Opportunity Analysis for Smart Water Metering in Asia-Pacific

Opportunity Analysis for Smart Water Metering in Asia-Pacific

The major threats for the water industry in Asia-Pacific (APAC) that may necessitate significant adoption of smart grid solutions are:

Water scarcity

Aging Infrastructure

Population growth and urbanization

Climate change

Smart water meters capture relevant data, monitoring and analysis of which can increase efficiency of water utilities thereby reducing operational expenditure (OPEX).

The developing economies in APAC including India, China, and Indonesia are suffering due to a vicious cycle of non-revenue water (NRW) and as a result the adoption of smart water meter (SWM) solutions is expected to see more than 􂀀% growth annually post 2015 in the region.

While developed APAC economies will mostly offer SWM replacement opportunities, the emerging economies will offer high scope for fresh installation as they lack a well-established SWM infrastructure.

Regulations and policies of developing nations will play an important role in development of the smart water meters market in APAC.

With significant investments expected from the APAC developing nations, the SWM market will have strong growth which will reach a peak in 2020.
