You're likely to shell out more cash for consumer electronics over the next five years as connected hardware grows in popularity, according to Euromonitor.
In a report released on Tuesday, the market intelligence firm noted that a shift in consumer preferences will boost both sales value and volume of high-end products such as smart wearables and LCD televisions by 2021.
"Consumers are much more sophisticated and thus, their expectations have risen too," explained Loo Wee Teck, Euromonitor's head of consumer electronics.
For example, consumers made do with General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and third generation (3G) internet data speeds in the past but they are now demanding for Long-Term Evolution (LTE) services for high speed access, he noted.
Here are some of the products expected to be in hot demand by 2021.
