Global Smart Water Management Market – Insights
Smart water management systems are undergoing a rapid wave of technological advancements. Water and wastewater management industries are improving in process transformation by adopting the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and real time data generation. The aim of smart water management system is to increase the management and operational efficiency by using advanced information technologies to reduce expenditure, water loss, and carbon footprint.
Major drivers propelling the growth of smart water management market include the advancement in the technology such as advanced metering technology and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) in water and waste water management. Also, with the development of the smart irrigation practices, there is a rise in demand for smart water management market. According to the research of Coherent Market Insights, smart irrigation market is growing at CAGR of 18.0% during the forecast period (2017-2025), which in turn drives the smart water management market in the forecast period.
North America led the smart water management market and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 19.3% during the forecast period (2017-2025) to reach US$ 14.05 billion by 2025. Rising demand for sustainable energy solution along with stringent government regulations propelling the demand for smart water management market in the region. Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), Clean Water Act (CWA) and regulations on waste water discharge are forcing companies to examine their manufacturing processes. In addition to this, municipal and other facilities in the U.S. need to obtain permits under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program, if their discharge goes directly to surface water. Europe is the second largest market after North America in the smart water management due to healthy economy and advancement in technology. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market in the smart water management due to development in smart city projects.
Among the advanced water meters, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) dominating due to operational benefits such as energy theft detection, meter reading accuracy and response to power outages, along with financial and security benefits.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) dominated in the smart water management solutions segment. SCADA program is specifically designed to provide a real time historian data base, remote alerting functionality, alarm management, notification and optimization along with an open integration platform and a powerful HMI (Human Machine Interface). In open integration platform multiple SCADA systems, information can be organized and unified and HMI provides real time situation awareness, graphical visualization and alarm management on a centralized remote control room or on mobile devices such as smartphone or tablet.

Major Players in the Smart Water Management Market:
Some of the major players in the Smart Water Management Market are General Electric, ABB Group, Itron, Schneider Electric, International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation, Sensus, Elster Group Se, and Siemens Ag.
Smart Water Management is the new system of management of water, revolutionizing the conventional distribution of water with new technologies. Modern utility distribution networks can exchange a large amount of data, which is helpful in efficiency in operation and optimization in the water management. In current water network systems based on large and centralized systems, the management options are limited, some of the major limitation in this management include, less operating efficiency because of the imbalance between supply of and demand for fresh water, high energy requirement for distribution and supply of fresh water, high treatment cost of waste water and low treatment efficiency. Therefore, to overcome these difficulties, smart water management is being adopted by many industries, manufacturing firms, and organizations.
North America and Europe are the major regions in the advancement of smart water management technologies, owing to the high adoption of the new technologies such as advance meter infrastructure technology and SCADA software system technologies by many industries in the region. North America led the smart water management technology in 2016, with the market in the region valued at US$ 2.90 billion and projected to witness a CAGR of 19.3% during the forecast period (2017-2025). Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market for smart water management market, owing to the rising smart irrigation management systems and rising smart city projects. For instance, in India, 100 cities are being developed under the Smart Cities Mission. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market, at a CAGR of 23.1% during the forecast period to reach US$ 11.69 billion by 2025.
