A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market opportunities for communicating and smart thermostats, with analysis of market drivers, profiles of key stakeholders, and forecasts of shipments and revenue, through 2025.
While thermostats have been around for decades, the latest technology advancements have only just begun to gain traction. Communicating and smart thermostats enable consumers to save money on energy bills, help utilities meet energy efficiency and demand-side management (DSM) requirements, and play a part in connected home solutions.
“In the next decade, smart thermostats are expect to account for almost half of annual thermostat shipments,” says Paige Leuschner, research analyst at Navigant Research. “Uptake of these and communicating thermostats is expected to escalate as software and services increase the value of thermostats through more advanced capabilities, intelligence, and insights, and as more thermostats are incorporated into utility efficiency and demand response programs.”
As the market for communicating and smart thermostats continues to evolve, different distribution channels for these devices are emerging, according to the report. Telecommunications and broadband service providers, home security companies, and heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) installers are all finding ways to incorporate advanced thermostats into their solutions.
