Smart electricity meters are electronic devices that show accurate readings for electricity usage. They help minimize the peak electricity requirements and enable consumers to monitor & reduce power consumption. Besides, they also help prevent disconnection, removes billing errors, etc.
Many utility companies worldwide are increasingly adopting smart meters as an efficient way to monitor the electricity usage of their customers in order to better determine infrastructure requirements & costs. Moreover, smart electricity meters can provide both utilities & their customers with better means of how usage is affecting their costs and, in turn, help them devise new money-saving strategies.
The Global Smart Electricity Meter Market is projected to register a CAGR of around 9% during the forecast period, 2022-27. The growth of the market is driven primarily by the growing consumer need for accurate billing, massive investments by both private & public players in deploying smart grids, and various energy conservation initiatives worldwide.
