The global steam turbine market size is expected to reach USD 19.5 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 2.3% from 2022 to 2030. The increasing deployment of combined heat and power (CHP) units in industrial and utility applications will boost market growth. Steam engines form an integral part of thermal power plants operating across the world. However, with increasing environmental concerns, the focus has been shifted from coal-fired thermal power stations to clean energy sources, including natural gas, fuel cells, and renewable energy generation plants.
The growth of Industrial segment of the market can be attributed to the increased industrial activities across the world. Steam turbines are employed in industrial applications in the form of CHP units. These units offer better efficiency than single units and produce outputs in multiple ways. Steam turbines are widely used for CHP applications in Europe. Extraction-condensing type steam turbines are used in large industrial CHP applications. These turbines are deployed in combined-cycle plants wherein they extract a portion of the steam for the process.
The increasing installations of thermal power generation units in China and Southeast Asian countries are expected to fuel the growth of the market in coming years due to increase in energy demand. China, being rich in coal reserves, still focuses on coal-fired power plants despite their hazardous impact on the environment. In India, the market is anticipated to witness promising growth once the internal issues related to coal reserves in the country get resolved.
The global spread of the COVID-19 disrupted supply chains and sharply curtailed demand for commodities worldwide. The restrictions imposed on the supply and transportation owing to slowing down or halting of operations of factories due to partial or complete lockdowns in different countries to contain the spread of coronavirus negatively impacted the growth of the market worldwide.
