Smart Homes market Disrupted by Advent of 4G LTE Network

A smart home can be described as a natural extension of the automation in all walks of human life. Owing to the growing concerns of energy efficiency and optimum utilization of resources for healthy lifestyles, the global smart homes market is projected for phenomenal growth. According to a market research report of IndustryARC, the global smart homes market size was around $70 billion to $75 billion in 2018, and the opportunities will be growing at healthy CAGR ranging from 10% to 14% during the forecast period 2019-2025. The advent of high speed 4G LTE wireless networks to support high-bandwidth M2M applications has become an important factor spurring the growth of the global smart homes market.

In a smart house, various systems such as humidifiers, smoke alarms, water detectors, and Yale locks can either be pre-programmed or altered from a remote location through connected devices. Smart homes use other concepts such as the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as WiFi to constantly keep track of changes and transmit relevant information to the user. As per the Telecommunication Engineering Centre, around 1,067 million smart homes installed connected devices based on IoT technology in 2017. Akin to that, the IndustryARC analysts pinpoint that home application of the global smart homes market is anticipated to grow with a notable CAGR of around 12% – 15% over the forecast period.

The analysts also state that North America is the most lucrative region, which held around 25% to 28% share in the global automation market in 2018. This notable demand share is due to various initiatives and subsidies provided by the government to encourage the people in this region to adopt various practices aligned with smart house technology. Energy conservation, integration with a smart grid, and control of water and gas are some of the areas which have received a lot of focus so far. This information is acquired from the report titled Smart Homes Market: By System Types (Security systems, HVAC, Lighting Control Systems, Entertainment); By Standards & Protocols (DALI, KNX, Wi-Fi, Zigbee, EnOcean), By Application & by Geography – Forecast (2019-2025).”
