MILTON KEYNES, England, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Home Speaker shipments reached 5.9 million units globally in 2016 according to Strategy Analytics and will grow tenfold by 2022 driven by improved accuracy in speech recognition, new compelling use cases and multi-language support. Amazon's Echo line of devices currently dominates the market but competition is set to intensify this year as Google Home enters its first full year of sales and other Wi-Fi speaker manufacturers begin to build microphones and access to the major virtual assistant platforms into their own products. Strategy Analytics' associated Global Intelligent Home Speaker report is published here: http://sa-link.cc/1ju "Intelligent Home Speakers such as Amazon Echo and Google Home are a causing a wave of excitement amongst consumers," says David Watkins, Director, Connected Home Devices at Strategy Analytics. "The promise of conversational, hands-free interaction with the Internet is a very compelling one; although the current crop of intelligent speakers has their obvious limitations, future iterations will solve many of the early frustrations and deliver a range of new use cases such as voice calling, travel planning and remote learning and healthcare services. Furthermore we expect advancements in voice biometrics and voice authentication will help ease privacy concerns and make the devices more adaptable to multi-user environments." In spite of the strong growth forecast, Strategy Analytics cautions that adoption of Intelligent Home Speakers across different markets will be dependent upon the integration of localized services with the relevant voice platform as well as near-human levels of accuracy in terms of speech recognition and contextual understanding. Cost, however, is expected to be less of a barrier to entry. Bill Ablondi, Director of Strategy Analytics' Smart Home Strategies program comments that "The low cost of intelligent speakers such as Amazon's $50 Dot is leading to impulse purchasing from consumers that will help drive adoption of the technology well beyond the tech savvy gadget lover. However, new compelling use cases must emerge to ensure that these devices do not end up collecting dust after an initial period of experimentation."

BOSTON, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent survey from the In-Vehicle UX (IVX) group at Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com) has assessed consumer interest in conducting several aspects of the vehicle purchasing experience online. Respondents in the US and China exhibited the greatest interest in most activities including choosing vehicle specs, estimating cost and taxes, and checking nearby dealer inventories. Comparatively, respondents in Western Europe were less open to conducting vehicle purchasing tasks online. Respondents across all regions were least likely to be interested in conducting credit-related tasks over the internet. Surveying consumers in the US, the UK and China, Strategy Analytics has found that checking dealer inventory, choosing vehicle specs, and estimating fees or taxes were the top three activities consumers were most interested in across all regions. Premium vehicle owners in China exhibited higher interest than owners of other vehicle classes in most online activities, and respondents aged 18-24 and 55 or over were most likely to show lower interest in the listed online activities. Derek Viita Senior Analyst and report author commented, "With over 60% of respondents across all regions exhibiting interest in checking nearby dealer inventory and estimating fees or taxes over the internet when considering purchasing a vehicle, OEMs should make it a priority to partner with dealers and optimize such services online. This would allow OEMs to involve themselves in the early stage of consumers' vehicle purchasing decision process." Chris Schreiner, Director IVX, added, "However, it is important to recognize that respondents did not exhibit strong interest in the ability to chat with a dealer online, indicating that many of the consumers surveyed do not want involvement with a dealer during the process of online research. Such capabilities would become important at a later stage of the purchasing and decision making process though, in addition to the ability to check application status over the internet."
