Natural Gas-Fired Electricity Generation Market – Segmentation Assessment

Segment Overview

Technavio has segmented the market based on type (CGCT and OCGT), and end-user (residential, commercial, and industrial)

  • The market share growth by the CGCT segment will be significant during the forecast period. The combined cycle is called the integration of different thermodynamic energy production processes. The combined cycle electric generating system consists of a combination of combustion turbines and steam turbines, which act as power units. CCGT performance exceeds OCGT. The current trend emphasizes the improved efficiency (temperature reduction) that can be achieved through larger combined cycle power units. Hence, these factors are expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period.

Geography Overview

By geography, the natural gas-fired electricity generation market is segmented into North America, APAC, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and South America. The report provides actionable insights and estimates the contribution of all regions to the growth of the natural gas-fired electricity generation market.

  • North America is estimated to contribute 55% to the growth of the global market during the forecast period. The US was the main contributor to the market in the regionThis is because due to the shale gas boom in the US, natural gas production in the region has increased significantly. The majority of electricity produced, according to the US EIA, is generated from fossil fuels. For example, in 2020, natural gas generated 38% of all electricity generated in the country, which is the highest percentage. Hence, these factors are expected to drive market growth in the region during the forecast period.

Natural Gas-Fired Electricity Generation Market – Market Dynamics

Key Driver

The increasing natural gas production is a key factor driving market growth. Due to the rising supply of tight gas, shale gas, and coalbed methane, natural gas is now the fossil fuel with the fastest rate of growth. The global supply of natural gas has expanded since 2008 as a result of effective shale oil and gas extraction in countries like the US. Russia, the second-largest producer of natural gas in the world behind the US, has enormous untapped natural gas production capability on the Yamal peninsula. The growth in natural gas output globally means that natural gas will be easily accessible for use in producing electricity. Hence, these factors are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Major Trend

A shift to gas generators is a major trend in the market. 

Significant Challenge

The environmental concerns associated with the combustion of natural gas is a significant challenge restricting market growth.
