Demand for Power Meters Increases

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, “Electricity Meters Market in Southeast Asia,” (Date Published: May 3rd, 2007) reveals that the market earned revenues of $191.4 million in 2006 and estimates this to reach $309.3 million in 2013. “The rate of growth in the different regional markets for electricity meters depends on the rate of construction of new residential and commercial buildings, as well as on the stage of privatization and deregulation in the national electricity supply industry," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Bharath Srinivasan.

Countries experiencing the fastest growth in their electricity meters markets are Indonesia and Vietnam, where basic power infrastructure is lacking and the growth in population and electricity demand warrants proportional investments in power distribution systems. Indonesia generated maximum revenues for electromechanical meters in 2006. Vietnam is likely to catch up with its demand for electronic meters during the end of the forecast period.

"The combined effect of replacing electromechanical meters with electronic ones and multifold growth in the power distribution sector is expected to fuel the electricity meters market in the long term," notes Srinivasan.
