A smart meter refers to a digital meter that monitors utility usage and shares the relevant data with the utility suppliers. The smart meter uses two-way communication, firstly it records the data at the point of usage and then sends back the information to the utility companies. This type of meter is used to extract information about the energy consumed by the end-users.

The significant factors contributing to the growth of the smart meter market size include the increasing energy consumption to enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system used by the utilities. Additionally, several government initiatives are supporting the adoption of the smart meter across the globe. The rising technological advancements, including the smart grid development and infrastructure development, are further boosting the smart meter market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the rapid increase in economic development among the developing countries will bring numerous growth opportunities in the market. On the other hand, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic will have a negative impact on the strong demand of the market. The strict lockdown around the world has brought disruption in the supply chain and difficulties in the export and import of raw materials used in the manufacturing of smart meters. However, the global smart meter market is projected to bounce back in 2021 while growing at a significant rate from 2022 onwards.
