Global Small Hydropower Market

The global small hydropower market size reached a value of USD 2.11 billion in 2022. During the forecast period of 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.70% to attain a value of around USD 2.48 billion by 2028.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Small hydropower (SHP) is a term used to describe the method of producing electricity by harnessing the kinetic energy of flowing water. In streams, small rivers, or in an existing water supply system such as a drinking water or sewerage network, small hydropower plants are installed. River water flow is used to generate hydropower, which can be used for low- to medium-voltage electrical needs, including lighting and telecommunication. SHP plants have little to no influence on the environment, wildlife, and marine life, when compared to large-scale hydropower systems. 

 

  • In the upcoming years, a significant increase in the production of energy from renewable sources is anticipated to accelerate the small hydropower market expansion. The expanding financial incentives and assistance in the form of subsidies, low-interest loans, renewable purchase obligations, and feed-in tariffs for small hydropower is aiding the market growth.
  • Several technology developments, such as the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) with SHP components, are providing significant impetus to the market development. Despite drastic weather variations, these technologies enable automation and make it possible to produce limited amounts of electricity.
  • Additionally, governments from various developing and underdeveloped countries are initiating more and more programmes to improve rural electrification, which is boosting the small hydropower market growth.
  • In order to efficiently supply electricity in remote locations, governments in the BRIC countries are focusing on increasing industrialisation. The need for small hydropower generators is projected to rise as a result of the absence of grids in such locations. This will have an additional effect on market demand for small hydropower. Small hydropower facilities are also best suited in regions with weak grid access.

 

Global Small Hydropower Market Analysis

Based on capacity, the market is segmented into up to 1 MW and 2- 10 MW, among others. The market on the basis of type can be divided into micro hydropower and mini hydropower. On the basis of component, the market can be segmented into electromechanical equipment, electric infrastructure, and civil works. The regional markets for small hydropower can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

The report gives a detailed analysis of the following major small hydropower companies, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.  

 

  • Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA
  • ANDRITZ AG.
  • Siemens AG
  • Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation ("ESS")
  • Canyon Hydro
  • Others

 

Market Share by Component

Over the course of the forecast period, the market share of the electromechanical equipment segment in the small hydropower market is anticipated to increase significantly. There is a garbage rack cleaning machine in small hydropower plants that removes debris from water to prevent it from entering plant waterways and harming electromechanical equipment or lowering hydraulic performance. The costs of electromechanical equipment used in small hydropower varies from nation to nation depending on the regulations affecting the investment costs, which vary not only from nation to nation but also from region to region. 

 

Additionally, depending on runner diameter and plant capacity for various types of turbines and generators, the cost of various electro-mechanical equipment components has been calculated at current rates.

 

Market Share by Region

During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the global small hydropower market. The market in this region is led by China, Japan, and India. The rapid construction of small hydropower plants in the region is encouraged by the decline in the cost of renewable energy and the infrastructure, which is leading to increased use of mini and micro small hydro facilities in Asia Pacific. The market growth is being further accelerated by the increasing investments in off-grid energy generation and rural electrification in the region.

 

Europe is anticipated to account for the second-largest revenue share. During the historical period, Russia had the highest market share in Europe. Over the forecast period, factors such as growing concerns about greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and rising generation costs from non-renewable resources are anticipated to boost the adoption of small hydropower. The growing population and the rising demand for effective and sustainable energy are anticipated to increase the small hydropower market share. One of the primary reasons influencing the expansion of the regional market is the availability of funding in the European Union for initiatives including energy efficiency and conservation.

 

Competitive Landscape

Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA, headquartered in Germany, operates as a mechanical engineering company. The 1867-founded business provides robotic solutions, hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling, and hydropower components, brake systems, motors, and transmission. In the markets for raw materials, energy, transportation and automotive, paper, Voith establishes standards with its extensive spectrum of systems, products, services, and digital applications.

 

ANDRITZ AG., with its headquarters in Austria, is a supplier of facilities, machinery, and services to the metalworking, hydropower, pulp and paper, steel industries, and  municipal and industrial segments for solid or liquid separation, animal feed, and biomass pelleting.

 

Siemens AG, headquartered in Germany, is a technology firm with a focus on digital transformation, transportation, infrastructure, generation and transmission of electrical power. It is a leader in power generation and distribution, intelligent infrastructure, and distributed energy systems and focuses on automation, digitalisation, and electrification for the process and manufacturing industries.

 

Other market players include Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation ("ESS") and Canyon Hydro, among others.

Key Questions Answered in the Report

The global small hydropower market attained a value of nearly USD 2.11 billion in 2022.

The market for small hydropower is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.70% between 2023 and 2028.

The market is estimated to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period of 2023-2028 to reach USD 2.48 billion by 2028.

The major drivers of the market include the expanding financial incentives, various governments initiatives, increasing investments in off-grid energy generation, and growing concerns about greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

An increase in the production of energy from renewable sources and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) with SHP components are the key industry trends propelling the growth of the market.

The major players in the industry are Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA, ANDRITZ AG., Siemens AG, Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation ("ESS"), and Canyon Hydro, among others.

The microhydro turbine transforms the mechanical energy of flowing water into electrical energy by turning a generator and a shaft. Turbines exist in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they are matched based on requirements, energy goals, stream characteristics, and budget.

Small hydropower systems can offer clean, sustainable, and relatively inexpensive energy. They can be built anywhere there is sufficient water flow and head to support electricity generation, even in remote or undeveloped areas.
