Why is Home Automation still expensive in India?
Published on May 24, 2018

The current Automation systems are developed by MNCs such as ABB or Schneider which are highly upmarket products (in their build, finish and positioning), you could argue that India is not the primary market they’re aiming to serve, so any such product you procure will most likely have been imported.

The organizations that make these have massive overheads/R&D departments that need to function for these materials to be developed and refined over time. After all, you don’t question why bottled water costs 1000X of what it should cost, or why any FMCG product costs 25X of what it should.

Thirdly, home automation systems are still a nascent field in India and there are several Indian firms which are aspiring to make much more affordable products keeping in mind the spending habits of the Indian buyer segment. Give it a few years and you’ll see Home Automation products across all price categories and segments.


Future scope for Home Automation market in India
Published on May 24, 2018

Growth in Automation Market in India (2018-22)

The next phase for the Home automation market will occur based on a few key improvements in the technology available in Automation, such as improvement in Wireless Automation solutions as well as lowering of price points as the market begins to accept Home automation usage in larger volumes. Some trends that we foresee for this phase of the industry are

• Big companies like Philips, Siemens & Schneider will eventually bring out fairly mass market automation products with appealing user interface but at a lower price point than today, and more people will be able to afford the products • Solution offerings will slowly move to a more user friendly design, where aside from a few key components, users will be able to buy and use the Automation products themselves without the aid of any technical expert • Some foreign players will have niche in high end automation and focus on the premium market (>20 Lakh ticket size).

Commodification of Automation market (2021 onward)

As with any industry, as Automation for residences become common place, the market will eventually be crowded with several players, multiple product offerings and competitive pricing. The market for just Home automation is estimated to be 3.2$ Billion by 2020. If IoT were to become common place, then we’re looking at a multi-billion dollar opportunity in the Indian market.

  • We foresee that all major players will have a presence leading to competition in prices and lower margins
  • The products themselves will reach a ‘plug and play’ type of usability, where users can simply purchase pieces from the store and use it themselves without any support from professionals
  • Many (most) houses will incorporate some aspect of Automation in the home, from Lighting, security or HVAC elements. Home Automation will be as commonplace as having a Fridge or Television in the house.
