THE WORLDWIDE MARKET FOR SEMICONDUCTORS & COMPONENTS IN UTILITY METERS — 2006 EDITION
Price: Single-user license (PDF) – $7,440

This new 190 page report, compiled after extensive research & industry consultation, shows that the utility meter and automated meter reading (AMR) market will offer strong, sustainable growth opportunities for electronic component suppliers over the next five years. Growth in the electronic component market will result from ongoing replacement of mechanical meters with electronic products and the widespread adoption of remote meter reading technology will further increase the electronic component content in meters.  

Asia will offer the greatest new opportunities for component suppliers as it becomes both the largest location for both utility meter manufacturing and end-product consumption. This component market – which was estimated at over $500 million in 2004 – will increase significantly throughout the forecast period due to ongoing penetration of static metering technology featuring increasing communications capabilities.

Worldwide, there will be continued demand for high quality, leading-edge products and hence reduced price erosion for component manufacturers.

The report provides detailed estimates for the size of the worldwide market for semiconductors and electronic components used in utility meters and automated meter reading systems.
