Market Dynamics- Drivers
According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, there are around 120+ million formal MSMEs operating across the world with 89+ million operating in emerging economies such as India, China, and Southeast Asia countries. Formal MSMEs are more common in high-income economies such as OECD, non-OECD group, and the EU. However, in low and middle-income economies, MSME density is growing at a faster pace, especially in the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, South Asia and East Asia, and Pacific regions. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global digital door lock system market during the forecast period.
Markets such as India, China, and the Southeast Asian countries are expected to emerge as new economic destinations inviting businesses from across the world into different industry verticals. Initiatives from stable governments across these countries ensure smooth economic development that favors a peaceful investing environment. For instance, India, the Central government aims to facilitate investments in technology, resources, and scientific applications; programs such as “Make in India” are being commissioned to achieve this goal. The program will lead to employment generation, as well as the setting up of more small and mid-sized formal enterprises supporting large corporations across different industry verticals, allowing private investments. Therefore, these factors are expected to propel the global digital door lock system market growth over the forecast period.
Cost-efficient products can present major growth opportunities for key market players. Consumers are seeking products that offer value-for-money and enhanced features. Currently, companies offer products and services that most people cannot afford. Other overhead costs make the situation even worse for large-scale global customer acceptance. On the contrary, customers will be more than happy to use those services that give them better value for their money and greater quality.
Another opportunity lies with addressing issues that customers generally face, like limited brand awareness and unfamiliarity with the advancements occurring in home security solutions. Increased market presence and customer touch points would overall result in greater brand awareness. In most parts of the world, people are still not very well informed about the availability of low-cost alternative door lock solutions in the market. The opportunity lies with targeting untouched markets and making the most of being the first and the best.

Market Dynamics- Restraints
Digital door locks are typically is used in residential spaces where a number of people renting homes. Homeownership has been in decline in the recent past due to a steep rise in property prices across the world. Furthermore, those working in the private sector are more prone to changing locations with frequency, especially if they have migrated away from their home towns. People who are renting usually do not want to invest big in their temporary rental properties, which ultimately do not belong to them. On the contrary, landlords show the least interest in digital door lock technologies due to existing renting price structures, which could lead to extra investment. Therefore, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global digital door lock system market during the forecast period.
Although consumers are aware of the need for installing hi-tech digital door lock systems, they have little to no knowledge about the latest equipment or reliable companies that offer satisfactory services at a reasonable cost. IT literacy plays a major role in making the right decisions in choosing the best deal according to the need and available options. Low penetration of high-speed Internet and limited IT interaction globally have resulted in limited awareness about home-security-related options available around the globe. According to the World Bank, in 2014, around 45% of the global population had used the Internet. That figure is rising at an average rate of 2% as compared to 2013. Therefore, these factors are expected to hamper the global digital door lock system market growth over the forecast period.

A digital door lock system comprises various components like an auto-recognition keypad, proximity sensor, digital keypad, voice command module, and photoelectric beam. The auto-recognition keypad authenticates the access code provided by the user and performs the necessary operations in seconds. Upon activation of the voice command module, the user may either open or close the door of the house. The proximity sensor detects movement in front and behind the door and activates the digital keypad if any such movement is detected. The digital door lock system comes with automatic and manual adjustment features that enable the users to fine-tune the level of protection available against unwanted access by others.
Rapidly growing micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and increasing investments and economic growth in emerging markets is driving growth of the digital door lock system market. As per the MSME Ministry data, as of May 16, 2021, Registered micro-enterprises stood at ~ 28 lakh (93%), followed by small enterprises at 1.78 lakh (6%) and midsized enterprises at 24,657 (1%) in India. The Indian MSMEs sector contributes about 29% towards the GDP through its national and international trade. Moreover, growing smart homes around the globe is again propelling growth of the market.
Low IT literacy among consumers and decreasing ownership-to-renting ratio worldwide are factors expected to restrict growth of the market.
