The primary driving force behind the growing number of smart water meter installations is the water scarcity concern, which implies high water consumption, water losses, and leakage issues. Another compelling factor is the ability of smart water meters to monitor and diagnose water usage patterns in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, while also providing detailed cost tracking for resource management. According to Transforma Insights, here will be approximately 700 million smart water meters deployed worldwide by 2030.

Major Applications within Water Metering
IoT connected smart meters can offer a wide range of applications in water management, from monitoring water consumption to detecting leaks:
|Water Consumption Monitoring
|Continuous water consumption data collection and its transmission in real-time to centralized systems for remote monitoring of usage patterns and trends without manual intervention.
|Utilizing flow monitoring and pressure sensors to detect abnormal flow patterns and immediate notifications.
|Based on the gathered water data, specific water conservation measures based on real-time data are implemented.
|Ensuring that customers are billed based on their actual consumption, minimizing disputes.
|Monitoring water pressure within the distribution network, preventing infrastructure damage.
