Published Date : May 29, 2017

ALBANY, New York, May 29, 2017 – The global smart grid sensors market is poised to develop at a CAGR of over 15% from 2017 to 2021, according to findings of a report recently added to MarketResearchReports.biz. This can be attributed to the evident shift from rigid to flexible grid structures in the power utility sector, fueled by recent technological advancements, rapid urbanization, and changing climate policies. The 70-page research publication is titled “Global Smart Grid Sensors Market 2017-2021” and discusses in depth the various forces driving and inhibiting the growth of this market. 

The mounting usage of the Internet of Things and various IoT devices has been one of the most prominent trends impacting the smart grid sensors market and the soaring adoption of smart home appliances will continue revolutionizing the dynamics of the global market. Smart grids enable reduced stress and improved efficiency and as more and more electric meters get replaced by smart electricity grids, the demand for smart grid sensors is sure to rise. However, ongoing concerns pertaining to cyber security will continue to pose a threat to the growth of this market. Nevertheless, obsolete power grids across the globe present several opportunities for players in the smart grid sensors market. 

Smart grid sensors comprise a number of software and hardware components. Of these, hardware components hold the dominant share and will continue to do so through 2021 owing to the need to monitor the smart grid, to gather information, and transmit said information in real time via wireless or wired communication channels.
