Parks Associates releases new industry research on Connected Home, OTT, Robotics, Digital Health, and Wearables

New research reports from Parks Associates covering OTT services, home robotics, smart watches, and connected health provide in-depth analysis of industry trends and consumer research, forecasts, business model strategies and opportunities, and key recommendations for players within these key connected home topics.

Parks Associates research finds that the average U.S. broadband household owns approximately seven connected devices and that consumers will continue to buy connected devices to address more specialized needs, such as fitness services and multiscreen video consumption. The connected home industries will need to continue to innovate to drive interoperability, ease of use, and consumer engagement.

“Today’s consumers want innovative connected technologies and services that work intuitively and seamlessly, which creates exciting opportunities for connected home industry players,” said Stuart Sikes, President, Parks Associates. “Our research analyzes the evolving connected home market, plus the global trends revealed in our consumer data, to provide the best strategic recommendations to technology manufacturers, service providers, and retailers in the connected home space."

Newly released research includes:
