The facilities management market in Poland is highly fragmented and competitive, served by a strong base of international and domestic service providers, observes Transparency Market Research in a recent report. Key facilities management companies with their operations spread across the globe collectively held a share of 47.3% in the Poland market in 2015. In the same year, notable service providers in the facilities management arena with their services confined within the country accounted for the rest.
Competition in the market is chiefly based on the cost and scope of the services being offered, both of which have significantly intensified owing to the large number of service providers. As a result, service providers have been focusing more on expanding their offerings and increasing the chances of extending present contracts. Some of market’s key vendors are Sodexo, Inc., Bilfinger HSG Facility Management GmbH, Impel Tech Solutions, and Cushman & Wakefield.
Services across Corporate Sector to Lead to Promising Returns
Transparency Market Research states that the Poland market for facilities management will exhibit a remarkable 9.7% CAGR over the period between 2016 and 2023. As a result, the market, which valued at US$14.34 bn in 2015, is expected to hold an opportunity of US$32.62 bn by 2024. Of the key end-use sectors employing facilities management services, the corporate sector accounts is the leading revenue contributor to the Poland facilities management market and is expected to account for a nearly 19% of the market in 2016. In terms of type of services, the segment of soft services dominates and is expected to account for a nearly 60% of the Poland market in 2016.
Rising Adoption of Outsourced Services to Bode Well for Market Growth
The Poland facilities management market is primarily driven due to the vast rise in demand for outsourced services to manage and increase productivity across the corporate, manufacturing, retail, and industrial sectors. The increased adoption of outsourced facilities management services across these sectors in Poland is expected to have a medium impact on the growth of the market in the short and medium term of the forecast period but high impact in the long term. This is expected to be a result of the rising penetration of Poland-based outsourced facilities management services in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
Owing to high competition across almost all sectors, businesses are emphasizing on the enhancement of performance and quality of their core services. The practice of seeking certifications for business activities and practices has also significantly increased in Poland the past few years. Consequently, an increasing number of businesses are shifting towards facilities management services outsourcing to support and increase the standardization of core services. This is expected to increase business collaborations with facilities management services internationally as well, leading to a rise in international contracts for support services.
Preference to In-house Service Implementation to Hamper Market Growth
Lack of awareness regarding the benefits of effective management of facilities to the overall revenues of a business and preference to in-house facility management services are the key factors hampering the growth of the Poland facilities management market. In-house facilities management services are mostly preferred across sectors where the provision of facilities management services requires the resources to build skill and knowledge for improved customer service.
The Poland market for facilities management is also expected to be hampered by the potential rise in labor costs, which reflects directly in the overall cost of a facilities management project. This factor could also be a potential factor stimulating companies on establishment of facilities management departments in house to support their core services.
