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

The smart electric meter continues to evolve across both technologies and geographies. In developed markets, penetration rates continue to climb while a burgeoning market for second-generation deployments begins to emerge. Meanwhile, developing markets are finally advancing beyond the nascent stage, with an uptick in project announcements across Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Since the 2Q 2019 Global AMI Tracker, the North American market has seen the greatest number of new project announcements, with a notable uptick in public utility deployments. Western Europe remains a hotbed of activity as new players emerge, multiple nationwide rollouts continue, and second-generation upgrades are realized. In Eastern Europe, new markets are emerging including Russia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The Asia Pacific market remains highly fragmented, though high volume activity and aggressive targets across several markets have galvanized the region. In the Latin America and Middle East regions, which have been underdeveloped markets slow to adopt advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), many countries are exploring advanced metering at a national scale. Africa is still inhibited by financial constraints, though small- to mid-scale projects continue to propagate, along with a handful of more meaningful deployments.  

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 system (MDMS) 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.
