A new report from Navigant Research provides an analysis of global utility smart meter projects, tracking data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) vendors.

The global smart meter market is evolving rapidly. In more mature markets, utilities are considering their options for second-generation AMI deployments that use new and advanced capabilities. For utilities just launching their AMI efforts, newer technologies and purchasing models are of growing interest. Click to tweet: Navigant Research’s Global AMI Tracker 2Q19 has identified 24 new projects globally since its last update in 4Q 2018.

“In developed markets, new installations and second-generation upgrades continue, with a shift toward advanced capabilities and managed services models,” says Michael Kelly, research analyst with Navigant Research. “Meanwhile, developing markets are advancing beyond the nascent stage, with an uptick in project announcements across Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.”

According to the report, the North American market has seen several new project announcements from larger utilities (Ameren, We Energies) as well as some smaller utilities in the last several months. Europe, Italy, France, Spain, and the UK continue to lead regional activity, and there has been an uptick in Eastern European announcements, specifically in Russia and Poland. Asia Pacific is in transition as China moves to second-generation metering, Japan and Korea continue first-generation deployments, and several other markets (India, Malaysia, Taiwan) offer the promise of growth.

The report, Global AMI Tracker 2Q19, report provides an analysis of global utility smart meter projects. It tracks data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, AMI communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) vendors. The report also includes an examination of the technologies, timeframes, and vendor selections for AMI deployments around the world, along with vendor selection share analysis for North America.
