Advanced Metering Infrastructure Market Drivers
Rise in demand for energy efficient products:
Water meter manufacturers are increasingly producing energy-efficient products to reduce carbon footprint and enable energy savings for the consumers. The rise of energy-efficient appliances can be attributed to the stringent government regulations on electric home appliances and advances in technology. The U.S. Department of energy, mandated the industry manufacturers to use new technologies for the development of energy efficient meters which were rated based on thermal efficiency and standby losses. As energy efficient appliances are designed to utilize minimum energy. More than 80 countries have set standards and labels for energy efficient appliances. For instance, in the USA, an ENERGY STAR certified water meter saves $3500 over its lifetime. With BEE’s Standards and Labelling Program having included water meters as a mandatory appliance, manufacturers produce more energy-efficient products, in turn reducing energy costs and improving demand for water meters. Hence rise in demand for energy efficient products will drive the market demand in the forecast period 2022-2027.
Favourable government subsidies encouraging the use of solar water meters:
Government initiatives in increasing the popularity of solar-powered water meters are likely to propel the water meter market. For instance, in India, the government offers various incentives for the installation of roof-top solar-powered water meters through an initiative called Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). Similarly, the government also provides an interest subsidy, besides a 5% rebate on property tax. Moreover, governments of the U.S, the U.K and so on have been providing several incentives and tax rebates for the installation of solar water meters. In addition growth in concern among consumers regarding natural resources and energy is encouraging the consumers to shift toward energy-efficient water heating systems in the forecast period 2022-2027.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure Market Challenges
High Initial Investment:
Implementation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure in factories is a part of automation process. Adoption of automation machines can be one of the most cost intensive process and requires high capital input. In addition to the initial costs, there are several unpredictable costs which may exceed the real cost saved by the accomplishing automation in the company. Some of these costs involve research and development costs of automating a process, anticipatory repairs, and maintenance costs. Additionally, there is also training cost associated with Advanced Metering Infrastructure operation that further restraints the market growth. The average cost of mechanical meters are quite low varying from €22.5 per unit up to €90. Smart meters meanwhile start at €85 and upwards. In addition to it, a mid-range water meter of considerably good quality costs €62.5 (per unit). Most of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure also occupy larger space which is a major challenge in small sized industries. The high cost of installation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure further discourage the application in residential projects and small scale commercial buildings.
