The Europe KNX products market size was valued at USD 8,506 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 18,932 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period (2023-2031).
KNX is an open standard protocol for commercial and residential building automation that has the potential to reduce annual energy consumption by up to sixty percent. It is an intelligent system that incorporates all of the building's operations, such as heating, ventilation, and lighting, into a unified whole, resulting in cost savings and improved energy efficiency. Increased awareness of improving energy efficiency is the primary factor propelling the market expansion. In addition, the increasing demand for convenience and adaptability in residential and commercial construction is another factor driving market growth. The accelerating rate of urbanization and the rising demand for a convenient, environmentally friendly, and safe place to live and work will contribute to the acceleration of market growth. Its ability to cover the entire world's population with a single network, as well as its future-proof nature, limitless adaptability, and personalization options, will propel it to the vanguard of the market.
Concerns about dwindling resources and climate change have made energy efficiency a crucial social issue. 40% of total energy consumption is accounted for by buildings, presenting a substantial opportunity for energy savings. A building equipped with a KNX home and building automation control system can ensure economic energy consumption and, as a result, improve energy efficiency. The prudent use of energy will not only benefit future generations but will also make homes more cost-effective. Blinds, shutters, room thermostats, heating valves, window sensors, and light sensors can communicate using a KNX system. Comparing a KNX installation to conventional systems in a controlled research environment, several specialized research programs conducted by various universities have revealed astonishing energy savings results.
The pursuit of high and sophisticated living standards with access to technologically connected devices, such as televisions, refrigerators, smartphones, and various other electronic devices, has become popular. A KNX system facilitates the adaptation of the home automation system to changing requirements, increases the long-term value of the real estate, and reduces long-term upgrading costs. It enables users to control all functions conveniently, even when they are on the move, using their smartphone or tablet. The intelligent network for home automation connects motion detectors, window glass break sensors, and blind controls to the alarm system, the emergency button, and the users' mobile devices to ensure the highest level of safety and security. In the coming years, the market is anticipated to be driven by the rising demand for convenience and adaptability in residential and commercial structures.
Low awareness regarding the advancements and benefits of KNX products and the overall presence of KNX products on the international market in most of the western portion of the world, as well as developing and emerging economies, is anticipated to restrain the development of the KNX products market to some degree. According to other standards, the complexity of the KNX software platform ETS is anticipated to restrain the market's expansion further. Consequently, the lack of awareness regarding the presence and the high cost of KNX products are expected to restrain the market growth of KNX products.
KNX is currently emerging as the dominant home automation system worldwide, and its integration with IoT will strengthen this position. KNX is expected to provide future opportunities for KNX IoT manufacturers and system integrators utilizing IoT technology and the most recent IoT advancements. These opportunities have allowed KNX manufacturers to broaden the application portfolio of KNX products to include energy storage, smart metering, energy management, mobility, renewable energies, and smart infrastructure. The KNX IoT solution will enable 'out-of-the-box' operation of the current KNX ecosystem while still permitting sophisticated configuration and adaptation to specific customer or operational requirements. KNX installations could be connected to the Internet of Things by providing a URL and credentials, such as a username and password. In the future, the Internet of Things (IoT) will likely present numerous opportunities for adopting more open standards and the KNX standard.
