Rocky Mountains report


The Rocky Mountains, or Rockies, is the largest mountain system in North America. The area stretches 3,000 miles in straight-line distance from the northernmost part of western Canada down to New Mexico in the southwestern US.

Human population is not very dense in the Rockies, with an average of four people per square kilometer and few cities with over 50,000 people. However, the population did grow rapidly in the Rocky Mountain states between 1950 and 1990. The 40-year statewide increases in population range from 35% in Montana to about 150% in Utah and Colorado. The populations of several mountain towns and communities doubled in the 40 years 1972 through 2012.

Market activity

The industrial gas market in the Rockies is smaller than many others across the US but generated revenues of approximately $823.8m in 2022. This is up from $563m in 2012, indicating a compound annual growth rate of 3.88% per annum for the decade.
