Global Smart Home Market Prospects Explored in New Cutting-Edge IDATE Study Now Available at

28 Jun 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – In the coming years, tablet computers are expected to replace the computer as the device of choice for accessing the web at home. Forecasts say tablet sales will reach more than 204 million units by 2013, and close to 366 million by the end of 2015.

Connectivity creates the opportunity for TVs to take on some of the capabilities of the PC. However, the fundamental role of TV is likely to remain the same. Connected behaviours sit more naturally on second screens (tablets/iPads, smartphonew or laptops ) – the device of choice for social networking and looking up information about the programmes. Companion content, such as additional information about the programme or access to outtakes, is much less intrusive and more in tune with the communal nature of the viewing experience if delivered to a second screen than if accessible through the connected set itself.

New study “Smart Home Market - Trends & Markets 2013-2017” elaborated by IDATE Consulting & Research (IDATE) offers a complete guide to the world smart home market.
