The smart home industry is looking for new growth opportunities, and the Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell has provided stability to the healthcare industry, making it an attractive market for smart home players. The smart home could enable new value propositions in home-based health and wellness solutions and independent living products and services.

Parks Associates research shows:

  • By 2019 the number of U.S. homes with a smart home controller will exceed 26 million
  • Connected digital fitness trackers will grow to more than 82 million by 2019
  • Nearly 30% of U.S. broadband households own a connected health device
