CEA Study Finds Almost all Home Technology Installations Increased in 2013

Almost all installations of home technologies in new homes increased or held constant in 2013, indicating the built-in home technology market has a strong, stable foothold in the U.S. The 12th Annual State of the Builder Technology Market Study, was released today by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®. 

Installations of almost every home technology increased or held constant from 2012 to 2013. Structured wiring was the most common technology installed in 2013 (78 percent, an eight percent increase from 2012), followed by monitored security (47 percent, up three percent) and home theaters (32 percent, up five percent). Multi-room audio (21 percent), energy management (13 percent) and home automation (12 percent) all saw increases. A new addition to this year's study are stand-alone video surveillance systems (including pre-wire),which were installed in eight percent of new homes in 2013. 

The U.S. housing market continued to recover in 2013 and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) predicts there will be 1.3 million new home starts in 2014. In parallel with the housing recovery, built-in home technologies are expected to reach $2.3 billion in revenue in 2014, according to CEA's U.S. Consumer Electronics Sales and Forecast report.
