The global market for Demand Response Management Systems (DRMS) is projected to exceed US$9.5 billion by 2024, driven by technology disruptions in the electric power industry, the primary among them being smart grid software aimed at providing utilities a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and efficient energy management solution for tackling demand disruptions. The inefficiency of legacy load management systems is throwing the spotlight on DRMS as an effective alternative. Benefits of demand response driving its importance as an indispensable strategy in meeting clean energy and climate goals include financial benefits for energy consumers in terms of reduced bills and incentive payments earned; enables effective load management by utilities; reduces the risk of power outages and financial losses accruing from the same; encourages fair market practices by preventing utilities from raising prices; helps businesses and consumers hedge the rising prices of electricity; higher willingness to shift to backup power and co-generation strategies to reduce exposure to fluctuations in wholesale and peak load price spikes; reduced stress on the grid and greater grid reliability; increased use of renewable energy and better ability for integrated resource planning, among others. Future growth in the market will be driven by robust demand for Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) technologies; ongoing evolution and adoption of smart grids in energy distribution networks; growing prominence of smart electricity meters as an integral part of smart homes; government policy led provision of incentives for voluntary demand response programs for residential homes; and growing value of demand response for utilities with renewables integration given their ability to optimally allocate installed capacity and eliminate fluctuations in load balancing. The United States represents the largest market worldwide, supported by stimulus funding and federal governmental policy guidance and regulations and the ensuing successful implementation of price-based demand response and Incentive-based demand response programs. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 33% over the analysis period led by growing regional economies and population, a parallel increase in energy demand and resulting need for sustainable consumption habits; growing investments in smart cities and the resulting expanding base of smart grid community of residential households.
