A Better Approach To Natural Gas Fired Electricity Generation Industry

Posted by Mrudula Anil Karmarkar on May 2nd, 2022

The global natural gas fired electricity generation market demand is expected to reach 70,500.0 MW by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 4.71% from 2020 to 2027. Rising government support, growing energy demand across the world, and a rise in natural gas production are various factors boosting industry growth.

Worldwide power demand is rapidly growing owing to strong economic growth in some of the major countries globally. Furthermore, the growth was powered by countries, such as the U.S., China, Japan, and India, which account for a dominating share in the world’s energy demand. Countries are looking to opt for natural gas as a power generation source over coal owing to fewer carbon emissions being emitted by natural gas. Industry participants are entering into various strategic collaborations with the governments of some of the countries to aid them to renovate and modernize the power sector of the respective countries. Furthermore, vendors are utilizing joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions in order to develop advanced technologies and expand their foothold across various regional markets.

However, the production of natural gas is concentrated in a few countries, which results in the risk of gas supply disruptions owing to geopolitical tensions, eventually affecting trade and supply of natural gas. Furthermore, the rise in adoption of renewable energy technologies is estimated to hamper the growth of the market in the forecast period.

The rise in environmental concerns regarding the high amount of carbon emissions from coal-based power generation plants has resulted in making natural gas fired power plants a cleaner option for baseload power generation. Furthermore, supporting regulations and policies for power generation using natural gas is the main factor driving the market in some of the major countries around the world. Some of the major countries around the world are planning to make natural gas the major power generation source by replacing coal with it. Natural gas production has been on the rise in the U.S. owing to technology advancement for the extraction of natural gas from shale gas reserves.
