The security & access application segment accounted for the largest market revenue share in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market till 2030. The rising demand for security and access control automation systems for safeguarding homeowners’ valuable possessions is a driving factor for the segment. To cater to this demand, companies provide automation systems with advanced security features such as biometric verification, passcode entry, motion detection, and more, either as a one-time solution or a subscription-based solution. For instance, Amazon.com, Inc.’s Ring LLC offers security & access solutions in its portfolio for home applications.
The wireless technology segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period of 2023 to 2030. This strong growth is attributed to the capabilities and features of mobile connectivity through network protocols such as ZigBee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Z Wave, and others. Manufacturers prefer protocols that offer smooth communication, with less to no impact on battery life and range. For instance, the ZigBee protocol provides longer battery life as it operates on lower latency and a low-duty cycle for instant device-to-device communication.
The hybrid technology segment recorded the highest market revenue share in 2022 due to the benefit of long-range connectivity provided by the combination of wireless and wired technologies. The demand for this segment is driven by homeowners with complex home layouts, as devices can be connected despite wall placement, room location, and other structural factors. Additionally, the downtime in hybrid technology is less as a result of dual modes of connectivity. For instance, if there is a failure in a wired cable, the device can still communicate via its wireless capability.
The retrofit fitment segment recorded the highest market revenue share in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market till 2030. The segment’s growth is attributed to the high number of already constructed homes.
