CEDIA EMEA is partnering with internationally renowned growth partnership company, Frost & Sullivan, to access its research programmes, source market information and gain valuable analyst and consulting support.


"The smart and connected homes market is growing rapidly," says Wendy Griffiths, CEDIA EMEA's Executive Director. "But it's unclear quite what will happen next in terms of technology, applications, business models, suppliers, and customers. Engaging with Frost & Sullivan will help CEDIA EMEA and its members make sense of it all and enable them to plan how their businesses will evolve to be successful for the future. Members can also purchase any Frost & Sullivan report with a 20% CEDIA member discount and will have access to Frost & Sullivan's analyst team."

"The last five years has seen a strong period of technology innovation," adds Jonathan Robinson, Principal Consultant within the Energy, Environment & Building Technologies Practice within Frost & Sullivan. "But, can this be carried forward into viable business models that will ensure long-term market opportunities? The Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled the journey toward a smart home, but are consumers prepared to take it? On these and other issues facing the residential custom installation sector, we will help CEDIA EMEA by sharing consumer insights, industry research and projections on how we think the market will develop and evolve."

As part of this partnership, Jonathan at Frost & Sullivan delivered a keynote presentation at this year's CEDIA EMEA AGM, sharing some of the results of their consumer research and looking at the current state of the smart home market across the region, with an assessment of technology adoption, market opportunity and predictions. All CEDIA members can access this keynote presentation for free if they wish by contacting the CEDIA office.
