Façade builders segment valued at over USD 900 million in 2017 is growing substantially owing to their increasing usage in corporate offices and buildings. Corporate offices are implementing these solutions to cut down the energy consumption costs. The vendors are investing heavily in R&D to develop intelligent solutions that meet the requirements of modern façades.

Increasing disposable income of people is increasing the adoption of these solutions in profile houses. The construction of aesthetically-pleasing houses and growing penetration of smart homes will drive the window automation market growth in profile houses. Manufacturers are developing aesthetically-advanced solutions that allow the customers easy access to the natural ventilation.

Window Automation Market, Region

The U.S. window automation market is expected to reach over USD 2 billion by 2024 due to the increasing demand for low-cost solutions that provide nature ventilation. Increasing awareness among the builders of huge commercial complexes regarding the importance of automating management of temperature according to outside climate will drive the industry growth. Similarly, these systems are being widely implemented in buildings due to increasing fire hazards. In the U.S., in 2015, approximately 1.3 million fire incidents were reported that caused about 16,000 injuries and nearly 3,200 deaths.

The Europe market will grow significantly due to the increasing implementation of these systems in public transit. These systems provide the elderly and the disable easy access to ventilation and ease-of-operation. Furthermore, according to the directive implemented by the European Disability Strategy of European Commission, the residential and commercial buildings are being implemented with these systems.

Competitive Market Share

Some of the key players operating in the window automation industry include WindowMaster, TOPP S.r.l., SE Controls, Pella Corporation, Honeywell International, D+H Mechatronic AG, and Colt International Pty. Ltd. One of the common strategies adopted by the vendors include partnerships with regional players to expand their market reach. For instance, TOPP has formed a partnership with Automated Door Systems for the distribution of its products in the UK and with Kintrol for distribution in Australia. TOPP has expanded its distribution channels and business reach by forming partnerships.

Increasing stringency of regulations is forcing the designers, manufacturers, and dealers in the industry to comply with the standards. For instance, the BS 9999 standard provides a framework for the implementation of these systems for smoke ventilation for the building construction management in Europe.
