The world continues to increase its electricity consumption at an alarming rate, and the use of pollution-triggering fossil fuels such as coal continues to give the world's electrical power generation industry a black eye. Newer combined-cycle gas turbine electrical power generation systems, which are much more efficient and have a substantially reduced carbon footprint, have taken the industry by storm. These modern power systems not only reduce pollution; they have greatly increased the production efficiency of electrical power generation by utilizing the heat from the exhaust of the primary gas turbine engine to heat scrubbing water for an additional closed-loop steam turbine engine.

A diverse group of both well-known and lesser-known gas turbine manufacturers compete in the gas turbine electric power generation market. The larger, more well-recognized players in this market segment are GE Energy, Siemens, Alstom, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and Solar. These manufacturers are flanked by a lesser known group that includes Bharat Heavy Electricals, Daihatsu, Hitachi, and Safran.

This market study helps you to comprehend the dynamics of this market, in which 19 global manufacturers produce more than 50 unique models of gas turbine electrical power generation engines. This report studies the gas turbine electrical power generation market from multiple angles. The analyst first conducts a bottom-up, micro-level study to develop 10-year unit and value of production forecasts for each program or system, and then utilizes a top-down, macro-level approach to produce a forecast of each manufacturer's overall percent market share, again in terms of both units and value. This report divides the market into two segments.

The "Heavy" machines are those with output of 15,000 shp (11,185 kW) and greater, while the "Light" machines have a power output of up to 15,000 shp.
