Digitimes Research: Smart home segment proposes growth but lacks direction
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 26 February 2015]

Within the Internet of Things (IoT) market the smart home segment is one of the most talked about areas. However, there currently lacks a mainstream standard, and vendors, content providers and other service providers are still trying to solidify plans on how to tackle the market and create business opportunities in 2015, according to Digitimes Research.

Multiple content platforms for TV applications have emerged from different vendors and content providers. In addition, other service-based and product-based companies are still assessing how to squeeze into relevant ecosystems and provide value.

Connecting other smart appliances is currently a focus for vendors as well, but developing related services that hardware providers have yet to provide is still a factor many vendors are discussing going into 2015, added Digitimes Research.
