However, complex designing, high cost and large footprint makes these systems unsuitable for small & medium scale applications.

Steam Turbine Market, By Exhaust

Ongoing investments toward new generating capacity additions to meet the ever rising electricity demand from industries will drive the condensing steam turbine market. Growing penetration of cogeneration systems coupled with rapid industrialization across developing economies are some of the other key underlying factors, which will boost the product demand.

Non-condensing steam turbine market share is anticipated to witness growth over 1% by 2024. Ease of installation and its ability to withstand temperature fluctuations are some of the prominent factors that will drive the industry growth. These systems offer steam at a desired pressure which makes them suitable for processing industries.

Steam Turbine Market, By Fuel

Biomass in 2017, accounted for over 4% of global market share. The growing efforts toward reducing carbon footprint coupled with supportive regulatory environment will enhance the industry outlook. Growing deployment of captive power generation and combined heat & power systems will further complement the business growth.

Steam turbine market share from geothermal in 2017, was valued over USD 400 million. Regulators have introduced various initiatives to encourage the adoption of non-conventional energy resources which will propel the product adoption. Its ability to provide reliable electricity with minimum carbon footprint has further stimulated the investment toward development of new geothermal capacity additions.

Steam Turbine Market, By End-use

Utility applications, in 2017, accounted for over 65% of the steam turbines market revenue share. Growing deployment of combined cycle technology along with increasing demand for onsite power generating systems will fuel the industry growth. However, replacement of coal-based power plants along with cancellation of a number of upcoming projects across India and China will hamper the business growth over forecast timeframe.

Resurgent industrial sector growth post 2008 recession along with respective government efforts to boost domestic manufacturing will drive the industrial steam turbine market. These units are installed across heavy industries including refineries, chemical and sugar plants for electricity & steam generation. Rising investment toward development of new industrial centers will further favor the product adoption in coming year.

Steam Turbine Market, By Capacity

> 100 MW steam turbine market, in 2017, was valued over USD 17 billion. Growing adoption of super-critical and ultra-super-critical technology coupled with the conversion of retiring power stations into combined cycle systems will foster the product deployment. Rapid industrialization, expansion of generating capacity and rising demand for captive power systems will fuel the business growth.

Supportive government policies coupled with resurgent economic growth has resulted in robust expansion of medium-scale industries which in turn will fuel the 3-100 MW steam turbine market. Rising focus toward cogeneration and geothermal energy utilization along with efforts toward energy optimization will further complement the industry growth.

Steam Turbine Market, By Technology

Steam turbine market by steam cycle is anticipated to witness stagnant growth on account of stringent emission norms along with regulatory measure to reduce dependence on fossil fuel power generation. However, growing installation of coal fired plants across South East Asian economies will stimulate the product adoption in the region.
