Global Hydropower Generation Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.05% During 2022-2027, Aided by Rising Investments into the Development of Various Hydropower Plants in Emerging Economies

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Hydropower Generation Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global hydropower generation market attained a value of more than USD 210.7 billion in 2021. The market is further expected to grow in the forecast period of 2022-2027 at a CAGR of 6.05% to reach over USD 299.70 billion by 2027.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to hold a significant share in the overall growth of hydropower generation in the coming years. This can be associated with the rising investments into the establishment of various hydropower generation facilities in countries like India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, and China, among other countries within the region. In line with the increasing environmental concerns, depleting fossil reserves, and rising air pollutions in the region, the demand for cleaner energy is fuelling the market growth in the region. In addition, the rising infrastructural projects in the region, on account of rapid industrialisation and urbanisation, are pressing the demand for electricity, which is another factor stimulating the market growth of hydropower generation in the Asia Pacific region.

In September 2021, the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved a loan to develop Indonesia’s first pumped-storage hydropower plant, aiming to improve power generation capacity during peak demand while supporting the country’s energy transition and decarbonisation goals. The financing would support the construction of the Upper Cisokan pumped storage hydropower plant, to be located between Jakarta and Bandung. The establishment would have significant power generation capacity to meet peak demand and provide significant storage capacity to meet the growing energy requirements of Jakarta and Bandung consumers. Furthermore, pumped storage hydropower plays a crucial role in decarbonising efforts. Therefore, such initiatives are stimulating the overall growth of the market. The market growth can further be associated with the expansion strategies employed by leading market players like Tata Power Corporation (NSE: TATAPOWER).

Market Analysis by Capacity and Region:

  • Based on capacity, the market can be categorised into small hydropower plant (up to 1MW), medium hydropower plant (1MW - 10MW), and large hydropower plant (Above 10MW).
  • The major regional markets for hydropower generation include North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

Key Findings of the Report:

  • The market growth can be associated with the surging focus on renewable forms of energy to reduce dependency on depleting fossil fuels and reduce carbon and GHG emissions.
