KEY FACTORS SHAPING ELECTRIC SUB-METER MARKET
Increasing Demand for Smart Electric Sub-meters over Conventional Ones
Rising smart grid installation projects in countries such as India, China, Indonesia, Brazil, and Argentina are driving investments in smart electric sub-meters. Furthermore, government initiatives have led to the deployment of smart electric sub-meters over conventional electric sub-meters.
For instance, in India, the Smart Meter National Programme is being implemented by the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture (JV) of public sector undertakings under the Ministry of Power, to deploy smart electric sub-meters across the country. The installation of smart electric sub-meters can help in efficiently managing electricity, checking data-entry errors, billing efficiencies, and cost cutting of manual meter readings through a web-based monitoring system. EESL’s Smart Meter National Programme (SMNP) is working to replace nearly 250 million conventional electric sub-meters with smart meters by 2020.
Joint Ventures & Partnerships with Energy Suppliers to Drive Growth
Growing demand for energy efficiency, monitoring energy leakages, and energy outages are important for electricity suppliers and consumers. This has led government agencies, electricity suppliers, and manufacturers to partner or jointly venture to overcome energy efficiency-related issues. This has resulted in more investments in research & development to produce highly efficient and low-cost electricity sub-meters, which are expected to further drive the growth of the electric sub-meter market.
Electrical utility companies are entering into partnerships with energy and data management and data solution providers to reduce the cost of conserve resources, improve efficiency, and increase the demand for electric sub-meters.
- For example, governments in developing economies are reducing the price of smart electric sub-meters to enhance the adoption rate for residential applications.
Companies such as Jay Auto and Hexing tied up with Pal Mohan Group for making a bid with an Indian company through a joint venture. The benchmark smart electric sub-meter price per meter is INR 1,400 (US$ 20), whereas, the lowest bidding completed was INR 2,200 per meter for the supply of 5 million smart electric sub-meters.
In October 2018, Hexing Electrical signed a joint venture with West Zone Power Distribution Company Limited to develop a new company named Bangladesh Smart Electrical Company Limited, to produce smart prepaid meters.
Strengthening Customer and Vendor Relationships
Growing competition and increasing number of players in regional as well as global markets have made project acquisition more difficult. Market players are now focusing on increasing customer retention and strengthening their relationship with existing customers. Long-term relationships with customers, distributors, and vendors enable companies to acquire long-term contracts for product requirements, and this is expected to be the key strategy for growth in the global electric sub-meter market.
Furthermore, concentration on acquiring new electric sub-meter installation orders related to smart electric sub-meters in solar energy farms is anticipated to drive the global electric sub-meter market in South East Asian countries.
Impact of COVID 19 Pandemic
The global economy has taken a massive hit due to the spread of novel coronavirus across the globe. According to recent findings, even in the best possible scenario, the global economy is anticipated to witness a fallout of US$ 2.3 trillion. As per the International Monetary Fund (IMF), around 170 countries are expected to witness negative per capita income growth. All this economic downfall is anticipated to curb the manufacturing and sales of electric sub-meters. The current deployment of smart electric sub-meter projects are on hold, and this delay will affect demand and supply in the current year, and have a moderate impact in the first quarter of 2021. The downfall is anticipated for a limited period, after which, the market is expected to recover from its losses.
Regional Outlook of Electric Sub-meter Market
