The global coal fired power generation market reached a volume of 2100 GW in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
A coal fired power station is a type of thermal plant that utilizes the combustion of sub-bituminous and lower volatile coal to generate electricity. It functions by burning coal to generate thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy using various technologies. As coal is easily available and highly cost effective, it represents the most widely used source for electricity production across the globe. Coal fired power plants are also more reliable and safer than their nuclear counterparts.
The escalating demand for energy on account of rapid industrialization and the increasing dependence on electrification across the globe represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. However, coal fired power generation produces huge amounts of polluting gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2) sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). Due to the rising environmental concerns, governing agencies of various counties, along with several energy companies, are investing heavily in research and development (R&D) projects to introduce clean coal technologies. For instance, researchers are developing power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) capabilities that offer a flexible and cost-effective solution to decarbonize the energy production process. Furthermore, the demand for power has declined due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and consequent lockdowns imposed by governments of various countries, which has further resulted in the temporary closure of a number of coal fired power plants. The market is expected to grow once normalcy is regained.
