Rising need to minimize losses during transmission and distribution of gas is another key factor driving the gas meters market. This requires efficient transportation of gas to safeguard energy security in the long run. In this scenario, deploying gas meters at various points in the transmission infrastructure could record the volume of gas flow and evaluate the difference between the gas thrust at the start to gas retrieved at the end. Thus, adoption of measures to minimize losses and to record the volume of gas flow could favor the sales of gas meters in the future.
