Proptech Funds Invest $4 Billion Across The Smart Building Sector In 2020
This report helps technology firms and investors across the smart building sector better understand proptech funding trends in 2020. From January to November 2020, proptech funds invested $4 billion across six technology areas: construction, commercial property management, residential property, retail management, operational management, and workplace management. Funding levels were down on 2019 levels as the COVID-19 pandemic and global recession disrupted deal-making activity and as investors focused efforts on supporting their existing portfolios. Going forward, we predict that a vaccine rollout will support a proptech investment rebound in 2021 and that green buildings will return as a focal point for proptech investment, fuelled by cost-saving potential and policy. Technology providers should use this report to better understand the disruptive propositions coming to market that aim to challenge traditional market players.
