Smart Energy Market Analysis - 2027

Global smart energy market size was valued at $124.0 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $253.1 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2020 to 2027. Smart energy is a cost-effective, sustainable, and secure energy system, which focuses on sustainable energy production while reducing the production cost. The smart energy system consists of smart electricity, smart gas, and smart thermal grids. In addition, the application of smart energy system can also eliminate need of conventional fossil fuels.

Robust investment in smart grid technologies is one of the major drivers in the smart energy market. In addition, shift toward efficient energy technologies in China, the U.S., and the UK will further boost the market demand for smart grids. For instance, Government of India is planning to replace 250 million conventional meters into smart meters by 2022. Furthermore, advanced metering infrastructure technology is expected to gain traction during the forecast timeframe, owing to increase in expenditure on infrastructure development. Advanced metering devices have strong demand in homes, offices and industrial plants for efficient energy management and easy monitoring of energy usage. However, smart energy requires high capital investment and integration of complex technologies, which are the major challenges during the initial phase. Installation of smart energy involves hardware and software components, including instrumentation, network infrastructure and network management software. In addition, the system requires integration of large number of systems, including work management systems, mobile workforce management, SCADA/DMS, and distribution automation systems. Nonetheless, favorable government policies and increase in emphasis on renewable power sources are expected to create lucrative opportunities in the market.


The global smart energy market is segmented on the basis of product, end-user industry, and region. On the basis of product, it is divided into smart grid, digital oilfield, and smart solar, and home energy management system. Based on end-user industry, it is categorized into residential, industrial, and commercial. Region-wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Major players have adopted product launch, collaboration, and acquisition to sustain the intense market competition. Some of the key players profiled in the report include General Electric, Itron, Honeywell International, Siemens, ABB Group, and Larsen & Toubro.

Global Smart Energy Market, By Region

Asia-Pacific accounted for a significant market share. This is attributed to growing application of smart energy devices predominantly in China. For instance, in March 2019, China Southern Power Grid announced to invest around $25.3 billion for smart energy grid in the Pearl River Delta region. This will improve Guangzhou and Shenzhen cities power outages. In addition, growing emphasis on the usage of solar and wind power sources to reduce carbon emission will positively drive the market growth in Asia-Pacific.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of leading companies, the global smart energy market is heading toward an expansion phase. This is mainly attributed to a significant surge in demand for smart grid systems and distributed energy systems in residential and commercial areas for small and medium scale applications. With such systems, operators can easily predict the demand and can prevent the overload, and it also gives the operators time to act. In addition, the consumers could also set alarms on the maximum demand level limiting the usage through load shedding. Furthermore, growing emphasis on the usage of renewable power sources, coupled with favorable government policies is expected to propel the market growth.
