One of the major challenges faced by developed as well as developing market for sustainable development is to ensure reliable water supply and sanitation services for citizens. More than billion people now live in water-scarce regions and over 3.5 Bn population expected to witness water scarcity by 2025. As stated in UN World Water Development Report, by 2050, one out of four people projected to live in area affected by recurring or chronic scarcity of freshwater. Pertaining to scarcity of fresh water, water management policies have been high on the agenda for several governing bodies around the world. Further, looming global impact of climate change in terms of sea level rise, flooding and longer drought periods adding more pressure on the availability of freshwater resources. Smart water management seeks to alleviate challenges in water management and water sector through the integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products, solution and services. Such technologies are adapted to monitor water resources, which enables to prioritize and manage maintenance issues more effectively.
Overall smart water management market is segmented based on meter type, meter read technology, solution, and service. In 2017, market was primarily commanded by Automated Meter Reading (AMR) water meters due to benefits it offers such as limited meter-reading expense, reduced billing errors and real-time billing information among several others. North America was the largest market for smart water management in 2017 trailed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The recent trend towards water management through monitoring usage and leakage prevention has been involved in driving uptake of smart water management market in North America. In addition, upgrading of aging water infrastructure is projected to drive the demand for smart water management solutions.
