New BSRIA study: The market for European Field DevicesJune 2021

BSRIA published its first heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) Field Device study in February 2020, for the US, followed by a China Field Devices study in April 2021.

This popular report will now expand its scope to European countries, looking at market size and trends to 2025, drivers and barriers, and the competitive landscape of the commercial market segmented into 3 modules:

  • Valves
  • Dampers for HVAC and fire safety
  • Sensors for HVAC automation

BSRIA has covered Building Automation Controls (BACS) for many years, but has now recognised the need for more in-depth coverage of non-residential field devices. Thanks to our combination of technical expertise in building applications and business intelligence capabilities, we can provide in-depth coverage of the Field Devices market. Available in October 2021, the study will provide detailed segmentation by product application, technical design, and connectivity type so clients can track progression in each market segment.

Trends BSRIA has observed include:

  • An increase in motorisation is boosting prices in most markets. 
  • Demand for energy efficiency and increasing expectation for user safety and user comfort is driving sales of dynamic devices. 
  • Cloud services and IoT technology are gradually being introduced to the market and installations of sensors, notably multi-sensors, are accelerating significantly
