Key Growth Drivers of the Smart Grid Data Analytics Market

  • Advancements in Smart Meter and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is an integrated system which includes smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems that provide a two-way digital link between the customer and utilities. AMI provides various operational benefits to minimize the utility cost and offers convenience to the customer. AMI significantly reduces operating costs by remotely reading meters, connecting/disconnecting the service, identifying outages by generating more accurate bills faster, and enables utilities to provide customers digital access to their usage information. Thus, the increasing installation of smart meters and adoption of advanced metering infrastructure is expected to boost the smart grid data analytics market during the forecast period globally.
  • Technological Advancements in Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analytics – The smart grid system is based on the concept of Internet of Things (IoT), which connects all of the components of the grid, establishing two-way communication between consumers and utilities. The smart grid system is expected to emerge as a more reliable and efficient electricity distribution network in the coming years with the growing advancements and betterment of IoT infrastructure.
