Global Smart Thermostat Market - Snapshot

A smart thermostat is a device used in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment to control the temperature of a space or room wherein these equipment are installed. A smart thermostat has the ability to make automated and smart adjustments for customers so as to achieve energy savings and to communicate with sources external to an HVAC system. Thus, the demand for smart thermostats is rising at a rapid pace. Moreover, a smart thermostat is a major energy-saving device for smart homes/buildings. Smart thermostats are largely used in residential buildings. Improvements in residential and commercial buildings have also driven the RFID industry. The global smart thermostat market is estimated to reach value of US$ 8,729.2 Mn by 2026 from US$ 1,157.6 Mn in 2017, expanding at a CAGR of 23.7% during the forecast period.
