Smart Home Hardware Market

The digital revolution has transformed practically every area of individuals' lives, including how they live, with gadgets that make houses smarter. As people continue to integrate technology into every aspect of their lives, the idea of having a home that directly interacts with its occupants no longer seems as far-fetched as it was a decade ago.. The global smart home hardware market is predicted to grow due to increase in disposable income and rise in demand for high-end energy-consuming products. The rising need for smart sensors, switches, and relays, among other smart devices, is accelerating the adoption of advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Near-field communication (NFC). Emerging smart city initiatives all around the world are also driving the growth of the smart home hardware business. The primary drivers of the smart home hardware market include increased purchasing power, increased investment in infrastructure construction, technological advancements, and government backing.

However, there are a few major constraints impacting the smart home hardware market share. The primary challenge is the higher cost of integrating cutting-edge technology at the home. The inclusion of wireless cameras, light sensors, central touch displays, and automated systems raises the property's worth dramatically, putting it out of reach for some potential buyers. The cost of incorporating smart home automation hardware tends to be more expensive as it is relatively new concept. The cost of purchasing and installing the necessary hardware can be significant, especially for those on a tight budget or looking to remodel an existing home. This affordability barrier is projected to limit the widespread adoption of smart home hardware market growth.

The smart home hardware industry is becoming more automated and digitalized. The various startups involved in smart home automation technology are exploring new solutions to provide homeowners with the best home experience while maintaining safety. Some important smart home hardware trends include smart home connectivity, smart home security, and next-generation entertainment. Many smart home users use robotics to automate monotonous tasks in their daily lives. For instance, many startups are developing new intelligent home control and operating systems that will establish communication between smart home devices. Wireless communication creates a network of in-home gadgets, transforming the ordinary house into a connected one. Smart home equipment that uses communication networking technologies automatically collaborates and serves as an environment that consists of a number of gadgets and devices used in smart home hardware, which are connected via communication networking technologies, and work collectively in a coordinated manner to create an interconnected system. The various startups in the smart home hardware market are offering a variety of controlled solutions, such as wireless mesh networking, communication technologies, and wireless protocols. For instance, in March 2022, SPARK, a Canada-based firm, developed a high-bandwidth wireless technology with ultra-low power consumption and latency. The capacity of smart home technology to work together as an ecosystem promotes highly demanded applications such as wireless virtual reality (VR) and the Internet of Things (IoT). These cutting-edge technologies are critical to the proper operation of smart homes. When combined with energy harvesting technologies used in smart homes, SPARKS' technology dramatically increases the battery life of gadgets and enables the battery-free functioning of wireless devices such as sensors. These factors are anticipated to boost the smart home hardware market opportunity.

Smart Home Hardware Market by Product Type

By product type, the security & surveillance sub-segment dominated the market in 2022. Security & surveillance systems have become more sophisticated with the progress in intelligent home technology like intelligent doorbells, intelligent lighting, and surveillance cameras. For instance, intelligent doorbell devices not only notify homeowners when there is someone at their doorstep but also enable them to recognize and communicate with unknown individuals before granting entry. Moreover, intelligent surveillance cameras can be activated by motion and remotely accessed, enabling homeowners to supervise their properties in real time. These systems also provide immediate alerts regarding any suspicious activity or unauthorized efforts to access entrances or windows. Another benefit of intelligent security systems is their ability to continue monitoring and issuing alarms even when deactivated, unlike conventional home security systems. The advanced capabilities offered by these modern technologies simplify the task of homeowners managing and safeguarding their homes from a remote location, providing them with increased peace of mind while they are away from home. These are the major factors projected to drive the segment growth during the forecast period.
