The demand for reliable and clean electricity is growing across the world on account of industrial expansion and development of commercial infrastructure. Moreover, the growth in urban infrastructure is driving the demand for a reliable source of power. The gas engines are capable of running continuously at full loads and hence, are increasingly being preferred, particularly in the industrial and commercial sector, where a reliable and continuous electricity supply is of paramount importance.

With the growing concerns over the air pollution, both, developing and developed countries are encouraging the use of gas over other hydrocarbons, such as crude oil and coal, as a source for power generation. Emerging countries, such as India and China are aggressively investing in gas transport infrastructure in order to ensure reliable and continuous supply of the gas, which in turn is expected to assist with driving the gas-fired power generation market. The growth of gas-based power generation is expected to support the demand for gas engines in the power sector.

Higher Efficiency for Large Power Capacity Units to Drive the Market

The power generation capacity limits for gas engines were traditionally considered at 50-70 MW. But, with technological advancements gas engines have proved a superior choice, in terms of efficiency, for power generation capacities higher than 200 MW. Due to their high efficiency for higher power generation capacity units coupled with an ability to run at full loads, the gas engines are increasingly being preferred for large power generation plants, which, in turn, is expected to help drive the gas engine market.

Europe to Dominate the Market Share

Europe is anticipated to dominate the global gas engine market on account of stringent environmental norms being implemented in the region. The countries in the European region are committed to Paris Climate deal, which is a big boost for clean power technologies. Moreover, the total cost of ownership of gas engines is lesser than diesel engines due to former’s cheaper operating cost, which ensures more efficient power generation. Therefore, owing to stringent environmental norms and efficiency in power generation, Europe is anticipated to be the major region for gas engines market during the forecast period.
