Top 5 Vendors in the Global Smart Connected Air Conditioner from 2016-2020: Technavio

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global smart connected air conditioner market report until 2020. This research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

In 2015, the global smart connected air conditioner market is expected to generate a revenue of USD 9.61 billion by 2020, growing at a massive CAGR of almost 60%.

The use of and dependence on devices that can be controlled remotely through wireless connection is increasing globally — a factor that is one of the key drivers for the market. Connectivity has become a necessity in today's day-to-day life, especially because it allows consumers to control essential tasks remotely. Wireless technologies like ZigBee and Wi-Fi are making inter-operability between devices possible.

Moving beyond smartphones and tablets, wireless connectivity is now being extended to a wide range of household appliances, enabling them to collect and exchange data through the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT helps to connect people and devices to each other via the internet. A lot of smart appliances have gone through huge transition due to the growing popularity of IoT, which integrates digital and wireless technology.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global smart connected air conditioners market is growing at a steady rate. With both established and small players investing significantly in smart appliances, the competition among them is expected to intensify over the next five years. For instance, Haier Electronics, which currently has a limited product offering, is using its capital expenditure to develop web-linked appliances to tap the market in China and cater to the tech-savvy consumers in the country. The company is already facing competition from Lenovo and Xiaomi, which are entering the smart home devices market.

Poonam Saini, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on retail goods and services, says, “The increasing vendor competition is leading to the introduction of new innovative machines, which will affect the market during the forecast period. Companies are also spending a significant amount on R&D to develop innovative and improved quality products and stay abreast with emerging technologies that have a bearing on their product lines.”

Smart features will be increasingly adapted in air conditioners during the forecast period, which will drive the cost of adaption downward. But players will have to make sure that the positioning of these air conditioners is such that it enhances the awareness of these devices among potential consumers and encourages them to buy them.
