The smart home market in Japan is predicted to exceed US$ 10 Billion by 2026. Japan offers a lucrative market opportunity for the Smart home industry. There is a growing demand in the Japanese market for safe and secure living environment, especially concerning safety functionalities and discrete monitoring for elderly people; also, since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, Japan has been focused on building energy efficient smart homes and supportive devices. Smart home is a system that allows home owner to control and monitor different devices in home including the heating, lighting, security, and entertainment, automatically and sometimes remotely via the Internet. In Japan, household penetration for smart home applications is estimated at around 12% in 2019.
The lack of standard operational protocols and electrical interfaces has previously impeded the growth of smart home market. The Ministry of Trade, Economy, and Industry, together with the JSCA (Japan Smart Community Alliance), designated the ECHONET Consortium's ECHONET Lite protocol as the country's recommended standard for HEMS equipment. Japan aims to achieve "Society 5.0" in the future through the full utilization of technological innovation including IoT, AI and Big Data derived from the fourth industrial revolution.
The growth of Smart home market is attributed to factors such as significantly growing IoT market, cost reduction measures enabled by home automation systems, large number of manufacturers expanding their product portfolios, and increasing importance of home monitoring from remote locations. With the increasing demand of smart home devices, security and privacy breach is also increasing. The issues pertaining to privacy and security breach are restraining the growth of the smart home market.

Control and Connectivity is at the heart of smart home solutions, enabling everything from smart appliances to lighting, from temperature control to security.
