The Australian custom install market is suffering from a lack of qualified technicians, a new industry survey conducted by CEDIA has revealed.

CEDIA Market Research Insights Australia 2020/2021 overwhelmingly identified a lack of qualified technicians as the biggest hurdle facing the Australian market. Among those who were surveyed, the work-from-home movement was identified as the biggest opportunity and audio was identified as the biggest growth category in 2020.

The first-of-its-kind study looks to address previously unanswered questions about the size and scope of Australia’s residential technology integration industry, and the challenges facing the industry and workforce.

 The report, available free for CEDIA members and $A999 for non-members, was compiled with input from 230 integrators and 25 suppliers and reveals the number of full-time integrators working in the Australian market, locations where integrators are based, the level of industry education, the scope of influence electricians and registered cablers have on the Australian smart home sector and a list of top industry influencers

“Having access to this insight at a time when the global economy is facing post-COVID recovery, causing businesses to rethink their strategy, will be insightful for integrators and distributors locally, and the global manufacturers who are active in the market,” says CEDIA Vice President Engagement and Global Development, Wendy Griffiths. “CEDIA will be better positioned to support our members and develop regionally-specific benefits and programmes. Thank you to those who supported this research, enabling us to categorically say that the results are an accurate reflection of the market.”
