Smart Wine Cellar Market: Technology Changing the Wine Experience
Wine cellars in modern times are no longer dimly lit, cavernous rooms with endless bottles, designed for maximum storage. In recent decades, modern wine cellars incorporate materials that are strictly not considered traditional, based on the requirement of customers.
The pervasive influence of technology has crept into the wine cellar industry, and the rise of automation technologies is expected to provide an impetus to the developments in the smart wine cellar market. In 2018, sales of ~45 thousand units of smart wine cellars were recorded across the world, and the market reached a valuation of ~US$ 1.2 billion. With rapid advancements in IT infrastructures and wireless communication technologies, the global market for smart wine cellars is expected to reach new heights in the coming years.
As per recent trends, smart wine cellars that connect to Wi-Fi, and be monitored by technology and even voice recognition, are becoming popular among consumers, with stakeholders looking at exploring options in both, the residential and commercial sectors. Technology has enhanced the wine industry, with apps that help track and organize wine in the cellar, and even maintain precise temperature and humidity to help preserve the wine longer.
For instance, in 2018, LG, a leading global appliance manufacturer, launched its Signature Wine Cellar, with space for 65 bottles of wine, also offering voice recognition. This is promoted as a premium home appliance - a wine cellar with three different temperature zones for different wines. In addition to this, La Sommeliere, a major player in the European wine cellar market, launched a connected smart wine cellar in 2018, which offers temperature and humidity control. La Sommeliere’s connected smart wine cellars use VinoTag, an app that allows users to organize the contents in the cellar. It is marketed as a connected cellar that encourages the creation of a collection, with the convenience of easy storage and management.

Recovering Wine Consumption Expected to Contribute to Adoption of Smart Wine Cellars
According to the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV)’s press release about wine consumption, there has been a continuing recovery trend since 2014 regarding the consumption of wine in traditional markets in North America and Europe, with emerging markets in Asia. This recovery is expected to contribute to the adoption of smart wine cellars in these regions. This presents an opportunity for manufacturers to capitalize on the trend of changing lifestyles and increasing consumption of wine, and strengthen their presence in these regional markets.
However, despite being touted as the future of wine storage technology, with several smart features, the smart wine cellar market’s growth may be restrained by the high cost factor. This applies particularly to developing countries, markets where purchasing power is rather low in comparison to developed countries.
The ban on alcohol in several countries and rules & regulations prohibiting the consumption and sale of alcohol can also act as a deterrent to the growth of the smart wine cellar market in developing regions.
Cellars with Capacity of Less than 500 Bottles to Lead Market
Cellars with the capacity of less than 500 bottles held the largest share in the market as of 2018, following the over 1,500 capacity cellar category. This trend is unlikely to change during the forecast period, with smart wine cellars with less than 500 bottles capacity continuing to dominate the market. This is likely to be driven by increasing investments by stakeholders into research & development and rising awareness among consumers related to wine consumption, in the global smart wine market.
Key players in the market such as LG and La Sommeliere are focusing on maintaining their position in the global market by showcasing new products in trade shows to help build visibility.
