LONDON, April 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact:

According to The Business Research Company's natural gas market report, players in the liquefied natural gas market are working on improving technologies for better gas distribution and a reduced chance of contamination and losses through leakage. Companies in the natural gas distribution industry are investing in robotic wireless in-pipe leak detection systems for faster repair of leakages and to avoid discharge of contaminants in the water system. Traditional detection systems are often slow and not accurate in detecting harmful contaminants. This robotic technology can detect leaks at a faster pace and with high accuracy. When a leak is encountered in the distribution process, gas flow distorts the membrane. This pulls the robot which is placed inside the pipe slightly toward the leak site and is detected by sensors, and the information is sent to the central system. This technology provides reliable results and reduced amount of data to be processed in detection to plug gas leakage. Some companies providing the robotic leak detection technology are SMP robotics, AquaNav, AquaPea, PipeGuard, and PipeFish.

The natural gas distribution market is fairly fragmented, with a large number of small players. The top ten competitors in the market made up to 32.4% of the total market in 2019. Major players in the natural gas distribution industry include PJSC Gazprom, Uniper SE, Naturgy Energy Group S.A., Centrica plc, Engie S.A. and others.
