The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) market is expected to grow from USD 4.48 Billion in 2015 to USD 9.19 Billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.5% during the forecast period. The deployment of AMI solutions enables energy utilities to align energy shortages, revenue protection, load management, and customer service improvement. With the growing energy needs in developing economies and improved customer service level and utility efficiency, the demand for AMI solutions and services has grown tremendously across all countries. Increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) is driving this market. For the forecast period, the AMI analytics segment is expected to grow significantly. Presently, Europe is the largest market for AMI solutions and services.

The report aims at estimating the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market size and future growth potential of the market across different segments, such as devices, solutions, services, and regions.

The years considered for the study are as follows:

  • Base year – 2014
  • Estimated year – 2015
  • Projected year – 2020
  • Forecast period – 2015 to 2020

For company profiles in the report, 2014 has been considered. Where information is unavailable for the base year, the prior year has been considered.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research, such as National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), Interoperable Device Interface Specifications (IDIS), and American Public Power Association. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global AMI market from the revenue of the key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key industry personnel, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and to arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of the primary discussion participants is depicted in the below figure:

The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) market size is expected to grow from USD 4.48 Billion in 2015 to USD 9.19 Billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.5%. AMI is one of the primary steps for smart grid optimization. AMI assists utility companies to manage energy demands by identifying the peak time of load. Moreover, AMI also helps consumers manage their energy consumption as well as Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate. This has led to increased implementation of AMI.

Government organizations all across the globe are issuing regulatory mandates and legislative directives regarding construction of smart grids as well as deployment of smart meters. In line with this, the European Union mandate aims to replace 80% of all the traditional power meters with AMI, by 2020. Moreover, in Japan, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) plans to deploy 27 million electric smart meters and create an integrated energy management platform that connects to smart devices in homes and businesses. These government mandates are the major drivers of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market landscape across the globe. In addition, rising energy demand and the need for improved customer service level and utility efficiency also aid the growth of the AMI market.

The meter data management solution is expected to account for the highest market share in the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market globally. Meter Data Management (MDM) maintains the meter data repository for a limited amount of time before it goes to a data warehouse and makes this data available to authorized systems. Vendors of MDM are now adopting a modular approach by developing modules that would help utilities in a number of different applications, such as customer billing, credit management, outage management, and meter asset management.

North America is estimated to hold the largest market share and dominate the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market in the year 2015. Further, North America is expected to decrease slightly during the forecast period, as most of the AMI projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 2009 for investor-owned larger utilities in the U.S. are expected to reach completion by early 2018. The AMI security solution is expected to have the least growth rate during the forecast period. However, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is projected to have the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

Advanced Metering Infrastructure Market

Inadequate financial incentives for utilities, and interoperability and standard interface are the major restraints of the AMI market. The major vendors in the Advanced Metering Infrastructure market include IBM Corporation (U.S.), General Electric (U.S.), Elster Group GmbH (Germany), Schneider Electric (France), Sensus (U.S.), and Tieto Corporation (U.S.). These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as new product launches, partnerships, contracts, collaborations, acquisitions, and expansions to increase their footprints globally.
