Market Dynamics

Market Drivers

Growing Adoption of Connected Devices and the Internet of Things (IoT)

Wireless connectivity is now being extended to many more devices, including those found in the home, allowing them to collect and share data in much the same way as mobile phones and tablets. The Internet of Things (IoT) helps to connect people and devices via the internet. Many smart appliances have transitioned due to the growing popularity of IoT, which integrates digital and wireless technology. In addition, IoT is influencing a lot of vendors associated with the field of technology.

According to a report from the USENIX association, there were around 83 million IoT devices in 16 million homes worldwide as of 2019. In several regions, most homes now have at least one networked IoT device. Moreover, according to Congressional Research Service, active IoT devices will grow from 9.9 billion in 2019 to 21.5 billion in 2025. While non-IoT device connections will continue to increase, IoT devices will be about two-thirds of those connections by 2025, up from about one-third in 2019. The rise in internet penetration is also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Rising Demand for Energy-Efficient Home Appliances

The growing concerns regarding higher electricity consumption and the lookout for energy-efficient alternatives will drive the growth of the smart appliances market. Smart appliances are designed and developed to use energy more efficiently by connecting them with smart grids and automatically scheduling the work cycles using time-based electricity programs to ensure the appliance operates during off-peak hours when energy prices are cheaper. Smart appliances come with future-oriented smart grid capabilities that could support a more reliable, less polluting electric grid.

Furthermore, smart appliances automatically adjust their work cycle time with incorporated sensors to help consumers reduce their energy usage. For instance, smart washing machines have a feature that automatically shuts off the appliance when the clothes inside it are washed. In addition, the prices of appliances are also decreasing as they become more energy efficient. The initiatives taken by several governments to curb carbon emissions by lowering energy consumption are driving the adoption of energy-efficient smart appliances.

Market Restraint

High Cost of Smart Appliances

The cost of appliances is one of the significant factors considered before buying. Both in developed and developing nations, a sizable portion of the population examines the price of products before making a purchase. The average price of smart appliances ranges from USD 300 to USD 2,000. On the other hand, conventional home appliances are available at a starting price of about USD 100. Owing to this high-cost factor, it becomes difficult for manufacturers to convince consumers to upgrade their regular washing machines with the smart connected variety. Moreover, the installation cost, coupled with the additional costs, discourages consumers from adopting smart appliances.

Market Opportunities

Rapid Technological Advancement in the Smart Home Appliances

The need for convenience is one of the most important factors that necessitate the development of products that can reduce manual labor. Several futuristic technologies help make home appliances more efficient and convenient. The Internet of Things (IoT) growth has aided the adoption of cutting-edge appliancesIoT helps connect appliances such as washing machines to other devices that can be controlled. For instance, the new QuickDrive™ washing machine from Samsung can be connected to the smartphone, enabling consumers to check the progress and schedule wash cycles.

Furthermore, many appliances use machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and other technologies capable of thinking, making decisions, and learning. Additionally, the development of the 5G network is expected to connect smart devices more easily and quickly than the current network. A 5G network allows appliances to work wirelessly while consuming minimal power. Such technological advancements are expected to boost the global smart appliances market.

Segmental Analysis

The global smart appliances market is segmented by technology, product type, and end-user.

Based on technology, the global market is divided into Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and near field communication. 

The Wi-Fi segment is responsible for the largest market share and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.91% over the forecast period. The use of Wi-Fi technology to control home systems on smartphones will become a vital part of people's lives with the continuous maturity of Wi-Fi technology and the increasing progress of smart homes. Network users can move around without restriction when using Wi-Fi technology and access the network almost anywhere. Wi-Fi technology also provides a cost-effective network setup for hard-to-wire locations like old buildings. However, since Wi-Fi uses RF technology, the air is used as a medium to transmit and receive data. Further, signals transmitted through radio waves are easily disturbed by external environments, and the security could be higher, so they are unsuitable for smart home control systems requiring high protection.

The introduction of Bluetooth technology eliminated the requirement for wired connections. Bluetooth technology brings intelligence to home appliances through smartphones for 24/7 control of energy consumption, and it automatically switches off the power to provide electrical safety at home. The user needs to keep the Bluetooth on, and they can control the systems with their smartphone app. In addition, Bluetooth technology is perfect for home appliances with mechanical on/off switches, such as floor lamps, TV, fans, coffeemakers, slow cookers, and others.
