infrastructure are also on the rise. In additon, the rising adoption of technology in the buildings has increased the demand for IBMS, as new and innovative management solutions are being deployed in the buildings to manage technical applications. Power-line communications also provide tremendous growth opportunities for the IBMS market. It assists power-line communication technology by improving low speed and high speed networking operations.
However, lack of awareness about the IBMS and incompatibility of devices involved in IBMS systems are restraining the growth of the market.
The IBMS market is segmented on the basis of product and application.
- On the basis of product the IBMS market is divided into: communication protocols, general lighting controls, security and access controls, standards and data distribution, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls, outdoor controls, and entertainment controls.
- Applications using IBMS include hospitality, life science, energy and infrastructure, residential and retail, educational centers, religious centers, manufacturing buildings, and office space.
Major players in the IBMS market include Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited, Allied Digital Services limited, NG Bailey Group, Schneider Electric SE, Delta Electronics, Inc., Siemsatec Ltd., Pacific Control Systems, Larsen & Toubro Limited, T-Systems International GmbH and Advanced Control Corporation.
