Hence, the entertainment & other controls segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period.

“Behavioral software and algorithm to held larger share of the market in 2020”
Behavioral type of software and algorithm analyzes energy-related data from various home automation devices and sensors and forwards it to the end users. This category of software and algorithm is restricted to transmitting and receiving the data and does not perform intelligent actions. Many of the home automation devices have behavioral type of software and algorithm. This includes smart meters, smart blinds, and AV controls. Since most home automation systems were initially equipped with the behavioral type of software and algorithm, it has a slightly higher market share compared to the proactive type.

“North America to hold significant share of the market in 2020”
North America is expected to hold the largest market for home automation systems in 2020 and is expected to remain the largest market in the future due to a large real estate and housing market in the US and Canada. Factors such as the increasing demand for reliable home energy management systems; enhanced home security levels; improved device standards; and the growing popularity of integration of smart devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and standalone voice assistants, in homes are driving the market in North America. This region is also home to some of the key players in the global home automation system market, such as Resideo (US), Acuity Brands (US), ADT (US), Control4 (US), and Crestron Electronics (US). This is expected to further boost market growth during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to affect North America the most, while the market in APAC is expected to be the least impacted.
