Smart Kitchen Market Dynamics
The global smart kitchen appliances market is influenced by a number of factors that are responsible for promoting its growth and also restricting it. Factors that are responsible for augmenting the growth include increasing funding in smart cities, demand for smart kitchen appliances, and the rise in demand for connected devices.
In the last five years, the adoption rate of smart cities has witnessed a massive increase, as governments have taken major steps and invested well in transforming communities into smart cities. Further, smart home appliances manufacturers have developed innovative and connected smart devices. These devices with in-built sensors and innovative AI technologies, help users to manage their time efficiently, and offer features such as self-monitoring for minimizing energy consumption. These technologies promote the green ecosystem and the use of renewable sources of energy.
Reducing the consumption of energy through IoT devices is one of the major concerns of the players in the smart appliances market. The development of information control technology for energy saving has led to green IoT, which focuses on reducing energy consumption by smart IoT centered appliances. Green IoT plays a significant role in deploying IoT to reduce energy consumption, pollution, and CO2 emission, conservation of the environment, and minimizing power consumption.
At the same time, data privacy and IoT security-related concerns among consumers and high purchasing cost of smart kitchen appliances are the two factors that are restraining the growth of the market. Each of these factors is projected to be of high importance only in the near future, that is, for one to three years. However, the factors are expected to have a medium impact in the next four to six years.
The introduction of IoT for kitchen appliances, along with the addition of sensors and networking, has enhanced connectivity between the users and the kitchen appliances. Cyber-attacks and hacking into IoT-connected devices are expected to have harmful real-world consequences.
With regular disruption by new technologies in the home appliance industry, companies are constantly introducing innovations in their smart kitchen appliances. Therefore, prices of smart appliances are rising with every new technological advancement in the product. It has been observed the rate at which the prices of smart appliances are increasing is not at par with the rate of spending of average household on consumer goods, thus restricting the expected increase in sales of smart appliances.
