Follow us on LinkedIn – The global utility boilers market has long benefited from spiraling demand for power particularly from emerging economies, continuous changes in energy policies worldwide, and rapid technological advancements in the power generation equipment sector. The market is also driven by the heavy dependence on coal-fired power plants. The establishment of new power plants, refurbishment of existing power generation facilities, and migration to energy-efficient models are also propelling sales of utility boilers. As a key component of thermal power plants, utility boilers are strongly influenced by macro trends in the power generation sector such as liberalization and privatization.
Gas-fired boilers market represents the biggest benefactor of the global trend towards fuel diversification. The availability of cheaper unconventional shale gas in the United States is stimulating demand for gas-fired boilers in the country, while the resulting shift of global coal trade from the Atlantic region to the Pacific region is stimulating coal-fired capacity installations in Europe and Asia.
Government authorities across the globe are enforcing stringent regulations to reduce emission of greenhouse gases and toxic air pollutants from power plants thereby driving the shift from coal-fired boilers to boilers firing cleaner fuels such as solar, natural gas and biomass. Environmental regulations and government incentive programs are helping accelerate the replacement and refurbishment of aging power generation equipment with energy-efficient boiler technologies such as circulated fluidized bed combustion (CFBC) boilers, atmospheric fluidised bed combustion (AFBC) boilers, sub-critical boilers and supercritical boilers.
Aggressive product pricing in intensely competitive and price-sensitive markets such as Asia is hindering technological innovation in the power boilers market. Volatile raw material prices, uncertain steel prices, and increasing competition from Chinese vendors are some of the other major factors restricting growth in the global power boilers market.
As stated by the new market research report on Power and Utility Boilers, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 7.7% over the analysis period. Robust economic development, rapid industrialization, increasing urbanization, government infrastructure development programs, and expanding population represent key growth drivers in the region. In the developed markets of Europe and North America, aging energy infrastructure will provide opportunities for equipment replacements, upgrades and modernization.
