It allows the user to control lights, thermostats, HVAC, audio and video streaming devices, and other home appliances from a single source. This management system is also widely used with home automation security systems.

On-premises management was the only system available for home automation for many years. They are ideal for connecting to a large number of smart devices from a single source. New homes generally have pre-installed on-premises management systems. Hence, the market for on-premises management is expected to hold a larger share during the forecast period.

Entertainment and other controls products expected to have the largest share of the market throughout the forecast

The major controls used to control and regulate the entertainment systems in home automation are audio, volume, and multimedia room controls. Other controls include smart meters, smart plugs, smart hubs, smart locks, smart window blinds, and smoke detectors. Automated home audio and volume controllers are used to control the audio and video played in the house or to customize what is playing in each room individually.

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 the 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 a 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. The North American real estate market witnessed a sharp decline in the first and second quarters of 2020, resulting in fewer home purchases despite the fall in house prices.

Real estate prices are expected to drop to 10% during the pandemic due to reduced real estate bookings. As a result, many existing and potential home automation buyers in North America are deferring their purchases during the pandemic to avoid excess spending.
