Gas Meter Market Overview:

Gas has a variety of practical uses, including cooking, heating, and powering some equipment. It is also a very affordable option to power your home. A gas meter is an instrument used to gauge the amount or rate of gas flow, it keeps track of how much natural gas is used in homes and businesses. Further, it transmits that information to energy suppliers for billing reasons. Megajoules (MJ) are used to measure and record gas consumption for properties. Megajoule-hours (MJ/h) are the most common unit of measurement for energy consumption in gas appliances, it aids utility companies in observing gas meter behavior and forecasting demand using data from gas meters. Additionally, the market expansion of different gas meters is further fueled by significant backing from governments across the world.

Growth Factors:

The gas meter market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period with the rising adoption of gas pipelines in the urban areas. Administrations in developing countries are offering gas pipeline services with adequate subsidies and tax exemptions, such pipelines require gas meters to manage, detect and analyze the consumption of gas by the users. This element is expected to act as a growth factor for the market.

One of the main variables currently having a favorable impact on the industry is the rising demand for natural gas as a result of expanding urbanization. In addition, there are strict rules that governments in different nations have put in place to make sure that every home and small business installs a smart gas meter so they can track their regular gas expenses and consumption level.

The expansion of contemporary dwellings and cities, together with improvements in gas metering, were the main drivers of the market in recent years. During this time, ultrasonic and smart meters entered the market, substantially enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of gas measurement. Thus, the market is observed to maintain its growth in the upcoming period.

Gas Meter Market Dynamics:


Rising utilization of coriolis flowmeter

Over the past five years, one of the flowmeter kinds with the quickest growth has been Coriolis flowmeters. Users are replacing differential-pressure (DP) meters with them in numerous process facilities. When the cost of ownership is taken into account, many customers feel them to be a decent investment despite their higher original purchase price. The fact that Coriolis flowmeters measure mass flow directly, as opposed to computing it via a formula, is one of its most significant aspects. With the exception of thermal meters, most other flowmeters measure volumetric flow. By placing the fluid in small compartments and noting how frequently each compartment is filled, the volumetric flow may be measured. The operation of positive displacement meters is analogous to the act of pouring milk from a huge container. Thus, the Coriolis flowmeter can be majorly used as a measuring device for gas and driving the growth of the market.


Technical disruption in gas meters

Gas meters are often battery-powered and require a strong connection to work in a flow. The weak signal in rural locations makes it difficult for individuals to establish a solid connection for meters, which is a typical issue with smart meters. The connection of gas meters must be powerful enough to transmit the readings to the energy provider. The smart meter industry may experience technical disruption that limits market expansion. Technical disruptions with the meters can stop the operation or may offer false results. Thus, technical disruptions are observed to act as a restraining factor for the market’s growth.


Deployment of smart meters in the market

Smart meters are comparatively easy to operate and considerably simpler to read. Even a simple phone app that analyzes the use and consumption of energy. Additionally, the majority of smart meters already include an in-home display that may be used to view additional anticipated gas and electricity bill amounts. A smart in-home display is capable of assisting users in understanding total energy usage over time. Such meters with advanced functions are observed to bring technological advancements in the market of gas meters. Smart meters also lower the chances of inaccuracy in the bills. As people become more dependent on technologically advanced meters to analyze and calculate energy consumption, the deployment of smart meters will increase.

Type Insights:

The basic meter type segment dominated the market with the largest market share in 2022. They expected to continue its dominance due to its simple use. The basic gas meter is analog in nature. A basic gas meter is easy in the installation process. The increasing residential sector in urban areas and the increasing use of gas for domestic and industrial use are propelling the growth of the market.

The smart meter type segment is expected to dominate the market with the largest market share in the forecast period. The rapid adoption of smart meters in the domestic and industrial sectors is likely to boost the segment’s growth.
