Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is one of the Smart Grid tools that allows two-way communication between services provider and customers. This system obtains data with help of smart meter installed in various sectors such as residential, commercial business, and industries. These system help with cost controlling and minimizing the wastage of energy. This factor is expected to positively impact the growth advanced infrastructure metering market.

Increasing demand for energy is one of the major factor driving growth of the market

Increasing trend of digitalization is responsible for increasing the demand of energy consumption. According to the Energy Information Administration's (EIA), world energy consumption is estimated to grow by 28% between 2015 and 2040. Growing population and economic development are factors responsible for increasing demand of the energy. Moreover, increasing adoption of smart home technology in turn increases the utilization of smart devices, which are based on IOT. Hence, consumption of energy, which positively increase with digitization is expected to propel growth of the market.
