The integrated facility management (IFM) market in Europe is the fastest growing segment of the overall facility management (FM) industry. It is growing at the expense of the single service and bundled service segments. Currently, integrated facility management is going through a state of transformation, which is driven by technology innovation, new business models, emerging value propositions, and creative new service offerings alongside a more long-term trend of service integration and internationalisation.
The IFM market is expected to see healthy growth throughout the forecast period. However, expectations will be kept in check by fierce competition and maturing of key markets such as the United Kingdom. The IFM market in Europe is one of the most developed and mature markets in the world and has a highly competitive international supply base. In many countries, services are commoditising and organic growth is hard to find. Therefore, companies need to innovate in order to ensure continued growth and profitability.
The industry will continue to move towards service integration and sophisticated advisory services focussed on business productivity. Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity will continue. This study provides an in-depth understanding of the growth opportunities in the European IFM market in the wake of these transformations.
