The report also divided the market by three power sources for smoke detec- t o r s : b a t t e r y p o w e re d , hardwired with a battery backup, and hardwired without a battery backup. In 2016, the battery-pow- ered segment has 60 per- cent of the market, hard- wiring with a battery com- prises about 33 percent and hardwiring without a backup battery has the smallest share of around 6 percent. These market shares will remain mostly the same to 2020, Roy said, with a slight decrease in battery- powered detectors. Integration of detectors into the smart home will be an opportunity for install- ers in this market, Roy said, such as integration with home energy manage- ment systems. "Integration with the IoT … is expected to open new avenues for the mar- ket in terms of revenue," she said. This trend is in a very early phase, Roy said, and a lot of activity is expected in the next fve years. Among smoke detector manufacturers, Kidde leads the market with 25 percent of the total market, fol- lowed by BRK, Honeywell and Siemens, according to Roy.
