Depleting conventional gas reserves coupled with fluctuating natural gas prices has led to increasing preference towards unconventional gases. In addition, abundant availability of technically recoverable unconventional gas reserves backed by technological advancement in the U.S. is further expected to boost the market growth.

Tight gas was the largest produced unconventional gas and accounted for over 44% of the total market in 2012. Shale gas is expected to be the fastest growing gas type at an estimated CAGR of 7% from 2013 to 2019. Shale gas success in U.S. has led other countries such as China to shift their focus towards developing shale gas. Global CBM production is expected to reach 4,256.8 bcf by 2019, U.S. and Canada CBM markets are nearing saturation and are expected to grow at a sluggish rate. However, CBM production in Asia Pacific, especially in Australia and Indonesia is expected to drive the overall market. Australia, owing to its huge CBM deposits, is expected to become one of the major CBM producers over the next six years.

U.S. emerged as the leading producer of unconventional gas and accounted for more than 70% of the total production in 2012. Large amount of shale gas reserves in the U.S. coupled with advanced production techniques adopted is expected to shift the U.S. from a net gas importer to a net gas exporter. Asia Pacific is expected to be fastest growing market at an estimated CAGR of 20.8% between 2013 and 2019. China has substantial technically recoverable shale gas reserves but presently there is no shale gas production and it is expected to commence by 2015.

Global Copper Indium Gallium Selenide Solar Cells Market Analysis, 2011 – 2019

Transparency Market Research Reports included a detailed market survey and analysis trends on “Copper Indium Gallium Selenide Solar Cells Market This report also includes more info about basic overview of the industry including definitions, applications and global market industry structure.

CIGS (Copper indium gallium selenide) is a semiconductor with direct bandgap which is used for solar cells manufacturing. The absorber of CIGS is placed on a glass or plastic backing, together with electrodes on back and front for current collection. Since the material powerfully absorbs sunlight and has a higher absorption coefficient, comparatively as compared to other semiconductor material, a thin film is required. The devices which are prepared with CIGS fit in the PV’s (photovoltaic’s) thin-film category.


CIGS has several advantages of being able to be deposited on flexible substrate materials which produce lightweight and highly flexible solar panels. Efficiency improvements have made copper indium gallium selenide a leader among alternative cell materials. 

Copper indium gallium selenide is one of the three conventional thin-film PV technologies, the other two being amorphous silicon and cadmium telluride. Unlike these materials, CIGS layers are quite thin to be flexible which thus allows their deposition on flexible substrates. Conversely, since all these technologies usually use deposition techniques which require high-temperature, the cells deposited on glass give the best performance. This performance is marginal in comparison with modern polysilicon based panels. Advancements in low-temperature CIGS cells deposition have erased the performance difference, even with flexible designs. 

CIGS has remarkably a high absorption coefficient greater than 105/cm for 1.5 eV and high energy photons. CIGS solar cells having efficiencies of approximately 20 percent have been claimed by both the “Zentrum für Sonnenenergie und Wasserstoff Forschung” (ZSW) and “National Renewable Energy Laboratory” (NREL), which is till date record for any thin film solar cell. The thin film PV market is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period. Hence, a strong incentive exists to improve and develop the deposition methods for such films which would allow increased throughput and low cost.

Global Gas Meters Market - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019

Transparency Market Research Reports included a detailed market survey and analysis trends on “Gas Meters Market”. This report also includes more info about basic overview of the industry including definitions, applications and global market industry structure.

Gas meters are the flow meters which measure the volume of fuel gases for example natural gas and propane.  Smart meters record a location’s gas consumption regularly and transfer these records to the utility control center regularly over a communication network. Useful information such as gas consumption, gas pressure can be captured for analysis in order to check status of the gas network.


The usage of smart meters will help improve leak detection and will also control water losses. Theft prevention is possibly more important for gas than for electricity because theft of gas is more dangerous than stealing electricity. Peak-demand reduction is one of the important drivers for electricity companies. However, since gas utilities have the elasticity to store up energy by changing the gas pressure in the pipes, peak demand is not much of a concern. Gases are much more difficult to measure when compared to liquids, since measured volumes are affected by the pressure and temperature. Gas meters measures a defined volume, despite of pressurized quality or quantity of the gas which flows through the meter. Gases are much more difficult to measure compared to liquids, since measured volumes are affected by the pressure and temperature.
