When I really think about it, I’m astounded by how much movement and change there is among companies in the building automation industry. Everyone — both new companies and old — is partnering, purchasing, and generally collaborating a heck of a lot more than they used to.
This industry map we put together is a pretty incredible visual.
Think you know the industry? Test yourself! What companies are missing here? (The answer’s at the bottom of this post, and the complete map is below that. But no peeking!)
It’s not so long ago that the industry was dominated by the “Big Four.” And while some companies are still mammoth forces in the industry, there are a lot of small companies that are building their own buzz.
The new spirit of collaboration helps the big companies innovate and keep up with customer demands, while the smaller companies get much-needed funding, resources, and market reach.
I’d call that a win-win for everyone involved!
