Reciprocating Power Generating Engine Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Fuel (Gas, Diesel, Dual fuel, Others), By Rated Power (Below 2MW, 2MW - 5MW, Above 5MW), By Application (Industrial, CHP, Energy & Utility, Landfill & Biogas, Others), and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100810 | Status : Ongoing



Reciprocating power-generating engine is a heat-generating engine that uses one or more reciprocating pistons in order to convert pressure into rotatory motion. This provides at relatively low cost, which makes it an instrumental part of ensuring a reliable and safe flow of power to the grid. The main function of a reciprocating power engine is to provide incremental peaking power to the electric grid during high-demand periods, mitigating the ups and downs of solar, wind and other variable-output generating sources, and to ensure quick-start backup generation in the event of regional or local grid outages.

The market is highly driven by rapid investments toward cogeneration technology and increasing construction activities coupled with low diesel prices. Additionally, growing demand for reliable, uninterruptable and cost-effective systems for electricity generation across industrial establishments is expected to fuel the reciprocating power-generating engine market growth

The reciprocating power-generating engine market is categorized by gas-fired, diesel-fired, and dual-fired. Among which gas-fired and diesel-fired is highly used among various industries and the service sector. The above 5MW rated power is expected to grow due to ongoing government plans to electrify rural and remote areas along with rapid industrialization across the emerging economies.

High power requirement across the industries due to increasing construction activities and infrastructural development along with growing utility sector will boost the reciprocating power-generating engine market. Additionally, the growing utilization of CHP technology along with increasing investments toward renewable capacity is expected to be favorable for industry growth.

The power industry is increasingly in need of flexible, efficient electricity generation and reciprocating engine generators are compatible with flexible peaking and intermediate generation needs. They offer competitive heat rates and multi-shaft reliability for energy markets, as well as industry-leading ramp rates and start-up times for ancillary services markets. Additionally, they have the lowest full load heat rate and is even more efficient in terms of the part-load operation. However, the reciprocating power-generating engine incurs high maintenance cost. They even need to be cooled, even if the heat recovered is not reusable along with high levels of low-frequency noise.

Key Players Covered

Some of the major companies that are present in reciprocating power-generating engine market are Yanmar, Wartsila, DEUTZ AG, Mitsubishi, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Escorts Group, MAN Energy Solutions, Ashok Leyland, John Deere, Kohler Power, Caterpillar, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, JCB Inc., Briggs & Stratton, Cummins and Kirloskar Oil Engines Limited.
