Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Market Overview

Microturbines are new distributed generation technology that is used for stationary energy generation applications. These turbines can produce both heat and electricity on a relatively small scale. A microturbine runs on various types of fuels including biogas, diesel, natural gas, alcohol, hydrogen, and LPG.  It can generate power from 25 kW to 1000 kW and can be used in commercial, residential, and industrial sectors. The majority of the applications of microturbines are in the industrial (mining, oil & gas, wastewater plants, and land rigs) and commercial sector (hotels, office buildings, schools, sports centers, supermarkets, swimming pools, and hospitals) due to the benefits they offer.

The global microturbine systems market is estimated to account for US$ 1,239.7 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

Market Dynamics- Drivers

  1. Favorable government regulations are expected to drive growth of the global microturbine systems market during the forecast period

Renewable energy resources have very little impact on the environment and are present in abundance. However, current technologies cannot adequately tap and utilize renewable sources to generate power. On the contrary, non-renewable sources of energy such as oil & gas, and coal-fired power plants although contribute to most of the power generation, produce the environment significantly. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, global carbon dioxide emissions were over 30 billion metric tons in 2010 and were expected to reach over 35 billion metric tons by 2020.  This, in turn, has increased the development of alternate energy generation techniques including microturbines. Thus, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global microturbine systems market during the forecast period.

  1. Few movable parts restricting overhaul cost supplemented with numerous applications is expected to propel the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period

Microturbine systems have very few movable parts, which leads to low operation and maintenance costs comparative to reciprocating and other substitute energy generating systems. Engine-based generators comprised of hundreds of moving parts that require scheduled overhaul, which in turn, impact energy production and increasing maintenance costs. Once installed, microturbine systems can run up to 5,000 hours to 8,000 hours. As a result, microturbines are preferred in several energy-intensive industries as a secondary and primary source as well. Thus, these factors are expected to propel the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period.

Statistics:

North America held dominant position in the global microturbine systems market in 2019, accounting for 45.9% share in terms of value, followed by Europe, Asia- Pacific and RoW respectively.

Market Dynamics- Restraints

  1. Volatile fuel prices are expected to hamper the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period

Currently, natural gas is widely used in microturbines as fuel. Since the natural gas price is fluctuating constantly, it poses threat to microturbine manufacturers. Furthermore, the energy generated by microturbines and reciprocating engines incurs comparatively the same cost. However, advanced supercritical CO2 systems that generate energy at a lower cost are expected to offset the challenge with minimal utilization of natural gas and adequate energy generation. Hence, these factors are expected to hamper the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period.

  1. High level of competition from emerging entrant and established players is expected to hinder the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period

Emerging market players are posing major competition to existing market players. New entrants are offering microturbine systems at a competitive cost as compared to major manufacturers, which in turn, is hindering the market share of key players. Furthermore, market players are struggling to expand their presence due to the presence of various regional players. Hence, these factors are expected to hinder the global microturbine systems market growth over the forecast period.

A microturbine is a combustion turbine that runs on gas fuel to power an electric generator. A microturbine uses natural gases and petroleum fuels such as diesel, kerosene, and etc. This type of turbine is used to generate power on small scale. Microturbines are capable of generating energy from 25 KW to 1000 KW. These types of turbines are compact, lightweight, and cost-effective and have minimal moving parts as compared to the traditional methods. This type of turbine is used in various applications such as combined heat and power (CHP), standby power, combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) and others. The majority of the applications of microturbines are in the industrial (mining, oil & gas, wastewater plants, and land rigs) and commercial sector (hotels, office buildings, schools, sports centers, supermarkets, swimming pools, and hospitals).

Market Dynamics

Increasing focus on the generation of clean energy is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. During the last decade, there has been an increased focus on the generation of clean energy from unpolluted sources. Many climate-energy agreements such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (1992), Kyoto Protocol (1997) have been enacted in response to the detrimental effects of global warming. The use of conventional fuel such as crude oil, natural gas contributes to the high amount of emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. These micro turbines release a small number of gases in terms of concentration of nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide as compared to fossil fuels. Several countries are phasing out nuclear plants and focused on achieving efficiency targets and emphasis on the use of clean energy that causes no damage to the environment. For instance, according to International Energy Outlook 2017, the world’s natural gas producers are expected to increase supply by 43.2% from2015 to 2039. Further, In Russia, the production of natural gases is expected to increase owing to the development of resources in the country’s eastern and arctic region.

Rising awareness related to clean energy can provide major business opportunities in the global microturbine systems market. The rising trend of clean energy has compelled the reduction of greenhouse gases and other emissions. Natural gas-fired power plants offer high-efficiency low-carbon characteristics, which can increase the demand for microturbine systems globally. Cogeneration of power and heat allow obtaining high-efficiency energy generation with significant primary energy savings. Key companies in the market can capitalize on such lucrative opportunities and gain a competitive advantage in the market.
