Itron Inc. announced that it is ranked No. 1 for market position estimates in the latest water meter market analysis report published by IMS Research. The report, "The World Market for Water Meters—2011 Edition," was published in October 2011.
Itron provides innovative water resource management solutions—from meters, leak detection devices and communication modules, to network infrastructure, and back-office data collection and analytic software—that enable utilities to manage supply, optimize usage and conserve resources.
“Itron takes its leadership position seriously, particularly during such a critical time in the industry when water suppliers around the world are facing growing populations and infrastructure challenges,” said Marcel Regnier, Itron president and chief operating officer. “In developing countries, providing people with secure potable water is the primary concern; yet, in the most developed countries, making distribution systems more reliable, smarter and energy efficient are key drivers for technology investments, together with improved consumer service."
