“Though the adoption of these remotes is still in its nascent stage, Technavio researchers expects motion-controlled remotes to gradually be common during the forecast period. In 2015, 62.91 million motion-controlled remotes were shipped, and by 2020 this number is expected to reach close to 119.1 million units, growing at a CAGR of 13.62%,” said Sunil Kumar Singh, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for sensors research.

“Consumer electronics manufacturers such as Hisense, LG, Samsung, Skyworth, and TCL are bundling these remotes with their products, or offering these as separate bundled accessories. For instance, the majority of LG smart TVs come with LG's magic remote, which is a motion-controlled remote. Some of Samsung's smart TVs also come with motion-controlled remotes. This trend has resulted in an increase in consumer awareness about the potential benefits of using these remotes over standard remotes,” added Sunil.
