PRLog - June 20, 2012 - LONDON -- Smarter metering that delivers a greater awareness and opportunity for decision-making over energy and utility usage is being implemented now, globally. But who is going to pay? Government direction and investment? Large-scale utility roll out? The consumer? Is your company benefiting from this roll-out of smart meters? Visiongain has determined that the value of the global smart meter market will reach $7bn in 2012.
The Global Smart Meter Market 2012-2022
Visiongain calculates that as of December 2010, meters enhanced with AMR technology accounted for approximately 32% of the gas, electricity and water meters in North America and approximately 3% of the meters in Europe. While those enhanced with AMI technology accounted for only 15% of the gas, electricity and water meters in North America and 13% of meters in European countries, with only minimal penetration rates elsewhere. With progressive countries in the energy metering market such as Italy and Sweden having over 90% (2011) smart meter implementation it is clear how much scope there is for growth within the smart metering market –with Germany and the UK having fewer than 5% penetration (2011).
How much is going to be spent in regional smart metering markets for implementation of smart electricity infrastructure between 2012 and 2022? Who are the leading companies in the smart metering industry? What are their best products? Where are the growth opportunities over the next decade - in which regions and with which type of technology? Which utility companies are already actioning the best practice? How is it being paid for in each country? These critical questions and many more are definitively answered in this comprehensive report.
