A smart appliance is a household appliance that offers more than basic features and functionality. They may also offer WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity, control via mobile device, self-monitoring system, and more.
Washing machines, dryers, ovens, refrigerators and other household appliances have come a long ways over the years. No longer are they limited to a single function; they now boast some pretty impressive high-tech features, such as the ability to check your refrigerator's inventory via a mobile app.
These "smart appliances" are becoming more and more common in residential homes. They open the doors to a whole new world of possibilities, turning otherwise basic appliances into versatile high-tech devices.
According to the Global Smart Appliances Market 2016-2020 report by Research Beam, the global smart appliances market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.48%. Researchers cite the market's strong future growth as being an effect of the rise of middle-class economy, higher disposable income levels, increased labor costs, busier lifestyles, and the greater availability or smart appliances at low prices.
Of course, there are also restraints facing the global smart appliances market, such as the lack of high-tech exposure among the general population. The fact is that many people aren't even aware of the existence of smart appliances, let alone how to operate them.
