The global turbine market was valued at USD 135.68 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach USD 191.87 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 4.89% from 2014 to 2020. Volumetrically, this accounts to 5,792.97 Gigawatts (GW) in terms of installed turbine capacity in 2013, which may amount to approximately 7,468.84 GW by 2020. Asia Pacific alone accounted for 40.4% of the overall market share in 2013, valued at USD 42.89 billion (2,341.19 GW). The region is expected to reach market capitalization to the tune of USD 68.57 billion (3,499.14 GW), growing at a rate of 5.81% from 2014 to 2020. With a large number of infrastructure and oil field development projects planned across the globe, the demand for steam turbines in the market is anticipated to be dominant till 2020. The demand for turbines is likely to increase significantly owing to the rapidly developing hydrocarbons sector along with various upcoming mega power projects.

Generating power is the prime reason behind an increased demand for turbines. A turbine is a piece of equipment designed and built for efficient power generation using a viable source, such as coal and natural gas in fossil sources, and wind and water in renewable ones. The source feed is ignited and the resulting pressure is directed through nozzles to drive the turbine blades, in case of impulse turbines. For reaction turbines, the feed material e.g. air in case of wind turbines and rivers or dams in case of hydropower ones, goes ‘through’ the blades to drive the turbine.
Currently, governments of nations facing persistent power shortages are taking measures to constantly upgrade their power generation capacity in order to meet the demand from industries and households. Many new power plants that are primarily powered by steam and gas turbines are under the process of being commissioned, while construction of few is currently ongoing. There is also the renewable energy sector, which has gained rapid momentum over the last few years.
