Market research analysts at Technavio predict the global combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) market to grow steadily over the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 4% by 2020. Though the rising awareness towards the need for the reduction of carbon emissions have resulted in the shift towards renewable energy, the high initial costs associated with their installation challenge their adoption. This will be one of the major factors driving the growth of the combined cycle gas turbine market, as CCGTs offer lower power installation costs than both renewable and nuclear energy. The US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkley National Lab has stated that the capacity-weighted average installed project cost for wind energy was $1,630/kW in 2013. Whereas, the power installation cost per KW in the case of gas turbines is only around $500. Moreover, gas turbine power plants are mainly driven by natural gas, which will also increase their adoption, since they offer clean energy when compared to other power generation sources such as fossil fuel.
The increasing concerns towards the depletion of natural resources and the reduction of harmful emissions will result in the introduction of regulations that will demand the implementation and adoption of technologies such as gas turbines for power generation. The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has already passed the Clean Power Plan to reduce CO₂ emissions from power plants by 30% by 2030. Also, 195 member states of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change signed the Paris Agreement in 2015 that aims to limit the rise in global temperature below 3.6°F (2°C) in the 21st century. Since the combined cycle gas turbine have the potential to reduce emissions from power plants and also improve the efficiency of power generation, there will be an increasing adoption of combined cycle gas turbine power plants in the coming years.
The market is mature and characterized by the presence of a small number of combined cycle gas turbine manufacturers who occupy large market shares. Major vendors such as GE, Siemens, and MHPS account for more than 80% of the total market share. Vendors mainly focus on the efficiency of their turbines and constantly make investments in their R&D to increase their turbines’ efficiencies to differentiate themselves from and have a competitive edge over their competitors. Turbine manufacturers have also started concentrating on providing aftermarket services such as maintenance for their high-efficiency gas turbines. To gain a considerable share of the market, major manufacturers have also started undertaking the expansion of manufacturing facilities for gas turbines. New entrants and small regional players often get acquired by the major players and this industry research report predict that this trend will continue in coming years as well.
The leading vendors in the market are -
According to this market research and analysis, the heavy-duty design segment accounted for more than 87% total market shares and dominated the industry during 2015. The rapid replacement of coal-based power generation capacities with natural gas-based CCGT capacities is identified to be the major reason for the growth of this market segment. Analysts predict that this market segment will continue its dominance throughout the forecast period as well.
This market study predicts that in terms of geography, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the combined cycle gas turbine market throughout the forecast period, and also estimates that the region will account for more than 48% of the total market shares by 2020. The growth of the market will mainly attribute to the rise in demand from the developing countries such as India and China, where there is a constant need for efficient and reliable power to sustain their economic growth as well as to protect the environment.

The generation of electric power involves mechanical energy which converts the fuel energy using a generator. The overall efficiency of the conversion rate could be as low as 30% based on the fuel type and thermodynamic process. In other words, two-third of latent energy present in the fuel is wasted away. For example, the steam electric power plants that use boilers to combust a fossil fuel have an average of 33% efficiency. In the case of natural gas, the overall efficiency rate is up to 30% while it is 25% with fuel oil, in cycle gas turbine (GTs) plants. Most of the wasted energy produced after combustion ends up in the form of thermal energy in the hot exhaust gases. A combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant utilizes gas turbine and is the most common type of combined cycle power plant.
