Analyst Opinion

The Control and Connectivity segment includes the essential equipment, that is part of an intelligent home network (hubs, switches, smart speakers, plugs). The segment is clearly dominated by smart speakers. With the arrival of Amazon’s Echo, the whole digital economy including the smart home market was disrupted. Competition followed and reduced Amazons market share, especially from Asia where Xiomi, Alibaba and Baidu are developing smart speaker systems. There is no doubt that smart speakers will foster growth in the market, since they are the number one entry-level product for consumers. However, we believe that not all use cases will include voice control in the future. Moreover, there will be more smart displays, such as Echo Show or Google Nest Hub.
