Smart Home-Based Beverage Machine Market size is set to surpass USD 2 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The smart home-based beverage machine market is primarily driven by ongoing technological advancements in home appliances. Leading companies are incorporating novel technologies into household appliances to enhance their efficiency and productivity, attributing to the market growth. For instance, in January 2020, Breville introduced the 3X Bluicer Pro, a combination of juicer and blender for enhanced efficiency in smart kitchens. The newly developed machine is integrated with a one-touch program that aids in optimizing the time and speed combination of the juicer.
Growing concerns on the safety and hygiene of outside food will drive the market, resulting in consumers purchasing smart home-based beverage machines to prepare juices or coffee at home. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of water-borne diseases is creating a market demand for water purifying machines. Smart water purifiers are integrated with UV lights that ensure that water is disinfected, preventing several water-borne diseases. The emergence of advanced water purifying technologies, such as Reverse Osmosis (RO), ozone, ultra-filtration, and activated carbon will support smart home-based beverage machine market size expansion.
The major factor challenging the market is the high initial cost of smart home-based beverage machines. Consumers with low disposable income prefer to purchase conventional beverage machines due to their low-initial purchasing cost and low maintenance requirements compared to smart home-based beverage machines.
Furthermore, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global economy. The government enforced lockdowns and restrictions on public movement have led to a temporary shutdown of manufacturing & distribution facilities of several market players. The global economic disruption is expected to cause a slowdown in the market demand in 2020.
