Brief Overview

The Power Plant Boiler is a type of machine used to generate heat by using water heat energy to generate electricity. The boiler is built into a furnace that combusts fossil fuels and generates heat that is passed into the water to form steam. The efficiency of these boilers has significantly increased over the years, with some systems having fuel-to-steam efficiency up to 90%. The dimensions of these boilers depend on their usefulness and mainly on their steam-based or hot water operations in power plants and industry. The different types of power plant boilers are fluidized boilers, multi-tube boilers, and pulverized boilers, each of which has a specific purpose. Depending on their application, these boilers are used in various industries. In comparison with power stations and industrial plants, mobile steam engines such as portable engines, steam-locomotives make use of the smaller boiler connecting them to piping points of use. It is widely applied in electricity production in the energy industry.

Market Insights

Increasing Demand for Electricity 

Power station boilers are used for high-pressure steam production by different combustibles like coal, natural gas, petroleum and biomass, in order to generate electricity. The fastest-growing energy demand source is electricity. According to the IEA, the global demand for electricity in the Stated Policies scenario is projected to increase to 4.1% annually by 2022, twice as high as the primary energy demand. This increases the share of electricity from 20% in 2021 to 28% in 2022 in total energy consumption. Huge amounts of energy continue to be consumed by developed countries, thus increasing demand in developing countries. Increased revenues, increased industrial output, and growing services are boosting demand for electricity.

In addition, in the coming years, increasing dependence on electronic gadgets such as smartphones, smart automation, and others is likely to fuel power demand. Over the forecast period, the increasing power requirement is expected to provide a steady demand for the product.

Rapid Industrialization in Developing Countries

The growth of the market is boosted by factors such as growing urbanization, increasing power demand, demand for coal fuel-based boilers, and the number of power capacity expansion projects. In addition, technological advancements and progress in the process of increasing efficiency and reducing carbon emissions are likely to drive innovation in the market. Despite concerns over high carbon emissions, the use of coal is likely to rise in the coming years. Governments worldwide seek various alternatives through the adoption of efficient coal-based pollution reduction technologies.

The opportunity to use supercritical technology has been given by developing steam conditions. It is anticipated that the transmission/distribution infrastructure & power sector will have the largest investment projects in the industrial world, providing ample opportunities for market growth. During the forecast period, the global size of the power plant boiler market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 18.1 billion in 2022 to USD 23 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.8 percent.

High investment in capital and high installation costs for power plants are major factors that restrict the growth of the boiler market for global power plants. In addition, boiler corrosion is another factor that, to some extent, hampers the growth of the global market. Over the forecast period, technological advances towards the development of efficient power plant boilers will create profitable opportunities for the world's largest manufacturers.

Geographical Analysis

In 2019, Asia-Pacific accounted for the major share of the Boiler Market Size for Power Plants and will continue to lead in the coming period. The rapid industrialization and shift to cleaner power generation sources such as biomass and biogas in India, China and the other emerging economies will boost the Asia-Pacific region’s growth. The Asia-Pacific region is followed by North America and is expected to see significant growth in the coming years.

The market for North America & Europe is expected to grow at a significant rate because the government has focused on alternative and cleaner sources of fuel for boiler power plants.
