Impact of COVID-19 on North America Smart Meter Intelligence Market

Last year, the Covid-19 pandemic negatively impacted the North America Smart Meter Intelligence Market, primarily due to the decline in the meter deployments in residential & commercial areas. Shipments & installations of Smart meters got adversely affected due to the imposition of lockdown.The smart meter rollout witnessed some extent of delays amidst the pandemic.

However, a proper resumption of shipments & installations of smart meters was observed from Q4 2020 onwards, mainly after the upliftment of lockdown & trade restrictions. It owes to various advantages of smart meters to both utilities & customers that their demand is propelling significantly. Hence, the market is expected to gain a rapid pace and generate a steady demand, especially from the industrial sector.

Market Segmentation

By Component:

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Dominated the North America Smart Meter Intelligence Market with the Largest Share

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is an integrated system of communication networks, smart meters, and data management systems that allows two-way communication between customers & utilities. AMI systems assist in providing timely & accurate meter data & other data management activities that have been the key reasons for their rapid adoption in North America.

According to the Institute for Electric Innovation (IEI) report, U.S. electric companies installed 98 million smart meters in 2019, accounting for more than 70% of all U.S. households. With the rising demand to reduce transmission & distribution losses and modernize the electricity grid, the need for AMI is significantly increasing, which shall boost the AMI market in the years to come.

By End-User:

Residential Sector Attained the Largest Share in the North America Smart Meter Intelligence Market

The Residential sector has been the majority contributor to the market growth during 2016-2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance in the forecast period. This is due to the higher number of smart meter installations in the residential buildings than the industry & commercial sectors.

In 2017, 2 Canadian cities combined invested about USD 16 million to shift from analog to smart water meters. First of all, Chatham-Kent in Ontario spent about USD 10 million to replace 36,000 water meters with the help of Neptune Technology.

Secondly, St. Albert in Alberta spent around USD 6.4 million toward installing nearly 22,000 water meters, primarily to reduce the average daily water consumption per person to 200 liters from 247 liters. This awareness is necessary for the residents to acknowledge that smart meters have been of great assistance. Hence, based on these aspects, the booming residential sector in the region is projected to dominate the market in the coming years.

Country Landscape:

The US Dominates the North America Smart Meter Intelligence Market

The US Smart Meter Intelligence Market has observed a significant growth during 2016-20, principally due to the increasing adoption of Smart meter services in buildings. The key benefit of installing smart meters is the operational cost savings of the utility companies as they do not have to employ anyone, especially for taking meter readings of every building in the area.

Recently, in 2021, the state of New Jersey approved the rollout of PSE&G’s smart meters worth approximately USD 778 million. Besides, the state would deploy AMI Smart meters to collect & analyze the demand & supply data and monitor the consumption pattern of the residents. Their installation is likely to be completed by 2024.

Additionally, the states, such as California and Texas, have already been ahead and have adopted the AMI technology, indicating substantial market growth in the US.

Market Dynamics:

Key Driver

Pressing Need for Transparency in Bill Generation

Smart meters help measure the real-time consumption of electricity, water, gas, etc. The deployment of smart meters across residential & commercial sectors is increasing astronomically due to their numerous benefits, including transparency in bill generation that reduces the risk of power outages & other issues.

The adoption of Smart meters facilitates billing accuracy across various sectors, including data centers, government buildings, and private offices. Besides enhancing billing accuracy, these meters help reduce utility thefts and alleviate line losses. Hence, all these factors are anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.

Other Market drivers include:

  • Introduction of features like Smart Pay for consumer convenience
  • Burgeoning residential constructions

Market Challenges

Data Privacy Concerns and Surging Cyberattacks

Smart meter data collection & communication abilities are the potential targets of malicious attackers who might get huge benefits from manipulating & stealing the smart meter data as it has high commercial value. Hence, communications between utilities & smart meters should be highly secured to protect that crucial data from such attackers. Several government agencies are well aware of these risks and have formulated new regulations to protect such information. Hence, these privacy-related concerns might act as the prime growth restraints for the market in the forecast years.
