Ansaldo Energia S.p.A, Capstone Green Energy, Brayton Energy, Bladon Micro Turbine, and Flex Energy Solutions, among others are the major players in the global microturbine market.
The global microturbine market reached a value of about USD 219 million in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 8.5% in the forecast period of 2021-2026, to reach USD 360 million by 2026. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the potential of microturbine systems to run on different fuels.
The use of materials such as thermal barrier coatings and ceramics improves the performance of microturbine systems and, as a result, increases the engine's working temperature. Such technical advancements in microturbine are expected to strengthen the industry even more. As a result, the market will likely gain momentum in the near future, with the increased investment in research and development activities by major OEMs to improve microturbine performance. Furthermore, both power generation plants and customers are constantly looking for cost-effective operations to achieve profitable electricity production and supply.

Over the few years, there has been a greater emphasis on generating energy from renewable and non-polluting sources. As a result, several climate change agreements have been adopted, in addition to the negative repercussions of global warming. Microturbines emit very low levels of sulphur oxide and nitrogen oxide compared to fossil fuels, which is why they are becoming more popular. North America is the largest market for microturbines, followed by Europe and the Asia Pacific. In recent years, the United States has taken the lead in the North American region. Ageing power plants and frequent natural calamities have created tremendous growth opportunities for microturbine demand in this region.
