Frost Radar™: Global Smart Thermostats Market, 2020

Frost Radar™: Global Smart Thermostats Market, 2020

Smart thermostats have changed the way home appliances are controlled for better living conditions. They learn about the heating and cooling preferences in a household and adjust settings automatically, and allow for access of real-time and historical data to optimize performance when a space is unoccupied.

The global smart thermostat market is on a growth trajectory. Revenue reached $2.03 billion in 2019; by 2025, Frost & Sullivan expects it to reach $4.81 billion, triggered by the penetration of smart home solutions and rising demand for energy- and cost-saving technologies. North America and Europe have been and will continue to be the top growth markets. Sales in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East will be concentrated in a few countries, including China, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates.

Manufacturers are developing home monitoring platforms (with smart thermostats as a central component) that can communicate with room sensors, security cameras, and door/window sensors to ensure occupant security. Market drivers include smart thermostats’ role in demand response and smart home automation devices, though cybersecurity and compatibility with legacy systems are persistent concerns.
