The market for smart, connected water and gas solutions is at an inflection point, driven by three significant trends. Many of the traditional drivers for smart connected systems are becoming more urgent in both the water and gas segments. Water scarcity associated with climate change is rising, exacerbated by ongoing urbanization. Meanwhile, the growing reliance on natural gas as a fuel source worldwide means that more communities are exposed to distribution systems where a leak can result in dozens of deaths or an explosion. These dynamics will make conservation and safety even more critical.
The emergence of a multitude of more affordable low power wide area (LPWA) networking technologies, with longer battery life and the ability to penetrate in buildings and basements, means utilities have more options for complex water and gas metering situations than just a few years ago. The Internet of Things (IoT) and associated trends such as smart cities mean that both the standardization and availability of IoT networks and the ability for those networks to be leveraged for water and gas utility purposes will increase dramatically.
This Navigant Research report explains the use of AMR and AMI networks by water and gas utilities. The study covers the key trends in networking deployment, non-metering applications enabled by the networks, and communications technology options. Global market forecasts extend through 2028. The report also profiles key vendors of smart water and gas networking solutions, describes global trends, and includes projected communications node shipments and infrastructure revenue by segment, global region, and networking technology.
