An exhaustive search of the public domain indicates that information on the projections/trends for the connected home market for the next five years in the US is non-existent, and media coverage on the specified topic is scarce. The most relevant media mentions on the topic include that in 2023, the global smart home market is expected to be $150.6 billion and in 2021, 28% of the US households will use the smart home technology. Below are our detailed methodology and deep findings.
We began our research by looking into research reports and industry articles on the connected home industry in the US. We looked into credible sources like Forbes, Money, Market Watch, Reuters, Markets and Markets, among others. While we could find the global market value, trends of the industry, the number of households in the US who use this technology, and the forecast of these households for the next two years, we could not find the specific US value, projected cost, or trends. Next, we broadened the research criteria to include global reports with the objective of finding enough data points to help us triangulate the market share the US represents and calculate its market value. We went through industry reports such as Persistence Market and the sources we used in the first strategy. From Persistence Market website, we could find that the US is the main market for connected homes, however, none of the other sources provides enough data points to help in calculating the US market percentage or its projected growth. Fortunately, these reports provided information on the connected home market trends, including trends in energy technology like lighting and thermostat on a global scale. With this information, we decided to use global trends in our findings below because we made an assumption that these trends would apply to the US connected home market as it's the main market on the globe. However, we could not triangulate the US market value due to for data. Finally, we locates some helpful insights on the connected home market in the world and the United States from these sources: the Persistence Market and Market Watch. However, we could not access the full reports because they are behind the paywall.
