Prepared by Bill Curtis from Moor Insights & Strategy and published on December 21, 2023, this report provides a top-down analysis of the smart home device connectivity standard Matter, focusing on its transformative effects on consumer electronics (CE) product strategy. Matter offers unified connectivity for different devices, maximizing the total available market and simplifying product design and development for CE manufacturers. As an integrated standard built into hundreds of millions of devices, Matter supports the integration of artificial intelligence solutions. It also enables autonomous home operations by supporting energy management, security, safety, HVAC optimization, and health and wellness. The main takeaway is that Matter makes CE products easier to build, buy, and use, while helping to grow the smart home ecosystem.
