A digital smart meter refers to an advanced electronic device used for measuring and monitoring energy consumption in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Digital smart meters provide real-time data on energy usage, enabling both consumers and utility companies to better manage and optimize energy resources. These meters are equipped with digital displays that provide detailed information, such as current energy consumption, voltage levels, and even historical usage patterns. The growing need for energy measurements and increasing consumption of electricity in residential, commercial, and industrial settings is driving the market demand for digital smart meters thereby boosting their market growth.

The rise in energy consumption in residential and commercial settings is boosting the market growth.

Residential consumers are seeking ways to reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint due to rising electricity costs and a growing focus on sustainability. Digital smart meters provide homeowners with real-time data on their energy consumption, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding their usage patterns and identify areas where energy efficiency can be improved. In commercial settings, businesses are actively seeking ways to optimize their energy usage and reduce operational costs. Digital smart meters provide accurate and granular energy data, enabling businesses to identify energy-intensive processes, equipment, or areas where energy efficiency measures can be implemented. Commercial establishments can make informed decisions to increase efficiency and achieve cost savings by monitoring and managing energy consumption in real time. The increase in the consumption of electricity by residential and commercial areas is propelling the market demand for digital smart meters. According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) in 2022, electricity sales to the US residential sector increased by about 3.5% from 2021, while sales to the US commercial sector increased by about 3.4%. According to the National Institute of Health in 2020, electricity consumption by residential buildings in Canada increased by 12% from 2019 to 2020.

The surge in the adoption of technology for energy measurement in industrial sectors propels the growth of the digital meter market.

Industrial establishments are increasingly recognizing the importance of monitoring and managing their energy consumption to optimize operational efficiency and reduce costs. Digital smart meters have emerged as powerful tools for capturing and analyzing energy data in real-time as these meters enable industries to monitor their energy consumption patterns, identify energy wastage, and implement targeted energy-saving measures. Digital smart meters can now be interconnected within a network, enabling seamless data transmission and centralized monitoring. Additionally, cloud-based platforms enable industries to store, analyze, and visualize energy data, facilitating real-time decision-making and enabling proactive energy management strategies. The rising adoption of technology for energy measurement in industrial sectors boosts the digital meter market growth. In 2020, Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute developed a system for generating real-time electricity bills using IoT technology which allows customers to constantly review and administrate their energy consumption.

During the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to hold a sizable market share due to the rising electricity consumption coupled with efforts to develop clean energy for domestic usage, which is driving the demand for energy management solutions in the region. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) in 2022, National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM) by the Indian government has deployed 51.62 lakh smart meters till November 2022, with 61.13 lakh yet to come. In December 2021, a US$ 135 million loan was approved by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (also called the World Bank) to improve the reliability and efficiency of electricity supply in selected areas of West Bengal. In 2022, the Chinese government invested $546 Billion in the generation of clean energy to bolster domestic clean energy manufacturing. Such beneficial developments will accelerate the demand for digital smart meters, thereby accelerating regional market growth.

Key Developments
