Global gas turbines market to reach approximately $20.5 Bn in 2021

Zion Market Research has published a new report titled "Gas Turbines Market (Heavy Duty and Aeroderivative), By Rated Capacity (1 To 40 MW, 40 To 120 MW, 120 To 300 MW, and Above 300 MW), By Application (Oil & Gas, Power Generation and Other Industries) - Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Segment, Trends and Forecast, 2015 – 2021". According to the report, global gas turbines market was valued at $16.0 billion in 2015, is expected to reach $20.5 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 4% between 2016 and 2021.

Increasing efficiency and durability of gas turbines are major driving factors for gas turbines market. A strict carbon emission regulation across the globe is expected to drive the gas turbines market in the near future. Furthermore, advancement in technology and lower power generating cost are the factors to drive the growth of the gas turbines market.Extended start-up time, lesser efficiency at idle speed and low sensitivity to modification in power demand are expected to hamper the demand growth over the coming few years.

The industrial gas turbine market can be segmented on the basis of design types which include heavy duty type and aero-derivative type gas turbines. The heavy duty type gas turbine was the leading segment in 2015 owing to increase in the number of large gas-fired plants and the demand for heavy-duty gas turbines. The industry can be further divided by rated capacity turbines are segmented into 1 to 40 MW, 40 to 120 MW, 120 to 300 MW, and above 300 MW. Oil & gas, power generation, and other industries are application segment of gas turbines market.

Out of all the regional segments of the global market, Asia Pacific held the dominant share in the overall gas turbines market across the globe in 2015. This dominance is majorly witnessed due to the huge population and high electricity demand in this region. China and India are most populous countries in this region.

China alone consumed more than 20% world's electricity in 2015. Power generation in Asia Pacific was supported by their huge amount of natural sources.

Siemens AG, Alstom S.A, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, General Electric Company, Ansaldo Energia S.P.A and among others are some of the major players in this market.
