Palm Beach, FL – September 6, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The smart homes market has been growing in recent years and is projected to continue for years to come. Smart homes are designed to automate various household appliances and electronics using an in-built monitoring system, thereby offering convenience, safety, efficiency, and security to the residents. The single interface system can monitor and control lighting, security, temperature, and audio/video systems. Security is a major focus of smart homes, and advanced security systems can notify homeowners of intrusions and provide room-by-room surveillance even when they are away. Access control systems play a crucial role in ensuring the security of residential areas. As a result of their high efficiency and sophistication, home automation and control systems are being increasingly used in smart homes to enhance security. According to a report from MarketsAndMarkets the Global Smart Home Market report size is projected to grow from USD 101.7 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to USD 163.7 billion by 2028; growing at compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% from 2023 to 2028. The report said: “The importance of home monitoring in remote locations, and growing need for energy-saving and low carbon emission-oriented solutions are responsible to drive market growth during the forecast period.

MarketsAndMarkets continued: “Proactive software and services (are projected) to register highest CAGR during forecast period Proactive software and services facilitate the transmission of energy consumption data to end users, along with the best possible solutions to be implemented. The market for proactive software is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The smart kitchen segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the growing preference for modular kitchens and the rise in disposable income among consumers in developing economies. Due to changes in lifestyles and increased time spent outside the home, the significance of a smart kitchen has risen. Additionally, the growing number of internet, smartphone, and tablet users has made it easier for users to monitor their appliances using their mobile devices, which is particularly appealing to those with busy lifestyles. Kitchen renovation activities have also increased substantially, particularly in developing economies, with a growing preference for modular kitchens.”
