Natural Gas Distribution in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Natural Gas Distribution in Canada

Despite steady growth in the consumption of natural gas, revenue for the Natural Gas Distribution industry has been volatile over the past five years. As gas prices have declined, government regulatory agencies have lowered the gas rates charged to consumers, cutting sharply into gas distribution revenue. However, the industry is expected to grow strongly over the next five years, although revenue is still expected to be below the industry's precessionary peak. Gas pipeline and processing facilities will undergo steady expansion, thereby stimulating exports and gas prices and gas consumption will also experience moderate growth over the period.

This industry distributes natural gas to manufacturers, businesses and consumers through utility gas pipelines. Industry establishments are also composed of natural gas marketers, which purchase and sell natural gas on wholesale markets. This industry does not include long-distance gas transportation operators.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
