/PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Global Gasification Trends 2013 - 2050; The Adoption of Piped Natural Gas Around the World
This report and database is designed to help strategists and marketers by bringing together a number of variables that have been traditional metrics for forecasting market trends, each of which on their own tend to significantly underestimate market trends, but taken together provide a far more robust vision of the future for piped natural gas. The parameters we examine are population growth, household size trends and market penetration for natural gas.
Our approach is proven by comparing our analysis from a 1990 base to recorded market data—if we were forecasting in 1990 on this basis, we would have been very close to reality.
The 77 page overview, which includes 63 figures and tables, provides background to major markets and explains our approach in detail. The Excel File which is the core of the product accompanies provides forecast growth in terms of household connections for all countries with natural gas distribution networks in 2013. GGT is a companion product to our 2012 title "Electrification Trends 2012 - 2050"
