Advantages of Saving Valuable Employees’ Time Boosts Uptake
Increasing practices of outsourcing services is primarily driving the North America facilities management market. Businesses are increasingly engaging third-party contractors to outsource facility management for a certain period of time. This helps businesses to focus on core business functions and save valuable time of resources from being used for non-core business activities. Thus, outsourcing helps reduce costs and expenses of businesses in the long run. The demand for facilities management is witnessing an upswing across several industry verticals such as healthcare, government, government, and corporate among others.
Furthermore, increasing demand for standardization of support services is boosting the adoption of facilities management services. Businesses are recognizing the importance of quality support services that makes a mark among clients, which may indirectly boost business growth. Large businesses are increasingly collaborating with world-class facilities management service providers that maintain quality standards and take onus in the event of subpar or poor service rendered.
Lack of Quality Standards Globally Limits Adoption
However, the market could suffer from several growth challenges. Nonexistence of standardization leading to lack of parameters to quantify performance and quality of services is a roadblock to the market’s growth. Quality and service standards are region specific with lack of standardization standards at global level. While different countries have recognized agencies that have set standards for standardization of services, there does not exist a single agency that monitors standardization of services globally.
Apart from this, increasing labor cost and increasing practices of developing in-house services are bottlenecks to the growth of facilities management market. Facilities management service providers are facing challenges of increasing labor costs during the tenure of long-term service contracts. Consequently, organizations are opting for short-term contracts or single contract thereby impacting the growth of facilities management market.
Moreover, due to nonexistence of quality standards, several organizations are forming their own in-house services by hiring personnel to be exclusively engaged in support services.
The review presented here is based on the findings of a TMR report, titled “Facilities Management Market (Service Type - Hard Services (Plumbing, Air Conditioning Maintenance, Fire Protection Systems, and Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance) and Soft Services (Cleaning and Pest Control, Laundry, Catering, Waste Management, and Security); Industry - Corporate, Government and Public, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Residential and Educational, and Retail and Commercial) - North America Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 – 2024.”
