The global mobile water meter market is experiencing a significant growth and will grow considerably in next few years. Growth in population, urbanization, and industrialization has exponentially increased the demand for water over the past few decades, and the fact that only 3% of the total water available on earth is usable for humankind makes portable water extremely scarce. As optimum usage of water being the only way for sustainable development, governing bodies across the globe are increasingly making use of water meters in their water distribution networks to track the usage of water; thus, being a key driver for the growth of global water meter market. Water meters are used majorly in residential, industrial, and agricultural water distribution systems. As the end users are billed based on their usage of water, they minimize the wastage of water, which further increases the demand for water meters. The major players in the industry are determined to develop advanced water meters for reducing the initial costs and improving accuracy.


A water meter is installed along a portable water or waste water pipe, which computes the volume of water flowing through the pipe based on the velocity of the flow. As the supply of irrigation water to a particular region is based on the type of crop grown, the water meters help the governing bodies to accurately track the usage of water; thus, avoiding over irrigation and wastage. Water meters also help in detecting leaks in the distribution network, which reduces the wastage of water. The necessity of optimum usage of water will ensure substantial growth of water meter market throughout the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the water meters industry attributed to the lockdown in countries worldwide. This has hampered the growth of water meter market from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2021.
  • The major demand for water meters was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Canada, Germany, Italy, UK, and China, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for mobile cranes.
  • COVID-19 affected the sales of water meters in the second quarter of 2020 as the demand witnessed a steep decline due to restrictions on industrial and municipal maintenance activities.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Water meter manufacturers can afford declining sales only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce the expenses. Whereas few players also adopted employee lay-offs to sustain during the COVID-19 health crisis
  • Water meter manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce.

Top Impacting Factors

The increasing restrictions laid by governments across the world to reduce wastage of water and the methods adopted by local governing authorities are the major factors driving the growth of water meter market. The usability of water meters in industries and waste water management systems, further increases the demand for water meters. The cost efficiency of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) and advanced features offered by Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) makes water meters suitable for both small- and large-scale utility providers. The technological advancements in water meters has also reduced the required number of meter reading vehicles, thus reducing COemissions. Advanced water meters also increase the control of governing authorities over their utilities as they can cut the water supply of customers with unpaid bills which further increases the demand for water meters. The lack of awareness about advanced water reading meters in developing nations and the high initial investment required by utility providers for installation of water meters in their existing utilities are the major restraints in the growth of water meter market. The development of smart water meter which further reduces the operating costs and increases accuracy ensures the rapid growth of water meters market throughout he forecast period.

Market Trends

  • HotRod AMR system offered by Mueller Water Products, Inc. significantly reduces meter reading times by collecting encoded data that is transmitted from meters, which includes water consumption levels, leak alerts. The meter readings can also be stored for a long as 7 months.
  • The use of ultrasonic water meters increases the accuracy of the readings as it is insensitive to air bubbles and suspended particles.
  • The flowIQ 2200 ultrasonic water meter developed by Kamsturp, introduced integrated acoustic leak detection that enables utility providers to monitor the distribution network for possible leaks and also provides the location of leaks.
  • Gridstream developed by Landis+Gyr, provides a single multipurpose network for electric, water, and gas metering. Such advanced systems can be an essential element for smart cities.
