According to the new market research report “Home Automation System Market by Protocol and Technology (Network and Wireless), Product (Lighting, Security and Access Control, HVAC and Entertainment Control), Software and Algorithm (Behavioral and Proactive), and Geography – Global Forecast to 2022“, published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Home automation market is expected to grow from USD 39.93 billion in 2016 to USD 79.57 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period.
Home automation refers to the automation and security of home and household activities. It may be used for isolated programmable devices, e.g., thermostats and sprinkler systems. But, home automation precisely describes homes in which lights, appliances, electrical outlets, heating and cooling systems, and others are connected to a remotely accessible network. Thus, Home automation systems enable power savings and also helps in enhancing the standards of living.
The home automation systems have also been classified on the basis of protocol & technology into network technology, protocol & standards, and wireless technology. The home automation system market has been segmented on the basis of product into lighting control, security and access control, HVAC control, entertainment control products, and others. The market is segmented on the basis software and algorithms into behavioral and proactive type and on the basis of geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World.
The lighting control market to grow at the highest CAGR during 2017–2022
The lighting control market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The market for lighting control is expected to grow at a higher rate because it reduces the electricity consumption in homes as the sensors adjust the intensity of artificial light according to the intensity of natural light. Moreover, the growing environmental concerns have helped spread awareness regarding the importance of home automation and home energy management measures. As a result of this scenario, lighting controllers now play a vital role in reducing the electricity consumption within the household, along with offering comfort to the users.
The Home automation market by proactive solutions to grow at the highest rate during forecast period.
By software and algorithm type, proactive solutions expected to grow with the highest CAGR during forecast period. The proactive solutions are specifically designed to enable consumers to understand energy patterns and take effective measures to reduce their consumption. Some of the advanced algorithms can also ask the end user to send the feedback across regarding whether the recommendations sent by the proactive solutions were true and useful. This enables the user and service companies to test the functionality and reliability of the home automation systems.
