Global Smart Water Meter Market to Reach US$ 12.01 Billion by 2027, Bolstered by Rising Global Population

Published on Jan 31, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Smart Water Meter Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global smart water meter market size reached a value of US$ 6.31 Billion in 2021. Smart water meters are devices that measure the quantity of water used in various residential, commercial, and industrial applications. They can be integrated with wired and wireless communication technologies, such as the internet, Wi-Fi, and LAN or wide area networks, to measure consumption data, primarily for the purposes of billing. Smart water meters help to reduce non-revenue water (NRW) wastage, enhance accuracy in billing, and lower the carbon footprint of the users. Smart water meters enable the utility providers to automatically collect consumption data, improve efficiency, eliminate the need for manual meter readings, and provide a cost-effective option.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Smart Water Meter Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the increasing population and rapid urbanization across the globe. The rising need for accuracy in water billing solutions in the residential sector is also fueling the growth of the market. Smart water meters have gained prominence in recent years owing to the rising focus on optimizing water consumption. There is also a high demand for smart meters in the automobile, manufacturing, and construction industries. In addition to this, government and non-governmental organizations are implementing various initiatives and undertaking campaigns to save water. In line with this, market players are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce efficient remote sensing metering solutions. Furthermore, technological advancements have resulted in the development of metering systems designed with materials like thermoplastics, which allow enterprises to promote sustainability by recycling the devices. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at US$ 12.01 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
