Increasing Industrialization to Boost Asia Pacific Gas Meters Market
The report also presents a regional analysis of the worldwide market for gas meters. As per the report, Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa are the prime regional markets for gas meters across the world. Among these, Asia Pacific has acquired the leading position in the overall market and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period, thanks to the increasing industrialization in this region. China, Japan, Australia, India, and the ASEAN countries have surfaced as the leading domestic markets for gas meters in Asia Pacific. The rising consumption of natural gas in Asia Pacific is projected to propel this regional market substantially in the years to come.
Europe is also expected to witness healthy growth in the demand for gas meters over the next few years on account of the rising enforcement of stringent regulations regarding the usage of smart meters and the increasing uptake of natural gas as primary fuel. The U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and Russia are expected to lead the Europe market for gas meters, states the report.
Increasing Enforcement of Favorable Regulations to Propel Global Gas Meters Market
"The growing usage of natural gas as a primary energy source is the key factor behind the growth of the global gas meters market," states the author of this report. With natural gas replacing crude oil in a number of applications, its consumption across the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors has increased tremendously, which is reflecting on the growth of this market greatly.
On the flip side, the incompetence of gas meters in managing large data volumes generated from smart gas meters, high initial and switching costs, and the rising uptake of hybrid metering systems may restrict the rise of this market to some extent over the forthcoming years. However, the rising enforcement of favorable regulations and laws regarding adoption of smart meters is anticipated to boost this market considerably in the years to come, notes the study.
