5 Predictions for CE Retail in 2018

So, given all of this then, how can we predict such strong performance for a category that doesn’t have the best track record? Consider this: According to Parks Associates, more tan 100 million U.S. households did not have a smart home device at the end of 2016 out of a possible 117 million. That places smart home penetration at roughly 14.5 percent. That’s a low number, but it represents great news for the retail industry, because that means the opportunity is right there for the taking. Growth potential in this space is enormous.
