Utility AMI Analytics for the Smart Grid 2013-2020: Applications, Markets and Strategies


What does the future hold for the smart grid’s AMI market? Given flattening smart meter shipments across mature markets globally, AMI vendors are now seeking new revenue streams, and the data analytics space is emerging as an attractive opportunity with its scalable, recurring revenue-based model.

According to GTM Research, aggregate expenditure on AMI analytics is expected to total $9.7 billion by 2020. As the market develops, opportunities will increase for vendors that are able to offer turnkey analytics solutions without the need for customized integration. Even now, consolidation has begun as many companies with origins as pure-play software providers are absorbed by larger conglomerates, as with the 2012 acquisitions of EcoLogic Analytics and DataRaker by Landis + Gyr and Oracle, respectively.
