FutureFinders spots emerging market trends and the products on GlobalSources.com that will take these trends to hot viral levels.
The FutureFinders Smart Home episode looks at the smart gadgets boosting the “home IQ” of the present-day abode.
For this series, we will “build” a smart home by examining further several trends taking the smart movement by storm:
- Automation, one of the basics in a connected home
- Smart security and surveillance, which allow remote monitoring
This time, we light up the smart home with intelligent fixtures and systems designed for automation, ease of use and energy efficiency.
These factors contribute to smart lighting’s bright future (pun intended). Market Research Engine forecast the global smart lighting market to be worth more than $21 billion by 2024 based on a 22 percent CAGR from 2018 to 2024.
Many smart lighting products adopt LEDs, a trend that will continue for the next several years. LED bulbs themselves are becoming intelligent, capable of connecting wirelessly with apps that allow users to dim, switch on or off, and even play music by tapping on their phone.
Smart lighting systems, on the other hand, can connect to other smart devices such as audio and entertainment equipment, home assistants, security systems, and thermostats and sensors.
Global Sources Verified Suppliers are focusing R&D on these trends, releasing constantly smart lighting products that connect the rest of the home and conserve energy.
