Third of US homes to have smart speakers by 2022 - study

Tuesday 28 February 2017 | 15:08 CET | News
Smart speakers are set to increasingly challenge smartphones in the home of the future, according to a report from Strategy Analytics indicating that shipments will grow tenfold by 2022 from the 5.9 million speakers sold worldwide in 2016. Although Amazon's Echo line of devices currently dominates the market, competition is set to intensify this year as Google Home enters its first full year of sales. The value of the market will exceed USD 1.5 billion in 2017 and reach USD 5.5 billion by 2022, with uptake in US homes growing from 7 percent by the end of 2017 to 33 percent by 2022.
