Smart Meters Market

Smart Meters - Overview

A smart meter is an electric device, similar to a traditional meter. Nevertheless, it is a convenient alternative to traditional smart meters. A smart meter measures and records the consumption of electric energy or gas, voltage levels, current, and power factor. Not only does it record these details, but also reports at various points along the way. It also provides real-time information to users on their energy use. Smart meters overcome the limitations of traditional meters and even enable utility companies to charge at different prices according to season and demand sceanario.

Global Smart Meters Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Focus Towards Efficient Energy Management

The growing consumer awareness regarding their energy consumption and saving is anticipated to present growth opportunities to the global smart meter market in the forecast period. Since smart meters send meter readings automatically to suppliers as well as owners and in real-time, they can assess how much energy they are consuming and manage it accordingly and efficiently. These devices help to generate consciousness towards their energy consumption and motivate the consumers to use energy-efficient electric devices.

Favorable Government Initiatives for Installation of Smart Meters

The governments of various regions are taking initiatives to boost the adoption of smart meters in their respective countries. They are funding the installation process as well as collaborating with the utility companies by facilitating the replacement of traditional meters with smart meters. For instance, the UK government is laying out new plans to boost the installation of smart meters across the country to cut energy bills and carbon emissions. The energy suppliers are given a time limit to ensure the installation of smart meters in households and small businesses.

Restraints

High Risks of Data Breaches and Privacy Issues

The smart meters are fitted with IoT sensors that perform the primary tasks of recording and transferring user’s data. However, this also raises the risks of data theft and security breaches and puts a huge question on the user’s privacy. Although the companies are significantly focusing on strengthening the data protection tools into their smart meter offerings, the lack of legitimate cybersecurity laws may further act as a huge restraining factor for the growth of the global smart meters market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Smart Meters Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak initially negatively halted the growth of the global smart meters market. This is because of the lockdown restrictions imposed in different parts of the world due to which the smart meter installation activities were temporarily paused. Furthermore, the market also faced a huge shortage of IoT sensors due to the low production of semiconductor chips. However, the global smart meters market is projected to flourish in the post lockdown period due to a significant surge in electricity consumption and a huge burden on the energy sector.

Global Smart Meters Market - By Product Type

Based on product type, the global smart meters market is segmented into smart electric meters, smart gas meters, and smart water meters. The smart electric meters market holds the largest share in the global smart meters market owing to the rising consumption of electricity due to rapid urbanization, increasing usage of electronic devices, and rising number of commercial and industrial facilities. Therefore, the demand for better management of electricity is also increasing. The smart meters are emerging as an effective tool for both users and utility providers, which is driving the overall market growth.

Global Smart Meters Market - By Communication Type

Based on communication type, the global smart meters market is segmented into programmable logic controller, radio-frequency, and cellular. The cellular communication type segment accounts for the largest market share owing to the common use of cellular networks for the transfer of data in the most prominent markets of smart meters such as the Asia-Pacific. Furthermore, the increasing launches of 5G networks in different parts of the world is also facilitating the growth of the cellular communication type.

Global Smart Meters Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global smart meters market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global smart meters market owing to the gradual adoption of smart metering solutions to limit the electricity consumption and boost its efficient management. The governments of various emerging economies such as China, India, Japan, etc., are taking various initiatives such as offering subsidies as well as establishing partnership with utility companies to boost the adoption of smart meters in their respective regions. This is significant propelling the growth of the global smart meters market.
