Prepaid and Electronic Meters to Sweep the Market Over the Next Five Years
The Southeast Asian electricity meters market is in the growth stage of the market cycle. There is a drastic technology shift in the region, with electromechanical meters being replaced by electronic and prepaid meters. Key challenges faced are resistance to technology change by customers, financial instability, and a lack of skilled labour. Market trends are analysed from 2011 to 2018; the base year of the study is 2013. The study covers market revenue, segmentation by country and technology, end-user analysis, pricing trends, value chain and competitive analyses, and company profiling.
Executive Summary—Key Findings
-The electricity meters market revenue in Southeast Asia (SE Asia) was $ million in 2013.
-Backed by the utilities’ initiatives to wipe out the usage of electromechanical meters with electronic and prepaid meters, the market revenue is expected to surge to $million by 2018.
-Smart-meter pilots have been initiated. Trial runs are expected during the next five years, lifting the advanced metering infrastructure and automatic meter reading (AMI/AMR) revenue to $ million in 2018.
-The period 2013–2018 will be a hotbed for prepaid meters with major investments focused in Indonesia and The Philippines.
-The residential segment will continue to be the major revenue contributor throughout the study period; however, the industrial segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate.
-Itron and Actaris Metering Systems (Itron+Actaris), EDMI Ltd (EDMI), and PT. Global Meter Industry (Glomet or Global Meter) are the top three competitors in the market.
-The strong liaison between global manufacturers and local companies is expected to grow further to tap into the market potential and to gain competitive edge with the local utilities.
An electricity meter (also known as energy meter) is a device that can measure the amount of electrical energy supplied to a typical commercial, industrial, and residential customer by the electricity utility. These meters are more commonly known as kilowatt-hour (kWh*) meter. They record energy consumption, which can be generated into an appropriate invoice by utilities for their customers. They also have options to read and record other variables, such as the time and power usage. Electricity meters fall into four basic categories, namely:
-Advanced metering infrastructure and automatic meter reading (AMI/AMR)
