The Smart Home market constitutes the sale of networked devices and related services that enable home automation for private end users (B2C). Considered are devices that are connected directly or indirectly via a so-called gateway to the Internet. Their main purposes are the control, monitoring and regulation of functions in a private household.

The remote control and monitoring of individual devices and, if applicable, their direct communication with one another (Internet of Things), is an essential component of intelligent home automation. Therefore, services which are necessary for the maintenance or control of the household network are also considered, e.g. subscription fees for control apps or external monitoring services.

Devices whose primary function is not the automation or remote control of household equipment, e.g. smartphones and tablets, are not included here. Similarly, devices that relate to household connection and remote control only to a limited extent, such as smart TVs, are not included either.
in-scope
  • Digitally connected and controlled devices within a house that can be remote controlled
  • Sensors, actuators and cloud services that support automation in any way
  • Control hubs to connect sensors and actuators with remote controls and to each other
  • B2C hardware and software sales as well as subscription fees
out-of-scope
  • Smart TVs
  • B2B/C2C sales of any kind (e.g. to hotels or office buildings)

Analyst Opinion

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the hot topics when it comes to digitization and disruptive changes to traditional industries. Applying the IoT in the context of a private household is what is commonly known as a smart home. The smart-home ecosystem is continuing its rapid expansion, but market growth rates are directly linked to the speed of 5G implementation. Recent IoT investments by Google, Apple, Amazon or Alibaba have changed the landscape noticeably, providing opportunities for all kinds of companies, but have also forced market consolidation. Considering the current moderate user penetration, long product replacement cycles and increasing device connectivity, adoption will steadily grow in the next years.
