Turbine Market in India 2015-2019
A turbine transforms rotational energy to usable energy with the help of revolving rotors and blades. Steam, gas, or other combustion products such as CO2 and carbon monoxide are used for the rotation. Steam turbines are used to extract thermal energy from steam to perform mechanical functions using blades attached to a rotor. The turbine rotates when highly pressurized steam passes through a series of rotor blades.Gas turbines are used in gas-fired power plants in which an internal combustion engine is placed, where the fuel is mixed with air and ignited. The resultant high-temperature gas is directed to a gas turbine through a nozzle, which results in the rotation of the turbine.
Technavio's analysts forecast the Turbine market in India to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Turbine Market in India 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Turbine Market in India: GE, BHEL, Siemens, Shanghai Electric and Dongfang Electric
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alstom and Toshiba JSW Power
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The Government of India provides various financial and tax incentives for the power producers in the country. Industrialization has triggered the demand for power. Therefore, the government has proposed to establish UMPPs functioning on supercritical technology to meet this rising power demand. The government allocated $16 million for preparatory work for these UMPPs. Under Deen Dayal Upadhaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, the government allocated $ 78.68 million for launching feeder separation to augment the power supply to rural areas. Apart from this, the government has also provided state-based, area-based, and R&D incentives. Therefore, the government has provided various forms of financial support to strengthen the power sector in India. These favorable incentives will boost the installation of turbines for power plants in the country.”
According to the report, India has abundant coal reserves that play a crucial role in ensuring power demand. Coal-fired power generation using steam turbines is the major contributor for overall power generation in the country. Traditional thermal power plants consisted of sub-critical boilers that rotated steam turbines to generate power. The power efficiencies have increased with the adoption of supercritical technology. It also led to the decrease in CO2 emissions considerably. The emphasis on reducing CO2 emissions encouraged NTPC to take an initiative to implement supercritical technology for power plants in India. NTPC has commissioned three supercritical units in the country and it is expected to increase further. As coal is expected to remain the mainstay fuel in India in the coming years, the adoption of advanced supercritical technology will increase power efficiency and decrease CO2 emissions.
Further, the report states that the non-availability of gas for thermal power plants has become the major challenge in India.
