The power monitoring system market size was USD 3.92 billion in 2020. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 4.10 billion in 2021 to USD 5.99 billion by 2028 at a growth rate of 5.6% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unparalleled and staggering, with the power industry witnessing a negative demand globally amid the pandemic. On the basis of our analysis, the global market displayed a decline of -7.1% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The unforeseen rise in CAGR is due to growing market demand and returning to pre-pandemic stages once the pandemic is over.

A power monitoring system is a network of meters connected to the internet to provide real-time data on the power system in a facility. The meters provide an online software system that allows the owners and services to recognize potential problems with the electrical systems. This electric system helps in proper energy management in commercial, residential, and industrial segments.


COVID-19 Pandemic Affects Industrial Activities and Decline in Power Demand Impacts the Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread in more than 200 countries around the world.  This pandemic has impacted several business sectors such as railways, construction, manufacturing, oil & gas, aviation, hospitality, and others. The governments in many countries were forced to impose nationwide lockdowns & restrictions in the wake of the pandemic affecting the economies of nations across the globe. The outbreak has also disrupted supply chains as the governments imposed travel bans. Many large-scale and medium-scale industries were closed and the commercial operations were temporarily shut or postponed. Moreover, the closure of schools and colleges also caused a steep decline in power consumption globally, giving further rise to a reduction in demand for power monitoring systems in facilities.   

The manufacturing industries of such systems are dependent on imports, which further causes uncertainty in manufacturing. The travel and movement restriction disrupted the supply chain significantly and could substantially impact the global forecast.
