This partnership aims to leverage SKYX's innovative smart products and Ruee Appliances'  manufacturing capabilities. The collaboration is set to introduce both operational efficiencies, financial support, and a significant enhancement in gross margins for SKYX's products.

Rani Kohen, the Executive Chairman of SKYX, highlighted the partnership as a milestone for the company's expansion strategy. This development follows SKYX's recent announcement of record annual sales of US$58.8 million, indicating robust growth and an aggressive push into global markets. The collaboration not only promises to bolster SKYX's financial backbone but also aligns with its vision to transform residential and commercial buildings with cutting-edge technology.

On April 25, Noble initiated coverage on SKYX Platforms Corp. with an Outperform rating and a US$5 price target, highlighting its potential in the smart home technology market.

Maxim's forecast suggests a promising future, with US$82 million in projected 2024 revenue and a pathway to positive EBITDA by Q4 2025.

Why Home Tech?

The global smart home market is undergoing rapid growth, driven by significant technological advancements and evolving consumer lifestyles. According to Precedence Research and industry reports, the market is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.88% from 2023 to 2032, suggesting a burgeoning consumer appetite for smart technology integration in homes. The sector's growth is closely tied to the increasing adoption of smart devices that enhance home automation, security, and energy management, which are becoming pivotal in modern living spaces.

In North America, the demand for connected security systems and smart appliances is soaring. "Consumers are increasingly investing in devices that enhance home security and offer energy savings," Statista reported. This interest is propelled by the convenience of managing home devices remotely via smartphones or voice assistants. Meanwhile, in Europe, the focus remains on sustainability and energy efficiency, with smart thermostats and energy-monitoring devices gaining traction.

On April 25, Noble initiated coverage on SKYX Platforms Corp. with an Outperform rating and a US$5 price target.

The Asia Pacific region represents the fastest-growing market, driven by rapid urbanization and an expanding middle-class demographic. Here, the market dynamics are influenced by "the rapid uptake of smartphones, the internet, and other technologically advanced devices," which are becoming essential components of a modern lifestyle.

The push toward smart homes also reflects a broader societal shift towards more sustainable and efficient living arrangements. As the technology becomes more accessible and the benefits more apparent, the integration of smart home systems is likely to become more prevalent across various regions, making advanced, smart, and safe homes a new standard in residential and commercial buildings.


The collaboration with Ruee Appliances is poised to provide substantial benefits to SKYX, including enhanced financial stability, increased production capabilities, and broader market access. This partnership is part of SKYX's broader strategy to enhance its market penetration and capitalize on its extensive patent portfolio in smart platform technologies.

In addition to this partnership, SKYX continues to strengthen its market position through various agreements, including a significant five-year global licensing partnership with General Electric. These developments are indicative of SKYX's commitment to innovation and growth in the smart home sector, aiming to make advanced, smart, and safe buildings the new standard. The collaboration is expected to drive further innovations and improve the company's competitiveness in the international market.

Further emphasizing the stock's potential, Maund analyzed the stock charts of SKYX, indicating a forming Double Bottom, which he interprets as a bullish sign.

He suggested that the stock is undervalued, stating, "It is laughable and ridiculous that after all the technological progress of the past 100 - 150 years . . .  you still have to climb up on a sometimes rickety stepladder and mess about with a screwdriver . . .  SKYX's plug and play technology the process is easy and fast." His strong endorsement reflects a belief in the transformative impact of SKYX's technologies on the smart home and lighting industries.

I think SKYX's story is one of those that will be on everyone's lips not many years hence, and this remains very much a ground-floor opportunity to be a part of it as an investor, I.M.O."
