Amazon and Google will continue their dominant run in the smart speaker industry for the foreseeable future according to new estimates from Canalys.
The market research firm says that by the end of 2018, the number of smart speakers in use worldwide will approach the 100 million mark.
The figure represents significant category growth as the install base sat at under 50 million units at the end of 2017.
Canalys research analyst Vincent Thielke said the US is the world leader in smart speaker adoption but describes China as a sleeping giant.
Smart speakers have been readily available for years but now, we’re starting to see adoption outside of the home.
