The GCC Market

The GCC SMART Home and Office Market

The IT sector as a whole has grown in leaps and bounds across the GCC region. Since 2017, individual and customer preferences and perception have shifted to smart technology, products and services.

With the emergence of 5G services, the rise of video-on-demand streaming services and other supportive technologies, there is much more scope for smart homes and offices in the region.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is paving the way for smart, sustainable living, having built the first smart city in 2008, with several more in the development and construction stage and  in the pipeline.

“Smart home entertainment systems and smart lighting solutions are seen to support market growth in the GCC up to 2025.”
