DALLAS, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The development of meter data management applications has led to better operational functioning of utilities. With the introduction of a centralized management system, the trend of retaining data in each department has almost come to an end. Meter data management applications provide a centralized platform for every department to share its information in an organized manner, leading to an increase in productivity and a reduction in cost. This leads to the more collaborative functioning of the organization, which helps it understand the customer better and enhance its services. At present, there is low adoption of meter data management applications in the market; however, the adoption is expected to increase extensively during the forecast period, thereby having a positive impact on the growth of the Global Gas Meter market.
Analysts forecast the Global Gas Meter market will grow at a CAGR of 9.33 percent over the period 2014-2018. According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing demand for smart gas meters. The ability of smart gas meters to provide an exact consumption volume or percentage has helped end-users plan their consumption and thus save money. This has led to increased demand for smart meters in the Residential, Commercial, and Industrial sectors.
The Global Gas Meter market can be segmented into two product segments: Basic Gas Meter and Smart Gas Meter.

Global Level Sensing and Measurement Market 2014-2018: Level sensors are used to measure the level of a liquid or fluidized solids contained inside a tank, or any other container capable of holding liquids and solids. Level sensors are of two types: point level sensors and continuous level sensors. A point level sensor provides a reading of the media level at a specific point whereas a continuous level sensor provides a continuous reading of the media level inside the container. Level sensors are divided into two technological segments: Electronic Process Level Measurement and Mechanical Process Level Measurement. The Global Level Sensing and Measurement market is witnessing the increase in transition to electronic level sensors from mechanical level sensors.
Analysts forecast the Global Level Sensing and Measurement market will grow at a CAGR of 6.98 percent over the period 2014-2018.
Global Inventory Tank Gauging Market 2014-2018: Inventory tank gauging instruments are used to measure the level of a liquid contained inside a tank. There are two methods of tank gauging: volume based tank gauging and mass based tank gauging. Inventory Tank Gauging instruments are of two types: point level instruments and continuous level instruments. A point level instrument provides a reading of the liquid level at a specific point whereas a continuous level instrument provides a continuous reading of the liquid level inside a tank. Inventory tank gauging instruments are divided into two technological segments: Electronic Inventory Tank Gauging Instruments and Mechanical Inventory Tank Gauging Instruments.
Analysts forecast the Global Inventory Tank Gauging market will grow at a CAGR of 5.22 percent over the period 2014-2018.
