Strong Global Growth as the Smart Market Accelerates
As the smart grid continues to develop, metering is a key building block in the process, enabling the accurate measurement of consumption and allowing utility companies to move toward real-time pricing and policies to try and reduce peak demand. The market is being driven by increased regulations and, in some markets, a desire to minimise non-technical losses. For this research study - the global advanced metering infrastructure market - leading participants in the smart meter market were interviewed to understand the latest developments in this market. The study period is from 2010 to 2017 and the forecast period is from 2012 to 2017.
• Spain is currently the most important market in Europe as the major utilities are rolling out nationwide implementation.
• Scandinavian countries are also nearing completion of their roll outs.
• Strong growth is predicted from 2015 onwards as France and the United Kingdom (UK) begin roll outs.
• It currently accounts for approximately X% of the global shipments, although its meters are cheaper and have lower functionality than those found in Europe and North America (NA).
• The market is driven by mandated smart metering roll out in Australia (Victoria); New Zealand is market led.
• South Korea and Japan are the next big hot spots after China.
• The stimulus funding (which drove the market in recent years) has dried up. Unit shipments will decline as project focus is moving toward smaller utilities and supplying services to existing meters.
• Minimising non-technical losses is the key driver in this market. The absence of any mandatory regulations is a major concern.
• The MEA market is still at a very early stage of development. With a few exceptions, such as Dubai, there has been minimal AMI investment with the focus on project trials.
• GCC states such as Qatar and Bahrain are likely to implement metering in the next few years.
