Smart Speakers

A smart speaker is a kind of wireless speaker with an integrated virtual digital assistant that, upon receiving voice command from users, performs tasks such as seeking information (news, weather, etc.), playing music, online shopping or making phone calls. As the pioneer in the smart speaker market, Amazon Echo was first introduced to the U.S. market in 2015 and quickly became a hot gadget. As of June 2018, the installed base of Amazon Echo reached 35 million in the United States. Coming later to the smart speaker show, Google quickly caught up with its Google Home device, shipping 23.4 million units worldwide in 2018, only 0.8 million less than Amazon.

Chinese Smart Speaker Vendors

As latecomers, the Chinese smart speaker vendors surprised the market with their impressive shipment numbers, largely thanks to the huge Chinese domestic market. Alibaba, Baidu and Xiaomi are the three leading Chinese players in the smart speaker market, each shipping millions of units in the most recent quarter.
