Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “A major trend witnessed in the Global Smart Housing Equipment market is the increased availability of self-help applications. Companies that provide smart housing equipment solutions are nowadays increasingly introducing user-friendly programming platforms that are used to deploy several self-help applications. This helps further automate smart homes and improves their serviceability. Distinct programming helps end-users set controls to be switched on or off at specified times, thereby minimizing the need for human interference. These options are created through simple programming and require little prior training or expertise. This is one of the major positive trends observed in the Global Smart Housing Equipment market.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increase in the deployment of smart grids. Smart grids include the integration of various smart technologies at the consumer end to the power grid, a few of which are smart housing equipment too. For instance, various smart housing equipment that are part of smart grids include smart meters, photovoltaic, small wind generator systems, energy storage systems, and HEMSs. As a result, the increase in adoption of smart grid in turn will increase the growth of the Global Smart Housing Equipment market in the future.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is that smart housing equipment is expensive when compared to conventional housing equipment. This makes it difficult for households to adopt this technology as the initial investment required is huge, even offsetting the future savings facilitated by smart housing equipment. This will in turn adversely affect growth of the market in the future.
