Shifting focus toward the enhancement of the energy mix to fulfil the growing energy demand has resulted in the adoption of various sustainable systems including smart meters. Respective governments across the globe are adopting the fundamental restructuring of energy supply systems that will lead to integration challenges including flow inaccuracy, overutilization, and load mismatch. The deployment of smart meters can limit the underlined issues by establishing a secure communication network. These systems bridge the communication gap between consumers and utilities which in turn will help in exchanging the real-time consumption information.

COVID- 19 Impact

The power sector is the necessity and backbone for the economy, thereby the industry has not witnessed any significant impact of COVID- 19. Globally there has been an increase in investments across smart grid infrastructure which further gives the positive indication toward the market growth. Organizations and electrical utilities are focused on the installation of smart meters across the region. Major contractors, suppliers and manufacturers across the regions including Europe, Middle East & Africa and Latin America are focused on the advancement of their prevailing grid infrastructure.

AMI Electric Meter Market Trends

Favourable government-led plans along with growing electricity demand across developing regions have marked considerable potential for the smart metering industry. The regulatory shift toward the development of smart grid infrastructure in line with the flourishing renewable industry across regions will positively drive the business landscape. Although the lack of effective grid infrastructure along with poor fund flow has been curbing growth potential, increasing number of local meter manufacturers along with government rollout mandates have rationalized the industry dynamics.

The continuous expansion and increasing share of renewables across centralized & decentralized grid infrastructure require an effective approach toward grid management. The existing grid systems across major nations already incorporate certain elements of smart functionality but are being merely utilized to balance supply & demand. These networks incorporate information and communication technology across every facet of electricity generation, consumption, and delivery. This will result in minimizing environmental impacts, & costs by improving efficiency.
