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

The smart electric meter continues to evolve across technologies and geographies. In developed markets, penetration rates continue to climb while a burgeoning market for second-generation deployments begins to emerge. There has been an evolution in deployment drivers, moving from traditional billing and workforce considerations to innovative use cases around edge computing, grid optimization, and customer experience.

Meanwhile, developing markets are advancing beyond the nascent stage with an uptick in project announcements across Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East. In these markets, motivations still largely lie in operational savings and theft detection. The adoption of electric smart meters by utilities is part of a long-term technology transformation to create a more intelligent grid. The rate of adoption will continue to vary by region, state, and utility, but smart meters are well on their way to becoming the norm. 

This Guidehouse Insights report provides an analysis of global utility smart meter projects. It tracks data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) 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.
