Published:  Oct 2022 Report Code: KSI061610146 Pages: 114

The Asia Pacific (APAC) gas turbine market is estimated to grow from US$5.030 billion in 2020 to US$7.590 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.05% over the forecast period.

During the past few years, there has been exponential growth with regard to the gas turbine market. This is because of the technological progress that has effectuated the design and development of highly efficient gas turbine units for varied capacities. This class of equipment finds its application in a variety of spaces. To name a few, supersonic wind tunnels, advanced gas lasers, jet engines, as well as mechanical drives are used on land, sea, or air. Gas turbines are increasingly being used in power generation plants for their huge power generation capacity. It is also the most sought-after due to its compactness, flexibility, operational compatibility, and high performance. Its unique characteristic of having multiple fuel capabilities is another aspect that makes it a great choice for power generation. The application of gas turbines in aerospace is inclusive of but not limited to jets, turbofans, turbojets, as well as turboprops. Thus, such a wide range of applications is poised to power the growth of the APAC gas turbine market.

Recent market developments

Considering the market development of gas turbines in the APAC region, a notable among many is the construction of a high-efficiency HL-class power island for a new combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in South Korea, that would be set up by Siemens. This was announced in November 2019. The end-user of this plant is independent power producer Yeoju Energy Services. The Yeoju plant can accommodate two gas turbines, among others. The two gas turbines are of the model SGT6-9000HL. This model is an up-gradation of the SGT-8000H series of gas turbines. The plant is set to be commissioned in 2022.

Earlier in July 2018, Siemens and State Power Investment Corp. (SPIC) of China entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Berlin, Germany in the presence of German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese Premier Le Keqiang to further confirm the intention of technology collaboration in the field of heavy-duty gas turbines. Being one of the world’s most prominent markets for large gas turbines and China is slated to make huge investments in large gas turbine technology.  This MoU is symbiotic and would help in the convergence of Siemens’ technological leadership and China’s vast experience in the Chinese market.

In January 2020, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) announced it had signed an agreement with Korea Western Power Co. (KOWEPO) to supply a gas turbine to the power plant located in Gimpo city in the Gyeonggi Province. The large gas turbines have been successfully developed in-house since 2013. This joint effort was carried out to promote the subsequent growth of the domestic gas turbine industry. Furthermore, being in line with the 8th Basic Plan for Electricity Supply & Demand, which was announced by the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, the Government of South Korea.

Therefore, from the events leading to 2020, it could be delineated that there has been a surge in transactions pertaining to gas turbines. These conditions have fueled the gas turbine market in this region and are eventually projected to drive the APAC gas turbine market during the anticipated period.

  • GE Gas Power offers a high-efficiency, air-cooled gas turbine named 9HA gas turbine among H-Class offerings. Furthermore, the 9HA gas turbine not only offers the most cost-effective conversion of fuel to electricity but also provides industry-leading operational flexibility.

COVID-19 Impact on Asia Pacific (APAC) Gas Turbines Market 

During the pandemic, the Asia Pacific gas turbine market witnessed a significant impact. In order to reduce any capital expenditures, the power utilities focused on maintaining the gas turbines rather than buying a new gas turbine for their operations. This behavior led to lower demand for gas turbines in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, the growing preference for renewable power generation has further hampered the growth of the Asia Pacific gas turbine market.
