Navigant Research Report Finds Global Home Energy Management Revenue Is Projected to Reach More than $12 Billion in 2028

Key market drivers include consumer demand, accessible hardware, and environmental concerns

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#AdvancedMetering--A new report from Navigant Research examines the home energy management (HEM) market, its key players, and important technology trends, along with the main market drivers and inhibitors.

New technologies and approaches are altering the HEM market. While advanced metering infrastructure projects have reached maturity, other technologies in front of and behind the meter have taken on greater importance. Smart thermostats and smart plugs, for example, have gained traction among residential customers and become key elements of a HEM strategy. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global HEM revenue is projected to grow from nearly $4.4 billion in 2019 to more than $12 billion in 2028.

“There have been major advances in how data can be used for HEM solutions. With improved data analytics tools, more utilities and vendors are leveraging those to support residential customers seeking deeper insights into how they might use energy more efficiently,” says Neil Strother, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Additionally, new channels to engage with customers on HEM topics have emerged, such as via voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Home.”

While inhibitors like lack of standardization and cost keep the adoption of HEM solutions in check, there also are substantial market drivers. Customer engagement enabling new touchpoints, access to more advanced hardware, and growing environmental concerns are among the key drivers. Assuming healthy growth for the worldwide HEM market, Navigant Research expects revenues from HEM solutions to expand to $4.6 billion in North America, and to $3.6 billion in Europe in 2028.

The report, Home Energy Management Overview, provides a comprehensive overview of the HEM market, main drivers, barriers, key players, and important technology trends. In addition to profiles of key players, the report includes a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis for each firm. Navigant Research expects healthy growth for the HEM market, with worldwide revenue for HEM solutions projected to nearly triple between 2019 and 2028.
