A toilet seat is an essential sanitization requirement and a vital component for bathrooms, providing a comfortable experience for the users. The toilet seat market is expected to witness robust growth due to ever-increasing housing demand. The industry focus is shifting to electronic toilet seats from non-electronic toilets seats over the past period. Japan is one of the leading manufacturers of high-tech smart toilet seats globally, which experience strong demand from other countries such as China and the U.S. There are several built-in features in modern smart toilet seats, including the automatic dryer and the heated seat, which capture greater consumer traction across smart homes.
