An introduction to the heat recovery steam generators market
Heat recovery steam generators or waste heat boilers help convert water into superheated steam in three different sections - evaporator, economizer, and superheater. These systems also help in waste heat recovery and utilize this energy for steam generation. They provide a thermodynamic link between gas and steam turbines to achieve optimum performance in a combined – cycle power plant. Furthermore, the strong demand for highly efficient combined cycles to reduce fuel-related costs and facilitate fast start-up and extensive cycling operations have called for the greater use of heat recovery steam generators. Heat recovery steam generators have contributed to the resolution of the greenhouse effect for the next decade. Innovations in heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) have led to the further development of horizontal once-through unit type heat recovery steam generators, which eliminates the high pressure drum that strongly limits temperature gradients. The fatigue life consumption of thick components is due to the stresses induced by temperature gradients during shutdown and start-up cycles. By application, heat recovery steam generators have been used in combined cycle, combined heat & power, and co-generation (process heating) type of plants. The market has been mainly governed by tier-1 players, with an aggregate market value share of over 50%. This can be termed as a high value high growth market.
Factors influencing the global heat recovery steam generators market growth
The growth of the global heat recovery steam generators market depends on growing awareness to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, power plant efficiency enhancement, adoption and installation of new co-generation power plants, and regional investments, as well as the scope of repair and maintenance of the existing units. However, high capital investments and lack of skilled workforce related to the operation of heat recovery steam generators might act as deterrents to the growth of the heat recovery steam generators market. Gradual urbanization and industrialization across the globe, have, in turn, augmented energy consumption, which has also resulted in the considerable deployment of heat recovery steam generators to fulfil the demand.
The growth of the global heat recovery steam generators market is likely to gain from the regions of Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, and Eastern Europe, owing to increased instalments of greenfield projects of new co-generation and combined heat & power plants by public and private enterprises with a projected growth above the global CAGR. The heat recovery steam generators market has gained near saturation levels in the developed economic regions of North America, Western Europe, and Japan, and is expected to witness growth at moderate levels during the forecast period
