As the internet of things (IoT) penetrates into the public utility sectors, charging by meters helps smart meter industry grow at a solid pace. China's shipments of smart meters ranged at 200 million units in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2013-2018, a rate which is expected to stay at 6.5% between 2019 and 2025.
In terms of market segments, smart electric meter boasts the highest penetration in China, sweeping around 70.0% of the market, but its slower growth, a result that the upgrading and replacement draw to a close, will lead to a declining market share; smart water and gas meters which are being deployed on large scale, however, will be the main growth drivers in the near future.
Smart Electric Meter: In the market, bids are invited by State Grid Corporation of China (seizing at least 80% market shares) and China Southern Power Grid. State Grid saw electric meter procurement slump in 2017 versus previous years for it has finished deployment of smart meters in recent two years, which means future demand will be from new users and those who need replacement. It is predicted that China's installations of smart electric meters will grow at an average rate of virtually 3.5% each year from 2019 to 2025.
Smart Gas Meter: In 2018, smart gas meter shipments in China surged by 13.7% to roughly 54.1 million units on the previous year, with a penetration of as high as 60.1%; as the "coal to gas" campaign is under way, the increasing consumption of natural gas conduces to the rising demand for smart gas meters whose shipments will expectedly outstrip 70 million units in 2025.
Smart Water Meter: In China, penetration of smart water meters remains low, no more than 30%, leaving huge space to grow. That's because the dispersed distribution of water companies makes it hard to manage meters in a centralized way. In 2018, more than 24 million smart water meters were shipped in China, 13% more than in the previous year. It is predicted that driven by the release of new houses and buildings and the replacement in the established real estate market, smart water meter market will enjoy a growth rate of 10%-15% between 2019 and 2025.
Heat Meter: The market size of heat meter which is mostly used in northern China, remains small. Before reaching estimated 3.65 million units in 2019, China's sales of heat meters stood at around 3.51 million units in 2018, a figure projected to outnumber 4.5 million in 2025. Heating by renewable energy will be a trend in China in the upcoming years due in part to the implementation of environment protection policies.
In China, smart meter manufacturers are led by Ningbo Sanxing Medical Electric, Jiangsu Linyang Energy, Shaanxi Aerospace Power Hi-Tech, Goldcard Smart Group, Suntront Technology and Huizhong Instrumentation. The CR10 of smart meter industry hovered at 40% in 2018. By market segment, the numerous manufacturers of smart electric and water meters produced a low market concentration, with CR5 below 20% in the year.
