Smart Metering in North America and Asia-Pacific market report analyes the latest smart metering developments in two dynamic regions. This strategic research report provides you with over 225 pages of unique business intelligence, including 5-year industry forecasts, expert commentary and real-life case studies on which to base your business decisions.
According to this report, the penetration of smart electricity meters in North America reached 68 percent in 2020. Overall, the installed base of smart electricity meters will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.7 percent during 2019-2025 to reach a total of 153.8 million units at the end of the forecast period. Over the next five years, the penetration of smart meters in the US will grow to reach a level of 84 percent while the respective figure for the more advanced Canadian market will reach 92 percent.
According to the study, yearly shipments of smart electricity meters in North America will grow from 9.8 million units in 2019 to 17.4 million units in 2025. The Covid-19 pandemic had a notable impact on deployments during 2020 with a year-over-year decrease of around 13 percent in annual shipment volumes.
The market is however expected to recover in 2021 with forecasted shipment volumes of 10.7 million units. Along with the increase in smart meter refreshment projects, the development of smart metering technology in the North American market has in the last couple of years shifted focus to serving the demand of utilities which are to begin second-wave smart meter rollouts.
These utilities are now looking to leverage their existing network canopies for a wider array of smart city applications beyond metering while also trying to figure out how to cope with the integration of the rapidly increasing number of electric vehicles and distributed energy resources into the grid infrastructure.
