Market dynamics


The rise in the power generation market in mainly due to the increase in population, urbanization and smart grid technologies. The past evidence of economic growth observed in various developing countries have given chance to future market players of the power generation market. The surge in urbanization in the developing countries have given the rapid increase in demand for electricity , which has eventually forced the respective governments across the world to start various initiatives to ensure adequate power supply on their country. The popularization of smart grid technologies due to the significant benefits provided due to its efficiency and reliability, and this is one of the major factors having an impact on the growth of the global power generation market during the forecast period.

The increase in demand for advance power generation and the proactive government support has improved the power generation and distribution network in countries like India and China. The growing use of electricity in transportation has given positive approach for pushing up demand of power generation market.


The main restraint faced by the power generation market is the old infrastructure which have been giving struggles to meet the growing electricity demand. In most of the developing nations across the globe infrastructure aging issue has led to an increased need for replacement and major demand for investments. This hampers the growth of the global power generation market to a great extent. Distribution of electricity over longer distances leads to an increase in the temperature of the power line which creates energy loss. And this loss of electricity can have a negative impact on the growth of this market.

The capacity of these lines needs to be increased but the cost of installing new power lines is high and grid modernization becomes challenging. Digitalization has played a significant role in various sectors across the globe but digitalization in this field will do more harm due to an increase in the number of cyber-attacks in the recent times. Training of skilled personnel and acquiring such skilled people for performing daily activities is difficult. Training of the new people requires systematic knowledge transfer and there is a gap in demand and supply for training in this field. Compliance with the policies enacted by the regulatory bodies increases the burden of finances. This leads to a growing need of operational efficiency by the providers in order to make profits. 


The top opportunities lying in the power generation market have been increased in the fossil fuel segment which will gains billions of global annual sales. Environmental pollution that is caused due to the combustion of biomass that is used majorly in the rural places of the developing nations will provide potential opportunities for the growth of the global power generation market. Developing nations make use of conventional biomass for agricultural activities and for the purpose of cooking.


The decline in investment in the power sectors is the biggest challenge in the market growth. As the number of investments have reduced, initiating new projects will be difficult. Inadequate generation of electricity to meet the commercial demand will also hamper the market growth. The installed capacity for generation of power may not be utilize in the optimum way and this will hamper the market growth. Lack of subsidies and policies may have a negative impact on the growth of the market across the globe.
