Top 9 Vendors in the ZigBee Home Automation Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global ZigBee home automation market report. This research report also lists 18 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The demand for electricity is growing, owing to rapid industrialization and rise in population. This is resulting in increased energy consumption worldwide. The prices of raw materials used by power generation and distribution companies have risen sharply. Therefore, homeowners need to minimize energy consumption to reduce costs.

Smart thermostats help users to monitor their cooling and heating patterns and remotely monitor appliances so that they can conserve energy. These devices also understand consumer behavior through self-learning algorithms and can adjust energy consumption accordingly. Smart appliance manufacturers are pitching their products in the market on the basis of efficiency and economical utilization. Appliances account for 45% of residential electricity consumption. Planned utilization of electricity and the usage of ZigBee smart home automation help improve the consumers' savings. With ZigBee home automation products, manufacturers will be able to provide the cost benefits to end-customers based on energy saving.

Competitive vendor landscape

Many vendors offering a range of products like lighting, control, appliances, security, and other products based on different standards like ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Thread, are present in the global ZigBee home automation market. The market is fragmented with the presence of many vendors including OEMs and module manufacturers. Suppliers like Silicon Labs are trying to increase their technology capabilities and consolidate the supply chain market for building and smart home automation or IoT solutions. In November 2015, Silicon Labs acquired Telegesis, a leading supplier of wireless-mesh-based networking modules, for USD 20 million. Qorvo, an IoT solution provider, acquired GreenPeak in April 2016.

Silicon Labs is utilizing every market strategy to gain access to different market verticals such as ZigBee modules. The ZigBee-enabled module market is also growing; hence, Silicon Labs is focusing on penetrating this market by the acquisition of Telegesis, to support customer needs for comprehensive mesh networking solutions,” says Navin Rajendra, an industry expert from Technavio, specializing in embedded systems research.
