A smart thermostat is the thermostat device that could be controlled with a phone, internet-connected devices, tablet, or smart speakers. Smart thermostat generally allows the user to schedule their desired temperature settings and incorporate the thermostat devices into home automation systems.

Depending on the model, a smart thermostat can offer numerous features. Some devices can learn their user's heating & cooling preferences and automatically adjust their setting to them. Many smart thermostats have diagnostic features which can detect problems in the ducting or HVAC system. A smart thermostat may also remind the owner about the system's maintenance, like when it's time to change the air filter. Also, it can provide details regarding energy consumption.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic impacted the construction sector, especially smart homes, buildings and city projects. Delays in construction projects negatively affected the economy. The main reason being this all were supply chain issues and a lack of investments in retail and commercial properties. Government-imposed lockdown procedures to curb the spread of the virus, which heavily reduced foot traffic in buildings, and caused the bankruptcy of many key market players. In the initial days, COVID-19 negatively impacted the smart thermostat market, leading to a decline in its revenues and unit shipments. As a result, the market showcased a slowdown. These are expected to propel the market demand for smart thermostat in post pandemic period.

Market Growth Factors

Easy controlling & HVAC scheduling

Installing a smart thermostat means that the user can control the thermostat and change their home’s temperature from a distance, whether on the couch, on the train home from work, or even on vacation. For instance, if someone is coming back to home early and wants to set the perfect temperature before they reach home, they need to simply adjust the cooling or heating schedule for that particular day on the app. Likewise, if the user is on vacation, they can change their cooling schedule to keep the house warmer while they are gone. Hence, the utilization of smart thermostats to check and set the temperature of the user's home remotely while also reviewing the conditions of their HVAC is expected to propel the market.

Increasing smart cities and usage of IOT

The urbanization of society continues to rise rapidly, focusing on smart cities, where connected technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are being utilized to enhance critical infrastructure, public safety, energy efficiency, city lighting, traffic flow and traffic congestion. The aim is to decrease cities’ carbon footprint while making cities a better place to live, play and work. The increased urbanization of societies with IoT devices will boost the smart thermostat market.

Market Restraining Factors

High installation cost

HVAC systems integrated with smart thermostats need a custom fabrication and a fine-tuning of parts during the installation for their efficient working and failure elimination. Hence, there is a need for skilled professionals for the proper installation of smart thermostats. If there is even a minor issue during the fitting, the end user might need to pay a large amount of money in the long run for repairs, and in some cases, the HVAC system fails to work. The installation's high cost and problems during the installation may hinder the smart thermostat market’s growth.

Technology Outlook

Based on the technology, the smart thermostat market is segmented into wi-fi, ZigBee and others. The Wi-Fi segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the smart thermostat market in 2021. This is because of the increased adoption of wireless smart thermostats, which can easily connect with an application on the user’s phone. It aids the user in scheduling cooling or heating, facilitates automation with other devices and adjusts the home temperature. Also, the Wi-Fi communication protocol is globally the most widely used. Wi-Fi-connected devices can be easily controlled with mobile phones or tablets.
