DUBLIN, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7gkhrv/electricity_meter) has announced the addition of the "Electricity Meter Report 2015 2nd Edition" report to their offering.
This comprehensive report analyzes the global electricity meter market and the key topics all market participants should be aware of. It considers current and future drivers, challenges and opportunties, resulting in an unrivalled understand of this sector.
The United States market has slowed down following the end of the fiscal stimulus. The long awaited smart meter expansion is beginning in Europe and the Middle East. South America will follow with smart meters and prepayment meters. In 2015 smart meters amounted for 35.4% of low voltage (LV) meter sales, and this will rise to 45.7% in 2020. The market for smart meters is taking off but some planned schedules may be overly ambitious , while other deployments will be completed before 2020.
A new and escalating trend is prepayment metering (PPM), an old technology with a new twist. In 2015 PPM sales were 11.2% of LV meter sales outside China. This will rise to 14.9% in 2020, an increase of one third in five years.
PPM provides an intermediate solution to the chronic problem of energy theft in Asia, especially the Indian sub-content, sub-Saharan Africa and South America. In some African countries only 50% of electricity generated is paid for; half is not even billed to the distribution companies and another half is stolen by the consumers; PPMs are the preferred solution. Indonesia, the fourth largest population in the world is well into the largest pan-national deployment of PPMs, as is Mexico. Egypt announced in August 2015 the cancellation of a smart meter tender and substituted a RFT for 3 million PPMs.
