Intelligent Buildings and the Impact of IoT 


“We are excited to participate in this new study on Intelligent Buildings. It will assist our organization in future business decisions by providing reliable third-party qualitative and quantitative data about the emerging Internet of Things for the commercial building sector” -- Stephen Brown, Director of Innovation, CSA Group

“The ‘Internet of Things’ are being used to greatly improve the efficiency of building automation systems and change the market dynamics for building management. As a result, we are happy to be participating in CABA's Intelligent Buildings and the Impact of IoT landmark research study. We expect to be able to use the findings to evaluate market direction in order to situate our product offerings and identify new business opportunities.” -- Debra Becker, Connected Buildings Sales Leader, Honeywell Building Solutions

The "Intelligent Buildings and the Impact of the Internet of Things" Landmark Research Report is now available for purchase in the CABA Store for $4,900 for CABA Members and $6,900 for Non-Members.  Purchase now.

The proliferation of IoT related to buildings has caused a dramatic shift from few siloed building systems to an interconnected system of devices and sensors that have the ability to collect and share data within and across buildings.  This, in turn, has created a large opportunity to increase the efficiency, security, productivity, occupancy comfort and profitability of buildings as relevant IoT data can be analyzed remotely and actionable information can be generated.  

It is critical that organizations in the building and IoT value chains have a solid understand of the current state and future direction of the Building IoT market, as this market is projected by Memoori Business Intelligence Ltd to reach US$76 billion by 2020.  The goal of this research is to provide a comprehensive examination of all the major aspects of IoT related to buildings, including:  state of the market, building IoT trends, business opportunities, technical barriers and opportunities, future market direction, issues, case studies and industry recommendations.  

IHS Research - $150,000 US Research
Extensive secondary research literature review 
150 Surveys (Facility managers, OEMs, thought leaders etc.)
15 In-Depth interviews with thought leaders

The purpose of this research is to examine the impact of IoT related to intelligent buildings.  This research should provide actionable data relevant to all segments of the intelligent building value chain, including, but not limited to: building owners, technology manufacturers, builders and developers, integrators and installers, service providers, insurance companies, industry associations and utility companies.
