The Gas Pipeline Transportation industry has grown strongly during the past five years, and the construction of new natural gas pipelines from the Marcellus Shale Basin has led to substantial growth in the amount of natural gas that requires transporting. Increased supply has maintained low gas prices, encouraging higher demand. In the five years to 2020, electricity generation operators will continue to demand natural gas at higher volumes, as they decrease their dependence on imported oil, and natural gas prices remain near historic lows. Natural gas extraction operators will also expand production in shale basins during this time period, which will lead to continued growth in the amount of gas that needs to be transported.
This industry transports natural gas from processing plants to local distribution systems using pipelines. This industry does not include the recovery of natural gas from wells or the processing of natural gas.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
