 Europe Window Automation Market Size, By Product, 2015 & 2024 ($ Mn)


Increasing demand for automated ventilation systems in commercial and residential buildings will drive the window automation market share over the forecast timeframe. Rising expenditure on travel & tourism and favorable conditions for international trade are creating the demand for modern urban infrastructure establishment. Increasing spending on the infrastructure development by the government for attracting foreign investments will drive building automation products and services demand, further fueling the automatic ventilation systems industry.

Major installation benefits include ease-of-operation for elderly and physically challenged family members in residential households. It reduces the operational cost of commercial buildings due to lower expenditure on artificial air conditioning and reduced carbon dioxide emissions. Lack of customer awareness and stringent regulations defining the installations related to the window automation market are anticipated to negatively impact consumer inclination. However, long-term cost savings in terms of energy efficiency and moderate ROI will help the industry participants sustain their presence and provide a solid growth platform.

Window Automation Market, By Product

Electric window automation market held the largest revenue share in 2015. The integration of high-reliability actuators and sensors for automated control and the featured ability to maintain the ambient air and temperature in accordance with the consumer or client requirements will augment sales. The cost of electronic and electrical components across the globe has witnessed a significant decline over the past few years owing to the growing competition and economies of scale. Improved aesthetics and remote maneuverability offered by these solutions will also contribute to adoption.

Natural ventilation reduces energy requirements during daylight, thereby reducing artificial air conditioning requirements. Automated windows can detect and control the operations as per light and air requirements. They are integrated with sensors adjust the opening and closing at the desired angle as per requirements. Hybrid systems, which use mechanical ventilations along with automated natural ventilation systems reduce the use of fans and other mechanical components. This results in reduced energy usage, thereby bringing down the electricity cost.

Window Automation Market, By Component

Control panels provide two-way communication with the help of the integrated actuators. Characteristics such as noise reduction, low disturbance, and automated control, can be achieved through installation. It can also enable systems to function at higher speeds for immediate visual response in the event of an alarm or smoke clearance requirement.

Window automation market size is expected to witness growth due to the efficient ventilation requirements for residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Manufacturers offer extensive product portfolio having characteristics such as smoke control, automated control, and providing natural ventilation, through manually operated switches, remote controls, or automated control panels. These systems are fitted with smoke sensors, gas detectors, wind/rain sensors, and T&H sensors. Motors & actuators achieve automation, sensors & detectors provide safety to users and control panels form the internal controlling unit.

Window Automation Market, By Application

Residential applications expected to witness the highest growth as a result of increasing consumer interest towards automated products for energy consumption savings. Moreover, the rising average income of individual globally has led to a significant growth in the buying capability of consumers. Increased affordability to support enhanced aesthetics along with the rising demand for smart homes will present potential growth avenues from 2016 to 2024.

Commercial applications can be found in retail, airports, educational buildings, hospitality, healthcare, and public transit systems. The rising infrastructure spending in the development of automated building construction further propels the demand for automatic ventilation. The safety provided by automatic ventilation systems against smoke, fire, and heat drives the industrial installation demand.

Window Automation Market, By End-Use

Window manufacturers held the largest revenue share across the globe. Increasing R&D in providing more efficient solutions to commercial, residential, and industrial applications have enabled the manufacturers to incorporate new technologies. Moreover, the requirement to capitalize on the growing opportunities in the segment is likely to garner a huge investment by the manufacturers.

Rising disposable income for construction of aesthetically advanced greenhouse homes will fuel the window automation market revenue in profile houses. This demand is attributed to the trend of automated building solutions and rising concept of smart homes. OEMs are investing in this technology to offer enhanced aesthetic appeal to consumers with an easy accessibility to the natural ventilation and lighting applications.


Window Automation Market, By Region

Product installation in extreme weather conditions for carrying out efficient heating and cooling, specifically in Europe, have witnessed considerable demand over the past few years. The presence of a large number of industry participants in the region has provided considerable consumer awareness and motivation for these solutions. Regulatory mandates in the interest of population safety in this region have escalated the window automation market demand in smoke ventilation applications. Moreover, the presence of large untapped consumer base will provide considerable growth opportunities to the Europe window automation size.

The building codes in China have developed various standards for natural lighting, ventilation, and smoke evacuation in building areas that include kitchen, stairs, elevators, bedrooms, toilet areas and other parts of the buildings. Increasing cost of the land, compact spaces owing to highly dense city infrastructure, and the need for compliance with these building design codes and standards will augment the China window automation market share.

Competitive Market Share

The window automation market share is fragmented in nature. The industry competition is thus high as the established brands must compete with the local rates and focus on their product offerings. The industry is forecast to witness consolidation for companies to expand product portfolios or their distribution channels in different regions. For instance, Automated Door Systems is the distributor of TOPP automation products in the UK. Similarly, Kintrol distributes TOPP door and window automation products in Australia. Thus, TOPP has expanded its distribution channels and have gained high growth positioning over the competitors.

Manufacturers, designers, specifiers, dealers, and installer technicians working in the window automation market need to comply with the regulatory standards along with end-users of these products. For instance, European BS 9999 is the code of practice for fire safety in design, management, and building use. It provides the practice framework for the designing of safety solutions for building construction management. BS 9999 is important for designers and architects for designing of automatic windows for smoke ventilation. Actuated design can be modified for varying degrees of automatic smoke ventilation using these standards.

Window Automation Industry Background
