Energy Efficiency Global Products and Services Markets

Abstract

The global energy efficiency (EE) market encompasses product and service markets that enable residential, commercial and industrial energy consumers to use less energy and save money. EE products include EE building goods, EE appliances, EE consumer electronics, smart meters, EE lighting, motor efficiency controllers, power management software and EE vehicles. EE services encompass smart grid, demand response, cloud computing and consulting and auditing services and also include energy service companies (ESCOs).

SBI Energy estimates in 2012, the total global energy efficiency market totaled a hefty $595.45 billion. Although growth slipped a bit during the global recession of 2008-2009, business has picked back up and many market segments are now thriving. The future of the global EE market remains bright, as some segments enjoy especially prosperous growth. Smart meters are projected to experience a near 732.9% hike between 2012 and 2023, while EE appliances are expected to grow nearly 574% in the same time period.

A number of driving and inhibitory factors are affecting growth in this many-faceted market, some impacting the market as a whole and others only specific market segments. One of the most noteworthy factors influencing the total EE market is an increase in the number and stringency of regulations and other EE requirements around the world. This movement has helped to spur growth in many EE markets, as governments, manufacturers, businesses and others strive to reduce energy use in order to meet the new standards.

Going green has become popular, not only among regulators and governments, but also in the consumer world. People around the globe are becoming increasingly aware of their environment and personal health and also want to do their part to lower GHG emissions and reduce the use of natural resources. Not all those delving into the world of energy efficiency are inspired to go green simply to save the earth, however; incorporating energy efficiency products and services also often saves money - at least in the long run. For perspective on what these savings equate to, the Environmental Protection Agency calculates that if every appliance purchased in the United States in 2011 would have carried the Energy StarR tag, two billion KWh of electricity could have been saved, which would have equated to a savings of $585 million in annual energy costs.

Energy Efficiency: Global Products and Services Markets contains comprehensive historical data (2008-2012) and forecast data (2013-2023) for the global EE market, including the industry's key product and service sub-segments. This report identifies significant trends and factors (such as the regulatory scene, new technologies, employment opportunities and economic drivers and challenges), which affect the size and direction of market growth around the world. Profiles of 15 major - or particularly interesting - companies involved in the industry are also included in this report.
