Many market research agencies invariably have predicted that in the following 3 to 5 years, the smart home market will reach 100-billion. The promising market has not only attracted many international giants like Apple, Google, and Bosch, but has also drawn attention from Chinese enterprises. Core household enterprises such as Haier and Midea have put their smart home strategy into implementation in 2014. The internet enterprises presented by Alibaba and JD.com have also strived to occupy a space in the Chinese smart home market. Huawei, a company specializing in communication, has also entered the smart home field. In 2015, the "giants" successively built cooperative relationships with each other, for example, Haier cooperated with Huawei, Midea with MI, and GREE with JD.com. Also, many supporting-service enterprises, like intelligent modules, smart chips and SmartCloud platform have sprung up like mushrooms in recent years. The entire smart home industrial chain is fully covered. An "ecosphere" centering on smart homes is gradually taking shape in China.
To some extent, China has become a pioneer in the smart home field. In March 2016, giants of the household appliance industry will demonstrate their achievements in the smart home field at AWE2016 alongside a large number of growing smart home industry enterprises. According to the AWE organizer, the Smart Home Exhibition Hall will be specially set for participating companies to exchange their opinions and share experience.
TVs which can automatically push information, refrigerators which can manage foods, washing machines that can automatically add detergent, and even smart housekeeper J.A.R.V.I.S in Iron Man will come to the real world. AWE will become an important platform to display smart home and smart household appliances. One day, these intelligent products will eventually enter our daily life, helping to spur the rapid development of global household appliance intelligentization.
