solutions typically require pre-deployed devices and pre-designed monitoring and control intelligence. However, the emerging level of maturity of the Internet of Things paradigm and the subsequent proliferation and high penetration of smart portable and embedded devices (i.e. sensors, mobile devices, etc.) that can be deployed in buildings, taking advantage of readily available wireless internet infrastructure, turn the BAS market into a rapidly growing market. It is expected to grow at an annual rate of 16.7%, from €5.6 billion in 2016 to €16.2 billion in 2023, making it a very attractive market.
