Global Gas Meters Smart & Standard Market 2022-2023 & 2024-2028 -

The "Gas Meters Smart & Standard Ed 5 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The Gas Meter market rose to 80.8 million meters in 2023 with a value of $5.5 billion and is predicted to reach 116 million meters by 2028.

The new edition of Gas Meters Smart & Standard 2024 has identified three significant factors driving demand.

Smart gas metering is taking off, after lagging behind electricity smart metering. Large deployments of smart gas meters are identified in Europe, Asia Pacific and Central Asia.

Ultrasonic meters have long been used for bulk and custody metering but their entry into the residential market has been hampered by price. Costs have now come down and they are poised to challenge the traditional dominance of residential diaphragm meters. Large deployments have been contracted in the Netherlands, in the USA and Canada, in Japan and potentially in the UK, with China simmering. The leading international manufacturers have developed G1.6-16 ultrasonic meters and regulators are accrediting them around the globe.

Despite net zero targets, opposition from green activists and an explosion of wind power and solar PV, fossil fuels are still the mainstay of global energy. Natural gas is well positioned as a transitional fuel because of lower emissions than coal and oil. City gas distribution is on ambitious growth paths in some of the largest markets.
