    --  The global meter market is driven by large deployments of smart meters,
        huge and almost complete for the first round in China, quickening in
        Europe, starting in the rest of Asia but slowing down in the United
        States. Japan and Korea are at the forefront of the Smart Grid and the
        Smart City.

    --  We are entering the phase of smart meters replacements with the 2nd
        generation smart meter.

    --  Several big countries go large on prepayment metering. Prepayment meters
        (PPM) provide a solution to the chronic problems of low income budgeting
        and energy theft in the developing world; the Indian sub-content,
        sub-Saharan Africa and South America. In some African countries only 50%
        of electricity generated is paid for; half is not even billed to the
        distribution companies and another half is stolen by the consumers.
        Advanced PPMs are delivering with smart metering.

    --  There is still a large demand for basic meters in the many countries
        which are not yet going 'smart'. This report covers all segments of the
        meter market; residential basic and smart, prepayment, AMR & AMI, C&I
        and Grid.

    --  The global market is estimated at XXX million meters in 2016, rising to
        XXX million in 2020 but then falling to XXX million in 2021. The reason
        for the decline in 2021 is that several of the largest deployments of
        smart meters are scheduled for completion in 2020 and currently it looks
        as if this will be achieved, notably in France and Spain. The largest
        rollout in the world, in China, is nearing completion and the
        replacement cycle is starting.

    --  Global demand for meters has followed a cyclical pattern for the last
        one hundred years determined by economic and demographic growth. This is
        being turned on its head in some countries with fast national smart
        deployments. The pattern will change totally but we can still project
        the future demand cycle, with the same methodology and different inputs.
        See examples in this report.
    --  The overall average price of meters will increase because the mix of
        meters will change by a fairly large margin, from cheaper basic meters
        to smart meters and PPM meters. The fundamentals such as BOM, affecting
        prices of individual meter categories will remain fairly constant ,
        except for the more advanced smart meters which will benefit from
        progress on the learning curve.

    --  Cyber security has become a significant issue for metering with the
        advent of smart meters, with a growing number of attacks on grids. For
        some time, cyber security has been an increasing concern for the IT and
        Telecoms industries, and for distributed control systems throughout all
        industries. In 2017 the NHS, the UK National Health Service which is the
        fifth biggest employer in the world, was attacked with ransomware and
        large swathes of it were paralysed, causing cancellations of operations
        and medical appointments.

The report contains a section for each of the regions and countries listed below, outlining:

    --  The electricity supply sector
    --  Regulatory policy and decisions regarding smart metering
    --  Analysis of the meter market in number of meters, $ value and average
        selling price for each type of meter
    --  Market size in numbers of meters and value in 2016 and forecasts from
        2017 to 2021

    --  Analysis of meter types; electromechanical (1 and 3 phase), basic
        electronic (1 and 3 phase), prepayment, AMR/AMI, C&I and grid meters.
