Smart Gas Meters

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Smart Gas Meters

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0286778/Smart-Gas-Meters.html#utm_source=pr...

The market for natural gas meters is in the midst of a significant long-term transitional period, moving from the traditional manual-read devices to more intelligent ones with sophisticated capabilities. These smart gas meters are expected to create efficiencies for utilities and open the door to enhanced applications that can benefit both utilities and customers.

Healthy growth in worldwide shipments of these meters is expected through the end of this decade, but the pace of growth will differ by region. Shipments will rise quickly in some Western European countries because of regulatory mandates that call for system-wide replacements of older meters. In Asia Pacific, emerging economies will also see smart gas meter shipments increase, though not as quickly as in Europe. In North America, the adoption of smart gas metering will be more muted because advanced meters with basic one-way communications capability have already been deployed. Moreover, not enough strong drivers are in place for utilities in North America to build a business case for moving more quickly to the latest technology. Worldwide, annual shipments of standard, advanced, and smart gas meters and communications modules will increase sharply from 22 million worldwide in 2012 to 33 million in 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%.

This Pike Research report examines the global market opportunity for smart gas meters, analyzing the drivers and inhibitors shaping the market, along with major technology issues. The report also provides market forecasts through 2020 for smart gas meter shipments and the associated revenue, broken down by meter type and by region. Key vendor profiles, analysis of new market players, and a guide for utilities to build a business case are included as well.

Key Questions Addressed:

How many advanced and smart gas meters will be deployed through 2020?

What is the size of the revenue opportunity for the smart gas meter market?

What technology issues are shaping this market?

Who are some of the key players in the smart gas meter market?
