Increasing Geriatric Population is One of the Major Factors Driving the Smart Home Products Market

Mon, 30 November 2020 6:22

According to the research study by the World Health Organization, it is anticipated that the proportion of the worlds’ population aging over 60 years will double from about 11% to 22% between 2000 and 2050. The increasing geriatric population will further prompt the need for better healthcare. However, the healthcare expenditure in various countries is rising at an alarming rate. The cost associated with present-day healthcare services is increasing continuously due to the surging prices of prescription drugs, diagnostic tools, and in-clinic care. For instance, investments in healthcare sectors increased by a massive USD 11.5 billion in the 2017 budget of Ontario, Canada.

However, the millennial population has a penchant for technological advancements and is continuously moving towards smart products and devices. In contrast, the generation X and baby boomers are anticipated as not that much technologically advanced when compared to the millennial. The disconnection between the users and their experience with technology increases the smart home privacy issues and is one of the major factor which might hamper the growth of smart homes market.

Hardware segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the growing usage of hardware products in the smart homes market. Heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) is the largest source of residential energy consumption. The energy can be saved by turning off the HVAC systems when the residents are sleeping or away from the house. However, typical residents will not manually adjust the thermostat levels and programmable thermostats are too tricky for most people to use effectively.
