Executive Summary

This report provides suppliers and customers of smart grid solutions with an independent analysis of global smart grid market activity in the second quarter (Q2) of 2012. Verdantix selected this subject for detailed study to help executives in market-facing and corporate roles understand the state of the global smart grid market and identify the best smart grid opportunities for investment. The analysis, based on the quarterly Verdantix Smart Grid Deal Tracker, finds that during Q2 2012, the North American share of the global smart grid market fell compared to previous quarters as US utilities ran out of stimulus funding to support further projects. The high M&A activity in the smart grid market is a sign of greater competition, as large technology firms turn to acquisitions to fill gaps in their product portfolios and to gain immediate access to new markets.
