- For instance, in December 2022, Google, a tech giant, introduced new remote-control features into its Google TV app. As a part of this, it updated the remote design by adding a collapsible panel at the bottom rather than opening a separate page for Android TV OS devices. It also permitted users to cast their movies and TV shows on numerous streaming devices from a single device.
Moreover, the increasing adoption of home automation systems among the population, driven by increased convenience and lower utility bills, is expected to widen the demand for remote control systems in the coming years.
However, the lower awareness about universal remote controls and the rising use of smartphones in place of them are likely to hamper the growth of the market.
Rising development of modern remote controls
The rising technological advancements in household appliances are contributing to the new product launches in remote control systems. For instance, in September 2023, Huawei unveiled a large smart TV, the V5 Pro, with the Lingxi pointing remote control. This TV is available in two sizes, such as 85-inch and 98-inch, and has Super MiniLED screens. Its latest remote allows users to point out on the screen rather than clicking real buttons or sliding fingers across remote buttons. This also enables users to play mobile games on TV with the application of the air touch feature. These innovations are expected to enhance product innovations and upgrades among the companies in the study period, contributing to the increased availability of universal remote controls market to larger consumers with the additional features.
The market is primarily segmented based on component, remote type, function and region.

By Component Analysis
Hardware segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period
The hardware segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by the ease of application among the younger to the elderly population, as they are traditionally more aware of TV operations using hardware remotes. The increased comfort of operating a TV with buttons and intuitive interfaces plays a significant role among consumers, as they are perceived to be vital.
The software segment dominated the market, largely attributable to the rising adoption of smartphones among the population. The ongoing trend of smart homes and integration with IoT is driving the demand for software remote solutions as they enable users to operate multiple devices instantly.
By Remote Type Analysis
Learning remote segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022
The learning remote segment accounted for the largest share. The compatibility of this remote enables users to operate multiple electrical appliances, including air conditioners, light devices, and more, making it a cost-effective option for consumers. The multi-band remote segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the next few years on account of the ease of set-up due to the user-friendly configuration, removing the need for manual programming.
By Function Analysis
Audio devices segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022
The audio devices segment held a significant market share in revenue in 2022, which is highly accelerated due to the surging demand for home entertainment after the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, driven by stringent lockdowns that led to the adoption of audio and video devices among the population, which in a way contributed to the demand for audio remote controls in the market. The ongoing developments of remote controls, particularly for audio devices, are expected to favor the growth of the market in the study period.
Asia Pacific region registered the largest share of global market in 2022
The Asia Pacific region held the global market with the largest market share in 2022 and is expected to continue its dominance over the study period. The presence of a larger population in the region, increasing disposable income, and the introduction of lower-cost consumer electronics by countries like China are facilitating the demand for universal remote controls in the region. For example, in September 2023, Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Smart Fire TV 4K series in India, along with the new remote with TV guide buttons, mute, up/down, and shortcuts to additional apps. It also has Alexa, an AI voice assistant, which can assist users in TV operations. This rising product offering of smart and advanced consumer electronics in the region may stimulate the need for efficient remote controls during the forecast timeframe.
The North American region will grow at a healthy CAGR, owing to the existence of larger producers of remote-control systems and rising product innovations in the region. In March 2023, Ztv, LLC, introduced a universal TV remote with a simplified sleep timer, designed to work with numerous TV brands and models as a tool to improve the quality of users' sleep and prevent them from waking up at night to switch off the plugin as it automatically turns off TV after users fall asleep.
It improves convenience and works as a sleep aid device, influencing the demand from health-conscious consumers around the world and leading to an increased demand for exports. As more companies step forward to innovate new remote controls to cater to ongoing consumer demand, there will be a huge opportunity for market growth in this region.
