The residential smart water metering market is poised to account for around USD 3 billion by 2028. The growing demand for end-to-end web monitoring systems coupled with rising consumer awareness for effective water management will positively influence the industry outlook. Moreover, the ongoing usage of intelligent communication modules combined with the wide availability of these units in different meter sizes including long-range coverage and low-power consumption will stimulate the end-to-end product application prospects.

Increasing investments in the development of advanced infrastructure followed by the growing focus on achieving the Smart City objective will foster the product demand. However, remote monitoring, growing water scarcity and robust integration of cybersecurity mechanisms to ensure reliable & secure end-user data consumption will fuel technology adoption in commercial establishments. The ongoing restructuring of water distribution infrastructure will complement the industrial prospects.

Rapid development of reliable and sustainable performance-driven smart metering technologies

The AMI smart water metering market demand is predicted to reach 45 million units by 2028. Continuous investments by utilities for large-scale deployment of smart digital water solutions across their service network will drive the business expansion. Real-time data management, reliable & accurate consumption data, process optimization, enhanced design, reduced labor costs, and extensive battery life is projected to boost these meters installation.

The ability of integrated billing, user-friendly command control systems, online consumer applications, and secure internet payments will positively sway the acceptance of advanced metering units. For instance, in December 2020, Kamstrup entered into a contract with PHYSEC for the development of a LoRaWan compatible smart water meter with LoRaWAN communication technology & advanced security mechanisms. In addition, its ability to offer a high degree of inflow management in line with sensing accuracy will spur the market revenue.

Enhanced water sustainability and monitoring consumer water consumption and real-time reading

The hot smart water metering market is anticipated to experience significant growth owing to their high operation reliability to withstand high temperatures. The ability to monitor and diagnose hot-water consumption patterns along with tracking cost associated with water resource utilization will support the product demand. Moreover, inductive pre-equipment for data modules installation, sealed counter mechanism flow, and suitability of these meters in hot water with temperature ranging from 90 to150 degree Celsius will accelerate its acceptance in residential, commercial, and utility sectors.

Increasing end user spending combined with the rapid adoption of sustainable water-saving solutions across residential & commercial establishments is likely to boost the cold water metering segment. Furthermore, the emphasis on advancing and digitizing water distribution infrastructure in line with increasing water consumption as well as water demand will complement the market. The growing prominence toward sustainable water network followed by minimal deployment costs of cloud-enable technology will surge the industry revenue.

Government initiatives for installation of smart metering solutions
