"New installations of smart home systems in Europe and North America will reach 21.5 million in 2017
According to a new research report from Berg Insight, the number of new smart home installations in North America is on track to reach 2.3 million in 2013, an increase of 66 percent year-on-year. The strong growth is expected to last for years to come, driving the number of new installations each year to 12.8 million by 2017. As a result, penetration of smart home systems in North American households will increase from just 3.2 percent at the end of 2013 to 16.6 percent in 2017. The European market for smart home systems is about three years behind North America in terms of penetration and market maturity." Good opportunity for SWIR!!.
