Smart grid is an innovative power distribution technology that facilitates secure, efficient and effective control of the production and distribution of electricity. Electronic control, metering, and monitoring are major aspects of smart grid. A smart grid includes several instruments and appliances that works together to scrutinize the flow of current. Smart grid effectively measure and balance the demand and supply of electricity at the connected device across the remote areas. A smart grid is very beneficial system for electricity distribution that collects, stores and process huge data.

Loss of electricity during transmission and distribution has been remained major concern in Asia Pacific. Smart grid provides effective and efficient distribution of electricity with minimum loss during the transmission. This is one of the most important driving factors for growth of smart grid. Additionally, change in government policies and regulations in emerging economies are expected to fuel the growth of smart grid industry. Higher reliability, safety and efficiency are also expected to trigger smart grid market across the world. However, high cost of installation is expected to hamper the growth of smart grid industry to some extent.
