Smart Thermostat Market by Component , Network Connectivity (Wired, Wireless), Application (Residential, Office Building, Industrial Building, Educational Institutional, Retail, Hospitality, and Healthcare), and Geography - Forecast to 2020
Smart thermostats are automation devices connected with HVAC systems to control the heating and cooling systems within an area. Thermostats have been in use since 1885, but with the introduction of programmable thermostats in 1906, their usage has increased. A typical smart thermostat includes a display unit, motion sensor, temperature sensor, humidity sensor, and other components which include ring and wiring of the smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats are costly as compared to conventional thermostats; therefore, at present, the market size of smart thermostats is not very large. However, in the coming years it is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 31.82% between 2015 and 2020. The high energy saving and decrease in energy wastage offered by these devices has led to increased awareness among consumers, which has boosted its adoption in recent times. North America held the major share in the smart thermostat market in 2014. However, the European market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The key players in this market include Nest Labs (U.S.), Honeywell international (U.S.), Ecobee (Canada), Schneider Electric SE (France), Emerson Electric Co. (U.S.), Tado (Germany), Control4 Corporation (U.S.), Ingersoll Rand (Ireland), Carrier Corporation (U.S.), and Nortek, Inc. (France).
