A smart speaker refers to a wireless, internet-enabled device that offers a smart audio playback using several types of connectivity for additional functions. It is equipped with a unique, patented technology known as smart sound that recognizes, responds to voice commands, and quickly manipulates music content. It is commonly used to stream live news, read e-books, play music, and set reminders and alarms. On the other hand, a gateway is a physical platform or device that serves as the connection point between sensors and intelligent devices and the cloud and controllers. Smart sound and gateway provide dedicated audio and voice processing to support voice wake functions and reduce device power consumption. Besides this, it assists in clear voice recognition, uncompromised sound, great battery life, and enhanced audio playback.
Smart Sound and Gateway Market Trends:
The increasing consumer propensity towards the adoption and usage of connected devices across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the rising penetration of high-speed internet and the growing access to smartphones is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the increasing demand for smart speakers with virtual assistance to play music, provide information, deliver news and sports scores, weather, and control smart homes is positively influencing the market. In line with this, smart speakers with a display are projected to gain traction in the upcoming years as they can offer a centralized platform to control multifunctional devices, which, in turn, has prompted various prominent vendors to spread their presence in the segment through the integration of advanced technologies. Apart from this, the widespread adoption of Google Assistant, a virtual assistant software application developed by Google, to provide accurate information on search and maps and translate other languages is providing an impetus to the market growth. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities to launch innovative smart sound and gateway systems with advanced features, functions, and compatibility with other devices are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing expenditure capacities of consumers, improving lifestyles, and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, are supporting the market growth.
