Raising concerns about greenhouse gas emissions and the need to reduce carbon footprint resulted in the increased use of natural gas driving this market. In addition to this, the growing demand to reduce energy losses and the need to increase energy security are also considered as major drivers for the growth of the market. Due to the increased number of end users, the effort of collating the data with no irregularities remains a challenge to this market. The increase in the adoption of gas and numerous regulatory policies rolled out in many regions should be perceived as a growth opportunity for the market. In the recent past, Brazil has also rolled out smart gas meters to prevent energy theft providing a positive outlook to the vendors.
Based on this report, the global smart gas market is segmented on the basis of the technology (solutions), devices available, services offered, end users and by geography. The residential sector is estimated to have the maximum market share of approximately 75% due to the supportive incentive schemes offered for the installation of smart gas meters in residential buildings.
The geographical coverage of this study includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America is estimated to hold the largest market share followed by Europe. The various regulatory policies in Europe led to the positive development of the smart gas market. APAC is estimated to have the third largest market share while the market in Middle East & Africa is estimated to show a sluggish growth in the forecast period. France, Italy, and the UK are estimated to emerge as major markets for smart gas.
