Connected CE purchases show steady decline since 2008

“Today, consumers are satisfied with many of their existing products, provided they are working well,” said Tricia Parks, President, CEO, and Founder, Parks Associates. “Many product categories are following predictable patterns. Consumers value their connected CE products, but there is no big purchase buzz except for personal assistants with voice, particularly the Amazon Echo. Its ‘wow factor’ is translating into true consumer excitement, interest, and adoption.”

Parks Associates finds smart speakers with personal assistants, such as the Amazon Echo/Dot/Tap and Google Home, earn the highest NPS (Net Promoter Score) of all surveyed CE devices. The excitement generated by the Amazon Echo has set off a round of competitive entries and new options.
