COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19 Pandemic to Boost Market Growth

COVID-19 has interrupted regular life and caused individuals, organizations, and governments to modify their policies, priorities, and actions. These developments are acting as a stimulus for technological advancement and innovation. However, in recent years, the home automation business has grown rapidly, a trend aided in part by COVID-19 and the fact that people have been forced to spend more time in their homes owing to lockdown restrictions. As a result, more vendors have entered the industry. The market has developed and now covers a wide variety of midrange and entry-level, low-cost home automation products, the availability of which has increased due to factors such as more businesses joining the market and a higher proportion of online and internet sales.

Further, as more people work/study from home, numerous IoT gadgets are projected to offer a more comfortable work/study environment during and post-pandemic. Home would have a distinct meaning for consumers in the post-covid world: it would be a space for work, entertainment, and study. As a result, families are increasingly seeking products and solutions that make life more comfortable, meaningful, and provide a higher quality of life. These dynamics have opened up a vast market for home furnishings and smart home solutions and is likely to drive the market growth.

  • For instance, In August 2021, Schneider Electric and Livspace, home interiors and renovation platform, announced a partnership. The partnership aims to create smarter houses for the future. This alliance will use Schneider Electric's superior home automation technology and Livspace's interior design experience to revolutionize the Indian home interiors market.

Increasing Adoption of Home Automation Technologies to Propel Market Growth

Traditional home systems were developed to work with a limited amount of connectivity. Users were also limited to operating systems inside a certain range. However, the rise of smart home technology is opening up a world of possibilities. It has taken use of connectivity to provide owners with remote access to their homes. According to Investopedia, globally, there are an estimated 175 million smart homes. The latest application trend combines A.I. and automation to provide domestic assistance in an innovative and new way. These most recent innovations ensure sophisticated technical gadgets as well as security. Smart houses have installed video door alarms, facial recognition devices, ultra-modern burglar alarms, and remote-controlled locks as some of the most popular security options.


Increased Adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions to Boost Market Expansion

The IoT platform is one of the most significant global economic drivers for the smart home market growth. At home, IoT-based equipment provides energy-saving features. According to GSMA Intelligence, the IoT connections are expected to reach approx. 25 billion globally by 2025, up from 10.3 billion in 2018. This factor shows that within some years, there would be massive clusters of sensors, devices, and things that would communicate through high-speed technology such as 5G. Such a growing proliferation of the internet of things devices is likely to drive the market towards a higher growth trajectory.

Key firms are concentrating their efforts on the development of IoT platforms and related technology (Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and so on) that may be employed in smart home goods. According to a report published by Bosch in May 2021, 10 million products in 2020, – including power tools, residential appliances, and heating systems – were already connected. By the end of 2021, that number will have nearly doubled. Bosch is aiming to establish a strong position in the smart product's market for connected security and climate-control solutions by making the home even more user-friendly. Thus, the growth in IoT adoption will certainly help to boost the global market in the near future.


High Security Threats to Hamper Market Growth

The significant obstacle to market expansion is the rising cyberattack in high-end connected technology. Smart home technology faces the risk of security threats from all the connected endpoints. As intelligent technology is connected to every system and device in the home, hackers can gain confidential and personal information if it is not secured properly. According to Rambus Incorporated, a designer, developer and licenser of chip interface technologies, approximately 80% of IoT devices are vulnerable to a number of assaults. Connecting historically "standalone" smart devices like lights, appliances, and locks clearly brings lots of new cyber security concerns. Even connected baby monitors are vulnerable to digital intruders, as a number of frightened parents discovered after hackers communicated with their young children via a hacked device. This is expected to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
