Market Overview

The smart homes market was valued at USD 79.13 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 313.95 billion by 2026 and register a CAGR of 25.3% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Home automation and smart homes are the two ambiguous terms used in reference to a wide range of solutions for monitoring, controlling, and automating functions in a home. The smart home system requires a smartphone application or web portal as a user interface to interact with an automated system. The scope of this study includes an analysis of the devices that switches, timers, sensors can control, and remote controllers, apart from other control devices.

  • The increasing importance of the need to counter security issues is anticipated to fuel up the demand growth for smart and connected homes over the forecast period.
  • Moreover, the introduction of innovative wireless technologies, including HVAC controllers, security and access regulators, and entertainment controls, is expected to foster market growth.
  • Furthermore, the recent advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) that resulted in price drops of sensors and processors are expected to encourage manufacturers to promote automation in the household sector.

Scope of the Report

A smart home is a suitable home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled distantly from any internet-connected place in the world using a mobile or other networked device. A smart home has its devices connected through the internet, and the customer can regulate functions such as security access to the house, temperature, lighting, and home theater.

Key Market Trends

Smart HVAC Systems is the among the Most Significant Contributors to the Market

  • The smart HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) systems are critical with respect to the environmental controls around the house. They comprise smart thermites, sensors, control valves, smart actuators, air conditioning systems, and smart room heaters, among other systems. Across the world, owing to the increasing government regulations across developed and developing countries, most of the new buildings need smarter heating and cooling systems, thus, augmenting the growth of HVAC systems.
  • However, modern-day customers want products without limitations of HVAC systems but also demand integration of various solutions in the same suite. This particularly includes energy management. This trend implies that players in the market need to either implement functions that they previously considered out of their segment or at least provide the possibility to connect other products to the platform/ecosystem easily.
  • Automated heater controls mostly to address the energy savings motive. The demand for efficient heating equipment has led to the increasing demand for automated heater controls, thereby making it one of the most significant contributors to the global HVAC equipment market. The heating equipment cost-effectively provides the required heating environment.

North America Leads in the Smart Home Market

  • Smart homes are on the rise, with nearly 30 million US households projected to add smart home technology in the near future. The products consumers are looking to add to their homes include connected cameras (highest demand), video doorbells (2nd highest demand), connected light bulbs, smart locks, and smart speakers of late.
  • Security-focused smart home products are in demand, as family safety was voted as a significant motivator for adopting smart home technology in a recent survey. However, the biggest driver for the market was consumers adopting smart home technology like smart lighting solutions, energy management solutions to simplify their lives with greater convenience.
  • In January 2017, Eero, a company based out of San Francisco that offers Wi-Fi systems for smart homes and aiming to be the gateway to the entire connected future, released the Eero Beacon that plugs straight into an outlet. Along with Beacon, Eero released new routers that run twice as fast as the old ones in terms of connectivity and offering internet speeds, plus new software that lets the router control and secures all the connected devices in a smart home.
  • One in six Americans now owns a smart speaker, a figure that’s up 128% from January 2017. It is estimated that 16% of Americans own a smart speaker or around 39 million people. According to a recent survey, customers use Amazon Echo for many purposes, with one-third using it as an information provider responding to questions and over 40% as an audio speaker for listening to streaming music.
