Top Companies in the Smart Lock Industry

Top Companies in the Smart Lock Industry

The global smart lock market size reached US$ 2.3 Billion in 2023. A smart lock is an electro-mechanical system that performs the locking and unlocking function after receiving commands from an authorized source. It uses a cryptographic key to grant access to the user for a certain period. These commands are usually transmitted through wearable devices, smartphones, or tablets using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. It also provides additional features such as sending notifications through SMS and e-mail and a video camera with recording capabilities to provide visuals of the person at the door. Owing to these properties, smart locks are widely adopted across commercial and residential sectors across the globe.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top smart lock companies are integrating advanced technologies, such as cloud-based locking and unlocking, that enable the user to access these locks through a virtual device remotely. They are also introducing smart locks with embedded three-dimensional (3D) biometric fingerprint sensors and a built-in Wi-Fi feature that is also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant. For instance, August Inc. (ASSA ABLOY) announced the launch of the Wi-Fi Smart Lock in January 2020, which sports a compact design and built-in Wi-Fi connection to eliminate the need to pair smart locks with an external bridge. Moreover, various key players are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities and engaging in mergers and acquisitions (M&As) to strengthen their foothold in the global market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 9.3 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 16.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
