Market Overview

The power generation EPC market in the Philippines is expected to register a CAGR of over 5% in the forecast period, 2020-2025. Factor, such as the increasing energy demand, are likely to drive the Philippines power generation EPC market in the forecast period. However, factors, such as complexity and expensive nature of coal-fired and natural-gas-fired power plants, coupled with delays in projects, are expected to have a negative impact on the market studied.

  • The conventional thermal power segment held a significant market share in 2018, and it is likely to dominate the market in the forecast period.
  • The Philippines government has planned to phase out its coal usage by 2040 and focus more on energy production from natural gas and renewable. This, in turn, is expected to create several opportunities for the power generation EPC companies in the near future.
  • The upcoming and ongoing projects of power plants are likely to drive the power EPC generation market in the Philippines, during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Conventional Thermal Power Expected to Dominate the Market

  • Conventional thermal power is the power that is generated through fossil-fuel sources, such as coal, natural gas, and oil. In 2018, approximately more than 75% of the electricity generated in the Philippines had been from conventional thermal power.
  • Out of the various sources of generating conventional thermal power, the majority of energy came from coal in 2018. Coal contributed approximately 68% to the conventional thermal power electricity generation, producing 51932 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity in 2018.
  • In 2019, SAN Buenaventura Power Ltd (SBPL) commissioned its new 500 megawatts (MW) coal-fired power station. The San Buenaventura Power Plant was the first supercritical generation plant in the country. The plant is located in Quezon, and supply power to the Luzon grid. It is owned by SAN Buenaventura Power Ltd (SBPL), a partnership between Meralco PowerGen Corp. and New Growth BV. Meralco is the largest electric distribution company in the Philippines, while New Growth BV is a subsidiary of Thailand-based Electricity Generating Public Co. Work began on the San Buenaventura coal-fired plant in late 2015. Daelim Industrial handled engineering, procurement, and construction oversight, while Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems supplied the boiler, steam turbine, and generator for the facility.
  • In 2017 Department of Energy (DOE) of the Philippines approved the construction of three new coal-fired power plants in Pagbilao province. These projects include Tangkawayan-1000 megawatts (MW), Atimonan-1200 megawatts (MW), and Ibabang-600 megawatts (MW), in Pagbilao municipality.
  • Therefore, from the above points it is evident that conventional thermal power is likely to dominate the Philippines power generation EPC market in the forecast period.

Upcoming and Ongoing Power Plant Projects to Drive the Market

  • In 2018, the total electricity generation from the various sources in the power sector in the Philippines was 99765 gigawatt-hours (GWh). Energy sources contributing to the country's energy generation include coal, natural gas, wind, hydro, geothermal, biofuels, and solar energy.
  • In 2018, the total installed capacity of the power generation sector was 23815 megawatts (MW), which included all conventional thermal, hydro, and non-hydro renewable. This number was higher than the total installed capacity of power generation in 2017, 22728 megawatt (MW).
  • In October 2019, Meralco signs an EPC contract with Chinese firm SUMEC Complete Equipment and Engineering Co. Ltd for building its 50 megawatts (MW) of a solar power plant in Bulacan Province, Philippines.
  • In 2019, SN AboitizPower-Magat (SNAP-Magat), a joint venture between SN Power of Norway and AboitizPower completed the construction of its pilot project of floating power solar facility. SNAP partnered with Ocean Sun, a Norweign floating solar technology provider. Currently, the project is in its test run and if successful, the company is expected to install several floating solar facility to increase country's power generating capacity.
  • Hence, owing to the above points, upcoming and ongoing projects are likely going to drive the Philippines power generation EPC market in the forecast period.
