Market Trends of ASEAN Power EPC Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the ASEAN Power EPC Market according to our research experts:

Renewables Power Source to Witness Significant Growth

  • The ASEAN is one of the fastest-growing regions globally in terms of electricity demand. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the electricity demand has grown significantly by more than 6% annually over the past 20 years on average. Of the region's ten countries, the four largest by electricity consumption, Indonesia (26%), Viet Nam (22%), Thailand (19%), and Malaysia (15%), make up more than 80% of the total demand in the region.
  • To have clean and efficient power sources, the ASEAN has set an ambitious target of securing 23% of its primary energy from renewable sources and a 35% share in installed capacity by 2025. These efforts, in turn, are expected to provide a significant boost to the ASEAN power EPC market under renewable sources.
  • In 2021, Vietnam's total installed wind energy capacity has reached about 4.11 GW. Further, the Vietnamese government has set an accelerating target to reach 11.80 GW by 2025, which is anticipated to boost the power generation EPC market in the country.
  • Likewise, the favorable government policies introduced by the Malaysian government to ramp up the renewable power share across the country are likely to increase the power EPC market. Moreover, the net metering 3.0 program introduced by the country to encourage the deployment of solar power systems in the residential and commercial sectors is expected to increase the demand for the power EPC market.
  • In Thailand, with 7,902 MW in 2015 and 11,885 MW in 2021, the country's cumulative installed renewable energy capacity has seen massive developments. Further, with the upcoming projects, the share of renewable energy in power generation is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
  • Furthermore, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) plans to build 2.7 GW of floating solar power capacity on the dam reservoirs by 2037. These goals are likely to generate plenty of opportunities to drive the EPC market in the future.
  • Hence, based on the above-mentioned factors, the renewable power source segment is expected to see considerable growth during the forecast period.

Indonesia to Dominate the Market

  • Indonesia is one of the largest economies in the ASEAN region. The country's electricity sector relies primarily on fossil fuels for electricity generation, particularly lignite and bituminous coal. Although not the same as coal, natural gas is also likely to remain an integral part of the country's energy mix. In 2021, the total electricity generation capacity in Indonesia reached 74GW witnessing a 2% rise from 72.8 GW in 2020, in which the majority of the capacity is from fossil fuels.
  • The Indonesian Government introduced a new Electricity Procurement Plan (RUPTL), under which the country aims to add 4.7 GW of solar power capacity by 2030 and is planning to source 51.6% of its added power capacity from renewable sources under a new masterplan. Such ambitious plans are expected to see massive developments in the country's power EPC market in the renewable sector.
  • Moreover, in 2021, the country has invested USD 1.4 billion in the renewable energy sector, increasing 3% from USD 1.36 billion in 2020. Further, according to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, the country is targeting to double the investment values in renewable energy to 3 billion U.S. dollars in 2022. Hence, the rising investment trend in the renewable energy sector across Indonesia is anticipated to increase the power EPC market growth in the coming years.
  • The Indonesian Government is also planning to phase out coal power plants with nuclear reactors to decrease carbon emissions and increase the power generation from nuclear power plants. However, the country has immense potential for generating nuclear energy across the region compared to any other country in the ASEAN region.
  • Hence, based on the above-mentioned factors, Indonesia is expected to dominate the ASEAN power EPC market during the forecast period.
