Exporting electronic components for smart meters to Italy, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and France
Smart meters are a growing application industry for electronic components such as sensors, chips, capacitors, resistors, some wound components and various electromechanical components. Penetration of smart meters is increasing in Western Europe, with the fastest future uptake predicted in France, the UK and Spain. OEMs will increasingly be looking for lower-cost and more integrated components and DC exporters will have opportunities to supply this type of component for integration systems on chip. In addition, DCs can make inroads through co-design and co-innovation with European OEMs, particularly where new applications are considered, e.g. in Italy, Sweden, Denmark.
