“The proactive type software and services segment to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.”
Proactive type software and services facilitate the transmission of data, along with the best possible solutions, to end-users for actions to be taken after receiving the information. The proactive type enables the transfer of a larger volume of data than the behavioral type; it can provide inputs to end-users regarding effective energy usage and required actions on the physical parameters to reduce energy consumption.
Proactive solutions are more beneficial than the behavioral type as they can also send recommendation signals to end-users to take necessary actions to reduce energy consumption. Moreover, based on the user’s actions, measures to control electronic devices can be implemented. Due to these advantages, the market for proactive type software and services is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.
