Global AMI Tracker 4Q17

Smart Meter Projects: Project Tracking, Regional Analysis, and Market Shares

The smart electric meter market remains strong as developed markets continue to mature through a mix of new deployments and second-generation upgrades. Meanwhile, developing markets are showing promise as new pilot- and commercial-scale projects continue to emerge. Since the release of Navigant Research’s Global AMI Tracker in 2Q 2017, the North American market has seen several new project announcements (Florida Power & Light [FPL], New York State Electric and Gas [NYSEG], Long Island Power Authority, and Rochester Gas & Electric), particularly within the emerging New York market. Outside of the US, Canada is seeing a lull in project activity; most of the country’s major utilities have reached near full penetration of their meter fleets.

In Europe, smart electric meter activity remains high as multiple national rollouts continue in varying stages of deployment. The Asia Pacific market remains fragmented, with a subset of the region’s major countries engaging in large-scale projects while many others show limited to no activity. Latin America remains an underdeveloped market, as only a select few countries are pursuing significant deployments, most notably Brazil and Mexico. While the Middle East & Africa has also been slow to adopt AMI, countries like Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates have announced large-scale projects. Africa is still inhibited by financial constraints, though more high level activity is emerging from countries like Egypt, Nigeria, and South Africa.

This Navigant Research report provides an analysis of global utility smart meter projects. It tracks data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, AMI communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) vendors. The Tracker also includes an examination of the technologies, timeframes, and vendor selections for AMI deployments around the world, along with vendor selection share analysis for North America.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are the key smart meter projects around the world?
  • Which utilities are actively engaged in smart meter deployments on a worldwide basis?
  • Which metering technologies have various utilities selected for their deployment projects?
  • What types of smart meter-related vendors are working with specific utilities?
  • What are the vendor selection shares of these companies in North America?
  • What new project announcements have been made since the last release of this Tracker?
  • Which communications technologies are being leveraged by utilities in their deployments?
