"Changes in the mindset across all stakeholders, including service providers, clients, and occupiers, are significantly impacting facilities management (FM), whether in terms of a value proposition or service requirements," said Janice Wung, Program Manager, Industrial Practice, Frost & Sullivan. "Innovation through the incorporation of technology-supported propositions or enabling technologies is key to the future of FM."

Wung added: "IFM opportunities can involve various building-related components, and these can range from energy to visitor experience. Due to this, service providers must identify the need to act swiftly through collaborations/partnerships with suitable technology or platform providers or firms that possess strong technical or niche capabilities."

The increasing demand for energy efficiency and sustainability is driving the IFM market, thereby presenting lucrative prospects for market participants, such as:

  • Workplace management to optimize occupier experience: Service providers can look for opportunities in existing engagements by integrating workplace management into core FM/IFM services.
  • Data analytics to improve maintenance and costs: Acknowledging the growing demand for data analytics will allow service providers to drive awareness.
  • Energy management to optimize cost and comply with building standards: As technology and innovation continue to be the core of energy management solutions, service providers should incorporate technologies such as real-time reporting to optimize the solutions.
  • Market collaboration and consolidation to leverage knowledge and experience: Vendors should identify areas ripe for expansion supported by partnerships/collaborations with specialized or technical firms.
