With increasing adoption of internet of things (IoT) technologies by utility vertical and the advantages offered by smart water meters in water management, the smart water meters market is expected to grow at a high growth rate. Like many other verticals, utility vertical is undergoing a process of transformation through the use of IoT-enabled real-time data generation in order to increase operational efficiencies aiding in reduced expenditures and energy consumptions.
For water utility authorities, non-revenue water (NWR) i.e. water lost before reaching to customers through leakages and illegal water tapping is a major cause of concern and smart water meters can aid in detecting and preventing water leakages and water tapping.
Smart Water Meters: Drivers and Challenges
Aging water utility infrastructure in matured economies including U.S., U.K., Germany, France etc. and increasing emphasis on water and energy conservations and carbon footprint reduction are some of the factors driving the demand of smart water meters market. Besides this, increasing adoption of IoT solutions in utility vertical and increasing number of smart city projects are expected to support the increase in demand for smart water meters market.
However, high initial investment cost in terms of installation and software licensing are some of the challenges that will affect the demand of smart water meters market.
