Smart Water Management Market, By Smart Water Meter, By Solutions, By Application - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Smart water management refers to the techniques, systems, and devices used to optimize the consumption of water and reduce the impact of polluted water on health, environment, and equipment at minimum cost investment. Rise in urbanization is projected to be a major driver for the smart water management market, which is expected to expand at a significant CAGR over the forecast period.

Existence of outdated infrastructure and rising operating costs for water management to fuel the market growth

According to the Water Environment Research Foundation, the energy potential of wastewater and biogases/bio solids exceeds by over 10 times the energy required for its treatment. Furthermore, according to National Energy Technology Laboratory, thermoelectric power plants use around 41% of the available fresh water for the production of electricity. Over a time period of 2005-2030, the dependence on thermoelectric power generation is expected to increase by over 1.2x, compelling the authorities to manage resources efficiently. This, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for smart water management market. Aging distribution infrastructure, requirement to limit capital costs, increasing cost of energy, and limited finances for optimal management of available resources are projected to create significant growth opportunities for the smart water management market over the forecast period.
