Smart devices shipments forecast to show strong growth

Smart home products are exhibiting strong growth in U.S. homes, and 20% of households with broadband plan to acquire one or more smart home devices within the next year, according to new survey released from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and Parks Associates.

The study said 48% of those surveyed who own a smart home device are under 35-years-old.

“It makes sense that early adopters of smart home devices tend to be younger, have a high-tech affinity and are four-times as likely to buy new technology as soon as it is available,” said Steve Koenig, director of industry analysis, CEA. “More than half of smart home device owners say they want to use technology as a way to create more time with their family.”
