Steam turbines are rotary heat engines used for conversion of thermal energy of steam to mechanical energy or to electrical energy. The components of steam turbine include boiler, turbine, condenser, feed pump, and other auxiliary devices. Steam Engines are primarily used for powering electrical generators. Most of the electricity generation in the world is through the use of steam turbines. Steam turbines are used in almost all modern and future thermal power plants. The different types of steam engines include impulse turbines and reaction turbines. Modern steam engines use a combination of impulse and reaction turbines.
The growing consumption of electricity across the world primarily drives the growth of the steam turbine market. There has been an increased focus on non-conventional energy utilization, which supports the steam turbine market growth. The strong growth in the industrial sector, and increasing investment for generating thermal power capacity expansion boosts the adoption of steam turbines. There has been an increasing demand for combined cycle and co-generation, supplementing the growth of steam turbine market. There has been an increased demand of steam turbines in emerging economies owing to development and industrialization. Global players are expanding their business in developing regions to increase their customer base and improve the geographical outreach.
