High-Speed Engine Market: Drivers
Rising Demand for Backup Power Generation to Drive Market Growth
The market for uninterrupted power supply is growing rapidly, as is the global demand for reliable power supply. The growing demand for continuous power increases the requirement for backup power generation so that people can access electricity even during outages. The growth of any nation depends on its access to electricity. The EIA's International Energy Outlook 2019 projects that by 2040, the world's energy demand will increase by 2.11% annually. The majority of the increase is anticipated to take place in non-OECD nations like China and India. Global power capacity increased relatively quickly between 2010 and 2018, outpacing the rate at which the transmission and distribution network was expanding. This results in reliability problems like power surges and outages. Power outages and voltage variations are more common in established and emerging regions. The market for high-speed engines will expand due to the increasing requirement for consistent, uninterrupted electricity for power regeneration.
Rising Trend of Distributed Power Generation to Drive Market Growth
With the expansion of the transmission and distribution networks that link supply and demand, the development of high-speed engines for power generation will quicken. This network growth and technical developments will result in increased network density, flexibility, and economics. High-speed engines outperform conventional distributed power generation technologies for on-site generating and backup power requirements due to their superior efficiency and stable generation capacity. As a result, makers of high-speed engines can anticipate profitable opportunities due to the development in distributed power generation.
High-Speed Engine Market: Restraints
Stringent Regulations on Environment by Government to Hamper Market Growth
The growing environmental impact of automobiles has long been a concern, which is why governments worldwide are issuing regulations to fight the escalating pollution. For instance, the UK government has planned a ban on new gasoline and diesel cars beginning in 2030 as part of the new PM's green strategy. The rule is intended to combat climate change and generate employment in the nuclear industry. Such rules based on environmental effects may eventually impede commercial expansion. USEPA has set restrictions to control air emissions from stationary and mobile sources following the USA's Clean Air Act. High-speed engine sales may decline due to the policies established by the act to prevent air pollution. The government is investing in electric vehicles and launching numerous measures to promote them, which may impact the traditional speed engine business either directly or indirectly. These elements can limit the market's ability to adopt high-speed engines.
