The Floating Power Plant Market is expected to reach USD 2,371.8 Million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2021 and 2028. The rising demand for power and the lack of power infrastructure coupled with several benefits overpower plants based on land as they do not have land acquisition-related problems and energy efficiency mandates are some factors fuelling the market growth.  

Key Findings:    

  • The Non-renewable is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.2% over the forecast period. The high power density, high reliability, as well as fewer operating costs in the gas turbines or IC Engine based FPPs, driving the market growth. The manufacturers are focusing on overcoming the less power output capacity of the floating gas turbines.
  • The high-power segment held a market share of around 58% in 2020. The segment held its dominant position during the forecast period driven by the rising demand in Asian economies, like India, China, Malaysia, and Singapore, at a large scale coupled with increasing population and development of the infrastructure in end-use industries, such as manufacturing, construction, and healthcare.
  • Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a CAGR of over 7.28% from 2021 to 2028. The growth in this region is driven by the lack of power infrastructure and a higher adoption rate in renewable energy sources for power generation in countries, like India and China.

Some of the major players in the Floating Power Plant Market include Wartsila, Siemens AG, Caterpillar, Inc., General Electric Company, Floating Power Plant A/S, Ciel & Terre International, Ideol, Principle Power, Inc., Kyocera Corporation, Upsolar, Yingli Solar, Vikram Solar Pvt., Ltd., MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, and Mitsubishi Corporation.

The floating power plants act as distributed power sources having higher efficiency with stability. The power source has the capacity to respond to steep load fluctuation as well as offers quick start-up. These plants are suitable for seasonal and periodic operations provide grid stabilization for various kinds of renewable energy. Additionally, the rising awareness of the benefits, such as electricity supply to regions is fast with the limited power infrastructure coupled with no requirement for a large site, and the provision of secure power supply during natural disasters, are some of the factors boosting the market growth. Floating power plants in comparison to conventional land-based systems have a minimal environmental impact and less area of coastal or up-river land is required.

Europe is expected to record the higher CAGR. The presence of several players across the region such as Floating Power Plant A/S, Siemens Gas and Power GmbH & Co., Wartsila, Ideol, and MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, is propelling the deployment in the region at large-scale.
