NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategic Analysis of the Facilities Management Market in Greater Sydney : Strong Construction Activity and a Healthy Outsourcing Trend to Boost Market Development

This research service aims to identify the trends and unique idiosyncrasies of the Greater Sydney facilities management (FM) market, which is the largest and the most dynamic FM market in Australia. It looks at the overall size and growth rates of the market and discusses key drivers and restraints. In addition, the study provides segmentation breakdowns by end-user verticals, which include commercial office space; general industry; healthcare and aged care; retail and wholesale; government and education; transport and infrastructure; and leisure, sport, and entertainment. Also, it analyses the competitive structure of the market and discusses the overall trends and development plans that are shaping the market.

Key Findings

The facilities management (FM) market in Greater Sydney is intensively competitive, with a greater propensity for outsourced FM than other Australian capital city. Service areas that are frequently outsourced include hard FM services, cleaning, and security.
Office buildings, healthcare, retail, and government buildings are the major FM end-use markets in Greater Sydney, accounting for over % of the total FM market, with commercial buildings being the single largest segment.

As such, development plans for commercial buildings and the decrease in commercial office vacancy rates are important drivers for the FM market in Sydney.
Due to its diversity, the Greater Sydney FM market has been less affected by the slowdown in the mining sector than other Australian capital cities. However, due to its maturity, growth in Greater Sydney's total FM market revenues is expected to be only just above inflation.

Growth in the Greater Sydney FM market is likely to be driven by factors such as the maturity in government outsourcing plans, development of the retirement and aged care segment, expansion of the tourism and event management segment, new investments in transport infrastructure, and increased demand for energy management services and solutions.

The recent trend for corporations to decentralise operations and to relocate headquarter offices from Sydney to other lower-cost capital cities, such as Adelaide and Perth, is expected to negatively impact the local FM market in the long term.
Also, the increasing trend of converting commercial buildings into multi-unit residential buildings is expected to restrain the FM market in this segment. The penetration of integrated facilities management (IFM) and bundled services contracts is increasing, particularly among large corporate and public customers.
