Water and Heat Meters Market Segment Analysis – By Technology
By Technology the Market is segmented as Water Meter (Positive Displacement, Differential Pressure, Ultrasonic, Electromagnetic, Turbine, Coriolis, Multijet, Others), Heat Meter (Multijet, Turbine, Electromagnetic, Ultrasonic, Others). Ultrasonic is estimated to reach $2620.7 Million by the forecast period 2021-2026, growing with a CAGR of 6.5%. Ultrasonic flow metre comes with two transducers that activate sound waves. The rate of the water flowing through a pipe is measured by sound waves. In order to evaluate the flow rate, the transmitter processes signals from the transmitted wave and its reflections. There are different attributes that make it generally appropriate for this form of technology. Ultrasonic metres have a long life and do not need calibration, since there are no moving parts. These metres have a marginal lack of pressure, can calculate incredibly low water flow with high precision, can be mounted in any direction without air flow and reverse water flow being affected. Ultrasonic water metres have been an increasingly common alternative in the different applications of water metering because of all the aforementioned benefits. In December 2020, Diehl Group was selected by The Federal Electricity & Water Authority (FEWA), which supplies electricity and drinking water to the northern Emirates which has led to expansion of Diehl’s HYDRUS ultrasonic meters to upgrade its network. This new contract strengthens Diehl Group’s presence in the UAE further expanding its growth.

The public sewage system covers 540,723 kilometres of sewers and discharged into 10,000 waste water treatment facilities. Water meters measures liquid all phases including sludge by-products, large volumes of fluid carrying suspended solids. In March 2020, Rotterdam (city in Netherland) Integrated Food Projects that are going on in progress that is helping to create carbon-neutral manufacturing factory. Integrated Food Projects are working with London-based drinks manufacturers with an investment of $250 million approx. These manufacturing of factory in Rotterdam is highly using water and heat meter for production of chilled juice drinks by manufacturing 400 million bottles of drinks per year as they are used in many applications such as carbonation, leak detection, tank blanketing, dryer air and others.
Water and Heat Meters Market Segment Analysis – Geography
Global Water and Heat Meters Market is dominated by North America with a market share 35.2% in 2020. Growing interest towards unconventional reserves accompanied with technological advancements leading to the higher well production rates are driving the growth of oil and gas in U.S. The growth of oil and gas industry has poised the growth of water and Heat meters. In 2019, McDermott International, Inc announced that it had been awarded a USD 1.5 billion contract by Saudi Aramco for its Marjan Field. The contract for engineering, acquisition, construction, and installation (EPCI) covers the production of offshore and pipeline oil and gas installations. Such developments leverages a positive impact on the market growth. In 2019, Canadian Utilities Limited entered into a partnership with Quanta Services, Inc. for the Fort McMurray West 500-kV Transmission Project valued at $1.6 billion, hence creating more opportunities for water and heat meters, them being essential for measuring the thermal energy of source and sink in this vertical.
Water meter manufacturers are increasingly producing energy-efficient products to reduce carbon footprint and enable energy savings for the consumers. The rise of energy-efficient appliances can be attributed to the stringent government regulations on electric home appliances and advances in technology. The U.S. Department of energy, mandated the industry manufacturers to use new technologies for the development of energy efficient meters which were rated based on thermal efficiency and standby losses. As energy efficient appliances are designed to utilize minimum energy. More than 80 countries have set standards and labels for energy efficient appliances. For instance, in the USA, an ENERGY STAR certified water meter saves $3500 over its lifetime. With BEE’s Standards and Labelling Program having included water meters as a mandatory appliance, manufacturers produce more energy-efficient products, in turn reducing energy costs and improving demand for water meters. Hence rise in demand for energy efficient products will drive the market demand in the forecast period 2021-2026.
Favourable government subsidies encouraging the use of solar water meters:
Government initiatives in increasing the popularity of solar-powered water meters are likely to propel the water meter market. For instance, in India, the government offers various incentives for the installation of roof-top solar-powered water meters through an initiative called Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). Similarly, the government also provides an interest subsidy, besides a 5% rebate on property tax. Moreover, governments of the U.S, the U.K and so on have been providing several incentives and tax rebates for the installation of solar water meters. In 2016, the United Nations (UN) mandated the use of solar water meters under its solar housing program for new buildings across the world. This will consequently boost the adoption of heaters, hence driving the market during the forecast period. In addition growth in concern among consumers regarding natural resources and energy is encouraging the consumers to shift toward energy-efficient water heating systems in the forecast period 2021-2026.
