Europe’s building management market has grown constantly over the last few years. European Union legislation as well as national policymakers are looking to decrease energy consumption and carbon emissions. These initiatives are accelerating technological innovations in the building sector.
Now more than ever property owners, facility managers, and PropTechs are searching for solutions to transform their buildings into smart buildings.
“The European smart building market size is expected to grow from USD 3.59 billion in 2021 to reach USD 11.20 billion by 2028. The rising trend for the Internet of things (IoT) coupled with high security and privacy concerns will boost the market growth in the forthcoming years,” declares Fortune Business Insights, in a report, titled “Europe Smart Building Market, 2021-2028.”
Driven by this context and looking to provide customers with efficient and affordable ways to equip midsize buildings with Building Management Systems, Alvasys has signed on to distribute the Wattsense solution in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.
