NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Use this report to:
Analyze energy management information systems' (EMIS) user interface devices, controllers, actuators, and output devices (e.g, dimmers, automated window coverings,
dampers, etc.).
Identify major enabling technologies for the various types of home automation products, such as sensors, software, wiring, and networking devices.
Learn about EMIS market environment (economic conditions, consumer attitudes).

The global EMIS market has grew to nearly $57.5 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8% from 2015 to 2020, from $59.9 billion in 2015 to nearly $72.1 billion in 2020.
The U.S. market totaled $27.5 billion in 2014. This market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 0.8% from 2015 to 2020, from $27.9 billion in 2015 to $29.1 billion by 2020.
The EMIS Market for other countries (including Asia-Pacific, Europe and Rest of the World) totaled nearly $30 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2015 to 2020, from $32 billion in 2015 to nearly $43 billion by 2020.

Building energy usage can be reduced by 5% to 20% or more by identifying and correcting operational issues. Building owners and operators have various incentives to
reduce energy consumption, including adhering to business best practices, eliminating inefficiencies, reducing costs, participating in various governmental and private
incentive programs, conserving energy resources, and reducing carbon emissions. Many of these issues can be managed by building operators, energy managers and
other decision-makers using automated monitoring and control technologies that collectively are known as energy management information systems (EMIS), or
sometimes enterprise energy management (EEM). This report uses the two terms interchangeably.
EMIS refers to data acquisition hardware, software and communication systems that provide energy information to commercial building energy managers, facility managers,
financial managers and electric utilities. A number of providers offer products that are described as EMIS or EEM, although the specific details of their offerings differ widely
between companies. The scope of this report also includes professional services that support the implementation of EMIS, such as needs analysis, project design and
integration services.
EMIS solutions are applicable for commercial, governmental and nonprofit entities in every segment of the economy, although some segments are intrinsically more energy
intensive and thus have a greater incentive to adopt EMIS solutions, such as manufacturing operations and data centers. A growing number of individual consumers
are using custom-tailored EMIS solutions to manage their household energy use.
Although formalized EMIS solutions are not directly applicable for private consumers such as homeowners, historical analysis and decision support to enhance energy
efficiency of EMIS are frequently accessible through the EMIS solutions employed by power providers. These power providers enable consumers to become more informed
and more efficient by providing historical and current power usage or appliance-specific utility-usage data. Current data analysis tools, such as data
warehouse technology and other computing practices, allow power providers to provide consumer power consumption data periodically and on demand with the ability
to secure other consumer information or to group the data in an endless variety of ways.

This report is an update of an earlier BCC Research report published in 2012. The overall goal of this report is to identify and prioritize the business opportunities for
providers of EMIS solutions and related services that will arise over the next five years as these technologies increase their market penetration. In support of this goal,
specific objectives of the report include:
Identifying the EMIS technologies and applications with the greatest commercial potential over the next five years (2015–2020).
Estimating the market for these technologies in 2014.
Analyzing the technical, economic and other demand drivers for these technologies and other prerequisites of success in these markets.
Projecting the potential markets for these technologies through 2020.

The report is intended especially for providers of EMIS technologies and solutions and related services. Although the report is structured around specific technologies, it is
largely nontechnical in nature. That is, it is concerned less with theory and jargon than with what works, how much of the latter the market is likely to purchase and at what
As such, the report's main audience is executive management and marketing and financial analysts. It is not written specifically for scientists and technologists, although
its findings concern the market for their work, including the availability of government and corporate research funding for different technologies and applications.
Government agencies and environmental and public policy groups with an interest in these areas should also find the report useful.

The study covers the major segments of the EMIS market, which are defined as:
The study addresses the major enabling technologies for the various types of home automation products, such as:
Wiring and networking devices.
User interface devices.
Actuators and output devices (e.g., dimmers, automated window coverings, dampers, etc.)

The study format includes the following major elements:
Executive summary.
EMIS functions.
Enabling technologies.
Market environment (economic conditions, consumer attitudes).
Current (2014) and projected market for home automation technologies and products through 2020.
Developers and suppliers of EMIS products.
Key patents.
While the main focus of the report is on the U.S. market, it also analyzes international markets for EMIS products and services.

Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study.
The findings and conclusions of the EMIS radio frequency identification (RFID) market are based on information gathered from developers, vendors, integrators and users of
energy information systems. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources such as trade publications, trade
associations, company literature and online databases to produce the baseline market estimates contained in this report.
With 2014 as a baseline, market projections for each market segment were developed for 2015 to 2020. The projections are based on a combination of a consensus among
the primary contacts combined with BCC Research's understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective. The analytical
methodologies used to generate the market estimates are described in detail, to enable the reader to evaluate their validity and substitute other assumptions and
values, if desired.
All dollar projections presented in this report are in 2014 constant U.S. dollars.
