Market Size & Forecast

The factors that drive the power plant boiler market includes technological advancement towards development of more efficient boilers and rapid growth of industrialization using renewable source of energy to meet the growing demand. Power generation energy mix in most of the countries is led by coal. The capital requirement for setting up a coal-based power plant is comparatively less in comparison to other fuel-based power plants. Additionally, coal is easily available in most of the countries, and can also be easily transported from one place to other.

Currently the power plant boiler market is observing subsequent growth owing to government-led initiatives and the rising demand for energy. Power plant boiler market is expected to record a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period and to reach a valuation of around USD 30 Billion at the end of the period.

Growth Drivers

Increasing Demand And Rapid Industrialization In Developing Countries

Factors such as growing urbanization, rising power demand, demand for coal fuel-based boilers, number of power capacity expansion projects are boosting the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements and advancements in the process to increase efficiency and reduce carbon emissions are likely to drive the market towards innovation. The use of coal is likely to increase in the coming years despite concerns over high carbon emissions. The governments across the world are looking for various alternatives to limit pollution caused due to coal by adopting efficient technologies.


High Cost of Technology

Despite drivers for instance governments’ mandated use of clean coal technologies (CCT) for new coal-fired power plants, cheap coal prices, and supportive policies in a few countries for coal-fired power plants, challenges owing to increased focus on renewable energy sources and natural gas to move away from coal for cleaner energy, fluctuating raw material prices, environmental regulations, land acquisition problems, non-availability of domestic coal in some countries, and energy supply security issues are expected to hinder the growth potential of power boilers in the global market.

Global Economic Impact

Request Insights
Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
