Global Advanced Metering Infrastructure Market: Overview
The global advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) market is driven by the increase in the construction of smart grids. Advanced metering infrastructure enables remote meter reading, which is error free and identifies any problem with the energy system. It also inspects energy, reduces load during shedding, and performs load outlining. Thus, the demand for advanced metering infrastructure is growing and this will boost the market across the globe. AMI enables two way communication between clients, thus boosting their demand. The need for enhanced customer service and improved utility efficiency will also create a heightened demand for AMI. Moreover, the rising demand for energy will push the demand for advanced metering infrastructure.

Global Advanced Metering Infrastructure Market: Key Trends
The need to reduce electricity theft has become essential with growing incidences of theft of electricity. The high cost of electricity is also a reason behind the increase in the theft of electricity. All these factors are creating a need for advanced metering infrastructure. Advanced metering infrastructure helps consumers monitor and manage their energy consumption along with time of use rate, fueling their adoption. Utility companies are making use of advanced metering infrastructure so as to identify peak time of load and manage energy demand. The increasing support from governments and regulatory bodies is expected to ensure a continued demand for advanced metering infrastructure. However, data management can be an issue. In addition to this, meter replacement is another factor which poses a challenge for the market.
