Smart Speakers - Teardowns and Analysis


Smart speakers are ramping up. Teardown is breaking them down.

Although Amazon has essentially created the smart speaker category with its Echo line, Google and others will be making the market increasingly competitive over the next few years. With the current market dynamics, it's more apparent than ever that benchmarking analysis should be an essential part of any original equipment manufacturer (OEM), component manufacturer or end-user business plan. It provides the crucial intelligence needed to:

  • Determine product competitiveness - Comparing your design and costs to your competitors enables you to assess similarities and differences and implement optimal solutions.

  • Accelerate new product design - Having accurate visibility into the costs of components yields earlier insights into business model feasibility for new products without a cost history.

  • Improve negotiating power - Knowing your supplier’s cost structure allows you to increase your negotiating power.

IHS Markit's Teardowns offer an in-depth analysis, along with annotated digital photos of all sub-assemblies, highlighting regions by function, with manufacturers’ names, part numbers and access to an online tool with detailed component specifications.
