Presence of a considerable number of large vendors makes the global smart home M2M market fragmented in nature. The players include platform providers, telecommunications operators, chip providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and device manufacturers. Stiff competition prevails among them.
Majorly fuelling the global smart home M2M market is the adoption of smart home security systems, which steal a march over manually operated traditional systems, with superior features such as text message based motion detection notifications, remote monitoring of residential property, and automatic opening of doors and windows when smoke alarm is sounded, among others.
Another factor stoking growth in the global smart home M2M market is the increasing sales of smart appliances such as vacuum cleaners, washing machines, HVAC systems, kitchen equipment, televisions, etc., lighting systems, and other connected consumer electronics.
Acting as a hindrance to the global smart home M2M market is the concerns over security breaches and compatibility issues with legacy systems. However, continued progress in technology will overcome the challenge and open up new opportunities for growth.
A report by Transparency Market Research forecasts the global smart home M2M market to rise at a robust 13.3% CAGR between 2017 and 2025 to reach a value of US$16.316 mn by 2025 from US$5.421 million in 2016.
