Asia Pacific will grow with the highest CAGR of approximately 35% between 2017 and 2024 in smart building market.
The brains behind the build, professionals who make buildings better and more user friendly are in high demand.
Building services engineering ensures that buildings do what they are meant to do: providing a safe and comfortable environment for people that inhabit them so that they can live, work, and thrive. It is the task of building engineers to transform architectural designs into concrete reality.
Building services engineers are also on the front line of the battle to create a more sustainable environment by designing buildings that reduce energy consumption. The running of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment within a building can consume a lot of energy. In Asia Pacific, energy consumption in buildings will continue to grow rapidly as a result of new construction spurred by high economic growth and the increasing demand for cooling in warm climate regions. Currently, China and Japan account for the largest share of the commercial building floor space, followed by India, South Korea, and Australia. In response to environmental demands, the smart thermostat market is booming within building services. Asia-Pacific witness a significant growth rate over the forecast period.
As we move into a new decade, there is no doubt that this industry will be a key participant in building the future of the modern world – and that building services engineers will continue to be in high demand.
