Home energy management systems (HEMS) is a technology platform that monitors, manages, and controls home functions such as HVAC, lighting, solar PV, and other appliances in a residential building. The HEMS market is expected to grow at an accelerated rate for the next 7 years. The concept of HEMS has evolved over the last few years, where the focus has changed from being a simple HEMS deployed by utilities to a valuable component that is now part of smart homes. The driving factors of HEMS are quite similar to the BEMS market, but some of the key driving factors that we identified unique to HEMS include the increasing trend of electricity prices, the lack of commitment from utilities, the increasing demand for distributed energy generation, and the increasing know-how about HEMS among customers. The technologies that take the home and building technologies industry to the next phase of evolution—such as artificial intelligence and the explosion of Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices, data analytics, edge analytics, cloud solutions, and business model innovation—have had a positive impact on the HEMS market as well. This market is swarmed by start-ups and emerging participants and the influence of incumbents has lessened. Some of these start-ups are changing the market dynamics by adopting cutting-edge technologies in their products. Frost & Sullivan estimates the HEMS market will reach $7,656.1 million and grow at a CAGR of 23.3% until 2025.
