Download Free Sample Report!

A smart meter is a normal water meter connected to a data logger that allows for the continuous monitoring of water consumption. The conventional systems in which users get the information on water usage months after the events occurred, a smart metering system can provide real-time water consumption or sufficient data points to determine usage patterns. Smart metering is, therefore, the provision of near real-time information enabling customers to understand and monitor their water use and assisting the water utility to manage its network and provide better customer service.

Europe Smart Water Meters Market Segments Size & Growth:

Europe Smart Water Meters Market size is projected to reach approximately $XX billion by the end of 2024 with a CAGR of close to XX% from $XX billion in 2017 during the forecast timeline 2018-2024. Key parameters promoting the market growth include investments inefficient distribution networks, adequate monitoring of consumption patterns, accuracy & savings in Billings, favourable government regulations, developing intelligent, sustainable water management solutions, and non-revenue water (NRW) monitoring and control. However, high initial costs and fragmented nature of the industry, lack of awareness among consumers, and privacy concerns are thereby hindering the market growth. Various opportunities for smart water meter market include incorporation of distributed generation and the possibility for water conservation of smart irrigation systems.

Europe Smart Water Meters Market Segments Share:

Europe Smart Water Meters Market is categorised into a type which comprises of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), and automatic meter reader (AMR). Among them, advanced meter reader segment is expected to hold the largest share in the market. Reduced meter-reading cost, elimination of billing errors and disputes, and the availability of real-time billing information will fuel the growth of AMR meters in Europe smart water meter market. The advanced meter infrastructure smart water metering market is anticipated to witness growth by 2024.

By product, the market is segmented into the smart hot-water meter and smart cold-water meter. Among them, Cold, smart water meter segment is projected to witness a growth of over XX% by 2024. These meters can be used up to temperature ranges of 300 C and find application across residential and commercial establishments. The ongoing increase in consumption coupled with the rapid expansion of cooling pipelines will further drive the product outlook. By the component, the market is segmented into communication devices, meter & accessories, software & solutions, and others. By end-users, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, and utility. Among them, the Residential segment is projected to hold the largest share in the market because of rising demand for accurate billing coupled with effective mapping of unregulated spending on water resources, the ability of intelligent metering systems to reduce non-revenue water and secure remote monitoring.

By Geography, UK is projected to hold for the largest share in the market and France is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period. In Europe, the growth of the smart water metering market can be attributed to focus on water monitoring & prevention of water leakage and the repair & upgrade of ageing water infrastructure.
