Global Fuel Flexible Boiler Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
Majority of the world’s energy requirements is fulfilled by thermal power. Thermal power stations operate on the principle of ‘hot steam driving the turbines’ to generate electricity. The use of diverse fuel types ‘to generate steam’ differentiates the thermal power stations. Of the various fuels viz. oil, gas, coal, and nuclear; the majority of the fuel requirement by thermal power stations is met by coal. Coal is the most widely used fuel because of its availability around the world and low cost. To increase the power output, while controlling the pollution supercritical power projects have been promoted by major power producing nations. The usage of wide range of coals or even coal and biomass mixture in fuel flexible boilers provides multiple options as feedstock for energy generation. Moreover, the direction of the power sector is towards non-fossil fuel based technologies. So, the future demand is going to be for solar and biomass powered boilers.
Increasing Awareness about Clean Energy is Driving the Market
Globally, the increasing focus on cleaner energy solution that is capable of providing power efficiently. Moreover, the government support for better solution has resulted in complementing the demand for newer technology based power solutions. The demand for flexible fuel boilers emanate from development of new power plants based on solid fuels and replacement of old boiler with new ones.
Asia Pacific is Region with Highest Market Share
Asia Pacific region has highest share in fuel flexible boiler market, owing to huge demand of electricity in the region. The countries, such as China, India, etc. in Asia-Pacific region are highly dependent on solid fuel for power generation. Moreover, the surge in manufacturing Industry in the region is likely to promulgate the fuel flexible boiler market in near future.
China to Dominate the Market
China is anticipated to dominate the market for fuel flexible boilers on account of massive demand of power in the country. The robust industrial infrastructure in the country is one of the major driver for power generation infrastructure. The increased focus on tackling environmental issues has led to stringent rules and regulations to control the hazardous gas emissions would lead to renovation of aging power plants, which in turn, would drive the fuel flexible boiler market in China.
