Meters & accessories to be the dominant component-based segment in the global smart water metering market

The smart water metering market in this report has been classified based on components into three segments, namely, meters & accessories, communication, and IT solution. The meters & accessories segment accounted for the largest market size, in terms of value, in 2015. It was followed by the IT solution and communication segments, respectively.

“The AMR segment would dominate the global smart water metering market”

The Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) segment is estimated to be the largest market for smart water metering in 2016. It is a metering technology that collects consumption data from the water meters and transfers it to a central database (in the utility station) for billing and other purposes (one-way communication only). Popular in North America and Europe, other regions have also started to implement this metering infrastructure to reduce non-revenue water. It is less costly when compared to AMI, and hence has a higher market size. However, the AMI market is projected to grow at the highest rate because of its superiority.

North America is the dominant market for smart water metering

North America dominates the smart water metering market, and Europe is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period. In North America, the growth of the smart water metering market can be attributed to focus on water monitoring & prevention of water leakage and the repair & upgrade of aging water infrastructure. Meanwhile, several smart water meter rollouts are taking place in countries such as the U.K., Germany, and France, which would drive growth in the European region.

The demand for smart water metering can be directly linked to the development of water infrastructure and investments by the water utilities. Lack of capital and limited government support could restrain growth to a certain extent, and high CAPEX and OPEX associated with smart water metering is a significant challenge of this market. However, water harvesting and wastewater management offer lucrative growth opportunities for the smart water metering market
