With utilities set to introduce new prepaid programs and expand their current range of prepaid services, software, hardware and service vendors are reacting quickly to snap up market share. Customer and utility benefits of cost savings and energy efficiency are fuelling the prepaid electric metering market, reports Pike Research. The increasing adoption of smart grid technology to support prepaid systems with smart prepaid meters deployment is also helping drive industry growth. The worldwide installed base of prepaid electric meters was estimated at more than 20 million in 2011, and is predicted to exceed 23 million in 2012. Yearly growth in excess of 9% for the seven-year period ending 2017 is expected to see the installed base climb to almost 34 million meters worldwide in 2017. Demand for software and services to support prepaid systems is expected to see the prepaid software market account for $210 million of the $263 million prepaid services market before the end of 2012.

The global flexible alternating current transmission sector is forecast to reach $1.7 billion by 2015, according to research from Global Industry Analysts.
