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 in 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.

Factors affecting the market include technological advances, development of smart meters, and increasing prices of electricity generation along with increases in demand conditions, government incentives to promote green energy, and development of transmission facilities to provide energy to remote areas. The North America, APAC, and ROW markets are expected to show double digit growth in the forecast period.
