Global gas-generator set (genset) market to reach $6 billion in 2020, finds new report

Driven by recent discoveries of gas reserves in several countries, the global gas-generator set (genset) market is forecast to increase from $3.3 billion in 2013 to $6 billion in 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.9%.

According to the latest report, the North American region has the highest share of the global gas-genset market, with 33%, followed by Latin America and Asia-Pacific, with respective shares of 30% and 20%.

The US will continue to be the dominant player during the forecast period, since the discovery of shale gas reserves in the country, along with its commercial exploitation of these reserves, have helped lower gas prices and therefore further driven the market for gas-gensets.

Analyst of this report, says: “From a long-term perspective, gas-gensets are more economical compared to diesel-gensets, but even so, they are still not the preferable option for all end consumers. Global consumers need to be made more aware of the benefits of using gas-gensets, including the fact that they help in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, governments need to take more assertive action in terms of infrastructural development for gas networks.”

Another key market driver is the fact that many countries have implemented strict emission norms for regulating the level of harmful emissions from diesel-gensets, which will boost the adoption of gas-gensets.

However, most countries, both developed and developing, do not have proper gas infrastructure. As a result, even if gas is available in a particular country, it cannot be transported to distant locations due to the absence of gas pipelines. Furthermore, the investment required for laying pipelines is also high.

Due to these limiting factors, end consumers often find it relatively more expensive to opt for gas-gensets, which could therefore restrict any further market growth.

This report gives detailed information on the gas generator market, focusing on the US, the UK, India, Brazil, China and Nigeria. Drivers, restraints, revenue forecast, segmentation of revenue by voltage level, end user segmentation and market share analysis are covered at the country level.

The flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) market to reach $3.7 billion by 2020, finds new report

The flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) market will witness a varying level of growth over the coming years, increasing from $2.8 billion in 2012 to a peak of $4.3 billion by 2016, before reaching $3.7 billion by 2020.

According to the latest report, the expected increase in the FGD market value will be driven primarily by high coal dependency, increasing awareness of air pollution and stringent emissions regulations, which will boost the number of FGD system installations over the coming years.

China and the US will be the main contributors towards the FGD market growth, with China in particular representing 65.5% of global installations between 2013 and 2020 – almost double the rest of the world’s installations, at 34.5%.

Analyst of this report says: “The low quality and high sulfur content of the coal found in China has made the country’s sulfur emissions very high; however, with emissions regulations in place, FGD system installations have received a favorable push in the country, and China is now one of the largest markets for this equipment in the world.

“Meanwhile, as the level of sulfur emissions from power plants in the US reached around 15.73 million tons in 1990, policies and regulations were formed to reduce not only these emissions, but also other pollutants, such as carbon dioxide, particulates and mercury. As with China, the US FGD systems market has greatly benefited from the resulting surge in demand for equipment used in reducing air pollution.”

However, a number of barriers will prevent a more steady increase in FGD market value over the coming years. These include the high cost of FGD systems, along with the impact of alternative sources of energy.

Analyst continues: “Developed and developing countries are increasingly investing in alternative fuels, such as wind, solar, hydro, biomass and nuclear, in order to meet the rising demands for electricity.

“We expect these energy sources to pose a significant threat to the FGD market in the long term, as reductions in the share of fossil fuels for electricity generation will result directly in fewer sales of the FGD equipment needed to control emissions from fossil fuel power plants,” the analyst concludes.

Offshore Wind Power Expected to Contribute 29% of Total Operations and Maintenance Market by 2020, Finds New Report

In 2012, global wind power capacity reached 281 Gigawatts (GW), with an addition of 44 GW over the year. Offshore wind power capacity also grew at pace, with 1.3 GW of installations in 2012. More than 187 GW of wind power capacity was added during the period 2008 to 2012, which has drastically increased Operations and Maintenance (O&M) expenditure, from $3.5 billion in 2008 to $7.3 billion in 2012, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.6%. The increasing age of wind turbines and the failure of components such as blades and gearboxes are the major reasons for the increasing O&M costs in the wind industry.

The O&M market’s growth is currently restrained by a lack of skilled manpower, and the cost of logistics. However, the increase in the wind power O&M market is leading to an increase in companies providing specialized wind turbine O&M services, which in turn is decreasing the cost of O&M services. Considering the above factors, the wind power O&M market is expected to reach $19 billion by 2020.

Offshore wind accounted for 8% of the total wind O&M market in 2012, with a market size of $0.55 billion. Offshore wind attracts higher O&M costs in comparison to onshore wind. Higher turbine maintenance, high logistics costs and a lack of skilled manpower make offshore wind services more challenging than the onshore equivalent. Although onshore wind also faces logistics and manpower issues, the impact of these factors on the offshore segment is higher. It is estimated that revenues from the offshore wind O&M market segment will continue to grow to reach a market size of $5.6 billion, equating to a 29% share of the total wind power O&M market in 2020.

The UK, Germany and China will be largest contributors to the offshore wind power O&M market, with contributions of $1.7 billion, $0.632 billion and $0.628 billion respectively.
