Canadian Consumer Connected Mobility and Connected Home Devices Install Base Forecast, 2017–2021

This IDC study examines the active consumer install base for connected mobility and connected home devices in Canada for 2017–2021 and addresses the current state of this market in Canada."As more connected home technologies from science fiction of yesteryear become todays reality, IDC Canada believes that, in the short term, Canadian consumers will be drawn to certain 'connected' devices in the hope to solve siloed needs and wants. If connected devices are managed and marketed smartly and strategically, hardware and software vendors as well as communication service providers (CSPs) stand to benefit as we expect the number of devices in the home to increase," say Manish Nargas, analyst for Consumer Services and Mobility, and Emily Taylor, senior analyst for Consumer Services and Mobility. "While whole home IoT may remain be a utopian dream, IDC Canada believes that the number of consumer connected devices in the home will grow by almost 60% by 2021."
