Market Drivers and Restraints
An increasing number of energy efficiency regulations drive the global smart meter demand. Roll-outs of smart electricity meters lead to simultaneous smart gas meter roll-outs. However, the total costs of ownership for smart gas metering in many cases are higher than the associated energy cost savings and the lack of common protocols and interface standards slows the pace of market development.
Forecasts and Trends
Global shipments growth during the forecast period can mainly be attributed to the smart gas meter roll-outs in Japan and European Union (EU) countries. While the Japanese roll-out can be expected to be partly completed by 2020, EU is projected to clearly miss its target of % smart gas meter deployment by 2020
Market Share and Competitive Analysis
Landis+Gyr was able to position itself as the number three global supplier behind Itron and Elster in the market for automated meter reading (AMR) and advanced meter infrastructure (AMI).
