We’ve had some bold claims with regard to the Smart Home market this year. Our June analysis showed a significant drop in consumer demand for DIY equipment, mostly driven by a fall off in security cameras. Our refreshed analysis in August saw delight increase as demand slowed, a further indication that the main stream market might be leaving DIY Smart Home to the early adopters.
Along the way, we have added new sources and new products to further expand our coverage. As a result, we are delighted to share the revised results of our analysis of Consumer Smart Home demand through September 2015. While the overall demand has increased, the same slowing trend we reported on in June and August persists, with September at the lowest level of any month this year.
Will the momentum of 2015 continue into 2016? Argus Insights will be at the Consumer Electronics Show in force, following soon after with our predictions for 2016. Let us know if you’d like to catch up in Vegas!
