Utility communication Market by Component (Hardware, Software), Application (Oil and Gas Utilities, Transmission and Distribution, Others), End User (Industrial, Commercial, Residential), Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2021 to 2028

Newark, NJ, Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global utility communication market is expected to grow from USD 15.6 billion in 2020 and reach USD 33.4 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

The exponential growth of utility communication networks has been fueled by the growth of renewable energy and dispersed resources. During the projected period, smart city projects throughout the world are expected to see greater use of utility communication, in addition to renewable resource generation. Most nations are working on advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), which comprises the installation of smart meters and other electronic equipment that enable two-way communication and data transmission between end-users and utilities. Wrong billing, power theft and fraud, late payments, and meter reading expenses are all factors impacting the transition from standard meters to smart meters. Over the projection period, these factors are expected to drive demand for utility communication. The utility business, on the other hand, is heavily regulated, which is a key impediment to the market's expansion.

Utility communication refers to a combination of technologies and equipment that are used to coordinate many components of a complex utility distribution system. It keeps track of grid equipment and manages it, as well as measuring network performance and providing real-time data. For the effective operation of contemporary power systems, advancements in IT systems led to the creation of automated distribution networks for utilities (power, energy, etc.). Because of the need for automation, the utility communication industry is predicted to rise significantly soon all over the world. This communication technology enables the safe and efficient transport of utilities like electricity and gas. Because of the difficulties in managing numerous advanced metering infrastructure platforms, many utilities are having difficulty extracting value from existing systems. Increased demand for utility communication networks has resulted from a sudden surge in power consumption without equivalent increases in generation and transmission capacity throughout the world.


Growing investment in smart grids, network upgrades, a focus on improving grid reliability, increasing operational efficiency, and reducing outage time, as well as government measures to encourage the use of smart grid technology, are driving the market. The market's growth is being stifled by costly installation and maintenance costs, as well as a lack of standards and compatibility. Market expansion is predicted to be fueled by an increase in the number of smart city projects, rising acceptance of wireless communication technologies like as 5G, and the replacement of old communication networks. Oil price volatility, reduced demand for oil, supply chain interruptions owing to COVID-19, and the danger of cyber-attacks and natural disasters are all threats to the market.
