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

The smart electric meter market is evolving across both technologies and geographies. In developed markets, new installations and second-generation upgrades continue, with a shift toward advanced capabilities and managed services models. Developing markets are advancing beyond the nascent stage, with an uptick in project announcements across Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East. The expansion of low power wide area (LPWA) networks presents even greater opportunity for market expansion and project viability.

Since the 4Q 2018 Global AMI Tracker, the North American market has seen several new project announcements from larger utilities (Ameren, We Energies) as well as some smaller utilities. Europe, Italy, France, Spain, and the UK continue to lead regional activity. There has been an uptick in Eastern European announcements, specifically in Russia and Poland. Asia Pacific is in transition as China moves to second-generation metering, Japan and Korea continue first-generation deployments, and several other markets (India, Malaysia, Taiwan) offer the promise of growth. In developing markets, pilot projects characterize the regional landscape. Progress in areas of Latin America (Mexico, Brazil) and the Middle East (Iran, Saudi Arabia) continues at a steady pace.

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 report 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.
