Despite apparent dominance of Amazon and Google with a combined market share of more than 70%, the competitive landscape for both the companies is expected change in 2018, when Apple will enter in the market with its Siri smart speaker HomePod. HomePod will be equipped with the features of Siri and have wireless access to the entire Apple Music Library. Currently, Apple has fewer products and severe third-party policy, but company’s established market for smart devices is expected to drive the sales of HomePod in coming years.

Further, as gaps or opportunities emerge, tech giants moved swiftly and incisively to build the necessary capability or capacity and launched their products through inorganic growth strategies thus enhancing product portfolio and expanding their customer base in smart speaker market.  For instance, companies such as Harman, Sonos, Onkyo, and Pioneer have partnered with Amazon to integrate Alexa platform into their smart speakers. While, companies such as Bose, Sony, and Onkyo partnered with Google to integrate Google Assistant platform in their smart speakers.

Moreover, to cater the increasing consumer demand and sustain growth, smart speaker offering companies are increasingly investing in R&D activities to offer smarter and more convenient devices. For instance, Amazon is offering USD 100 million in venture capital funding and a software development kit to develop its smart speaker IVA platform Alexa to third -party developers.

Since the inception of smart speaker, new product launch and development was the key strategies adopted by the companies in the smart speaker market, with a share of about 80% followed by partnership and collaboration strategy with a share of 15% in 2017.  Product innovation is expected to drive more comparison amongst consumers and increase device sales.
