Smart Appliances: Connected White Goods in the Home

Like the closely-linked market for home energy management systems, smart appliances have yet to take off as many had expected. Many products are still involved in small pilots and have failed to hit retail outlets in any large number. However, with smart meter deployment growing apace, energy costs following a seemingly upward trajectory, and progress made on improving interoperability of all aspects of the smart grid, it is surely only a matter of time before shipments gather momentum. In fact, all of the leading appliance manufactures have been busy announcing their plans in this area with recent trade shows in Las Vegas and Berlin used as launch-pads for new product innovations. This report provides an overview of the smart appliance market, alongside key drivers and inhibitors of growth, an explanation on the more technical aspects of the market and a discussion on the competitive landscape. The report concludes with six year forecasts of smart appliance shipments and revenues segmented by product type (clothes dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators/freezers, and washing machines) and major geographic region.
