Steam Turbine Market Platform Segment Insights

Steam Turbine Type Insights

Based on the type, the market has been segmented into condensing and noncondensing. Among them, condensing segment is the largest segment of the market accounting for 61.78% of the global market in 2022. Further the segment is expected to register a high CAGR of 3.44% during the forecast period. High-pressure steam is used by the noncondensing kind of steam turbine, and a lower-pressure steam is exhausted to a header. In order to recover condensate, the condensing turbine exhausts to a surface condenser, which is often a sizable exchanger with an attached hot well but may also take the shape of an air fan.

When consistent power output and steam extraction at a set pressure are needed, condensation steam turbines are used. Steam can be used to extract the most energy possible because of the large enthalpy difference between its initial and final conditions. Condensing steam turbines are widely used for co-generation, in which the turbine generates both the central power and steam requirements of the process plant.

Steam Turbine Type Insights

August 2020: Shanghai Electric Group has signed a contract to deliver steam turbines to be used in China National Nuclear's two nuclear power plants.

Steam Turbine Rated Capacity Insights

Based on rated capacity, the steam turbine market has segmented into Up to 150 MW, 151-300 MW and Above 300 MW. Above 300 MW segment held the largest market share (56.63%) in 2022. Due to the rising demand for industrial CHP units, steam turbines with a capacity of up to 150 MW are anticipated to experience substantial increase during the projection period. Due to their greater efficiency than single units, CHP units are becoming more and more popular across a variety of process industries. The demand for CHP, which may also provide direct power, electricity, and heat, has recently increased. The 151 to 300 MW segment is anticipated to experience the highest growth during the forecast period due to the high demand for small steam turbines in small- and mid-sized combined cycle power plants (CCPP), combined heat and power (CHP), petrochemicals, biomass, and concentrated solar power (CSP) solutions. Additionally, because there is such a large demand from the steel, cement, chemical, and other industries, vendors that produce steam turbines are concentrating more on the small steam turbine category.

August 2021: Doosan Škoda Power supplied Acciona a steam turbine for the Avertas Energy facility in Australia under a contract. The Avertas Energy facility is the first of a number of planned energy from waste projects for energy recovery in Australia.

Steam Turbine Heat Source Insights

Based on the heat source, the market has been segmented into Coal, Nuclear, Biomass and Others. Among them, coal segment is the largest segment of the market accounting for 55.54% of the global market in 2022. In addition to waste exhaust heat recovered in a heat recovery steam generator, steam turbines can use a wide range of fuel sources in the accompanying boiler or other heat source, including coal, oil, natural gas, wood, and waste products. Wood, coal, natural gas, oil (including residual oil, the stuff left over after the lucrative distillates have been removed for separate sale), municipal solid waste, and sludge are only a few of the fuels used by industrial boilers. The equipment required for solid fuel handling, storage, and preparation significantly raises the cost of an installation. Therefore, these fuels are only used when the facility is predicted to have a high annual capacity factor or when it is necessary to dispose of the solid material to prevent an environmental or space occupancy issue. Renewable organic material from plants and animals is known as biomass. Up until the middle of the 1800s, biomass accounted for the majority of the entire yearly U.S. energy consumption. Biomass is a popular fuel in many nations, particularly for heating and cooking in underdeveloped nations. In many industrialized nations, the use of biomass fuels for electricity production and transportation is rising as a way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels. Nearly 5 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) and 5% of all primary energy used in the United States were provided by biomass in 2021.

May 2020: The contract was awarded to MAN Energy Solutions for two MST050 steam turbines, each with a gearbox, generator, and auxiliary components. The steam turbines, with a total power output of approximately 56 MW, will be installed in a CHP power plant that will supply electricity and heat to the city of Leipzig.

Steam Turbine End-User Insights

Based on the end user, the market has been segmented into industrial and power & utility. Among them, the commercial segment is the largest segment of the market accounting for 85.11% of the global market in 2022. Throughout the projection period, the power utility segment is anticipated to continue to dominate the market. Electrical power generation applications typically use steam turbines. The market has been divided into power and utility and industrial segments based on end-use. Any combustion fuel can be used with steam turbine units, but historically coal has been the fuel of choice. The use of coal-fired power plants and renewable energy sources like natural gas has been curtailed due to growing environmental concerns. Furthermore, it is now imperative to use renewable energy sources.

The expansion of industrial activity worldwide is responsible for the industrial segment's expansion. In the form of CHP units, steam turbines are used in industrial applications. These units create outputs in various ways and are more efficient than single units. The increased need for steam turbines in internal power plants in the industrial sector is also a result of frequent load limitations and power interruptions.
