Smart Appliances

Intelligent Control, Power Management, and Networking Technologies for
Household Appliances on the Smart Grid: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

In recent years, despite significant improvements in energy efficiency across the household appliance industry, energy consumption is on the rise. Manufacturers of appliances, particularly major appliances, see this as an opportunity to bring additional value by connecting appliances to the grid, thus enabling them to react to price and demand response signals. As smart grid initiatives around the world aim at improving load management, increasing reliability, and raising consumer awareness, smart appliances have a significant role to play in realizing this vision as they provide the all-important link to large residential energy loads.

While the smart appliance market is limited in terms of availability and types of products at the present time, and will likely remain so for the next 2 to 3 years, intelligent power management technologies will start to make their way into mainstream appliances in greater numbers after 2015. Continuing investment in smart grid initiatives, declining selling prices, and clearer value propositions will make smart appliances more appealing for end users in the coming years. Pike Research expects worldwide smart appliance sales to reach nearly $35 billion by 2020.
