Global Smart Connected Baby Monitors Market 2017-2021

About Smart Connected Baby Monitors

Baby monitors, also known as baby alarms. They are devices used to transmit audio and video to a receiver to keep a tab on the activities of infants in case parents are not around. A basic baby monitor works by using a radio transmitter, wherein the sound produced by the baby is transferred to a receiver. The receiver contains an inbuilt speaker, which enables listeners to hear the baby from various locations, within a certain range. When a baby monitor connects to an app through a network connection or Wi-Fi, it is called smart connected baby monitor. The apps of the smart connected baby monitor are compatible with iOS and Android operating systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global smart connected baby monitors market to grow at a CAGR of 28.38% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Connected Baby Monitors Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart connected baby monitors market: iBaby Labs, Koninklijke Philips, Motorola Mobility, Summer Infant, and VTech Holdings.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ComfortCam, Foscam, FLIR Lorex, Medisana, Mattel, Nest Labs (DropCam), Panasonic, WiFi Baby, and Nokia.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is availability of smart baby monitors with sleep-tracking feature. The use of smart baby monitors with sleep-tracking feature is expected to become a rising trend during the forecast period. The vendors are also coming up with smart baby monitors with sleep-tracking feature. Nanit, Motorola Smart Nursery 7, and Knit are some of the smart baby monitors that track sleeping patterns of babies. For instance, Nanit sends notifications to parents when their baby wakes up. It also detects the movements of the infants and notifies parents when the baby wakes up. This device is also able to detect sleep movements versus waking movements.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing awareness regarding the safety of the baby while parents do household activities. Growing number of parents demand baby monitors that assure the safety of the baby when they are not being attended. This is one of the key factors for the adoption of smart baby monitors. Parents are unable to attend their children while doing household activities. The use of smart baby monitors enables parents to do all the necessary chores without losing the ability to watch over their infants. These devices also allow parents to have access to the whereabouts of their infants from remote locations of the house, thereby assuring safety and swift prevention of potential accidents.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is App interface issues in smart connected baby monitors. All smart connected baby monitors work on 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi and can be connected to sensors. Issues with sensor connectivity can lead to a disconnection between the app and smart baby monitor. In such situations, parents are unable to detect the device and have to wait till connectivity issues get resolved. Some parents also face problems with the Wi-Fi and firmware updates. Users have to wait and continuously refresh the app till they find the device on their smartphones. A sudden crash of app is also a key factor that can trigger connectivity issues between the smartphone and the smart baby monitor.
