Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Smart Thermostat Market

The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 brought unprecedented challenges to the Global Smart Thermostat Market. The market witnessed a significant decline in its growth due to the changing buying behavior of consumers. Even though the time spent at home amidst the pandemic was significantly high, people were more inclined towards buying essential goods rather than investing in smart devices. Hence, the dwindling interest in buying smart devices negatively influenced the growth of the Smart Thermostat Market amidst the pandemic.

Further, the lockdown imposed in the wake of the pandemic negatively impacted the production capacity of smart thermostats owing to the shutdown of manufacturing units. The market is highly dependent on China for hardware. However, China, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, adversely impacted the market's supply chain. Additionally, the US government increased tariffs on Chinese manufactured products, which created immense pressure on smart thermostat manufacturers who are dependent on China for hardware supply.
