Analyst Insight: Leading Smart Meter Vendor Selection Shares

The smart meter market consists of a mix of established global conglomerates and more nimble focused solutions providers. Smart meter manufacturers, although often the most visible, represent only a piece of the smart meter value chain. The landscape of smart meter manufacturers tends to be regional in nature, with only a handful of vendors achieving global footprints. Communications mirrors the market for smart meters in many ways, with most major providers also offering embedded communications.

The increasing volume of meter data and new applications that rely on this data, such as demand side management and grid optimization, have driven the need for enhanced meter data management systems (MDMSs) and broader applications for smart meter analytics. Analysis in this Guidehouse Insights report identifies key technology trends that help to shape this evolving and complex market.

This Guidehouse Insights report provides a comprehensive resource for announced advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) projects and associated vendors. This report offers information regarding smart electric meter deployments announced through 1Q 2021, including estimates for installed smart meters. Information is based on published announcements from vendors, utilities, news agencies, and public filings, among other sources.
