The global smart speaker market is projected to grow from $7.5 billion in 2020 to around USD 39 billion by 2026, at a whopping compound annual growth rate of about 36% from 2021 to 2026.
The smart speaker is a wireless speaker activated by Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other wireless protocols and powered by a virtual assistant, which is driven by artificial intelligence. It is the latest technological innovation that dominates the consumer technology market and is activated by voice commands to perform various tasks, such as listening to music, ordering food and buying online. It also shows other activities, such as obtaining weather information, breaking news, listing daily activities and integrating with smart appliances. These multiple functions provide an advantage for smart speakers compared to other alternative technology products and services.
The smart home is the main application of smart speakers due to its features and ease of use. Smart speakers can control devices with the user's voice, which makes everyday tasks easier. With a voice command, the user can control all smart devices by connecting them to the Internet. Smart speakers understand the natural way of speaking and are less complicated to use than other smart devices, which makes it an easy tool for older and busy people.
The consumers increasingly adopt smart speakers due to the comfort offered by the device. The smart speaker can control all smart devices, through a smartphone and an Internet connection.
Smart offices are increasingly advanced with the growing implementation of smart speakers. Smart speakers that make life easier and more efficient for consumers in smart homes can also be used in work environments. Smart speakers are physically designed to be compatible with the office environment. Comfort is a crucial factor in the growing demand for smart office speakers. In a smart office environment, especially in customer service applications at retailers and call centers, smart speakers know how businesses work and help business owners make better decisions quickly.
Other smart speaker applications include automotive and commerce. The demand for smart speakers used in the automotive application is increasing rapidly due to its compactness and compatibility with other devices. The smart speaker is a hands-free, voice-activated device. It allows users to change radio stations, find a button to change the song, or receive calls while driving without looking at the music system and smartphone, which increases security.
Market Growth and Trends
The increase in the number of smart homes, the increase in disposable income, the increasing trend of customization and the rapid proliferation of multifunction devices are the main factors that play an essential role in the growth of the global smart speaker market.
Market Drivers and Restraints
The growing demand for smart home devices is the crucial factor driving the growth of the global smart speaker market. Other factors influencing the market growth are the increased willingness of the consumer to invest in advanced technologies and the increased use of smart devices among the younger generation. In addition, the development of partnerships between smart home manufacturers and smart speaker creators enables seamless integration with the smart speaker. This turns out to be a critical factor in the adoption of smart speakers. However, with the use of smart speakers, the privacy of user data becomes a major problem for consumer demand. The smart speaker offers personalized service to its users through the collection and analysis of user data. The potential for manufacturers to exploit private user data and the threat of illegal cyberattacks to invade privacy limit demand for these smart speakers. Also, the complexity of training virtual assistants speaking multiple languages around the world limits the global reach of these speakers.
