Top 9 Vendors in the ZigBee Home Automation Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio – Business Wire (press release)

has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global
ZigBee home automation market
report. This research
report also lists 18 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact
the market during the forecast period.

The demand for electricity is growing, owing to rapid industrialization
and rise in population. This is resulting in increased energy
consumption worldwide. The prices of raw materials used by power
generation and distribution companies have risen sharply. Therefore,
homeowners need to minimize energy consumption to reduce costs.

Smart thermostats help users to monitor their cooling and heating
patterns and remotely monitor appliances so that they can conserve
energy. These devices also understand consumer behavior through
self-learning algorithms and can adjust energy consumption accordingly.
Smart appliance manufacturers are pitching their products in the market
on the basis of efficiency and economical utilization. Appliances
account for 45% of residential electricity consumption. Planned
utilization of electricity and the usage of ZigBee smart home automation
help improve the consumers’ savings. With ZigBee home automation
products, manufacturers will be able to provide the cost benefits to
end-customers based on

Competitive vendor landscape

Many vendors offering a range of products like lighting, control,
appliances, security, and other products based on different standards
like ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Thread, are present in
the global ZigBee
home automation
market. The market is fragmented with the
presence of many vendors including OEMs and module manufacturers.
Suppliers like Silicon Labs are trying to increase their
technology capabilities and consolidate the supply chain market for
building and smart home automation or IoT solutions. In November
2015, Silicon Labs acquired Telegesis, a leading supplier of
wireless-mesh-based networking modules, for USD 20 million. Qorvo,
an IoT solution provider, acquired GreenPeak in April 2016.

“Silicon Labs is utilizing every market strategy to gain
access to different market verticals such as ZigBee modules. The
ZigBee-enabled module market is also growing; hence, Silicon Labs is
focusing on penetrating this market by the acquisition of Telegesis, to
support customer needs for comprehensive mesh networking solutions
