“China is the key market in the region, where the government is driving the adoption of smart meters in order to better manage the growth in demand for energy,” says Pyramid Research Analyst at Large, Jan ten Sythoff.
However, adoption in most other large, emerging countries in the region is more limited, with operators focused on cost reduction, capacity management and subscription acquisition. “Total subscriptions are expected to increase from 18.4 million in 2010 to 104.8 million in 2016. During this time, revenues are expected to increase from $423 million to $1.80 billion, representing a CAGR of 27.3 percent,” he comments.
