Market overview of smart water management

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global smart water management market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 19% during the forecast period. The rising operating costs for water management is the primary driver for this market’s growth. An aging water infrastructure, the need to manage capital costs, increasing energy costs, expanding regulation, and tight financing are the major concerns for the water industry. Volatile energy costs are critical concerns prompting governments worldwide to implement smart water management solutions. For instance, in Germany, water treatment facilities alone accounted for more than 20% of the energy consumption during 2014.  

The growing usage of automated meter reading technology is expected to positively impact the market growth during the forecast period. Most of the utilities work to manage their water resources for energy production by using actionable intelligence provided by automated meter reading technology. Automated meter data collection has helped companies to improve customer services be enabling them to manage high consumption periods. The use of such technologies also protects the utilities' revenues by mitigating issues such as non-usage periods.

Product segmentation of the smart water management market

  • Hardware
  • Solutions 
  • Services

The hardware segment dominated the market during 2015 with a market share of above 37%. Hardware consists of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) that helps utilities streamline the billing process. The data gathered through AMI can be used to identify problematic areas within the system. Such early detections help in better managing production, distribution, and storage of water. Utilities can substantially decrease their non-revenue water by detecting water loss in the distribution network or at customer end-points.
