Also known as FM, Facilities Management includes a range of disciplines and services to ensure the functionality, comfort, well-being, safety and productivity of a built environment - buildings and grounds, infrastructure and real estate. FM is classified into two categories - Hard Facilities Management Services and Soft Facilities Management Services. Hard FM deals with physical assets such as plumbing, heating and cooling, elevators. Soft FM focuses on tasks performed by people such as custodial services, lease accounting, catering, security, grounds keeping.

Supported by associations such as TELMA and APSA, the virtual show will bring together local and global manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, service providers and decision-makers from various facilities management verticals looking to market or procure latest products and services. It will facilitate career development, networking, and sourcing cost-effective solutions in sectors ranging from office design and maintenance to smart energy and lighting. With new technologies such as green energy management and smart buildings creating a wealth of opportunities, the show will give professionals access to education and thought leadership so they can engage with a constantly shifting landscape.

Speaking on the launch of the Facilities Show India in the virtual format, Mr. Yogesh Mudras,  Managing Director, Informa Markets in India said, "The Facilities Management industry is all about maximizing returns on investments. Companies across the world are recurrently shifting their focus to maximize their assets, improve customer relations, and redefine their workspaces to be more pleasing and productive, as well as decreasing their carbon footprint. The show will bridge the knowledge gap and offer you many insights of facilities management that are yet awaited to be touched upon." Speaking on the announcement of the show and the industry, Mr. Peter Ankerstjerne, Global Lead, FM & Experience Services JLL & Chairman of the Board IFMA said, "There has never been a better time for facility management professionals to demonstrate leadership. Our industry is playing a critical role in rebuilding our businesses and communities with an emphasis on sustainability and well-being. COVID-19 forced fundamental questions about the way we live and work. This virtual exhibition and e-conference is an effort to cater to market changes, address challenges and chalk out the strategy forward while providing a platform to connect, network and grow."

According to a recent industry report, the Facilities Management industry in India is dominated by in-house segment; however, these services are increasingly being outsourced. The growing demand for integrated facility management is also driving the industry growth. While, currently, the industry is highly fragmented and is dominated by unorganised small operators, with larger players increasingly acquiring smaller players, the industry is projected to become more organised in the coming years.

Information Classification: General Corporate offices like IT, BPO, and BFSI sectors are rapidly shifting towards outsourcing their services, thus, driving the industry growth in India. The industry is primarily concentrated in Tier 1 and metro cities. Pune and Mumbai are expected to witness significant growth within the industry. Globally, too, the industry is growing rapidly, driven by the rising outsourcing of services by companies. The industry is also being supported by the growing demand for integrated facilities management in the Asia Pacific region. The Asia Pacific region is also the fastest-growing region for the industry, driven by the growing economies like India and China. The rapidly rising population in these regions is also boosting the market growth.
