Global Remote Market 2016-2020

About Remote

Remotes/remote controls are devices used to wirelessly operate electronic gadgets such as TVs (including smart TVs), set-top boxes, and gaming consoles from a short line-of-sight distance. Users typically use a remote to adjust various settings such as tracking number and volume. There are two popular types of remote controls mostly used by customers: IR remotes and RF remotes.

IR remotes are the most common type of remotes used by customers globally, while RF is emerging as an effective remote technology. IR remotes control the functions of electronic gadgets by sending pulses of infrared light to a device with carrier frequency of around 38 kHz. RF remotes use radio waves in much the same way. These remotes do not require line of sight, which makes them easier to use.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global remote market to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Remote Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Remote Market: Logitech, Philips, Remote Solutions and Universal Electronics

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BesCon Electronics, Crestron Electronics, Ruwido, SMK Electronics, and Universal Remote Control.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “IR remotes dominate the market for most consumer electronic devices. Market vendors are increasingly investing in R&D. Some of the major technologies that have emerged for remotes include RF, ZigBee RF4CE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Of these emerging technologies, RF is gaining more popularity with smart TV and gaming console manufacturers.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers of the market is rising sales of smart TVs. Smart TVs are becoming more popular with their enhanced features. Since the introduction of the first smart TV by Sony jointly with Google in 2010, internet TV has witnessed immense popularity among consumers. As demand for remotes increases from OEM, this will also have an impact on aftermarket sales as the lifecycle of smart TV remotes is shorter than those available with the purchase of consumer electronic devices.

Further, the report states that universal remotes are gaining more importance because of their enhanced capabilities and functionalities. Universal remotes can be used for many consumer electronic devices and are multi-functional in nature, eliminating the need for remotes for each device. This presents a potential challenge for the vendors and the market at large.
