"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
The global microturbine market size was valued at nearly US$ 180 Mn in 2018 and is projected to reach more than US$ 360 Mn by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.23% in the forecast period.
Microturbines are very small turbines with unit sizes ranging from 1kW to 350kW. Microturbine has evolved from turbocharger technology mainly found in automotive and aerospace applications. Microturbines are fuel flexible, can function on either diesel or natural gas, and found its major application in industrial machines ranging from 30kW to 500kW and are much efficient and faster than gas turbines only if the system is integrated with a recuperator.
Microturbine has emerged as a breakthrough in CHP application because the exhaust heat can be recovered with a heat recovery boiler and overall efficiency can be increased as compared with convention natural gas turbines. In addition, the high efficiency-low carbon emission properties of gas-fired power plants boost the microturbine market share worldwide.
Power and heat cogeneration enables high-efficiency energy generation with significant main energy savings, up to 40%, which mainly contributes to the demand for this product, particularly from CHP facilities. The global demand for microturbine is dominated by developed nations along with the rising concern over energy efficiency and GHG emission acts as a major market growth factors in the forecast period.

Microturbines are small combustion turbine that typically runs on gaseous or liquid fuels to drive an electrical generator ranges in size from 30 to 330kW. The development of microturbine was accelerated by the similarity of design to a large turbine which provides the basis for engineering. The number of fuels used to run microturbine is natural gas, other gaseous fuel, waste heat from a thermal power plant, and liquid petroleum fuels (e.g., gasoline, kerosene, diesel, and heating oil). Ideally, microturbines are suited for distributed generation applications due to its flexibility in the connection method, the ability to provide reliable and stable power, and low emission compared to reciprocating engines. These products are intensively used in combined heat and power (CHP), combined cooling heating and power (CCHP), resource recovery, peak shave and baseload power, power only applications, and microgrid.
