Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global smart shade devices market to grow exponentially at a CAGR of around 90% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the acceptance of motorized shades among the developed countries. The recent years witnessed an increase in the demand for shades operated by motorized mechanisms for both residential and commercial usage. This rising demand has created the opportunity for shade manufacturers to move towards smart shades. They integrate technologies such as Bluetooth low energy (BLE) or Bluetooth Smart, Wi-Fi, and other wireless technologies to communicate with the motor mechanism and automate the movement of such motorized shades. The devices that are used to motorize shades can control multiple windows from one mobile app. Users can set daily or weekly schedules to automate each room. Moreover, the capability of devices to operate through a touch interface in addition to mobile apps will drive investments in this market during the forecast period.
