The smart grid market size is projected to grow from USD 20.83 billion in 2017 to USD 50.65 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.4%. Government policies and legislative mandates, regional government initiatives for smart meter roll-outs, increasing demand for integration of renewable energy sources, and improved grid reliability and efficient outage response are some of the factors driving the smart grid market. The base year considered for this study is 2016 and the forecast period considered is 2017–2022.

Objectives of the Study

  • To describe and forecast the global smart grid market on the basis of types (software, hardware, and services) and regions
  • To forecast the market size of the 5 main regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America
  • To analyze subsegments with respect to the individual growth trends, prospects, and contributions to the total market
  • To provide detailed information regarding the major factors influencing the growth of the smart grid market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges)
  • To analyze the opportunities in the market for stakeholders and to provide details of competitive landscape for the major players
  • To profile key players and comprehensively analyze their core competencies and positioning
  • To track and analyze competitive developments, such as mergers and acquisitions; new product developments; and partnerships, agreements, and collaborations in the market

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the smart grid market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research, such as transport associations, transportation journals, and databases, including D&B Hoovers, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Factiva, to identify and collect information useful for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the market. 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 smart grid 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 people, 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 arrive at the exact statistics for all segments. The breakdown of primary profiles is depicted in the below figure:

The smart grid market is expected to grow from USD 20.83 Billion in 2017 to USD 50.65 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.4%. Increased demand for integration of renewable energy source across the globe, and government policies and mandates for sustainable energy are some of the driving factors for this market.

The smart grid market report has been broadly classified on the basis of software into Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), smart grid distribution management, smart grid communication, grid asset management, substation automation, and billing and customer information system; on the basis of hardware into AMI meters, sensors, networking hardware, PLC and others (load tap changers and protective relay); on the basis of services into consulting, deployment and integration, and support and maintenance; and on the basis of regions into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America.

The smart grid communication software segment is expected to have the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Smart grid communication enables hardware and software to work together to form a mesh network, enabling a utility grid with intelligent features such as substation automation, distribution automation, energy management, real-time control, self-healing, and increased reliability and security. This would help operators in decision-making and better scheduling of utility storage and distribution.

Sensors for smart grid is expected to gain the highest traction in the smart grid market during the forecast period. Sensor is the pivotal hardware component that provides real-time data of the electric grid. Installed in electric grids, sensors improve utility operation and performance. They help in efficient power management at the transmission, distribution, and consumption levels and play an important role in the integration of power from distributed resources. An increased number of smart grid projects in North America, Europe, and Asia would tremendously increase the demand of the sensors.

The deployment and integration services segment is expected to have the largest market share and projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Deployment and integration services help in reducing the deployment and integration time. These services are crucial for developing end-to-end solutions for the smart grid market.

Smart Grid Market

North America is expected to hold the largest market in the forecast period. Favorable government policies and mandates in North America help in fueling the smart grid market. In addition, the regional governments in the US are promoting AMI meters and smart grid solutions. For instance, in June 2017, Lubbock Power & Light in Texas, US approved the budget of USD 120 million for updating and renovating existing grid infrastructure. The adoption of smart grid solutions has increased due to the aging existing grid and infrastructure, thus enabling North America to become a highly potential market for smart grid.

The market faces the challenge of inadequate data management, revenue loss occurred due to energy loss, and lack of motivation by electric utilities to improve the grid infrastructure. The major factor that is restraining the growth of the smart grid market is the lack of standardization and uniformity and high initial costs for the deployment of technology solutions.

Some of the key vendors in the smart grid market are General Electric Company (New York, US), ABB Ltd. (Zurich, Switzerland), Siemens AG (Munich, Germany), Schneider Electric SA (Rueil-Malmaison, France), Itron, Inc. (Washington, US), Landis+Gyr (Zug, Switzerland), Aclara Technologies LLC (Missouri, US), Cisco  Systems, Inc. (California, US), Open Systems International, Inc. (Minnesota, US), IBM Corporation  (New York, US), Wipro Ltd. (Karnataka, India), Oracle Corporation (California, US), S&C Electric Company  (Illinois, US), Eaton Corporation Plc (Dublin, Ireland), Kamstrup A/S (Skanderborg, Denmark), Trilliant Holdings, Inc. (North Carolina, US), NexGrid, LLC.  (Virginia, US), Globema (Warsaw, Poland), Tech Mahindra Ltd. (Maharashtra, India), EnerNOC, Inc. (Massachusetts, US), Fujitsu Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan), Infrax Systems Inc. (Texas, US), Esyasoft Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (Karnataka, India), e-Smart Systems Pvt. Ltd. (Delhi, India), and Grid4C (Texas, US). These players have adopted various strategies, such as new product developments, acquisitions, and partnerships to serve the smart grid market. Continuous technology innovation is an area of focus for these players to maintain their competitive position in the market and promote customer satisfaction.
