Global Smart Water Meter Market, Forecast to 2026

Global Smart Water Meter Market, Forecast to 2026

Water stress is a major cause of concern across the globe. Optimal water resource management, reducing leaks, and achieving lower non-revenue water (NRW) are the key challenges faced by utilities or entities managing water allocation. One of the key initiatives to promote water conservation across the globe is the installation of smart water meters. Smart water meters conserve water by monitoring usage and detecting leaks. Additionally, its billing transparency and efficiency helps to effectively address NRW.

Research Scope
The global smart water meter study estimates the revenue in 2017 to be $1.1 billion and the unit shipment, 12.5 million. Frost & Sullivan has presented a breakdown of unit shipment and revenue forecasts for the following regions: North America, South America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific (ex. China), and China. The study also analyses regional hotspots, drivers, restraints, and prominent players, along with their market share in each region. Further, it presents the details of upcoming LPWAN technologies and its impact across regions, and the new business models being aggressively pursued by leading players to enhance their prominence in a highly fragmented and price-sensitive market.

Research Highlights
The key component of the smart water meter is the communication module. Automated meter reading (AMR) and automated metering infrastructure (AMI) are the main technology segments. IoT-enabled AMI smart water meters powered by cellular or non-cellular low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies are gaining market share due to their efficiency and added advantages like real-time usage data visualization, improved billing efficiency, leak detection, machine to machine communication, and resource optimization.

This global smart water market study provides a detailed analysis of market trends, regional hotspots, and forecasts of unit shipment and revenue trends for the forecast period between 2016 and 2026.
