Australia's Internet of Things at home market grew 55 percent in 2017 to reach AU$583 million, according to Telsyte, driven by a rapid uptake of smart speakers and increasing internet connectivity for appliances such as air conditioners and security cameras. The Telsyte Australian IoT@Home Market Study 2018 revealed that the average Australian household now has 17.1 connected devices in 2018, up from 13.7 in 2017. Telsyte said an "internet-connected device explosion" will drive this number to 37, or 381 million devices nationally, by 2022. The Internet of Things explained: What the IoT is, and where it's going next. "Building connectivity into consumer products will allow manufacturers to develop new business models and provide intelligent services that not only change consumers' lifestyles, but disrupt a number of traditional industries," said Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi.
