ORC waste heat to power systems are significantly gaining prominence mainly across energy intensive industries due to their capability to reduce carbon footprints and support clean energy initiatives. The geothermal, biomass, and heat recovery industries are some of the key application areas where the ORC units are deployed. Growing investments in the development of new industrial centers along with the rising significance of energy optimization & management across process industries will encourage the adoption of these systems over the forthcoming years.

The ORC waste heat to power industry has witnessed sluggish growth in FY 2020 on account of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic across the globe. The non-utility industries are shut down in majority of the affected countries pertaining to strict lockdown protocols introduced by their respective governments. Moreover, the supply deficit of raw materials and labor has impacted the ORC waste heat to power equipment manufacturers moderately and has further affected the market statistics of the technology adversely. However, the industry is anticipated to bounce back in the first half of 2021, on account of easing of lockdown protocols coupled with release of various vaccinations to curb the spread of the virus.

The study features a detailed analysis of industry trends across the globe segmented on a regional & country basis. Moreover, the market forecasts & estimates are in line with the data represented by authorities including the International Energy Agency (IEA), Energy Information Administration (EIA), ASHRAE, government regulatory bodies, and company press releases.
