Description
Inefficiency Losses Drive Interest in Quality Utility Metering Devices

Every urban locality, whether in the commercial or industrial sector, requires the basic amenities of electricity, water, and gas. In India, expansion of electricity transmission and distribution networks, and water pipelines have been a constant endeavor of the government. While the emphasis was on expanding the reach of these services, recently providers have shifted their focused to minimize waste and improve efficiency. End users are increasingly re-evaluating equipment needs and investing in utility metering products as a means of reducing losses from inadequate monitoring.

This Frost & Sullivan analysis provides a detailed examination of the Indian utility meter markets. By detailing the industry¡¯s competitive structure and providing strategic recommendations, this study allows your firm to successfully optimize its resources within this burgeoning field.

Recent Legislation Requires Mandatory Monitoring, Drives Sales

Manufacturers and vendors of electricity meters have benefitted from a sudden increase in product demand with the approval of the Central Electricity Bill 2000, which proposes 100 percent metering within two years of implementation.This decision was prompted by the need to enhance efficiency and nurture healthy competition, while driving market revenues as well. "A large part of the agricultural sector in India does not measure the consumption of electricity, and the advent of this regulation will greatly multiply the demand for meters. This mandatory metering policy will have an immediate and positive impact on sales and manufacturer revenues," says the author of this research.

Pre-Paid Meters Key to Increasing Market Share

Pre-paid meters are a new feature in the Indian market and participants are rapidly adopting this technology in expectation of the immense potential within this segment. Forward-thinking manufacturers should be able to provide these devices by the end of 2002.

"Offering pre-paid metering is one of several technological innovations that manufacturers are testing. With key strides in software-integrating technology, meters with the provision for pre-paid energy will no longer be a product of the distant future," states the author.

This Frost & Sullivan analysis provides the latest market intelligence, enabling your company to take advantage of key growth opportunities and thrive within this developing market.
