Cogeneration Equipment Market Size (2023-2028):

The Global Cogeneration Equipment Market size was valued at US$ 25.22 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach US$ 44.9 billion by 2028 and increase at a CAGR of 10.50% during 2023-2028.

Market Overview:

Cogeneration also termed combined heat and power (CHP), is the use of energy in two forms at the same time, often mechanical and thermal energy, by maximizing the efficiency of fuel energy in a cost-effective and ecologically acceptable manner. Cogeneration equipment includes motors, pumps, compressors, steam turbines, air compressors, combustion chambers, gas turbines, and many more items utilized in cogeneration systems. With the use of a steam turbine and a gas turbine, cogeneration produces energy and usable heat in the same plant. Furthermore, the efficiency of a cogeneration system is around 90% since 40% of the energy can be transformed into electrical energy, 50% of the energy can be converted into heat, and only 10% of the energy is lost using this system. Steam turbines and engines, gas turbines and engines, blades, air compressors, combustion chambers, rotors, stationary nozzles, rotating and rigged pallets, boilers, generators, condensers, pumps, and many more items are used in cogeneration.

Market Drivers:

Cogeneration systems aid in the mitigation of climate change, and the growth in environmental concerns has resulted in an increase in demand for them. Furthermore, cogeneration reduces energy consumption and is a cost-effective method that increases energy supply security, resulting in an increase in demand for cogeneration systems, which might be a major development factor for the worldwide cogeneration equipment market throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing gas infrastructure around the world has increased the demand for cogeneration systems, which might be a major development factor for the market. Over the projection period, demand is likely to be fueled by an increase in renewable energy projects in the Asia Pacific and Latin America.

In combined heat and power (CHP) systems, natural gas is the most commonly used fuel. It is widely available, particularly in Russia, the United States, Canada, Iran, and Qatar. CHP equipment demand is predicted to rise in the near future due to falling natural gas prices and sufficient supply, as well as supporting government policies and ageing infrastructure. Residential buildings, oil and gas production facilities, small and large-scale enterprises, and commercial uses such as hospitals, universities, and retail malls are all examples of where CHP is used. Cogeneration systems can be used in both industrial and commercial settings, as well as in smaller home settings. Cogeneration plants create heat that is used for a variety of purposes, including industrial operations, space, and water heating. Due to rising power consumption, the application scope of CHP systems in end-use sectors such as paper, food, chemical, oil, and refining is expected to expand throughout the projection period, complementing equipment demand. It is gaining popularity because of advantages such as lower operating costs, which are achieved by substituting low-cost power and heat energy for higher-cost electricity and boiler fuels.

Market Restraints:

One of the primary barriers to the cogeneration equipment market is the high initial investment requirement, as well as the difficulty in obtaining suitable utility connections. These systems are useful in the long run, but because of their complicated technological needs, their initial cost is relatively high when compared to traditional systems, making them impossible to purchase for many small and medium-sized enterprises and institutions.

Market Segmentation:

Cogeneration Equipment Market - By Fuel Type:

  • Biogas
  • Natural gas/ LPG
  • Coal
  • Diesel
  • Others

Based on fuel type, in 2020, natural gas dominated the global cogeneration equipment market, and it is expected to continue to be the fastest-growing sector during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to its eco-friendly nature and high mileage.

Cogeneration Equipment Market - By Capacity:

  • High Capacity
  • Medium capacity

By capacity type, the high-capacity segment held the largest market share in 2020, at roughly 43.6 per cent, and is expected to hold this position throughout the forecast period. This is due to its widespread use in pulp and paper mills, the cement industry, and other sectors.

Cogeneration Equipment Market - By Technology:

  • Gas turbine
  • Steam turbine
  • Combined steam
  • Reciprocating engine

Cogeneration Equipment Market - By Application:

  • Industrial
  • Commercial
  • Residential

The industrial category accounted for roughly 30.56 per cent of the worldwide market share in 2020, according to the application. This is due to an increase in power generation demand in a variety of businesses around the world, including power plants, pulp and paper, cement, and many others.

Market Regional Analysis: 

The Global Cogeneration Equipment Market Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East & Africa

Because of the abundance of natural gas in nations like Germany and Russia, Europe is predicted to develop at the fastest rate over the forecast period. Over the next seven years, demand in the region is expected to be driven by cost and space constraints in big cities, as well as strict environmental restrictions.

Due to the rising demand for CHP systems from the industrial sector in countries like China, India, and South Korea, Asia Pacific is likely to rise significantly over the forecast period. Demand in the Asia Pacific region is likely to be driven by India's growing power sector, which is expected to fulfil fast-rising energy demand.

Due to reasons such as severe environmental regulations governing electricity use and a shift toward renewable energy, North America is likely to see a boom in demand. Over the projected period, the Middle East and Africa are expected to increase at a moderate rate.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Cogeneration Equipment Market:

As a result of the worldwide economic slowdown, key sectors such as pulp and paper mills, cement, and many others were forced to halt operations for a limited time. Because of the government's rigorous rules, the sector has shrunk, resulting in a gradual drop in the global cogeneration equipment market. The power generation industry consumes a significant amount of cogeneration equipment around the world. Following the global recession, there has been a large surge in power usage, resulting in an increase in demand for cogeneration equipment all around the world. COVID, on the other hand, has a slow effect on the cogeneration equipment. Due to the lockdown, fuel production did not halt, resulting in an increase in fuel supply, which increased co-generation directly without affecting the market.

This drop in such businesses resulted in a drop in demand for cogeneration equipment, demonstrating the market's gradual fall. Globally, the construction industry accounts for a substantial portion of cogeneration utilization. Various large projects have been halted due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been blamed on the lockdown. As a result, demand for cogeneration equipment has decreased, resulting in the global market's downturn.
