Captive Power Generation Market in India 2019-2023
About this market
Increasing adoption of cogeneration plants to drive market growth. Cogeneration plants, also known as combined heat and power (CH P) or distributed generation, produce two or more forms of energy from a single source of fuel simultaneously. Such plants offer higher efficiency rates compared with single-generation plants. The key advantage of cogeneration plants is that they produce additional energy using the waste heat from components such as exhausts of the manufacturing plant to provide electricity and heat for the power plants. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the captive power generation market in India will register a CAGR of over 5% by 2023.
High industrial power tariff
Electricity is a critical input in every industry, especially in the manufacturing industry. Electricity costs have a substantial effect across the process value chain of the manufacturers and their final products. The high-cost tariffs generally have a negative impact on all the industries that rely on electricity inputs as they increase the competition between domestic manufacturers and international manufacturers. Additionally, it results in passing on the price increment to the end-users, thereby resulting in hiked prices of the manufactured commodities.
Shortage of coal for captive power generation
The captive power generation market in India is heavily dependent on coal, and it accounts for the majority of the fuel used for captive power generation in India. Captive power plant operators have been experiencing a shortage of coal due to factors such as the government's plan of prioritizing the supply of coal for its power production utilities. The shortage of coal adversely affects the operations and jeopardizes the production of various end-products such as steel, cement, aluminum. and fertilizers.
