The solution segment to record a larger market share during the forecast period
In Smart Water Management Market by offering the solutions segment is expected to record a larger market share during the forecast period with technology becoming more advanced with time, water utilities are adopting smart solutions to integrate various business processes, accelerating them toward growth. Integrating various advanced technologies with the existing operations helps them increase the operational efficiency of the entire water network even with low infrastructure investment. These technologies and smart infrastructure are used to develop innovative solutions for customers in the smart water industry. During the forecast period, the adoption of smart solutions fare is expected to surge due to the rising awareness about the quality of water, scarcity of natural freshwater resources, rising consumer demands, and technological advancements.
Residential segment is expected to have higher growth rate during the forecast period
By end user the residential segment is expected to have the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The demand for freshwater in residential areas has shown unprecedented growth due to the world's growing urban population, changing lifestyles, and eating habits leading to higher water consumption. The increase in water consumption is more pronounced in urban settings with high population density with the presence of production industries that contribute toward major water consumption. The rising demand for quality water services is expected to propel the demand for SWM solutions in residential areas. The solutions for SWM in residential areas are more focused on supplying quality water to the consumers, as water and sanitation access rates are higher in residential areas, leading to the rising demand for improved city planning and infrastructure with an efficient water supply and drainage system. In residential areas, the demand for quality water and improved sanitation services is rising due to concerns, such as poor health conditions resulting from contaminated water consumption.
AMI Meters segment is expected to have a higher growth rate during the forecast period
By Watermeter Type, AMI meters is expected to have a higher growth rate. AMI is a network-based technology that uses two-way communication to communicate data from water meters to a remote metering master office, providing similar benefits to AMR systems. The AMI system comprises a head-end system that combines hardware and software to bring water utility data up to date. It also includes digital smart water meters. However, the fundamental communications network in AMI is bidirectional. AMI supports the collection of meter data more frequently than AMRs, where the data is utilized by the utility for billing, consumption, and usage analysis, and meter control, such as Meter Data Management MDM) and Master Client Index (MCI). In addition to these, AMI also offers water utilities the ability to turn on and off the services from one central location. AMI systems can tie together more utility departments, from engineering and operations departments to asset management and planning departments. AMI is an advanced and smarter system that has built-in tools for the enhancement of customer service and satisfaction. In the coming five years, AMI is set to replace legacy systems in residential, commercial, and industrial setups due to the increasing demand for advanced functionalities and technologies to analyze, store, and utilize a large amount of data.
North America to hold the largest market size duringthe forecast period
North America is expected to hold the largest market size in the global Smart Water Management Market during the forecast period. Factors responsible for the growth of the North American market are fast technology adoption, a large urban population with rising demands for quality services, and aging infrastructure, which is in serious need of replacement or upgrades. In North America, SWM solutions are being deployed at a rapid pace to address the effects of climate change, water usage patterns, and the management of new man-made contaminants. According to findings by the US Water Alliance, more than 1.6 million Americans face a shortage of running water, indoor plumbing, and wastewater treatment. Along with this, the most pressing issue in the region is the aging infrastructure, which has led cash-strapped water utilities to deploy smart water solutions due to acute water losses from a large number of pipeline leakages, bursts, and outage incidents.
