Water Meter Market Statistics- 2030

The global water meter market size was valued at $19,700.0 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $29,159.4 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2030.  The process of measuring water usage is known as water metering. Water meters track how much water is used in residential and commercial buildings that are connected to a public water delivery system. They are also utilized to figure out how much fluid is flowing through a certain section of the system. Water meters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are differentiated by flow measuring technique, end-user type, needed flow rates, and accuracy requirements.

The global water meter market is led by increased water use, growing need for water management, worldwide industrial expansion, supporting government laws, need to enhance water utility usage and efficiency, and increased need to decrease non-revenue water losses. In addition, water usage is growing day by day as population grows. The amount of water that is not returned to the source after use is referred to as consumption. Water meters have an impact on water usage as they charge users based on the amount of water consumed. They also make it simpler to discover leaks in water line, resulting in reduced water waste.


Novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing enormous impact on lives of people and overall community. Originating as a crisis to human health, it now poses significant threat to worldwide trade, economy, and finance. Due to continuous lockdown in key global countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted production of many items in the water meter business. The players in water meter market can afford a complete lockdown only for a limited period, after which they would have to alter their investment plans. Furthermore, number of COVID-19 cases are expected to reduce in the near term as vaccine for COVID-19 has been introduced in the market. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of water meter companies at their full-scale capacities, which would aid the water meter market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection instances start to decline, equipment and machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Smart Water Meter segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

According to the UN Water Development Report, global water usage has increased by 1% per year since the 1980s and is predicted to continue at this pace through 2050. This growth in demand for water is fueled by residential and industrial sectors. Hence, owing to such factors, various key players are coming up with new and advanced water meter products for residential and industrial sectors. For instance, in January 2020, Master Meter Inc. has launched the Sonata Ultrasonic meter for residential purpose. Sonata combines very precise flow measurement with smart IoT-ready electronics to give a constant and reliable stream of revenue as well as intelligence to provide important real-time data straight from the meter.
