According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Hydropower Market is accounted for $77.81 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $108.39 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. Hydropower is a type of power or an energy that is extracted from the energy of fast running water or the falling water. As it is obtained from water force, it is known as renewable energy. Hydropower has one of the highest conversion rates of any known source of energy. Water harvesting maturely can enable millions of people have access to energy. A stable, dependable, and inexpensive energy supply is also essential for promoting economic progress and eradicating global poverty.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Rising demand for reliable electricity


Factors such as the increasing number of new hydropower projects backed by government support and the rising demand for reliable electricity are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Restraint:

Large initial investments and operating expenses


Hydropower projects' severe environmental impacts are expected to stymie market expansion throughout the projected period. However, issues such as the need for large capital and operating expenditures, as well as extended gestation periods, are likely to stymie the market's expansion in the future years.

Opportunity:

Emerging technical developments


In the coming years, emerging technical developments targeted at boosting hydropower generation should create substantial opportunities for the market value.

Threat:

Concerns regarding safety


Various safety concerns, as well as the development of contemporary technologies and the launch of alternative products, may create challenges for the worldwide market

The large hydropower segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Large-scale hydropower is a form of renewable energy generation derived from flowing water, which is used to drive large water turbines. In order to generate large amounts of hydroelectricity for cities, lakes, reservoirs, and dams are needed to store and regulate water for later release for power generation, irrigation, domestic or industrial use. Since large-scale hydropower facilities can easily be turned on and off, hydropower has become more reliable than most other energy sources for meeting peak electricity demands throughout the day.
Conventional hydroelectric dams, pumped storage, and run-of-the-river are the different types of large-scale hydropower plants across the world.

The pumped storage hydro (PSH) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

As the leading renewable energy sources like solar and wind are challenging to predict, it is helpful to use the pumped hydro storage to provide 24-hour electricity to a region without the usage of alternate non-eco-friendly sources like thermal plants in the process. This use is being utilized and exploited by countries in the region and is expected to aid the growth of the segment.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the investments in rural electrification and off-grid energy generation. China, Vietnam, and India are the world’s fastest-growing economies, contributing mainly to the Asia Pacific market. Aside from the big hydroelectric countries, smaller Southeast Asian countries are also making significant progress in massive hydropower development.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the increasing investments in hydropower plants and increasing demand for renewable energy. The US is the largest user of hydropower in the region and also a considerable user of modern water energy storage systems like the pumped hydro storage. The government is pushing to increase the installed hydro capacity of the country.

Key players in the market

Some of the key players profiled in the Hydropower Market include General Electric, ABB Ltd, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd, Tata Power Corporation, Andritz AG, Voith Group, Georgia Power, Duke Energy, MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company, Ontario Power Generation, Nepal Electricity Authority, BC Hydro, Acciona Energia, S.A, Statkraft, and Axpo.

Key developments:

In October 2020: Axpo announced that the repairs, inspections, and maintenance on the Kraftwerke Sarganserland power plants occur by digital rather than analogical means. The first digital hydropower plant in Switzerland follows a 360-degree approach and has fully integrated digital processes.

In May 2020: Voith and Icelandic national power company Landsvirkjun embarked on a joint pilot project on innovative cavitation monitoring in hydropower plants. The technology group installed the inventive system, an add-on function for its OnCare.Health Hydro conditioning monitoring at the Budarhals hydropower plant in Iceland.

In July 2019: GE Renewable Energy started offering modular turbines for micro hydro power, following its recent partnership with Energy. The micro hydropower units were made available in 10 kW and 15 kW sizes and could be combined to offer solutions up to 1 MW.
