The global gas turbine market is estimated to garner significant revenue by growing at a ~5% CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022–2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing demand for electricity amongst the rising population, along with the rapid adoption of natural gas to produce electricity. Initially, major power plants were thermal, which means they were coal-based. However, this situation is changing on account of growing awareness regarding pollution and depleting fossil fuels, which is expected to increase the adoption of natural gas-based power plants, which use gas turbines to generate electricity. Moreover, the increasing demand for power in the commercial and industrial sector is also estimated to fuel the demand for natural gas-based electricity. Increasing consumption of natural gas amongst various sectors, including, power sector is estimated to further boost the market growth. According to the report by the IEA, the global natural gas consumption increased by 3.2% from 2020 to 2021.

The global gas turbine market is segmented by capacity into less than 30 MW, 30-120 MW, 120-200 MW, and above 200 MW, out of which, the above 200 MW segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the market during the forecast period owing to its high usage in power plants for electricity generation. On the basis of end-user industry, the market is segmented into energy & power, oil & gas, aviation, and others, out of which the energy & power segment is anticipated to garner the largest share over the forecast period on the back of increasing shift of power generation from coal to oil and gas in various developed countries. The aviation gas turbine segment, on the other hand, is expected to hold a significant market share, backed by the increasing aircraft shipments worldwide, and the rising demand for air travel amongst passengers.
In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government-imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.
Regionally, the global gas turbine market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region. The market in North America region is estimated to garner largest share over the forecast period on the back of increasing adoption of natural gas as a source of electricity, backed by presence of oil wells in the countries, such as, Canada, and United States. Moreover, the government initiatives to reduce carbon emission is further anticipated to boost the market growth. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2020, the power sector consumed about 38% of total U.S. natural gas, while the total consumption was 30.48 trillion cubic ton.
The market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to witness highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing need for power backed by rapid industrial development, urbanization and increasing population in the region. Moreover, depleting coal resources and slow adoption of renewable resources for electricity generation in developing countries is also estimated to fuel the market growth.
