Key Market Trends

Growing Prominence of Smart Homes Drives Strong Demand for Automated Blinds and Shades

  • By volume, the United States commands a prominent share of the market, followed by Europe. However, Europe's demand for smart home solutions is growing significantly, owing to various government initiatives to adopt connected solutions. According to the Ambient, the US penetration of smart homes stood at around 32.4%, or an estimated total of 41.3 million smart homes.

  • The number of connected devices in a household is also on the rise; for instance, in 2019, Plume Households had an average of 18 Wi-Fi connected devices, and the company expected the numbers to go up to 31 by 2022. The explosion of smart home devices is not limited to just computers, phones, tablets, and the occasional digital assistant running on home Wi-Fi networks; these networks will be powering each and every device that will run and sustain homes worldwide, now and in the future.

  • Owing to the growing demand for smart home devices, especially smart speakers with virtual assistants, the demand for voice enabled smart devices in homes is expected to go up, thus driving smart window covering vendors to adopt the technology as part of their offerings to further enhance their offering's capabilities.

  • With the number of devices per household increasing, the demand for more smart solutions in homes is expected increase as well. Such developments are driving the demand for smart window coverings that are motorized and can be controlled via mobile devices.

Canada expected to Dominate Market Share

  • The growing concern for energy efficiency, an increasing number of smart residential projects, and the increasing trend for replacing old windows are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market studied in Canada.

  • The trend of old window replacements and investment in energy-efficient smart home products is increasing in the country. In Canada, Energy Star outlines 3 specific climate zones for window performance. Most urban regions in Canada fall under Climate Zone 2 and require windows to have an ER rating of 29 or higher.

  • Although the window manufacturing cost in Canada is high, an increasing number of new local players, and growing smart manufacturing adoption in the country are expanding the scope of the market studied. For instance, a typical large size window and window coverings manufacturing plant could cost at least USD 10 million; however, leveraging automation and existing manufacturing lines, this can be reduced. Many start-ups in the country are also playing a significant role in the market.

  • Many US-based companies are also expanding their presence in Canada, as the country is highly influenced by smart home trends in the United States. Therefore, many foreign companies that have penetrated the US market are also investing in the Canadian market.
