Market Overview

The global gas turbine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period of 2021-2026. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown a huge impact on power generation, with decreasing in power demand of around 5% globally. However, as compared to other combustion-based power generation technologies, the gas turbine market is expected to grow in post-pandemic due to lower operating costs, lower emissions, and high-power density. Increasing demand for electricity across the globe and advancement in the technologies leading to an increase in shale gas production and various countries opting for generation of power through gas-fired plants is likely to drive the global gas turbine market. Increasing renewable energy deployments, especially in countries like the United States, China, Brazil, and India, is expected to hinder the growth of the gas turbine market.

  • In power generation plants, turbines with a capacity of 120 MW are generally used. With the increasing demand for electricity, gas-fired powered plants turbines with a capacity above 120 MW will dominate the market in the forecast period.
  • Rise in demand for natural gas-fired plants and global initiatives across the countries for the reduction in emission of carbon dioxide, based on the technology, the combined cycle segment would dominate the market by 2030, due to its overall electrical efficiency typically ranging from 50-60% compared to open cycle around 33%.
  • As of 2021, the Asia-Pacific region is dominating the global gas turbine market with an increasing number of gas-fired power plants and rapid development in oil and gas and industrial activities across the region.

Key Market Trends

Increasing demand in the power generation through natural gas-fired power plants

  • In the year 2020, the electricity generated by natural gas amounted to 6268.1TWh. On the note of environmental impact, many countries such as the United States, China, Germany, India are opting for power generation through natural gas-fired power plants.
  • Setting up nuclear-based power plants requires a lot of investments and includes operational risks associated with safety concerns. Power generation through natural gas-fired will be the safest option. This will in turn, culminate in the increase in the demand for gas turbines in the global market.
  • As of 2020, Global carbon dioxide emissions accounted for 32284.1 million tonnes, which is rapidly increasing day-to-day. Countries like Japan, Russia, Myanmar, Germany are imposing taxes on power plants in order to reduce emissions. This will improve the adoption of gas-fired power plants across the world.
  • Increasing trend of distributed power generation and replacement of phased out nuclear & coal plants are expected to provide opportunities for the expansion of the global gas turbine market during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific region to Dominate the Market

  • Rapid industrialization in the countries like India, China, Japan, Myanmar, and increasing urbanization are driving an ever-growing power demand in this region, which is culminating in the development of numerous power generation projects.
  • Indian power sector is dominated by coal-based generation, accounting for 61.3% of the total installed capacity in June 2021. The country has the huge potential of renewable energy and gas-based power generation for decarbonization and to meet the targets as per the Paris Agreement.
  • In 2021, JERA, a joint venture between TEPCO FP and Chubu Electric Power Company has submitted a plan to Government of Japan to add two gas-fired units at the Chita Thermal Power Station, the addition includes two new combined cycle units that will be powered by liquefied natural gas.
  • As of October 2020, according to China Electricity Council, the country has gas-fired power generation capacity of 97 GW, out of 2,100 GW total installed generating capacity. Nevertheless, gas-fired power capacity could see faster growth compared to recent years, likely adding 40 to 50 GW of new capacity by 2025.
  • Moreover, Countries like Australia, Japan, Malaysia, with a growing social consensus against nuclear power, will prospect the utilization of gas turbines during the forecast period.
