Global AMI Tracker 4Q18

Smart Meter Projects: Project Tracking, Regional Analysis, and Market Shares

The smart electric meter market remains strong as developed markets continue to mature through a mix of new deployments and second-generation upgrades. Meanwhile, developing markets are finally advancing beyond the nascent stage, with an uptick in notable project announcements across areas of Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Since the release of Navigant Research’s previous Global AMI Tracker in 2Q 2018, the North American market has seen several new project announcements from larger utilities (e.g., Dominion Virginia, Duke Energy Florida, and Tampa Electric) and smaller public utilities. In Europe, a flurry of smart meter activity continues, with several ongoing and planned deployments. The Asia Pacific market remains fragmented, with some countries engaging in large-scale projects while many others show limited to no activity. Latin America has traditionally been an underdeveloped market, but countries like Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Peru are exploring advanced metering infrastructure (AMI). In the Middle East & Africa, which has also been slow to adopt AMI, a few countries such as Kuwait, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have announced large-scale projects. Africa is still significantly inhibited by financial constraints, though small- to mid-scale projects continue to propagate across the continent.

This Navigant Research 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 system (MDMS) vendors. The Tracker also includes an examination of the technologies, timeframes, and vendor selections for AMI deployments around the world, as well as vendor selection share analysis for North America.
