New service models will emerge

The smart home market is undergoing changes as new service-based models emerge, according to Jürgen, who predicts that hardware will continue to have the biggest share.

Home automation will take the most revenues

Jürgen: “We expect four key segments in the smart home market to account for 89% of the market: home automation (40%), smart energy (20%), ambient assisted living and digital health care (15%), and self monitoring and control (10%).”

German market will treble in five years

“We expect the German market to rise from €1.6bn in 2013 to €4.9bn in 2017, including hardware, installation and services.”

Cooperation will be key to success

“We expect to see a fragmented supplier structure: no single player will cover all smart home segments. Cooperation will be key to success.”
