Industry Outlook

Perpetual rise in demand for electric energy and rising pressure of optimum utilization of available resources encouraged power plant simulators market to grow with a growth rate of 3.6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. A power plant is combination of millions of systems and sub-systems working together with a common goal of electricity generation. Each system and sub-system has its own significance and plays a crucial part in maintaining the overall plant efficiency and operational safety. Handing over critical responsibilities of power plant to new recruits and inexperienced employees can result in significant decline in plant efficiency and can invite unwanted mishaps due to negligence. In order to avoid any unwanted accidents and decline in plant capabilities, power plant companies train their employees at power plant simulators. Rising number of power plants across the world requires highly trained professional to operate the plant. Consequently, the demand for power plant simulators to train employees projected to grow significantly in coming years.

Market Synopsis

Power Plant Simulators Market

Thermal and Nuclear Power Plants Getting Ready to make Way for Renewable Energy Power Plant

Thermal power plant witnessed sharp decline of 73% in construction of new thermal power plant in last two years (2016-2017) especially in China and India, two of the most leading thermal power plant countries across the world. Reduction in thermal power plant erection affected the sales of thermal power plant simulators negatively. However, addition of 50 new nuclear reactors to an existing tally of 450 nuclear expected to drive nuclear power plant simulators market in coming years. Besides all power plants, a notable growth in construction of renewable energy power plants has been observed compared to other power plants across the globe. This created tremendous opportunities for the renewable energy power plant simulators to go past thermal and nuclear power plant simulators market in terms of market value beyond forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Power Plant Simulators Market

Power Plant End-user to Mark its Presence with Highest Market Value

At present, power plant is the biggest end-user of power plant simulators in terms of market value. Power plants across the globe irrespective of the type require their employees to be ready for any unwanted circumstances and maintain the continuity of electric generation. Power plant procures their own power plant training simulators to prepare their employees for any possible situational problems before deploying them to actual installation. Consequently, power plant is the biggest consumers of power plant simulators and hence are the major contributor to the overall market value. Individual and government educational and training institute are the second largest contributor. Governments in developing nations are encouraging educational institutes to procure power plant simulators in order to train more and more citizens and create employment across power sector.

Developing Countries in Asia Pacific to be Area of Focus for Future Power Plant Simulators Market

North America and Europe have the biggest share of overall power plant simulators market. The presence of number of nuclear and other power plants have generated considerable demand for power plant simulators in North America and especially in the U.S. Similarly, growing significance of renewable energy sources encouraged the market for renewable energy power plant simulators in Europe in past few years. Both the regions face each other closely in the market value race in 2017. Asia Pacific is the most potential market for power plant simulators in coming years. With considerable rise in power demand and government initiatives to fulfill those demands created tremendous prospects for the market to grow. In addition, incorporation of renewable energy sources for power generation expected to generate demands for renewable energy power plant simulators in coming years.
