Booming market of energy-efficient buildings and development of smart cities driven by information technology
The Chinese government’s efforts in promoting green buildings and energy-efficient buildings have created higher demand for electrical engineering, intelligent building and smart home markets. According to the latest statistics provided by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People's Republic of China (MOHURD) in January 2017, the energy consumed by the building industry continues to rise, contributing to 33% of the total national energy consumption. This provides ample business opportunities for the energy-efficient building market. "Outline of the 13th Five-Year Plan for the Housing and Urban-Rural Development” initiated by MOHURD states that 50% of all new urban developments should be made up of green buildings by 2020.
Due to the development of information technology, urban residents have higher expectations on green buildings and intelligent buildings, which leads to growing demand for smart city services. One of the major trends is transforming the traditional building industry by internet, mobile network and IoT technologies. According to planning and deployment laid out by related government ministries, commissions and local governments, the number of planned smart cities is expected to exceed 500 by 2017. As the pace of smart city construction accelerates at different levels, it is estimated that the market will expand vigorously.
China is making a greater push for green buildings and energy-efficient buildings, electrical engineering, intelligent buildings and smart home. These developments, coupled with the growing needs for intelligent buildings, make for a promising market with huge opportunities. GEBT continues to dedicate itself to revealing the latest industry development and innovative technologies.
