Global Smart Gas Meters Market: Overview

Benefits of smart gas meters

Smart gas meters are the next generation meters for measuring gas consumption. It uses a secure communication network using radio frequency to send the gas usage wirelessly and automatically to the gas supplier. Some of the other benefits of smart gas meters are high billing accuracy along with greater analysis of gas usage and higher safety. Smart gas meters prevent gas leaks and fires by detecting defective appliances, carbon monoxide leaks, gas leaks, and faulty wiring, which make the smart gas meter installation a safety measure. Such benefits will lead to the expansion of the global smart gas meters market at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period.

Development of PAYG meters

Growing technologies and the rise in the consumption of gas across the world have led to many inventions in the gas sector. One such innovation is PAYG meters, also known as prepayment meters or credit meters, which allow the users to pay for gas before using the gas, just like prepaid mobile phones. The payment can be made via a token or a smartcard. PAYG gas meters enable customers to monitor gas usage and expenses. The installation of such prepaid gas meters at households will assure access to high-quality gas, and with the PAYG system, gas suppliers will be assured of payment through convenient mobile money services, thus serving as an incentive to expand gas infrastructure and network. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
