The smart water metering market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.23% from 2016 to 2021 to reach USD 5.51 Billion by 2021. Increasing focus towards reducing non-revenue water, retrofitting of aging water infrastructure, and the need for accurate billing are the major factors driving the market.

The report segments the smart water metering market on the basis of application into water utilities and industries. Based on component, the smart water metering market has been categorized into meters & accessories, communication, and IT solution. The market has also been categorized on the basis of type as AMR and AMI. Meters & accessories, which account for the maximum cost among all the components, held the largest market size, in terms of value, in 2015, followed by the IT solution and communication segments, respectively.

In this report, the smart water metering market has been analyzed with respect to five regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. North America is currently the largest market for smart water metering, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Factors such as repair & upgradation of aging water infrastructure and focus on reducing water leakage, preventing water theft, minimizing inaccurate metering, and managing growing water scarcity would positively impact the smart water metering market globally. The figure given below shows the regional scenario of the smart water metering solutions from 2016 to 2021.

Smart Water Metering Market

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

Some of the leading players in the smart water metering market include Itron Inc. (U.S.), Elster Group GmbH (Germany), Sensus (U.S.), Landis+Gyr (Switzerland), and Kamstrup A/S (Denmark), among others. Contracts and agreements was the most common strategy adopted by the top players in the market, constituting more than one-third of the total development share. It was followed by expansions, new product launches, and mergers & acquisitions respectively.
