Smart meter market competition enters white hot, how can enterprises win

recently, State Grid Corporation of China released the bid winning results of the second bidding for electric energy meters and power consumption information acquisition equipment in 2018, with 6 frequencies and 3 enterprises winning the bid, with 2 The bidding amount after purchasing the machine reached 6.964 billion yuan, which attracted the attention of many domestic electricity meter enterprises

the power industry is the basic energy industry of the national economy. With the development of social economy, the dependence of various industries on electricity has increased significantly, and the requirements for power supply reliability and power quality have increased day by day

in order to achieve the goal of reliable, safe, economic and efficient electricity and the sustainable and green development of economy and society, China formulated the smart electricity development plan in July 2009. According to the plan, China will build a unified "strong smart electricity" by 2020

as one of the key terminal products of intelligent electricity construction, intelligent electricity meters and electricity consumption information acquisition system products play an important supporting role in the realization of informatization, automation and intellectualization of electricity. In recent years, the technological progress and rapid development of the power industry and smart electricity have led to the prosperity of China's electricity metering market. As the most important product of electrical instruments and meters in China, the output of low-density smart meters has been at a high level, and leading enterprises represented by Weisheng group, Linyang energy, Ningbo Samsung Medical Electric, Yantai Oriental Weston electric, Haixing power, etc. have emerged, and have shown strong competitive strength in the national bidding in recent years

with the rapid growth of domestic smart electricity investment, it is expected that 460million smart meters will be added in China during the "13th five year plan", and leading enterprises in the industry will continue to benefit in the future

however, with the basic completion of the first round of smart meter replacement in China and South Africa, the market increment of China's smart meter industry began to shrink day by day, and the competition between power meter enterprises began to further intensify, entering a white hot stage. In the second electricity meter bidding in 2018, the ranking of 18 enterprises that continue to win the bid has increased by varying degrees, and the ranking of 25 enterprises has decreased by varying degrees, all indicating the fierce competition among electricity meter enterprises

in the increasingly fierce market competition, how to seek new market breakthroughs is a problem that domestic watt hour meter enterprises must face and think about

at present, countries around the world are committed to the planning and infrastructure construction of smart electricity with the goal of stable, efficient, energy-saving, environmental protection and safe use of electricity. The International Energy Agency estimates that smart electricity will cover 80% of the world's population by 2020

the construction of smart electricity has brought broad market demand for global smart electricity meters and power consumption information acquisition and processing system products. It is estimated that nearly 2billion smart meters will be installed in the world by 2020, and smart meters will cover 80% of the world's population who share the solution in case of failure of a pull-down stretcher, and the penetration rate of smart meters will reach 60%. This is a great opportunity for Chinese electric energy meter enterprises to explore overseas markets

China is a large country producing electric energy meters. At present, the main products such as inductive electric energy meters, electronic electric energy meters and intelligent electric energy meters have reached or approached the technical standards of developed countries, and the production and R & D capabilities have been able to meet the different needs of the international market. Moreover, the price advantage is obvious, and they have strong competitiveness in the world

with the development of e-commerce and international trade, more and more domestic watt hour meter enterprises began to try to "go global", and gained more and more market share in emerging smart meter market countries such as Asia, Africa and Latin America by virtue of technology and cost advantages. Now in June, Weisheng group and Haixing power won the bid of "Bangladesh BREB smart watt hour meter project" of 84million yuan and 80million yuan respectively to provide prepaid smart watt hour meters and installation services for Bangladesh

therefore, domestic electric energy meter enterprises should not only pay attention to the competition in the domestic market, but also actively participate in the competition in the international market, actively introduce foreign advanced technology and business and profit models, combine domestic advantageous resources, improve their own strength, and realize the leapfrog development of enterprises through the joint development of domestic and foreign markets
