Connected Living Room: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Connected living room is a modern concept of using Internet connected electronic systems such as televisions, computers and game consoles to share data. This concept is fundamentally changing the dynamics of in-home entertainment. A connected living room enables a user to share videos, music and photos through devices such as personal computers, set-top boxes and smart TVs, and offers a more personalized digital living experience. The steady influx of new age devices featuring internet connectivity offers freedom that surpasses the linear viewing experience from traditional devices. As compared to non-connected devices, connected living room devices that are enabled with online connectivity offer a higher level of engagement, entertainment, interaction, and access to personalized services.

Key factors driving demand for connected living room solutions include urbanization, rising per capita income, elevated standard of living, and lifestyle upgrades. The digitalization trend represents a key market driving force, along with other factors such as growing ubiquity of content streaming and widespread use of hi-tech display systems for enhancing viewing experience. Furthermore, the tremendous popularity of mobile video over the last few years is further providing impetus to market growth. High-speed broadband penetration will continue to drive market prospects for connected living room devices, as net savvy consumers are most likely to prefer these devices to access and share a range of online content. Faster home networks such as Gigabit Wi-Fi which enables users to wirelessly stream high-quality video and games three times faster is expected to further catalyze market growth. Cloud computing is also playing a key role in influencing growth by enabling users to store unlimited volumes of songs, movies, videos and apps that can be accessed by any mobile device via an internet connection.

Smartphones dominate the connected living room market owing to their low average cost and high volume sales. The advent of 4G network technologies and declining prices of 3G data and voice services are expanding the appeal of smartphones as a connected home device. Smart TVs, another key segment of the market, is taking digital television experience one step further by allowing users to watch their regular broadcast programs over cable or satellite services, and also explore the Internet for a range of informative and entertaining content
