Research and Markets: World Gas Meter Report Ed. 7 2009 - The Complete Database & Directory on the World Gas Meter

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "World Gas Meter Report Ed 7 2009, Database & Directory" report to their offering.

The gas meter market has been following the electricity meter trend to AMR in the US for some years and is increasingly doing the same in Europe, but at a much slower pace. With a new consciousness towards energy efficiency, driven partly by fears about the environment and partly by concern about energy security, gas utilities are now considering advanced metering, jumping from AMR one way to AMI two way communication. The UK is the first country to announce a national roll-out of advanced electricity and gas meters, totalling an enormous deployment of 49 million meters. We predict that gas metering will follow the trend to advanced metering more widely in the next few years.

In this new edition of the Water Meter Report we have expanded the coverage of the marketing profiles to review 51 countries in detail, an expansion from 22 countries in the previous report. The countries contained are (new countries underlined): (Europe & CIS) Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, UK; Asia (Pacific) Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam; (South America) Argentina, Brazil, Chile; (North America) Canada, Mexico, USA, (Middle East) Iran: (Africa) Egypt, South Africa.

The market is now broken down in value and volume by user segment, C&I and residential. The report also contains a table of population, numbers of households and the installed base of utility water meters in all countries.

A valuable addition to the water market research report is the inclusion of sub-meters, which we have not covered before.

The report includes a discussion of the market drivers. Types of water meter and country practices for type approval are outlined. The water utility sector is outlined. Advanced metering is discussed, with reference to the overlap of AMR and AMI.
