Research and Markets: Global Smart Water Network Market 2014-2018
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rzqpc8/global_smart)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Smart Water Network Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Smart Water Network market will grow at
a CAGR of 15 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The use of AMR technology for water metering enables water utilities to
collect data remotely from the water meters using wireless communication
systems, although not vice versa. Technology such as AMI enables
communication from both ends. The two-way communication feature of AMI
enables real-time data monitoring and control of water consumptin. AMI
comprises a wide range of metering devices, software processes,
communication media, and data management systems.
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is
increased government support to manage water resources effectively by
reducing water wastage. Governments in many countries support water
utilities in implementing plans and programs to monitor and control
water consumption in households and industries.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this
market is the susceptibility of smart water networks to cyber attacks.
Smart water networks have high levels of computing and internet
protocol-based connectivity, making them susceptible to hackers. These
networks are also at risk of virus attacks and mishandling of data.
