Smart Home ETF Presents the Opportunity to Profit from Early-Mover Advantages

The smart home evolution is starting to influence all areas of our daily lives, changing the way we shop, work, communicate and entertain. Already, a new and smart ecosystem is starting to develop around our homes with many opportunities to invest, and that is to say, Smart Home ETF we offer allows you to gain access to them.

The Smart Home Evolution is in Full Swing

The smart home evolution started long before the voice- or sensor-controlled products we see today. Technology has been changing our homes for more than 200 years; the smart home is just the next step in that evolution.

Whether it is work-from-home, virtual workouts, entertainment, delivery services, online shopping, or even telemedicine, many areas of life are increasingly being brought from the “outside” world into our homes. Below are the five steps in the home’s evolution, finishing with today’s smart home.

Powerful Trends Support the Smart Home Development

In its ultimate form, a smart home anticipates the needs of its residents. It empowers them to fine-tune their environment to their needs and activities (e.g. working, learning, entertaining, caring, shopping, etc.). Developments in the three areas of technology, consumer behavior and digital business models are supporting this evolution of the smart home, which is now accessible through VanEck's Smart Home ETF.

Smart home progressing via different developments

              Smart Home ETF reinforces the evolution of smart home

  1. Technology: As the function of the home changes, and the house caters to more of our needs, smart technologies (smart grids, communication networks, smart appliances such as smart speakers) support these changes.
  2. Adapted Behavior: As consumers spend more time living digitally, the way they spend their time and money changes. They work from home, participate in digital entertainment (streaming, gaming) and turn to digital services (such as telehealth).
  3. New Business Models: Increasingly, companies are offering smart home services, using business models backed by digital technology. Products are delivered to the doorstep as part of a (subscription) service within a broader smart home ecosystem.
