    What are Floating power plants?

    Floating power plants are developed by integrating marine technology with power generation. Floating power plants are becoming a more advantageous source of power than traditional ones as they can be relocated to areas where electricity is needed. They take up less space as compared to land-based power plants, they can rapidly supply power to areas with limited infrastructure, and they secure power supply in situations of earthquakes and floods. Furthermore, they eliminate the need for infrastructure and pre-feasibility studies, which are required in the case of onshore power plants. They are among the best solutions for powering islands that are deprived of power and cannot build power plants. Their ability to be installed on existing cargo ships eliminates the need to invest in a new one. 

    Market Dynamics

    The industry has been gradually rebounding since 2021, with improvements in the supply chain. Rising end-use sector demand for clean electricity and a global lack of power infrastructure are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. Growing public awareness of the benefits of floating power plants (FPPs), such as quick electricity delivery to areas with inadequate power infrastructure, mobile assets that allow for simple relocation and redundancy of a large site for installation, and the provision of secure power supply during natural disasters, is also expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.  The deployment of FPPs across several regions is anticipated to increase as a result of strict government regulations regarding environmental protection.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The pandemic harmed market growth because it hampered the delivery of equipment to power plants. China, which is among the prominent producers of clean energy technologies including solar panels, wind turbines, and batteries, was highly impacted by the pandemic. Due to the disturbed supply of supporting equipment from China, renewable energy companies were unable to comply with deadlines for equipment installation. Also, due to restrictions on imports and exports, the procurement of raw materials is taking longer, which further increases the lead time.

    Regional Analysis

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World

    Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing region in the market over the next five years.

     

    By Power Source Type

    The floating power plant market is segmented into non-renewable and renewable power sources. The non-renewable power source is expected to remain the dominant power source type in the market during the forecast period, owing to the high-power density, high reliability, and low operating costs of gas turbines or IC Engine-based FPPs. Leading producers place a strong emphasis on developing solutions to the floating gas turbines' limited power output capacity in order to accelerate the segment's growth over the forecast period. 

    By Power Rating Type

    The market is segmented into low-power, medium-power, and high-power floating power plants. The high-power floating power plant is expected to remain the dominant power rating type in the market during the forecast period on account of the significant power needs of South Asian economies, such as China, India, Singapore, and Malaysia. The growth of the floating power plant market is also anticipated to be aided by a growing population and the rapid development of infrastructure in end-use sectors, such as healthcare, manufacturing, and construction.

    Regional Analysis

    Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing market for floating power plant during the forecast period. The lack of adequate power infrastructure and the widespread use of renewable energy sources for power generation in developing economies, such as China and India are cited as the factors for this growth.

    North America is also anticipated to experience significant growth during the forecast period owing to the implementation of strict regulatory reforms focusing on cleaner power generation initiatives. Due to their emphasis on the development of LNG-based power ships that use cleaner fuel, the U.S. and Canada account for the majority of the industry's revenues.
