European smart home market awakens

According to Parks Associaties in their new report IoT Connectivity in Europe: Value of Connected Products, companies in this space across the globe are exploring strategies to overcome market inhibitors and realise the opportunities emerging from the power of connectivity.

“Some European companies have been hesitant to jump into the IoT space due to their sense that this area suffers from overhype and gadgetry,” said Tricia Parks, founder, president, and CEO, Parks Associates.

“That view held some truth; however, the environment is changing. Early activity and accompanying success by EU companies as diverse as Assa Abloy, Miele, and Somfy are clearly visible. Meanwhile, global giants such as Samsung, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft are taking vigorous action to spur the marketplace.”
