The gas utilities market covers all natural gas consumption, net of distribution or transmission losses, by end-users in the following categories: industrial (including use as a feedstock and autogeneration), commercial and public-sector organization, residential consumer, electric power generation (including combined heat and power but excluding autogeneration and heat plant), and other (including transport, agriculture, centralized heat plant, and other usage). Values are calculated from segment volumes and the average annual price of gas charged to end-users in each segment net of any applicable taxes. In some countries, synthetic gas (also called syngas, coal gas, city gas, etc) or biogas (generated from waste materials) may be used in a similar manner to natural gas, and has therefore been included in the market volume. To take into account the different energy content of such gases, all calculations were carried out in energy units, and then converted to bcf using the conversion factor for natural gas. Market shares were calculated as the total volume of gas sold to external end-users in all segments, divided by the total market volume. To avoid the risk of double-counting, gas volumes that were distributed to end-users on behalf of another retailer under third-party network access agreements are not included. Wholesale, trading, and storage volumes are excluded (except for Russia where both wholesale and retail volumes are included). For companies which operate in both gas and power sectors, any self-supply to their own gas-fired generation plant is excluded. All currency conversions are at constant average annual 2011 exchange rates.TABLE OF CONTENTSIntroduction 18What is this report about? 18Who is the target reader? 18How to use this report 18Definitions 18Group of Eight (G8) Gas Utilities Industry Outlook 19Gas Utilities in Canada 23Market Overview 23Market Data 24Market Segmentation 26Market outlook 29Five forces analysis 31Leading companies 38Macroeconomic indicators 49Gas Utilities in France 51Market Overview 51Market Data 52Market Segmentation 54Market outlook 57Five forces analysis 59Leading companies 65Macroeconomic indicators 80Gas Utilities in Germany 82Market Overview 82Market Data 83Market Segmentation 85Market outlook 88Five forces analysis 90Leading companies 96Macroeconomic indicators 105Gas Utilities in Italy 107Market Overview 107Market Data 108Market Segmentation 110Market outlook 113Five forces analysis 115Leading companies 121Macroeconomic indicators 137Gas Utilities in Japan 139Market Overview 139Market Data 140Market Segmentation 142Market outlook 145Five forces analysis 147Leading companies 153Macroeconomic indicators 162Gas Utilities in Russia 164Market Overview 164Market Data 165Market Segmentation 167Market outlook 170Five forces analysis 172Leading companies 179Macroeconomic indicators 189Gas Utilities in The United Kingdom 191Market Overview 191Market Data 192Market Segmentation 194Market outlook 197Five forces analysis 199Leading companies 205Macroeconomic indicators 221Gas Utilities in The United States 223Market Overview 223Market Data 224Market Segmentation 226Market outlook 229Five forces analysis 231Leading companies 239Macroeconomic indicators 251Appendix 253Methodology 253 LIST OF TABLES Table 1: G8 gas utilities industry, revenue($bn), 2007-16 19
