The global water metering market (ex. China) represented $4.2 billion in annual investment at the end of
2019. The Covid-19 pandemic will hit shipments by an estimated 20% in 2020. The water metering market
includes legacy residential metering, smart residential metering (including both one-way communicating
AMR meters and two-way communicating AMI meters), sub-meters, commercial meters and industrial
meters. Annual investment in water metering will grow to $6.4 billion by 2029, driven primarily by growth in
the higher value AMI segment. This dataset of over 30,000 data points draws on primary research and a
bottom-up analysis, covering 125 individual countries that comprise more than 98% of the global market.
This dataset was compiled from primary sources. Northeast Group compiled primary sources from each of
the 125 countries in order to build a bottom-up analysis of the global market. This ensures that the data is
not a top-down estimate, compiled on a regional or global basis, but rather a country-by-country and
segment-by-segment analysis that provides a detailed and exhaustive picture of the global market.
Data Split by Segment
The data is broken down into three primary segments,
including 16 total lines of data for each country:
- Residential communicating meters;
- Residential legacy meters; and
- Commercial and industrial meters.
Forecasts to 2029
Northeast Group has projected the water metering market
out to 2029 for each of the 125 countries and for each
segment of the market. These forecasts are compiled from primary source data run through Northeast
Group's proprietary forecasting models.
Excel Format Allowing for Customization
The dataset is compiled in Excel, allowing for easy data manipulation and customization by clients. An
executive summary presentation-including vendor market share data for communicating water meters by
region-is also included as part of the research package.
