has announced the addition of the "Growth
Opportunities in Global Smart Meters Market 2012-2017: Trends, Forecast
and Market Share Analysis" report to their offering.
With increased deployment by the electric utilities, smart meters are
rapidly being adopted around the world as part of larger smart grid
initiatives. The global smart meter market, which experienced
double-digit growth during 2006-2011, is projected to grow further in
2012 with a CAGR of 12% through 2017 and US $8.2 billion.
This research indicates that real time information sharing regarding
usage and tariff rates is one of the major drivers of this market. In
addition, the increased costs n manual reading of meter data, as in
case of analog and digital meters, have led to the growth of AMR and
AMI. Yet the lack of a compatible, reliable, and flexible protocol
development for interaction among different components across this
system and lack of customer knowledge regarding use of smart meters
remain challenges in this market.
This report gives useful technical details and market information for
both smart meter manufacturers and electrical utilities. The report,
which provides trend scenarios and forecast statistics for 2012-2017,
details drivers and challenges, industry background and characteristics,
and makes an elaborate analysis of the global smart meters market, while
also describing growth opportunities, emerging trends, and leading
manufacturers' profiles in the global smart meters market.
This research study is designed and intended for use by manufacturers,
material suppliers, parts fabricators, OEMs, investors, executives, and
consultants focused on the utility industry.
