Oil and Gas Waste Heat Recovery Market Trends




  • Rising emphasis on reducing carbon footprint drives market growth.




Market CAGR for oil and gas waste heat recovery is being driven by the rising focus on reducing carbon footprint. The growing importance of energy conservation paired with severe environmental laws around the world will enhance market size. Only a few of the energy-intensive industries with significant waste heat recovery potential are petroleum refining, cement, glass, heavy metal processing, and chemical production. WHR systems are likely to become more important in the coming years due to their capacity to reduce running costs while also producing onsite energy and heat. Government regulations aiming at reducing carbon emissions while boosting energy efficiency will drive growth in the WHRS sector. Continuous technological developments have significantly enhanced productivity while decreasing device costs, imitating business growth. Furthermore, growing market awareness of environmental conservation and efficient waste heat utilisation will boost the industry's potential.


Waste heat recovery systems are used for plant process heating, combustion air pre-heating, boiler feed water pre-heating, steam ejectors, ORC generators, and building comfort heat. Waste heat is frequently inefficient in terms of temperature. Making the most of the available heat might be tough. In these cases, ORC technology may give an additional benefit by improving overall plant performance. This normally useless energy is converted into electricity by the ORC gadget. Heating process fluid is required in the upstream oil and gas industry for floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO), offshore process platforms, and onshore processing plants. This is performed by absorbing waste heat from exhaust gases and using it to power the gas turbine generator (GTG) or process gas compressor (PGC). Decentralised power supply is another trend in the world's expanding energy consumption. Even if many locations lack access to centralised resources, local infrastructure need electricity. To generate independent electricity, any viable fuel, such as biomass, domestic garbage, or waste heat from an industrial activity, is employed.


In addition, commercial and other businesses generate a significant amount of waste heat in the energy system. Many businesses are utilising heat recovery systems to recover this energy and reduce energy loss, and so the rising industrialisation is a major factor fueling the waste heat recovery system market demand. Thus, driving the oil and gas waste heat recovery market revenue.
