Based on type, the global power plant boiler market is segmented as follows:
- Pulverized Fuel
- Fluidized Circulation Bed
On the basis of type, the global power plant boiler market can be segmented into pulverized fuel, circulated fluidized bed, and others. In 2016, the pulverized fuel segment accounted for the largest revenue share in the global power plant boiler market. Pulverized technology is a widely used technology in coal-fired thermal power plants. Increasing investment in capacity expansion of coal-based thermal power plants, especially in India and China, is projected to fuel the market growth of the pulverized fuel segment. The segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period (2017–2025).
The global power plant boilers market is divided into the following segments based on technology:
On the basis of technology, the global power plant boiler market can be segmented into subcritical, supercritical, and ultra-supercritical. In 2016, the supercritical segment accounted for the largest revenue share among all technology segments. Low carbon emissions, high efficiency, and easy availability of the technology are factors driving its adoption. Moreover, growing environmental concerns over the emission of greenhouse gases and revisions in emission targets at the Paris Climate Change Conference held in 2015 are driving the adoption of low-carbon emission technology, which in turn is fueling the demand for supercritical technology over the forecast period (2017–2025).
Based on the fuel type, the global power plant boiler market is segmented as follows:
On the basis of fuel type, the global power plant boiler market can be segmented into coal, gas, oil, and others. In 2016, coal fuel type was observed to be the largest application segment in the global power plant boiler market. The high consumption of coal as fuel in thermal power plants in key consuming economies, along with the high availability of coal reserves, especially in India and China, is projected to fuel the demand for coal-based power plant boilers. However, rising environmental concerns about carbon emissions, as well as a growing preference for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, are expected to limit the segment’s growth during the forecast period (2017-2025).
For the purpose of this study, the global power plant boilers market is categorized into:
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Latin America (LATAM)
- Middle East and Africa (MEA)
On the basis of geography, the global power plant boilers market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. In 2016, Asia Pacific was estimated to hold the largest share of the global power plant boilers market and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Rapid urbanization and prompt industrial growth in the region, especially in China and India, are projected to fuel the energy demand in the region, which in turn is fueling the investment in power plant infrastructure and subsequently impelling the demand for power plant boilers in the region. Thus, the region is projected to witness high growth in demand for power plant boilers over the forecast period (2017–2025).
