Global Hydropower Market is predicted to grow at more than 3% by 2027 :

Pune, India, May 24, 2017 /MRFR Press Release/- Market research future published a half cooked research report on global Hydropower market. The Hydropower market is expected to grow over the CAGR of more than 3% during the period 2017 to 2023.

Market Highlights
The growing attention towards efficiencies of conversion of the adoption of renewable energy integration coupled with its wide applications range including water supply for irrigation and flood control will boost the hydropower market growth during the forecast period. The global volatility in fossil fuel prices along with initiatives towards energy security will further complement the hydropower industry landscape. Hydropower is one of the oldest sources of energy which was used for thousands of years ago, to turn paddle wheels that help grind grain. Hydropower is a versatile, sustainable technology and it is the world’s largest source of the renewable energy and currently accounts for about 20% of the world’s total electricity supply.

As, Hydropower comes along with low levelised cost, high capacity utilization factor and ease of grid parity, which will stimulate the global hydropower market size. Recently, Energy Information Administration (EIA) quoted that, hydroelectricity capacity utilization factor (CUF) to be over 60% when compared to 25% for Solar PV. Stringent government regulation towards reducing the global carbon footprint coupled with depleting conventional resources will drive the global hydropower market. However, the high initial investment cost of hydropower infrastructure with safety concern regarding it and developing modern technology with alternative product launch can restrain global hydropower market.

Market Research Analysis

Small Hydropower segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate

The low civil construction rate associated with growing measures to limit the carbon emissions will boost the small hydropower market.  Favorable renewable policy model along with financial assistance by the institutions including climate aligned bonds, Aquila Capital and World Bank will drive the small & large scale hydropower across the globe. In 2015, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) introduced the Small-Scale Hydro Power (SSHP) Program with a target of achieving 33% share of the overall energy mix by 2020 under the ECOWAS Renewable Energy Policy (EREP). The overall costing of the small scale hydropower is the crucial factor as compared to other capacity, which will drive the global small scale hydropower.
