The global microturbine market size was USD 60.3 million in 2021 and is expected to grow from USD 66.1 million in 2022 to USD 129.4 million by 2029 at a growth rate of 10.1% in the 2022-2029 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with experiencing a lower-than-anticipated demand across all region compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -23.1% in 2020.

A microturbine is a tiny low combustion rotary engine that will be run on liquid and gaseous fuels. It’s a new distributed generation technology that's being employed for stationary energy generation applications. These turbines turn out each electricity and heat on a tiny low scale. It offers numerous benefits over alternative technologies like low emission, a tiny low variety of moving components, larger potency, compact size, and low electricity prices. These turbines have relatively low operations and maintenance prices.


COVID-19 Virus Affects Projects Related to Power Distribution Causing Disruption in Market Growth

The coronavirus has become a global health threat and has affected nearly 200 countries around the globe. There are various business sectors affected by the pandemic like the power generation sector, manufacturing sector, hospitality, and others.  The governments across several countries had to impose a lockdown. The majority of countries have imposed restrictions on travel across the countries or outside the countries which has severely interrupted the supply chain and trade activities were also stopped.

The new power projects were put on halt due to rising concern over the deadly virus and the majority of industries were not operational. This results in declining demand for microturbines and their parts & accessories. Many projects have the requirement of importing parts and equipment or turbines from other nations and as the government across several nations closed international borders, the supply of such products has been impacted. Thus, resulted in the delay of the projects. The investment has declined within the power sector thanks to the occurrence of the pandemic.
