The report states that the market will expand at an 18.20% CAGR between 2013 and 2019 and rise to a valuation of US$118.1 bn by 2019. The report credits factors such as the rising modernization of old grid networks and the rising popularity of pre-payment for electricity for the increased adoption of smart grids across the globe. Factors such as favorable regulations and policies, the mounting demand for power in major regional markets, high transmission and distribution losses in Asia Pacific, and the rising demand for a secure, reliable, and high-quality power supply are also propelling the market for smart grids significantly. However, the high cost associated with the deployment of smart grid networks, coupled with the absence of interoperability standards, is a factor that are hindering the market’s growth to a certain extent.


The report segments the global smart grid market on the basis of two criteria: technology and geography.On the basis of technology, the market is segmented into hardware and software, distribution automation, advanced metering infrastructure, transmission upgrades, communication technologies, and cyber security.
