Global IFM Market (2015 Update) : Service Integration, Contract Globalisation, and Value-added Services will Drive Continuous Revenue Growth

Key Findings

-The global integrated facility management (IFM) market was valued at $ x billion in 2013. It is expected to grow at an compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x % between 2013 and 2019 to reach $ x billion in 2019.
-While growth is faster in many of the emerging markets, the largest demand for IFM is likely to continue to come from the established markets of North America and Europe.
-IFM growth in the established markets is driven by demand for service integration and the inclusion of value-add services, while, in the developing markets, growth is still largely linked to demand from multinational corporations.
-The Chinese and Indian IFM markets are expected to more than treble in value between 2013 and 2019, but with outsourcing penetration still low and the concept of IFM not yet sufficiently utilised, these markets will probably remain comparatively small in the short and medium terms.
-Large commercial clients continue to generate the largest revenues for IFM, but interest from other client groups, including the public sector, infrastructure, industrial facilities, and some smaller businesses is also growing.
-Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity was high in 2013. There were also considerable re-structuring and divesture activities among leading participants to deal with pressured margins.
-Especially in North America and Europe, many IFM suppliers continue to increase their self-performing capabilities in services linked to higher margins, including building operation and maintenance, data centre services, and energy management.

CEO’s Perspective

The global IFM market is set to experience growth across all geographies and end-user markets; the overall projected CAGR is x % between 2013 and 2019.
Despite double-digit growth in some emerging markets, North America and Europe are likely to continue to account for more than two-third the global IFM market by 2019.
Expertise in energy management and sustainability is already a key differentiator in Western markets and is expected to become so globally.
Across the world, M&A is likely to be a key strategy to increase geographical and vertical scope to gain footprint and snap competitor share.
Due to its diverse requirements, the global IFM market is expected to remain open to new entrants, local and international.
