The global industrial gas turbine market size was valued at USD 10.45 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 10.70 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

An industrial gas turbine is a combustion engine that is used to generate mechanical energy from various fuels such as natural gas or liquid fuels. This mechanical energy is used to drive an integrated generator that produces electrical energy. Traditional gas-fired and oil-fired steam power plants have been replaced by very efficient combined-cycle power plants using gas turbines for the combustion of gas or oil. Increasing demand for electricity across the globe, along with high demand for clean energy, are the major factors that are expected to propel the global market growth from 2019 to 2027.

COVID-19 Pandemic Affects Heavily On Power Projects

The coronavirus (Covid-19) was first identified in China’s Hubei province in December 2019 and has since become a global health threat, affecting more than 150 countries. The power sector is among the most widely affected domains and the lockdowns have added to the adverse effect of the pandemic. The lockdowns have caused delays in power projects due to supply chain disruptions, unavailability of human resources, and issues in project financing. Recently, the Myanmar power plant projects which initially scheduled for completion by this summer were delayed due to COVID-19. The Deputy Minister for Electricity and Energy (MOEE) said three imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) power projects and a gas power project are still not operational because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to travel restrictions and commercial flight bans, the power generation equipment, and the machinery, and experts required to install it were unable to reach Myanmar by the original deadlines.

The U.S. power plant operators continue to change procedures at their facilities, including pushing back scheduled maintenance due to lockdowns and quarantines associated with the coronavirus pandemic. The changes are affecting companies such as General Electric (GE) and Siemens, which are major manufacturers of the industrial gas turbine as well as service providers to power plants, at a time when these global companies already are taking a revenue hit due to COVID-19.

Moreover, these countries have evolved and restructured their manufacturing policies and procedures to attract investments and enable growth. Industrialization will certainly boost the automation process to ease operations and improve the overall efficiency of production. Hence, it can be concluded that the growth of the industrial sector, especially in the emerging economies, will create an opportunity for the global market.           


Gas Turbine Technology Reduces Greenhouse Emissions

Conventional coal-fired power plants have been known to emit large amounts of toxic gases,  and contribute majorly to global warming. For example, the International Energy Agency’s Global Energy and CO2 Status Report of 2018 finds that coal-fired power generating plants were the largest contributor to emissions in 2018, increasing at a rate of 2.9% from 2017. Moreover, the report also states that 30% of global CO2 emissions in 2018 were as a result of coal-generated electricity. Thus, the urgency to develop cleaner techniques to generate electricity is expected to ramp up the demand for these gas turbines in the coming decade.

The primary fuel of gas turbines, natural gas, contains very little sulfur, meaning that virtually no sulfur dioxide is emitted. CO2 emission from gas turbines burning natural gas is also very low–0.37 kilograms of CO2 per kWh of electricity generated. This compares to 1.01 kg/kWh for lignite and 0.8 kg/kWh for hard coal.

Increasing Demand for Electricity will Create a Subsequent Demand for Gas Turbines

High population growth across the globe, flourishing industrial sector, and growth in infrastructure development activities are all leading to a huge rise in demand for electricity. As the demand for electricity increases, several countries across the world are increasing their electricity generation capacity by installing new plants or expanding the capacity of the existing one. Due to stringent government norms regarding greenhouse gas emissions, companies are more inclined towards the adoption of industrial gas turbine systems. These factors will augment the growth of the global market over the given industry forecast period.


Volatility in Natural Gas Prices May Hinder Market Growth

Natural gas prices are affected by actions that can possibly disrupt the supply of natural gas. Geopolitical tensions are adisruptive factor that causes uncertainty about the supply or demand for natural gas. This can lead to higher volatility in the prices of gas. The cost of natural gas in the U.S. has fallen drastically as a result of shale gas exploitation, but elsewhere in the world, the cost remains relatively high. Most of the countries in the Middle East region account for a significant share of natural gas reserves. It is a highly unstable region due to political and cultural issues. Moreover, from the past few months, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for natural gas decreased significantly. Thus the prices of natural gas also dropped, which creates a negative impact on market growth.
