Commercial segment

The commercial segment of the digital power meter market is expected to be worth USD 1.13 billion by 2021, driven by their increased adoption in spaces such as schools, hospitals, restaurants, and shopping centers. The increase in commercial power thefts and tampering of meters are two other important factors that are expected to drive the demand for digital power meters in the commercial segment. Apart from cost saving, conserving electricity also helps commercial buildings to earn environmental ratings such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, which improves the social image or outlook of such buildings and establishments.

Industrial segment

The industrial sector has been expanding due to the rising globalization and industrialization across various manufacturing setups. The rising need to effectively manage power and minimize the losses incurred is pushing for the increased adoption of smart power grids and digital power meters,” says Thanikachalam.
